A Friend in Need...

I am running a fund-raiser for a friend of over 45 years.  We have a GoFundMe Campaign set up, but since there doesn't seem to be a good way to show the incentives, and we've gotten some nice ones, I intend to show them here.

The quick story is that my friend Patty Sigman has worked hard her entire life, but she's waving the white flag right now.  In the middle of her second bout of cancer (breast before, now multiple myeloma), she found her beloved husband Mark unresponsive 8 days ago.  He's been disabled from Lyme disease for several years, but now it looks like perhaps myasthenia gravis was also working away on him.  He was disconnected from life support 2 days ago, but seems to be rallying.  And she's handling all this while on chemo herself.
I could go on and on about what a wonderful person she is, but will settle with this:  we have been friends since we were 13, and have never had a cross word between us.  Now, that isn't my doing.  It is hers. 
So on to the incentives!  Please order them from the campaign link in the first sentence.  I'm providing their website links so that you can get the details AND because you should look around these websites whose owners have been so generous.
First, we have a truly wondrous bath powder from Nature's Gift and the container will last for 15 to 20 baths.
Richly infused with pure Rose Otto, well... read about it here:  Rose Bliss Bath  

Next, we have some amazing oil-free organic face magic!  From Lillian's Organics:

Read all about it here: Superfruit Smoothie

We also have a NEW, as yet unreleased book by Gail Faith Edwards (mine's already on order!) that is long awaited by the herbal community "Herbal Pharmacy - The Art of Herbal Medicine Making"
It will be shipped in early May, and you can read all about it on the Blessed Maine Herbs site!

I have personally put up several books, subscriptions, and also the violet sugar scrub we made last week -
Maryanne put up soaps, and is working on some jewelry.  We will be adding more as things come in, so follow us to see what's new.

Just FYI - it doesn't seem like I can assign more than one incentive the same price, so I have to add a dollar here and there to avoid having 2 $20 incentives (for instance).  For something like this, I'm not going to fret about that, but wanted to let you know why we're doing that.

I would like to contribute a set of 4 jars of herbs from my gardens. Basil (mix of 5 kinds basil), Marjoram, rosemary, thyme and tarragon. The jars are a set of Ball jars with sprinkle flip lids with a label.

Wow - thanks!
Can you send me an email ( with the value and if possible a picture? We're doing a festival for the next couple days, and I'll be updating the fund on Sunday.
