Through this crazy space called blogland, I've been privileged to get to know a great lady named Ellyn. She's got quite a story.
She doesn't think she's strong, Ellyn (even after losing her precious Eli, raising funds to allow her deaf fourth-born to hear and surviving a divorce that was just finalized this week), but she's far too strong to ever ask for this kind of help. Well, that's what friends are for, right?! Sarah and Mandy thought up this brilliant Love-A-Thon and we're happy to ask on Ellyn's behalf (and, by the way, she has no idea we are doing this)!
Well ok, she might now.
In order to stay in her home, the only home Seth has ever known, she needs to raise $2,400 by the end of the month. If you don't know her story, and why she is in danger of losing the family home, just click here. But we're warning you: you will fall head-over-heals in love!
To keep this little fundraiser completely legal, you will not be donating money in exchange for raffle tickets. Simply donate (any amount helps), and then comment to tell us you have done so. Mandy is giving away a blog makeover, and Sarah is giving away four (yea!) Jared Anderson CD's. Renee is also giving away some fab prizes on her blog so go check them all out! I will give away a Mary Kay $10 gift certificate to someone who comments after donating on my blog!
If you are interested in the blog makeover (and I know you are!), comment on Mandy's post. If you are interested in some rockin' praise music (and why wouldn't you be?), comment on Sarah's post. If you are interested in Renee's prizes, comment on her blog. If you are interested in my prize, comment on mine. If you're interested in all of them, comment on all of them! :)
Wanna help more?! Of course you do!
If you'd like to place this Chip-in on your blog and possibly offer your own prize to commenters, just let Sarah know. She'll put you on a list so that all Love-a-thon participants will have a chance to enter your giveaway as well!
