tuesday tribute---for tuesday

go blog yourself has been on my reading list for quite sometime...and so i really came to love little tuesday whitt and her whole sweet fam and became involved in praying for them in tuesday's battle with that stinky neuroblastoma. tuesday's parents are totally amazing...they inspire me!

although tuesday went to play with jesus not so long ago, there have been so many people that are changed because of the courage and strength and honesty of the whitt family. on the day of celebration of tuesday's life, a number of folks who couldn't make it out to the funeral, took their kids on a 'wagie ride', which was one of tuesday's fav things. we all posted up our pics...shared our experiences with each other...and hugged our kiddos a little tighter. my kiddos wagie ride is here.

from that precious little tuesday and her honorary wagie ride, a blog spawned...of course...and it is dedicated to nothing more than, in their words, "to keep track of lives touched by angels".

amazing.

so on "for tuesday", you will find all sorts of ways you can make a difference!! you can donate your time, your prayers, your support, your love, some money...you can buy things that people have placed linky's to their stores to donate to the tuesday whitt memorial fund.

anyway, my tribute is to the super fab for tuesday blog...who is showing us angels in every day life...and allowing me {and you} to be part of it!



so here's a little ringer for the week...where you can be a big part of it! i have decided that for every comment i get today, i will donate $1 to neuroblastoma research. so, i will donate a minimum of $50...and since i'm not a millionaire, and hubs is freaked out that 6,345,892 people will comment, i'll cap the donation at $250. so, spread the word and don't cheat and comment 25 times!! go tell some other peeps and get the word out about neurobalstoma and let's make a difference!!

and there's a perfectly sweet little baby named kayleigh freeman who has spent her whole little life in NICU and there's a great little way for you to get some fab stuff and to help the family out too...go on over there too!

Leelou Blogs

and if you want to make a difference...and i know you do, come on over to project{happy hearts} on thursday, march 17th...where you can join in honoring tuesday and cora and ll kinds of angels. head over HERE to read more.




what are you doing? comment? come on!!!

I knew you were doing this in advance, blogged about it and I'm still sitting here crying! You move my heart in the kindest way! I know you'll get TONS of comments, because Angels always get results. :)

Kacey R. said...

Alright, I got side tracked at all of the links you mentioned before I commented. So, I want to make sure I get YOUR $1s worth and leave you some kind of juicy comment. So...I love that we were able to meet in this fabulous place we call blog land. I love that you appreciate people's differences. I love that you are a Do-ER and you are a genuine person. I love that you have a heart bigger than the size of Texas and you like to help others and try to change the world one little step at a time. Afterall, a small step is better than no step at all. It's people like you, who donate and organize that will help find a cure for cancer. And it's people like YOU offering comfort and support to those who are dealing with it and trying to support others efforts, who really make a difference.

Yep, I think that was worth YOUR $1.00. :D I hope you get cleaned out sista!

Megan said...
