You are all so wonderful! I have the best bloggy friends in the world and I am so excited to report that for the April Comments for a Cause I received 402 comments on my blog ( I also include any comments made on my Facebook page on those posts) so that means that I will be making a donation of $201.00 to Ada First United Methodist Church for their rebuilding project after the devastating fire that destroyed their building. If you missed the post about it you can read all about it here. I am confident that over the next couple of years they will grow stronger as a faith community as they rebuild.
It always seems like I run across the PERFECT charity right when I need a new one. That is so the case for my May Comments for a Cause recipient. I saw a random post on Facebook by my niece and investigated more and found the perfect place that I want to donate in May.
Operation Shower is about celebrating and honoring military families. Operation Shower is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that provides joyful baby showers for military families to ease the burden of deployment.
Operation Shower is THE perfect charity for me to support this month. As a newlywed I was a Navy wife and was part of a wonderful community of support on the Orlando base that we lived. Those connections are still part of my life today and I hold those friendships very dear. No one can understand what a deployment of a loved one can mean until they have gone through it. I did not but I had many friends whose life was one deployment after another. Add into the mix that many times a pregnancy is incubating while the loved one is deployed and it adds a whole other dimension to the mix. Operation Shower celebrates with the expectant family by providing baby showers with wonderful gifts–currently they are doing group showers at different locations instead of individual showers because of the logistics. For more information please check out their website at Operation Shower.
I will be contributing items from their Amazon wish list for the shower once May is over and am VERY excited to bring a teeny bit of joy to the families of those who are serving our country so well. Please join me and remember that every comment counts !!! Thank you! Teapot Tuesday will return next week as usual!!! Dont’ forget to check out my post here to get in on a Giveaway that I am doing on my blog!!!
