It Takes A Village!

In two days, Saturday, July 18, my 9-year-old niece, Lily, will be climbing 3000 stairs at Denver Bronco stadium to raise money to cure Cystic Fibrosis.

Lily is on the right, hugging her 4-year-old sister (who will ride in a backpack on my sister’s back while my sister and brother-in-law also climb the 3000 stairs!)

You may remember we have two dear friends who are now in their early 30’s and have Cystic Fibrosis.  Lily is climbing for them.

I have a goal to help Lily raise $1000 in the next 2 days.  Can you help?

Your donation through Paypal will be transferred directly to Lily’s climb fund, which will go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Let’s surprise Lily and help her raise $1000!!!  But we only have until tomorrow night because she starts climbing at 8 am Saturday morning!

Here’s how you can help:  Click the donation button anywhere on this post before 10 pm tomorrow (Friday) night to donate to The Goat Cheese Lady’s CF Climb fund for Lily!!  Whatever amount you can donate will help us reach the $1,000 goal!!!

Thanks for your donations!!!  They are going to a great cause…already the CF Foundation has helped scientists find life prolonging medications for CF, but WE STILL NEED A CURE!!!

About The Goat Cheese Lady

I am Lindsey. At first I was a city girl. Growing up, the closest thing I had to farm animals were a cat and a cockatiel. In 2009, Herbert (my husband) and I bought our first milk goat and I instantly became an urban farmgirl, attempting to balance city and farm life..before I knew “urban homesteading” was a thing. That’s when we began The Goat Cheese Lady Farm, hence The Goat Cheese Lady blog you’re visiting now. After moving to the country in 2014, I embarked on life as a rural farmgirl. We continued teaching farm and cheesemaking classes, raising more goats and began construction on our cheese creamery. But life had other plans and in 2017, we decided that, due to financial and health issues, we had to close the farm for business. No more classes, no more creamery, a lot less milking. We went back to off farm jobs, I as an Occupational Therapist, Herbert in construction with his business, D&A Home Remodeling. At that point, I made a silent promise to myself that I would corral my entrepreneurial mind and focus on a job for a year. Well, it has been a year and I am back. Not to classes, cheese, soap or lotion, but back to writing. I love it. I’m not sure where it will lead me, but that’s where I’m starting. I’ll continue to write as The Goat Cheese Lady for now, and whatever the future holds, I’ll let you know. Our two boys are 14 and 11 and continue to be louder than my sister and I ever were. We have two dogs, Montaña and Flash, a cat, Jumpy, a flock of chickens and three goats. Yes, we still have Lucy, the goat who helped us start it all and was milked by over 1,000 people. She’s retired but still the boss. Chocolate provides enough milk for our family with some to spare for the dogs. Soccer friends, school friends, coyotes and mice are frequent visitors. There are way too many flies and every so often we see an owl. I’m glad you’re here. Sometimes you’ll laugh out loud, other times you’ll be inspired to appreciate the small things. My hope is that, over your morning cup of coffee or your afternoon work break, you’ll enjoy the antics and inspiration that are my daily life. Lindsey
