Greetings from a soggy Tink World!
Well, the rain has come and it has been plentiful. Days like today are good days to stay at home and snuggle with the kids or animals. They aren't good for much else.
As many of you know, we have been raising money through GoFundMe and several raffles to help Tink get Stem Cell Treatment. For those of you that missed it, the winner of the 30 lb. Tink's Beef Family Pack was a Decatur customer Genevieve Edwards. She was already collected her winnings. The Nerium raffle winner was LeAnne Matthews of Washington, GA. The raffle for $1000 or a .308 went to Russ Johnson of Washington, GA.
We met with Russ last Friday so that he could collect his winnings. Russ turned right around and gave it back to Tink. He said that he wanted to do what he could to get Tink the help she needs. That's the true spirit of giving and right here at Christmas.
We've known Russ for a while. He is part of the group that hunts at the farm. They help keep the wild pigs at bay. So, it really wasn't a surprise that he'd want to give the money back to Tink. That's just the kind of guy he is.
So far, we've raised about $10,000 of our $15,000 goal! That is amazing! Tink will be scheduling her appointment for treatment in February. We don't have the exact date yet. That's to be determined. We do know that it will happen very soon thanks to all of you.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, to all of you who have helped make this possible. Whether you donated, bought tickets, shared the information with others or prayed. It has all been for a good cause. We will keep you posted on the date once the appointment is booked.
As for markets, we are finished for the year. Unless you purchase on Athens or Augusta Locally Grown, we will see you in the new year! We plan to attend the Decatur Farmers Market on the first and third Wednesdays. So, we'll see you on January 4th from 4-7 p.m. at the same location.
Happy Holidays from Team Tink!
