2.0 is not a fan of ambiguity

To make a long story short, the not-for profit autism intervention service that I founded three years ago is in danger of going under.  Partly due to a long string of non-paying parents, and partly due to a chronically ill, depressed, and mentally spazztastic director.  That would be me.  I’m the chronically ill, currently a lil bit depressed, and often spazztastic director.


And I’m going to hold the internet hostage until I can find twenty thousand dirhams to renew my business license next month.

And by hostage, I mean I’m on break from twitter, FB, and heavy blogging until I can keep my ship from going under.

No need to comment, unless you’re one of those rich UAE sheikhs who gives people cars as hostess gifts.  Or a person who wants to send me money for some strange reason.

So I’m really sorry, but I’m mentally in so many places that I haven’t the brain cells to be here as well as there.

And I’m sad and scared and praying that Allah saves AutismUAE as well as my sanity.  And I’d be grateful if you could too.

    Assalamu Alaikum Madame,
    i would like to send Autism UAE 1,000 AED. Now, i appreciate that this is only a 20th of what you need, but, according to my calculations, if 19 people send 1,000 AED or more, each (if they are of the ‘rich variety’ of persons :D)
    then you would have the said number of monies required 😀
    In’sha Allah,
    lub You x 🙂

    AssalamuAlaikum Ladies- I’m so very, very touched and very very grateful. For all of your real people, I owe you some serious hugs and duas. For all of you internet people, serious duas and Jannah hugs. The Director of Finance- aka HF- will be in touch with everyone who wants to help.

    Thank you again. May Allah bless you and reward you for easing the distress of another Muslim, and be Merciful as you have intended mercy to others, and Kind as you have intended kindness with others.

    Dear lovely lady, I’m just now catching up on your blog, and I’m sorry you have soo many stressful things to juggle and deal with. I cannot give much, but I would like to give something. I have been so inspired by your stories about Khalid and about AutismUAE over the years, and I’d be honored to give back, even if unfortunately in a small way, as a thankyou to you for consistently reminding me of what’s truly important.
