I’ve had several emails today asking if I know Mike W. of Marissa’s Bunny personally.
Trevy’s blog was linked on her site. Although it’s not now.
I’ve posted here and there at his request. Because…well…we’re a community. Us IS families. And Marissa is wicked cute. Her daddy has a way with words. Also who wouldn’t want the world to know about an iPad give-away?
But aside from that…I know about as much as you do.
We’ve never met in person.
Our only communication has been cyber.
I’m a ginormous sap and as such would love to believe that all is right. That the sweet, beautiful families who were promised iPads will be getting them tonight. Tomorrow at the latest. That no one has been lied to. That the personal thank you for your generosity email I sent him on behalf of other IS families I’ve grown to love and was thrilled to learn were promised iPads…wasn’t in vain. That it’s all a big misunderstanding. That our children aren’t being exploited yet again. Because if they are…this is right up there with Questcor as far as I’m concerned. It would make me sick to think I helped send generous people his way only to learn their generosity has been abused. I’m removing those posts until the truth is known in full. I hope to God that we can all have a great big laugh when this is over because 50 families are now the proud new owners of therapeutic iPads.
I’m desperate to believe that.
Just like you are.
