End of a Era of Love


For the past year I have have the privilege of being part of an organization called Love Drop.

Once a month they pick out a person or family who is going through a rough patch and drop love on them. It can be in the form of a huge check to help them pay bills, an all expenses paid vacation, service dogs, a car, gifts, cards, hugs - the sky is the limit for this group.

Every month I dedicate a post to Love Drop to help spread the word and share love with people who need it. 

This month is the FINAL LOVE DROP.


When I got the email - I wanted to cry (although considering the week I was having - I'm pretty sure ANYTHING would have made me cry). I have FALLEN IN LOVE with this community the past 12 months. A lot of the people I've chatted with on the forums and via Twitter and Facebook and their blogs have become my friends. 

But you know what... J$ and Nate (the founders of Love Drop) deserve a break. These two guys work so hard to share love with the people around them and people around the country they have never even met before. I'm so glad that they are getting the rest they deserve. I also know they have some new ideas up their sleeves and I can't wait to hear all about them! 

So let's end this year the way we started... WITH LOVE. 

Help give a Love Drop this season!
This Christmas the team's coming together for Diomi and her son Nallee, who are going into the cold Milwaukee winter with very little food, clothes, and other necessities. Diomi has been through so much, including the loss of her father, the loss of her job, and clinical depression. But even through the pain you can see all the love she has for Nallee, who has one of the most beautiful personalities you'll find. :)
We want to make this month special for them! We're working with their pastor to help get things they really need, including school uniforms for Nallee, interview clothes for Diomi as she looks for a job, and food to help them through the winter months.
If you can find it in your hearts to give one extra gift this year, whether it be money or a helpful item they can use, please send it in - our goal is to reach $3,000 worth of necessities.
Want to join us in helping Diomi and Nallee? Here are 3 ways:
  1. Give $1.00 - This money will be put towards basic necessities and care.  Maybe even a Christmas present or two (They're currently spending it alone, w/out anything at all).
  2. Give a gift card - Gift cards are extremely helpful, especially to places that are national.
  3. Donate personal products -These two need anything you can thing of in the personal product department: bathroom/kitchen/bedroom stuff, etc.
Thanks guys! You can reach the Love Drop team anytime over at: team (at) love drop (dot) us, or by checking them out at LoveDrop.us. Thanks everyone! We'll let you know how it goes!
