Making an Important Goal...and a GIVEAWAY!!!!


Today, I was catching up on some
blog reading since it's been a lazy day for me ...
Yay!
and  I came across one of my favorite blogs 
and realized she crossed a MAJOR mild stone yesterday...
well, almost.

She doesn't know I am writing this...yet...

When I saw how close she was, I just couldn't help but think, 
WE - her online community 
COULD MAYBE HELP HER REACH IT!

***NOTE*** 
as of 7:49 p.m. CST Sunday evening
Linda not only reached her goal,
but you all helped her go over her goal...
But if you are just reading this and willing,
Please join us...


You see, Linda
and who is also the moderator of 
and
was diagnosed with ALS in 2001...
She doesn't write about it...but I knew about it...
and so when I saw her little button for the ALS Walk
when I was reading her blog today,
I clicked on it to sponsor her 
and read that it was 
YESTERDAY! 

Continuing to read down the page 
I noticed that her goal this year was $3500
and she was currently at $3320.

Sew...here's my idea...
Since the website is still
taking donations...
What do you say, we HELP her 
MAKE HER GOAL...

Visit her page HERE ~

If you donate, put your blog as the sponsor,
come back and leave me a comment - 
tell me you donated and the blog name
you put your donation under...
and I will put your name in the hat for 
a $50 gift certificate to  

I will draw on Friday, October 7th!!!

This is a WIN -WIN for all of us!!!

With Hugs on a Sunday...
Love,
Lana

  9. I just donated for her as well. Helped her reach the 5,000.00 goal on the Linda's Defeeters page! I have a friend who was struck with this disease over a year ago so this is close to home and I wish I could have donated even more.

    My blog is PigTalesandQuilts.com
