I am amazed and overwhelmed by the response that Laura has received since launching her blog less than twenty-four hours ago. Today, Twenty Five Days to Make a Difference was listed as one of the fastest growing blogs on WordPress! Almost 1,000 readers have stopped by to find out what this project is all about….and we are very excited to see how far-reaching Laura’s call for good will and charitable deeds might be.
I’m off to help Laura clean out our garage, return our bottles, and donate the money to The Salvation Army….today’s effort to make a small difference. This act was inspired by our fabulous friends, the Toney family, who we will be writing much more about later. This summer Laura’s friend, Andrew Toney, served as a tremendous role model for her when he won a fundraising contest for our local Tourette’s Syndrome foundation. All of the money was raised by returning bottles all summer long! So thank you to Andrew and his mom for inspiring us today. Laura will be back later to share her daily post and to tell some of your stories as well.
We used to look forward to cards during the holidays…and we still do. But your email messages have been filled with amazing acts of kindness, generosity, and well-wishes. Thank you for making the start of our holiday season so bright!
