Do you have a dream?

Dear Friends and Family,

Happy Friday, first and foremost! The weekend awaits as the final hours of the workday linger-- seperating many from 9-to-5 and a few days of freedom. The sweet baby for whom I am a nanny is currently taking her afternoon nap, so I decided now would be the best time to write this blog post. Reason being, I need your help.

There are two types of people in this world: the ones that can ask for help with ease, and the ones that struggle to do so. I'm the latter, and it takes everything in me to say, "Okay, I forfeit. I can't do this alone." Well, here I am, saying exactly that.

It's been almost nine months since I established Not Your Average Nanny Magazine. With the exception of a few generous donations, I have been financing the launch of this magazine out of my own pocket. I'm a nanny and a freelance writer. A lot has happened since launching NYAN, some very exciting, and some awfully difficult and tragic-- all of which required extreme financial attention. That being said, there is only a little bit of a hop, skip, and a jump left to fully launching NYAN and securing the trademark, and I am in need of a little help.

To create a magazine has always been my ultimate dream, for as long as I can remember. I am finally doing it-- bringing it to life-- and I'm so close, yet so far, from really making this thing shine. If my family and friends can come together and assist me in these final steps, I will be forever grateful. This is me doing what is so hard for me to do-- admitting that I need you right now.

I've created a t-shirt campaign to raise the needed funds for Not Your Average Nanny Magazine. The t-shirts are $25 [the lowest recommended amount], and they are available in every size from children's XS to adult's XXXXL. If you could please assist me in bringing my dream to life by purchasing a t-shirt, it would mean more to me than you know. My dream is on the line here, and if I didn't truly need the help-- if it wasn't crucial-- trust me, I wouldn't ask at all. But, it is. And I hope with all my heart that you will find it in yours to grab a t-shirt in support of my dream coming to life.

We have so many exciting things planned for the new year-- major interviews lined up; great new spotlights; fantastic features to be read. In order to do all of this, we just need a little bit of help.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog post. I am so grateful to have come this far with my magazine, and I am hopeful that we will continue onward with a little help from our friends and family. *If you purchase a t-shirt or donate to the fundraiser, you will be featured in the December issue of NYAN as our way of saying thank you for believing in this magazine.

Thank you for believing in my dream.

Your All-Write Nanny,

Brittney Schering
