Love Drop: February 2011

If I could have any job in the world, I'd want to be a happiness fairy. I would want to spend my days making other people happy. I firmly believe it's about the little things. So I'd drop off cupcakes to people having a shitty day, bring home lost dogs and refuse the reward... anything else in my power to make someone else's day a little brighter. My uniform would be a black tutu with stars and a glow in the dark t-shirt. And glitter. There has to be glitter somewhere in this equation.

But I haven't yet found a financial backer for this dream so in the meantime, I signed up for LOVE DROP. Each month two guys pick someone to do something nice for. This month they are raising money to help two boys with autism. I love what they're doing and am so proud to be a part of this project.

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. (It's pretty cool!)
This month we start all over again and circle around 2 beautiful kids with severe autism -- Ethan & Alex. Our goal is to raise $13,000 so we can get them a highly trained service dog. And if possible, two iPads so they can speak again (they can't even say "I love you" to their mom -- these iPads allow them to get their voice back).
Here are 3 ways you can help:
  1. Join the team - This is the best way to help out, and all it takes is $1.00.
  2. 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.
  3. Give a gift or provide a service - Gift cards (iTunes would be great!), two iPads (so we can help the boys speak again!), and anything else you think could help out.
