  • hello again     12 March 2016
    Posted by: Emma Jane Taylor

    Well with a little over 2 weeks to go i thought I would pop in and say hello and thank you. Thank you to those who have supported me in my cause and even though I am a little short of my overly ambitious (if not slightly ridiculous) goal as at today I am $548 closer than not to my goal of being a home owner. I have appreciated the support and donations from people that saw my page for what it is . . . An idea. For my own personal reasons after a few interviews and media interactions i did step away from the hype that my page originally caused and maybe that was to my detriment but netherless I have no regrets except to say once again that if I did cause offense or upset to anyone with my cause I am sorry. My journey with this has ticked along in the background while I continue on my path to home ownership which one day I hope to turn the dream into a reality for myself and my family. So once again thank you so much and good luck with your own dreams xo

  • 10 Days in :)     11 October 2015
    Posted by: Emma Jane Taylor

    Well it has now been 10 days since I started this page and what a ride so far.

    I have been met with so many differing opinions to my page which is fine, everyone has a right to feel how they want about it and I have always acknowledged that the idea and/or the approach is not going to be for everyone.

    On the other hand I have been blown away by the support I have had from family, friends and complete strangers from all over NZ and the world :)

    I would truly like to thank those who have supported me with not only their contribution and incredibly kind words but have seen this page for what it is -

    a crazy little idea. :)

  • The journey has begun      5 October 2015
    Posted by: Emma Jane Taylor

    Thank you so much to all those who are supporting me on this journey not only for your contributions but the many kind messages that I have received. It has been overwhelming and I am so grateful for the interest. I would also like to take the opportunity to reiterate that I am in no way comparing my page with others of genuine need and I consider this to be a social experiment rather than a 'cause' and people are of course more than welcome to their opinion and to choose to not be involved and I am genuinely sorry if I have upset or angered anyone with this idea or the use of GAL but I am not a bad lazy person and I have tried to be as upfront and transparent as I possibly can.

    If I got anywhere near the million (highly unlikely I know) I wouldn't buy myself a million dollar house I would definitely help others into homes of their own too. I am not a greedy person and really the idea is quite ridiculous so why not pick a ridiculous amount?
