The Blogfia knocked over a delivery truck! Free laptop to a winner!!!

Remember the other day when I launched shoved down your throat my Blogfia button? 






Many of you are displaying it on your blogs since I threatened to whack you if you didn't out of your show of support. Well guys, I have your first job. 


A friend of mine (fellow blogger) is sad. Really sad. Her family is going through a hard time. 




As a therapist, I often encouraged people who were depressed, dealing with self esteem issues or struggling with other things (like perhaps narcissism) to focus on doing something to help others. If you do it enough, it can truly change how you feel about the world and yourself.


So here I am providing you an EASY, PEASY way to get that feel good feeling. And in the meantime, you can help relieve the pressure felt by a family in need. It's simple. If everyone who reads this post would give $5, it would make a huge difference. When my nephew was sick and we had to travel 4 hours away and pay for a hotel, it got really expensive....and not covered by insurance....another burden on top of dealing with his illness.




THE PART ABOUT THE LAPTOP


So please....if you can....give $5....or more if you feel so led.  You will also be given a chance to win a laptop! (Details in the link to Stephanie's story.) In the comment section, let her know that you are a member of the Blogfia.


If you feel so led, show your support on your blog. 


Grab the Blogfia button and write a post (or copy mine) to link up Stephanie's post. You can get the code for the Chip In for your blog as well.


You never know when you might need the help getting the word out about something that is near and dear to you....

Omerta!

Oh wait...wrong code...that's the code of silence....

This is really generous of you Princess. Do you mind if I copy (because I'm short on time) and link back?

I really do love the button. Yesterday when Zgirl posted it, I told her I needed to meet you at the docks to discuss some 'things'...so...what do ya say...(consider this the docks) do you mind?

At first I thought I was going to have to whip up a batch of concrete to make some boots. I will put a post, but I'm not sure when. This I promise you!

You're amazing!

Also, I gave a lot of my time to AFED and it DOES change things =)))))
