The Value of a Dollar

Alright, guys. This is something I have never asked…but desperate times and all…

I told you all about Maddie and how her family had been raising money for March of Dimes for the walk and then the little angel unexpectedly went to be with the Lord. I can honestly say that words cannot express the grief I have experienced for a child I never knew or the family I never met.

But I jumped on the Maddie bandwagon in hopes of easing some grief…for all of us. Well, the lovely internets stepped up and donated a ton of money in memory of this precious child with an infectious smile. And it was awesome.

Now the family is faced with the real-life world of not only coping with this loss, but burying their baby. I can personally attest to the cost of burying a loved one and if you haven’t, well, let’s just say it ain’t cheap.

So here’s the deal, I’m asking you lovely readers to donate a dollar. Seriously. That’s 1/5 of your Starbuck’s coffee…I know because I am a recovering addict. Heh.

But seriously. A buck. You could find that under the seat of your car. Just click the link, send a buck via the safe paypal site and then take a moment to realize how damn fortunate we are that we aren’t spending our Easter holiday in this manner…



Thank you.
