As a result of my last post on Blogging that gives hope I’m feeling moved to do something for Cary and Lori who continue to struggle through Lori’s cancer. Cary actually posted yesterday that he and Lori and heading away for a couple of days break after what seems to have been a really tough time of treatment which has left Lori feeling pretty emotionally empty.
Lori’s blog really got to me as I read it through again today – her story and the photos she posts are beyond any words I have to describe and I find myself at the point of tears today as I think about this young couple who I’ve never met who have become a part of my lives.
I’d like us to do something for Cary and Lori – something practical if we can.
Lori has written of the financial pressure that cancer has put upon her and Cary and there has made a way available for readers to help out via donating through Amazon on her blog (the link is at the top of the right sidebar) or on Cary’s blog via PayPal (the button is at the bottom of his left sidebar). Can I ask you to join me in making a donation? If you’d like to do it anonymously I’m happy for you to put something in my PayPal account for me to pass on (my paypal email is [email protected]) – just mark it ‘for Cary and Lori’.
Many ProBlogger readers have asked if they can make a donation to me for the tips I’ve been writing here over the past months – I’ve always said no – what I do here is free – but if you were one of them can I ask you make a donation instead. I’d like the ProBlogger community to be a generous one. We talk about accumulating money – in my opinion with the capacity to earn money comes responsibility in the way we spend it. We can do so in selfish ways or sacrificial ways – I’d like readers of this blog to be known for the later of these options. Let’s make a difference friends.
