Suzanne is a friend of mine in the blogosphere. She and I have been blog buddies for a few years; I feel like I know her (ok, just a little. not in a creepy way).
She posted today, and emailed me directly, about a close friend who recently lost both of her babies soon after birth. The family is struggling, and Suzanne is hosting a fundraiser to help cover their hospital bills, lost income, and costs back at home. While a small donation certainly won't heal their emotional wounds, it might help ease the financial strain that they are facing.
Suzanne has written a beautiful post, which includes photos and a message from her friend (the mother), and more information about the family and how you can help. I encourage you to check it if you have a moment. She has also gotten several great companies to sponsor the fundraiser, and she is offering entries to win a ton of cool prizes if you donate and help spread the word.
It's not often that I use this space to ask for help on behalf of myself or a friend, but I felt compelled to share. I can't even imagine what they must be going through, but I want to help however I can. I've made a donation to the Love to Zaria fundraiser, and I've added a badge to my sidebar to make it easy to donate if you feel so moved.
Thanks for listening.
