As I have been going on my adventure of finding out “who I am.” I’m quickly learning that some parts of me are not as hidden as others. As I mentioned before, Community is something that is very important to me. In order to nurture and grow this part of me, I’ll be devoting 1 post a week towards the topics of Community/Volunteerism.
“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community, and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.” ~ George Bernard Shaw
The first post on this is about Love Drop. I found this group through another blog I follow, and think the idea behind it, and more importantly how, why and what they are doing, is great. Each month, a person/family is chosen based upon the nominations received to the website, and donations of money, goods, and services are collected to help the chosen recipient. I encourage you all to check out Love Drop, giving is easy and goes to help good people.
Below you will find the video of the July introducing the family that Love Drop is focusing on this month. If you have a few minutes take a look, also you can go to the website and view all previous Love Drops.
The Love Drop team is at it again! Last month they gave over $5,000 worth of cash and goods to their recipient, the Aubin family, who was struggling financially after the passing of their dad, and this month they’re ready to do it again and help out another person 🙂 They’ve given out over $45,000 in the past 6 months, and show no signs of stopping. If you know of anyone yourself that could use their help, make sure to let them know.
This month they’re heading down to Atlanta to help Felicity, a little 4-year-old girl who was just diagnosed with brain cancer. Felicity had immediate surgery and is currently undergoing aggressive radiation treatments for the remaining portion of her tumor. We want to raise $5,000 for her family to help cover mounting medical costs, as well as the future expenses a new baby on its way will bring. With your support and generosity, we can really do something special for them!
Here are three ways you can help:
Give $25 towards medical bills Give a gift or service Gift cards are always helpful. Places like Target, Wal-mart, restaurants, etc would definitely help them out. Services too – especially those you can offer yourselves, or from your company.
Join our blogger network – Blog about our Love Drops each month like I am 🙂 It’s easy, it’s rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps our families). Love Drop will give you all the content you need.
Thanks so much guys! Here’s to a great month of paying it forward!
