Day #31: Thank you
Seriously, you guys!? You rock!
If you missed my post yesterday, you should go check it out, so I don’t sound like a complete moron……
Shuddup….I can hear you laughing….. ;)
I first heard about this through Carrie’s Facebook event, Fellow Humans In Need: WE CAN HELP!
Turns out, Cher and I are editing the same book?! Full circle, yo.
The online writing community is a close-knit group. Obviously. And I am so proud to report that as of this morning, $739.00 has been donated to help this family in need. Wow.
They need a minimum of $1000.00 by May 1st, in order to keep their home, and I think we are going to get there?! :)
I am still reeling from the out-pouring of support for this fellow writer and her husband.
Sometimes, I forget that there really are good people out there. I think in this internet age, we’ve all become a bit detatched from actual human contact, but this small occurance has restored my faith in humanity. Ten-fold.
Writers from everywhere came out to show their support with blog posts, Facebook shares, and Twitter retweets. And it’s easy to do. Just a few clicks of the mouse, if you’re really lazy. It is the weekend and all….
Seriously though, this shit actually brought tears to my eyes. I love you all.
No, I’m not drunk…. ;)
And on that note, I now have some sappy, 80’s, Lionel Ritchie-esque song stuck in my head.
Happy Saturday, y’all!
It’s GORGEOUS here in the Pacific NW, so I’m going to get dressed and enjoy this beautiful day! :)
