Obviously, there are a thousand reasons I love blogging: here, here, and here to name a few, but one of the greatest things about blogging is that you have the opportunity to see so much good in people. We are in this community where most of us have never actually met, but we connect. I wanted to share with you three opportunities where you can help other people.
Brooke @ Smiling Running Shoes recently contacted me about her grandfather who is going through a difficult time. You can read his story here. I agreed to send her grandfather a letter of encouragement as he makes his way through these difficult times. All she wants to do is cheer him up and give him something to smile about – Who doesn’t love unexpected letters in the mail?! If you’re interested in sending her grandfather a little note of encouragement and love, please e-mail Brooke @ firstname.lastname@example.org and she will provide you with the mailing address for your letter!
Samantha @ Hooah & Hiccups recently wrote about a dear friend who had a family friend that was recently in a motorcycle accident. She spoke about all the ways bloggers can help here. At the moment, I’m not financially able to give to help with medical bills and expenses, but I agreed to send him a letter of encouragement as well and if you have some time, I encourage you to do the same! Nick was in a motorcycle accident a few years back and it was one of the scariest things to get a call about.
A new blog exchange! As I was typing up this post, I came up with this fabulous idea for bloggers to help bloggers! I’ll post all the details and sign up information for it tomorrow, so be sure to check back! This will be a great opportunity for you to get to know new bloggers and find ways to encourage them and uplift them!
