Jen and Michelle, the directors of Ampersand Families
Wheeee! Time to celebrate my 1,000th blog post!!!
I have been puzzling over how to celebrate my 1,000th post. I decided to continue my tradition of rustling up support for one of my favorite non-profits: Ampersand Families.
Ampersand Families finds permanent families for teens in foster care. They are compassionate and dedicated. I am extremely impressed with them and their work.
Since I'm not going to adopt a teen (went through that decision-making process with husband and realized we need to find other ways to support Ampersand)... I try to do what I can to help them out.
Last fall I created a fund-raising page for Ampersand, and to my amazement I have almost fulfilled my goal of raising $500 for them. If you feel so moved, would you like to go to my page and help me reach my goal, or even exceed it? Even a dollar would help. If each of my 89 followers could donate a dollar... that would rock! Just click on this link:
Ampersand Families - compassion in action!
If you can't donate (which I realize may be asking a lot), I will donate some money to Ampersand for each comment that is left here. Please comment! If I can, I'll give Ampersand a dollar per comment. That may have to change, depending on how many comments I get. But I'll aim for a dollar.
Can you help Ampersand continue doing their wonderful work? How many comments can I get???
