Friends show up for friends all the time, because as a friend that’s what you’re supposed to do when your friend needs you. It’s comes with the territory and as President Obama said: It’s law. And even though Claudia and Lydia are yet to meet in person, after nine years of being pen pals, they are most definitely friends.
The strong bond the two share is among other ways illustrated with the crowdfunding campaign Claudia started on Friendfund on Lydia’s behalf. See, in her letters to Claudia, Lydia often wrote how she would like to one day own a farm. Because she always struggled financially, she couldn’t raise enough money to buy a patch of land and go after this dream on her own. She did however manage to afford three goats through the years.
Claudia recently came to Friendfund in the hopes of expediting the process of her friend getting her wish come true. “The three goats are a good start and she takes such good care of them! I know she really wants this,” said Claudia, “And I will help her with the rest.” The German student is optimistic because a number of strangers have already contributed towards the little farm. But more money is needed.
Claudia is not too worried, though. “One day soon, I will visit Lydia on her farm. Of this I am positively sure,” she told us.
