Thank you to you all for your generous donations! It's really incredible how many of you wish to help Janis. We can already see how much his everyday life has changed - he has become more open and takes part in the renovation decision making.

Last week we saw a lot of progress in the bathroom. The old bath was taken out and instead Janis will have a walk in shower - much easier for him! The bathroom was waterproofed, and we got some amazing tile donations, which we hope will go up this week. Also all the doors were taken out for makeover - a very kind company offered to step in and do it as a gift for Janis.

In the rest of the flat electrical works still take place as well we have started working on ceilings and walls in the living room.

Have a great week and watch this space :) for frequent updates please follow the progress on Instagram @helpjanis.

We had indeed a very busy yet exciting week. Most of the floors were sanded, and they look fantastic. Once the old paint layer is off you can see beautiful pine floorboards. Janis loves the new look of the flat already! Also we got some nice furniture, tiles and other nice things donated for Janis. People have showed an incredible support and it's been hard to even go through all the comments and messages on Facebook and Instagram. :) Tomorrow we are meeting with a professional builder who agreed to volunteer in evenings to sort out the walls and ceilings. So more action to follow soon. Thank you everyone! :)

We are currently facing an issue with PayPal – they haven’t lifted the PayPal receiving limits (1000 EUR), which means at the moment we cannot receive more money via PayPal. PayPal impose this initial restriction to help prevent fraud, which I guess is a good thing overall. They say it's easy to lift once I supply them with the required information. The frustrating bit is it takes time, but hopefully will get that sorted today. As first time PayPal users we were not aware of this setting. We apologise if this caused any trouble to you. At the moment I will take down the PayPal payment option and only leave the debit/credit card until PayPal fix this.

One the positive note: WE HAVE MET OUR FUNDRAISING TARGET IN 4 DAYS – thanks to you guys!!! This sum was for the basic stuff (plumbing, electrical works, bathroom, touch up for walls, ceilings, floors) in Janis’ apartment. What is even more great people show so much support and we have a feeling we will be able to do more than we initially planned for. So watch this space, share the project and if your heart tells you – keep giving as we have still 25 days to go. And remember you can see the daily project updates on our FB and Instagram accounts @helpjanis.

Have a great day!

It is much easier to share the little steps done daily on FB and Instagram accounts. So please make sure you follow us and thank you again for being so kind and donating. Today I met Jānis and told that we have enough to get the project started. Jānis isn't a talkative man but I could sense that he is extremely grateful. We cannot wait to get started. The real action starts on 27th January.
