I posted this update on social media this morning and since then there have been $400 in contributions in support of this request! Thank you to everyone who has contributed so far! That means this loan is just $1,974.65 away from being paid off!
Here’s what I posted earlier:
Hey all! We (Lead Safe Mama, LLC) got two loans to help cover the cost of the refurbishments to the XRF instruments that make it possible for us to do the consumer goods testing that we do. This is what is left of one of them as of this moment (12/31/22). The other one is more significant (it has a balance of about $12,000 right now). I would love to try to get this smaller one paid off by the end of the year. If anyone has anything they can contribute towards this that would be amazing. If you appreciate the consumer goods testing and reporting that we do (and if you appreciate that this information is freely available to the public and not behind a paywall) this would be a great time to show your support.
We are an LLC (Lead Safe Mama, LLC) not a nonprofit – so contributions are not tax-deductible, just think of this as something like an optional Patreon-like contribution to support a woman-owned small business with a unique community-collaborative business model (YOUR comments and input influence 100% of what we test and write about here at Lead Safe Mama, LLC!) Link with details of all the ways you can support this work is here, but I will also put the image with the ways to send financial support in the comments (image is below). Thank you! https://tamararubin.com/2021/07/ways-to-support-the-work-of-lead-safe-mama-llc/
