The Love Drop- Give a few

I wanted to give you an update on my Love Drop Post. What happened to Jill and her family? Last month the Love Drop Team raised over $2,500 and boxes after boxes of goods and items to help Jill and her family get through a hard time in their lives (homelessness & financial worries). We did this in 1 month. All 400+ people came together and gave a few bucks each to impact one family's life. If you participated in this, THANK YOU. The final presentation can be seen here.

Boost Coupons to help Cancer Patients

I love helping people. I think coupons are something anyone can help collect. The coupon for Boast can actually help people with cancer. I appreciate that Lara at A Frugal Chick shared this with me. This is an unbelievably cool chance to use coupons to help some cancer patients! I just went online and did some research and there are several posting boards talking about the benefits of drinking Boost while going through chemotherapy.  Because of the extreme weight loss often experienced, … [Read more...]

30-Day Giving Challenge Week #2

It is the start of week 2 for the 30-Day Giving Challenge. How are you all doing? Have you come up with a creative way to give? I told you last week how time is my biggest challenge. I made an effort every day last week to give a little extra time. I took a few minutes out of each day to give special attention to someone who needed- whether that be my husband, my children, my extended family, a friend or a complete stranger. It may not seem like much, but as Amee stated, it is all about the … [Read more...]

It is November 1st and that means that it is the first day of the 30 Day Giving Challenge. The idea is to give in some way each day throughout the month of November. I have been thinking about this challenge all day. I am excited to see how making a conscious effort to give will impact me and those around me. I was talking with a man today who just arrived home from a 3 week mission trip to Haiti.  It was a huge eye opener for him and made him so thankful for the simplest things. I know that … [Read more...]

What is for Dinner Wednesday? Help Stamp Out Hunger

Zemanta Related Posts Thumbnail

Well, this week I will not be cooking dinner. They do not allow hospital patients to cook their own dinner. It got me thinking about food and dinner and I decided instead to ask you all to help others fix their own dinner. The post office runs a food donation drive which occurs on May 8th. I was hoping everyone could donate a can or two for people who are struggling to make ends meet. I feel very fortunate to be able to provide meals for my family. I also feel fortunate that by using our site I … [Read more...]
