Hello my friends! As you may have heard, my parents' house was recently affected by a fire that burned part of my childhood home down as well as created smoke damage throughout the rest of the house. Luckily, everyone is okay, but some very sentimental items were lost in the fire. Unfortunately, not everything can easily be replaced, but there are a few that we can try our best to replace.
One thing that was very sentimental to both of my parents that perished in the fire was an original print of a movie poster for a film called "High Society" with Grace Kelly, Frank Sinatra, and Bring Crosby. This movie is actually the reason my name is Samantha as Bing Crosby sings a song entitled "I love you, Samantha." My dad found an original print of the poster in Canada in the early 90s (before the internet made it easier to find these things) and gave it to my mom as a gift. It took him forever to find it, and it was one of the most sentimental things that my parents owned.
MY PARENTS DO NOT KNOW THIS, BUT I have found an original print of the poster online, and I wish to SURPRISE them with the poster. But, since it is an original print, it is very expensive. So, I am asking for a little help! This is very unlike me to ever ask for help in this way, but this poster meant so much to my family and is part of their story.
If you can, I kindly ask you to consider donating whatever small amount you can to create a NEW STORY - replacing this one sense of loss with the love and support from family and friends from all over. IF YOU KNOW MY PARENTS, PLEASE KEEP THIS A SECRET! I want to surprise them, and they have no idea I am doing this. Thank you so much for reading all this and for all the love and support we have received thus far. Thank you!!
