Love drop is an amazing organization. They choose an incredible family in need each month and raise money/services to help.
I met Katie about two and 1/2 years ago through blogging and found that she lived here in DFW. She and I met several times at local Chick-fil-A’s with our children so that we could chat and the kids could play. She was one of the first contributors to She is Dallas (which was Burb Mom at the time).
Things in her life got difficult.
That is an understatement.
She developed a pituitary tumor, a second pituitary tumor and hydrocephalus. Her medical bills mounted. All the while she has tried to keep things “normal” for the sake of her two young children.
But no matter how difficult things have gotten, Katie has maintained an optimistic attitude.
I suspect she has no idea what a blessing she is to the people who know her. She is one of those people who gives without reservation and is genuinely surprised when it is noticed. Those people are rare.
Here is a little bit of Katie’s story as told by her:
There are several ways you can help Katie this month:
- Donate a dollar or two – Love Drop is raising money to help Katie combat her high medical bills. You can make a one time donation specifically to help Katie, or you can sign up to participate in Love Drop on a monthly basis like I have. You can get involved for as little as $1 a month.
- Join Love Drop’s blogger network – By posting monthly about a Love Drop project, you can help spread the love through your social media network. Each story you tell will help reach people who care.
- Donate a gift/service – Love Drop accepts gift cards and donations of services. If you are in the Dallas area and want my help with your donation of services to Katie, please email me (junecleaver at tx.rr.com) and I would be glad to help you plan and connect.
Please consider helping.
If you have any questions or need any suggestions on how, please contact me.
