If you are an avid blog reader, you have probably come across the inspirational and heart-wrenching story of Tuesday. Tuesday’s story can be found on her family’s website, Go Blog Yourself.
To show support, love and just try to help in some small way bloggers across the world have united to spread the word about this event. One of the organizers is Flower Mound blogger and ‘burb mom, Em who writes Life, Liberty and the Pursuit. Here is the information from her Tuesday post:
I didn’t have to wander far this weekend to stumble upon post after post mentioning the pain, the anger, the sadness felt over the loss of Tuesday Whitt.
It constantly amazes me the power of this crazy blogosphere. How one sentiment can spread like wildfire. So when Lee, at Moms without Blogs, sent me a note with an idea utilizing these connections in order to offer the Whitt Family support, I honestly got goosebumps.
On Saturday, February 7th at 11:00 a.m., the Whitt Family is holding a celebration in Parker, Colorado. They’re having a wagon and bike parade to honor Tuesday with one of her favorite things to do – “wagie rides.”
We all can’t be there physically, but we can be there in spirit.
Grab it. Post it. Spread it.
And on Saturday, have a little wagon ride yourself. No wagon – go for a bike ride. Too much rain – jump in a puddle. Too much snow – pull a sled. Heck, throw the pooches in the back of a pickup and take a slow drive.
The goal is to create a virtual parade for Tuesday, to show her family and friends how her brief life touched so many. To offer support in their time of need. And to maybe bring a smile.
We hope we did not over step our bounds in this effort. It is heartfelt, and it is pure. We both felt the need to do something, anything to help these hurting hearts.
We hope this does in one small way.
Now grab that button and spread the word!
