How We Gonna Pay RENT?

The Love Drop  team is at it again! Last month they gave over $9,200 worth of cash, goods and services to their recipient, the Stalnaker family, who had been going through a financially hard time due to the effects of the BP oil spill on the Louisiana economy. The family was in need of a car and the Love Drop team was able to surprise them with one, making it one of the most exciting Love Drops ever.  You can watch how it all went down here. 

This month they rally behind the Aubins  - a Michigan mother and her three children who  are mourning the death of Keith, husband and father, after his lengthy battle with multiple health problems.  Our goal is to raise at least $3,600 to pay the family's rent for three months, which will allow them to focus on what they need to during this time, without fear of losing their home. Additionally, since Keith was an organ donor, he leaves a powerful legacy and the Love Drop team hopes to raise awareness of organ donation this month to honor Keith's memory. Help us make this month special for the Aubins!
 Check out the youtube video about the family:

Want to help?  Here are three ways you can participate:
Give $25 towards rent <-- Click this link to contribute $25 towards their rent for the next three months - it will relieve so much stress for them.
Give a gift or service - Gift cards are always helpful. Places like Target, Wal-mart, restaurants, etc would definitely help them out. Services too - especially those you can offer yourselves, or from your company.
Organ donation  - We're giving the Aubin's the gift of knowing that the people on our team are organ donors. If you are one now, or pledge to be soon, please tell us so
, and we'll relay the total number as a gift at the Drop. 
Love Drop is such an amazing organization, helping individual people and families. Please consider joining the team! (We have t-shirts! No, seriously... we have t-shirts now.)
And I thought that would be a great introduction for today's Harry Potter question!
Day 6: What House Would You Want To Be In?
I go back and forth a lot on this one. 
Slytherins are just too evil for me, and I feel as though the Ravenclaws would use big words I don't understand. So those are out.

Couldn't find a good pic that wasn't of Rob
I always thought I would want to be in Gryffindor - just like the power trio and the entire Weasly family, as well as some other amazing characters. They are loyal, trustworthy, and brave. These are all qualities that I really admire and appreciate in people. However, as time as gone on and the more "Which Hogwarts House Are You" quizzes I've taken, it seems as though I would fit into Hufflepuff more. When I think about it, it makes sense.

Many people think that the Hufflepuffs are wimps and all of that - but they really aren't. Hello! Cedric Diggory! (And I really mean CEDRIC and NOT ROBERT PATTINSON.) He was pretty freaking awesome.

According to Harry Potter Wiki: "Students belonging to this house are known to be hard-working, friendly, loyal, and non- judgemental."The Hufflepuff attitude of love and acceptance is one that I try to live out in my life every day. Reaching out to others and giving a helping hand. I like it.

So I feel as though I would be happy and fit into either of those two houses.

Which house would you be in?


  1. Well, I'd WANT to be in Gryffindor, but I'm far too much of a chicken. So I'd probably end up in Hufflepuff too!

    Ravenclaw has always seemed sort of snobby to me. Not quite sure why. Just the same as how Slytherin always seems evil!

  2. I'd want to be in Gryffindor but there's no way... probably Ravenclaw.


Share with me your thoughts! They make me smile.
