Greetings from Norway :) How are you doing?

Welcome to Crowdrise, here is my July vote for you.

I was wondering if you would like to join my fundraiser for The Trevor Project : http://www.crowdrise.com/fundraiserelise/fundraiser/elisemariemyrvangeik this fundraiser was my very first fundraiser on Crowdrise and it means alot to me personally. There are so many teenagers that are struggeling daily with being discriminated for who they are, just because of who they love. This is not right and we need to show the world that equal rights counts for all no matter who we are or what we do in life. No one has the right to judge others. The Trevor Project is the only helpline through telephone for gay teens in all of USA!! and so therefore this is a very important organisasation to support. You can take a look at Trevor Project's homesite here: http://www.thetrevorproject.org/

Daniel Radcliffe (also known as the main role in Harry Potter) is one of the main spokesperson for The Trevor Project, here you can read more about what he has to say about this very important organisasation for teens all over USA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iMaVp_kQDqU

Please become a teammember and help donate to my fundraiser so that more teens can become proud of who they are, and let us raise awareness together.

Stuff About Me:

I am a different person than I was 3 1/2 years ago.  Different ..... and yet the same.  When Jim died of an aortic dissection on December 18, 2007, a large part of me died, too.  I feel like I have been to hell and back in those years.  And I have survived.

I am starting to find pieces of the "before Janine" and am able to pick them up, dust them off and place them back within me.  They aren't the same, but they're here nonetheless.  My life is mostly good now, like the average person's.  I am happy.  I have fun.  I am funny, sometimes hilarious .... sometimes less so than I think.  :)

I love to make people laugh .... always have.  But now, more than anything, I love to connect with other widowed people .... to let them know that they are not crazy, they are not wrong in how they grieve, they are not worthless now.  But most importantly, they are NOT alone.  There are more of us here than you think.  And you wouldn't recognize most of us, because we don't look the stereotypical "widow".  Yes, we cry, but we also laugh.  Long and hard.  And we know, better than most, that life is short, love is important and support is critical.  

Yes, I am different now.  But these differences make me a better person than I was before.  And you know what?  I think Jim approves.  Very, very much.  :)

 

Please help me to honor Jim's memory by supporting widows & widowers who don't have the wonderful support I've experienced over the past 3 1/2 years. Jim was a wonderful man, in all aspects and he'd be the first person to send in a donation. So please, if you knew him, if you know me ... take a moment and help us help others in this "club no one wants to join". And thank you!!
