Have you signed the petition?

In the last 24 hours, we have seen the petition signatures climb from 18,000 to almost 66,000!  Kate Livingston, on Twitter @NMWriterofWords, told me today that 20/20 and Nightline both re-tweeted the petition link!  Please follow Kate and re-tweet all her tweets in reference to Cindi's story!  Kate is doing an excellent job at getting the word out about the petition!

If you have not signed the petition, please see the link to the right, just below the three news stories from WCNC.

We are asking that if everyone would donate just $1, we could pull the Davis's out of this nightmare they are finding themselves in.  We only have one issue with this that I need to figure out first.  Fees.


I am seriously thinking about changing the way we collect donations.  PayPal's fees don't seem to be that much, but when you add up what they've received from us so far, it just seems like we're throwing money away.

The fee for PayPal is 2.9% plus a .30 cent tranaction fee. So, if you give $1 via PayPal,  .33 cents is taken in fees.  If you give $20,  .88 cents is taken.  A $100 donation has a fee of $3.20.

So you see, I'd like to ask that with each signature on the petition, you'd generously give $1.00 but PayPal would take .33 cents!

If we were able to become a non-profit organization, PayPal would waive fees but this is not possible as per the IRS, the funds would have to benefit more than one single individual.

If anyone has an idea of a better means to collect donations without the fees, please let me know!

Please keep in mind that when you donate directly to the Bank of America,  100% of the money goes to Cindi and Kirk!  You MUST give them the name of the trust.  For some strange reason, the Bank of America has a policy of not allowing trustees to post the name of the trust on blogs, Facebook, etc.  It is only allowed to be given out via email or on news sites.

So, please email me at and I will give you the name of the trust.  I would love to post it here but do not want Bank of America to shut down my account with them.

Thank you all for visiting the website and helping to spread the word!  Signatures are WONDERFUL but we need your donations also!

God bless you all!
