A Message From Debra

I understand that some may find my methods unorthodox or tasteless.

And to that I say:

How many kids have you sent to camp again?

Believe it or not, pissing Nicole off is just the frosting on the pancake left in a bag in the hot sun for me.

It’s not the underlying reason.

It’s not the driving motivation.

It’s not what draws me to devote hours daily to this campaign.

The fact that a child that would otherwise not be able to will get to experience a sleep away camp for a week is all the drive I need.

I have an rare opportunity offered up by Sally to reach an extensive audience who , in her words, would like a small piece of this story.

One day that is what this will be, a story, a distant memory.

It would be foolish of me to not capitalize on the audiences willingness to participate and support this crazy idea I had for getting thrown off facebook for 30 days, courtesy of Nicole, who by the way, shared a SS of the offensive post to her page. That’s how distraught she was over it.

You are amazing and inspiring

Thank you, everyone, for helping me and Sally support underprivileged kids.

Debby aka ElMacho

  1. Debra is the best. I cannot sing her praises enough. This is just a small window into the compassionate and giving nature of Debra. She is also the energizer bunny. I have never met anyone who works so long and so much for the benefit of people, children, animals and just about everything. Her talents are not just artistic they are spiritual too. She can take any kind of crap and spin it into gold. I count myself lucky to have met her and to occasionally bask in her energy field. Then I have to go take a nap. Lol.

    Debra thank you and I love you.

  2. Someone told me a long time ago that’s it’s not always the people that we meet along the way, but the people that we meet through them that change our lives. Sometimes the Nicoles and Joes are just catalysts.
    Thanks for all that all of you do!

  3. I have a sneaking suspicion I know who Deb is addressing with this post. Mostly.

    I used this quote before for those who are bitching and moaning and groaning about the interview with Ron Sneed – and worse – who are now stating outright that they think it never happened and want it right away, their way. Meanwhile, I don’t think any of them actually have any firsthand experience making a film. At least not since fourth or fifth grade when they might have been making stop-action claymation films. Remember that it took forever to get even five minutes of footage?

    Same holds true for fundraising for a charity. If you have a better, more effective, morally superior manner to raise the money – do so. I haven’t seen it in action yet.

    Anton Ego: In many ways, the work of a critic is easy. We risk very little, yet enjoy a position over those who offer up their work and their selves to our judgment. We thrive on negative criticism, which is fun to write and to read. But the bitter truth we critics must face, is that in the grand scheme of things, the average piece of junk is probably more meaningful than our criticism designating it so.
