Love Drop: May

Hey guys!  The Love Drop team is at it again! Last month they gave over $6,000 worth of cash and goods to their recipient, the Kahlen family, who had been going through a financially hard time due to the economy (and whose daughter is currently battling Tuberous Sclerosis). They focused on their love of spending time together, and brought them over 8 pairs of tickets to a whole bunch of local events. It was awesome, and you can watch how it all went down here.
This month they rally behind the Stalnakers - a family who, along with thousands of others along the gulf coast, are still reeling from the effects of the BP oil spill.  Our goal is to get them a reliable used car this month as their previous two have died, and it's getting harder and harder for them to manage w/ the one they're currently borrowing. They've been giving back to their community since they moved in, and now it's time for US to help them!
Want to help?  Here are three ways you can participate:
  1. Help them get a car! - Our #1 goal is to give them a reliable used car in decent working order. If you have any leads, discounts, or connections in this area, please email Love Drop and let them know.
  2. Give $1.00 - This money will help get them back on their feet, and relieve some financial burden. Every dollar counts!
  3. 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.
Thanks everyone! We'll let you know how it goes!

Blue screens, rainstorms, and worms, oh my!

As the title suggests, my computer isn totally busted. Blue screens, automatic restarts, freezes...its baaaaad. Tyler and I get to come back home for a few weeks, so hopefully some of my genius friends can look at it :) Lucky I found a blogger app, huh? Mobile updates, ftw!

Let's get physical, physical!

I am so unbelievably out of shape. Last summer, I was running every other day and logging about 12 miles a week. Sure, thats chump change for some of you marathon runners, but for me it was pretty impressive. Now, I can't make it through my measly 30 minute workout.

…and not a moment too soon. I was about to go crazy! You can only watch the same episodes of Mickey Mouse Clubhouse on DVD so many times, ya know?

Love Drop: April

Hey guys!  The Love Drop team is at it again!  Last month they gave over $5,000 worth of cash and goods to their recipient, Katie, who had been battling a couple of brain tumors over the years, and it culminated with a surprise gift of 15+ friends showing up at her house to celebrate with her. It was awesome. You can watch how it all went down here.
This month they start all over again and grow support for the Kahlen's - a family who has been hit hard by the economy, and by their daughter's serious medical condition, tuberous sclerosis. In addition to financial assistance, they're planning to unite the artistic community to help support Kent's glassmaking work.
Want to help?  Here are two ways you can participate:
  1. Give $1.00 - This is the best way to help out and join their team at the same time.
  2. Donate a piece of art - They will be hosting an auction this month, and would love to feature your artwork in it. Proceeds go to help the Kahlen's this month, and is a great way to promote your work :)
We'll let you know how it goes!  Thanks everyone.
