remember at the end of december when i posted a plea for positive thoughts and prayers from fellow blogger brandy for her "hot awesome dude"?
if not, let me refresh your memory.
well we (the 20SB blogging community), felt terrible. just horrible. and oh so helpless... i mean, if only there was something we could DO for them to help the situation.
but then, lilu snapped us back into reality by reminding us, "ummmmmm, did you forget that WE ARE THE INTERNET?!??!? so yes we can!"
the result was the following:
brandy and your hot awesome dude, this one's for you.
talk about a 20SB all star cast - this video makes me so warm and fuzzy i can't even handle it!
[ i'm singing (if you can call it that), at the 00:13 second mark, btw. ]
now while getting getting A TON of bloggers from ALL OVER THE COUNTRY to sing pieces of a song may have been a challenge in and of itself, we aren't done just yet.
our friend brandy is a brilliant writer, a wonderful teacher, and a generous friend. and she just so happens to have fallen in love with a man who has just been diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma.
so we are raising money for The Multiple Myeloma research fund in his name. for the price of a cinnamon dolce latte, half-caf, hold the whip, you can be a prt of an effort to cure a disease that affects approximately 750,000 people worldwide.
every dollar brings us a dollar closer to a cure. and every donation brings a sliver of hope to a girl who needs all the hope she can get.
it's time to love harder.
what you can do:
- visit www.loveharder.org and GIVE.
- pass it on. forward this story to five people, share this blog post, become our fan on facebook.
- simply love harder. life is short, love is unbending, and no one knows what could happen tomorrow, so tell someone you love them today.
for more information on The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and where your donation will go, check out their website.
and if you are so kind to make a contribution, visit brandy's hot awesome dude's love harder donation page.
thanks in advance.
