I have asked the kids what they would do if they had a freezer. Of course the first response is ICE CREAM!!! Obviously having a freezer will change our lives, but honestly, the mom in me is just looking forward to buying food food food.
Our campaign is doing well. Twenty two folks have given towards our freezer and food campaign. We have reached 85% of our goal!!
I thought I would take a moment to explain the details of what this means. We are buying a small chest freezer kit that includes an inverter and solar panels to run it. We will have the ability to make ice and freeze butter, bread, meals, etc... The entire setup will cost between $2,500-$3,000 because that is how it is buying solar stuff, unfortunately.
We are not getting a refrigerator at this time because it would cost another $3,000. However, we think the freezer will be adequate for now. With that said, the other $3k we are raising is for food. We want to prepare ourselves and other folks for potential 'lock down' in case there is conflict between local tribes after the elections. Already, tensions are high, but we hope for peace.
If you have any questions, we are always here to answer them!! Thank you for your continued love and support.
