      October 2005
      Dear Readers,
      How is your fall going. Mine is wonderful. The leaves are changing. The
      temperatures have FINALLY dropped, and my electric bill is FINALLY under
      65 dollars since we don't have to have the air conditioning going 24/7!
      Hopefully you are enjoying this season, one of my favorites.
      I hope that my recent articles have been interesting as they seem to have
      piqued your curiosity as the traffic and newsletter hits are increasing!
      Next month i will celebrate my 1 year Anniversary here at Bella Online,
      and I want to thank each and every one of you for the year we have had
      together. I have enjoyed writing and conversing with each of you. You are
      my stress relief and I am glad to be the voice in the Bella world that
      represents our community.
      With this time of the year, we start to think of family and friends and
      reflect on the months that have passed in anticipation for the coming
      year. This is also when the poorest of our community begin to worry about
      how they will pay for their utilities, keep a roof over their heads, and
      make sure their children enjoy the holidays as much as everyone else does.
      That is why I am starting a drive to adopt a family for this thanksgiving
      season. I will also be doing a drive to adopt a child for this christmas
      season as well. That is why i am writing to each and every one of you. We
      take for granted the ability to sit in our warm homes and enjoy one of the
      largest meals of the year. We take for granted that the roof over our head
      and our bills will be paid for. What we forget is there are people out
      there who constantly worry about the simplest things that we all take for
      granted. Will I have a full stomach tomorrow? Will I pass out because I
      have skipped eating for days to allow my children to have full stomachs?
      Will I still have a job because I am missing work days due to illnesses
      since I cannot afford to heat my home properly? These are the things that
      families who are less fortunate worry about. This is also something I feel
      strongly about to ask your help. Like I previously said, I would love to
      have us come together as a Bella GLBT community and adopt a family for
      thanksgiving, and adopt some children for christmas. In order to do this I
      have set up an amazon honor system and a paypal donations account. There
      are well over 700 subscribers to this newsletter, and it would be
      wonderful if we could forgo a couple of cups of Starbuicks or a soda or
      two to help out a family in need. That's only a few bucks, and I know we
      can spare it. So would you please help me this season make sure someone
      has the ability to enjoy at least one holiday like the rest of us. Help me
      let a child know that even though things look bad now, people care for
      them and things will be better in the future. Help me give a child the
      light to see their way through the darkness of despair.
      If you'd like to help out, please follow these links. You choose which
      you'd like to do, amazon or paypal. Come together as a community and help
      those less fortunate.
      I thank you for your continued readership and hope that you find it in
      your heart to help me help others this fall season. Each year my school
      does a Fall Harvest, but it is never enough. There are more people out
      there that the food pantries can't help. Let us come together and help out
      more than just giving a few cans of food we really don't like and would
      rather pass off on someone else.
      Ha-shem's blessings to you and your family.
