I get very excited about this time every month and you know why!!! It is time to tally up the comments on my blog for the past month and reveal how much money will be going to the “cause” of the month!!! The month of April was designated to Megan Emerson for support of her work this summer at Carolina Cross Connection. You can read all about it by clicking here.
I am thrilled to report that a donation of $205 will be made immediately to help fund Megan’s work this summer in North Carolina. I am thrilled to be able to tell folks about her and about the great work that CCC does all year long. Don’t forget to check out their website to get a little bit more info.
It is also time to reveal the new cause for the month of May. I have a list of several that will be included over the next few months but in light of all that has happened in our country during the last few weeks my thoughts and prayers have so often turned to those affected by the Boston Marathon explosions. I have researched and there are many different places that money can be donated—to individuals, to families of those who were killed, for medical bills, for loss of employment costs, the list goes on. There are so many places to donate and all seem so important but it is important to me to be able to give to a legitimate fund . The One Fund Boston has been created to serve all of the families of the tragic bombing of April 15, 2013. I have faith that this fund will be administered with the best interest of all those recipients AND donors in mind and so this month our “Comments for a Cause” will go to The One Fund Boston to help with the needs of the victims and family members. It won’t be easy but the administrator has stated that he will do it as quickly and effectively as possible in this article .
This will be the 25th month that we have done Comments for a Cause on It’s Just Life. We have, together, supported 24 different causes—all worthy and all deserving. It is my hope and prayer that I am able to raise some awareness and form some relationships through highlighting different causes. I could not do it without you–my faithful commenters—who never cease to amaze me with your insight and your kindness!!!! Thank you!
