The Great Fundraising Act

Today is an awesome day.  Janetha of Meals and Moves Blog took the plunge to help another blogger who was recently diagnosed with cancer with her $5,000 per month out of pocket medical costs.  She created a live auction on her blog and asked several other bloggers and companies to help provide items to auction off.  There are hundreds of items, anywhere from services to baked goods and fitness stuff to books and travel/entertainment!  I was of course most interested in the baked goods.  They have tons of healthy and unhealthy stuff to choose from and it’s obviously going to a great cause.

Here are several good posts that Susan has written in her journey thus far.

It’s so incredible when people get together and tackle something this big!  At 12 pm EST, they were at the $12,000 mark.  I think this proves how powerful individuals can be when they set their sights on something.  I’m so happy to watch such an amazing thing help someone so much!

Healthcare will forever be a debate in all countries, not just ours.  I know that a lot of people wish they were on the Canandian healthcare system, but we see in situations like this one, the grass may just look greener on the other side.  They still have private insurance to ensure all healthcare is paid for.  This was very eye-opening to me that there isn’t a one-size-fits all answer to this debate.  Sure, there are great things about the Canandian healthcare system, but there are also downfalls. In Susan’s case, there is a lot of debate in her providence about how her medications are costing her $5,000 out of pocket per month until she is off chemotherapy and has beat cancer!  That’s very expensive and the drugs are a necessity to save her life.

Please go to the auction and bid your little heart out to help Susan!!

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this website. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appearance. I must say that you’ve done a very good job with this. …

  6. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to
    see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is
    now broken and she has 83 views. I know this
    is entirely off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
