We've had opportunities to talk about foster care and what it means and while I'm not sure every family is meant to take direct part in the system, I think we all feel a tug and a desire to help these kids somehow. May I show you just such a way?
In my interneting, I've linked from blog to blog and made a new friend in Joy, at Small Town Joy. She is just that. A joy. And she and her family are working really hard to make sure their daughter, who came to them through foster care, gets all nestled in with her forever family, snug as a bug. It is the road less traveled, that's for sure, and turns out it's an expensive one, too. So her friends are pitching in with a fundraiser. It's a good way for us to store up treasures, I think, and I can tell you that 100% of the proceeds go directly to placing a darling little girl right where she belongs.
They were all hoping for each of us to donate $1, but I'm thinking a few more couldn't hurt. There is also an awesome giveaway if you'll share this opportunity. Unfortunately I'm a little late in posting, so it ends this Sunday night, but I think we can all agree this is a win either way. You can read more about Joy's story here and click to donate on the paypal link on the right side of her blog. And you can read more about the giveaway here. The rules seem pretty easy, you share; you might win. Actually, though, you share; we all win. Especially Joy, Pie, and company.
I know I've been a blog slacker here. And I've got a lot of catching up to do! We're only 12 days into this year, and I've already got a lot of reviewing to do. I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend and I can't wait to hear Joy's great news!
