Yesterday, we all undoubtedly spent time slack-jawed in front of the computer or television, watching the horrific aftermath of the Haiti earthquake. (Related: if anyone in the Burgh can help out these amazing women and the kids at their orphanage, PLEASE DO. The babies need to get home.) I often find myself at a loss with what to do during catastrophic events. I’m just a mom, a wife, living my life here, thousands of miles away, how on earth can I even HELP?
I can donate money. But… how much? No amount seems enough. $20? $100? $200?
So, this year for De-lurking Day, I’m going to do something a little different. YOU, my dear readers, will determine how much I will donate. I’m taking a tip from AndreAnna and I pledge to give $1 for every de-lurking comment I receive on this post to the Red Cross (with a minimum of $25, in case nobody plays along. heh)
So! Leave me a note saying hello! Or telling me what you had for breakfast. Or whatever. Just comment, baby.
