Blogging With Purpose


So most of you here probably know I'm the Chief Event Planner for Operation Shower. Operation Shower is a 501(c)3 charity that provides "baby showers in a box" to expectant moms who have spouses deployed in the military.

You also all know what a tragic week it has been for our military and the numerous losses of life we've had this month. So, so sad.

In the midst of worry and sadness, Operation Shower tries to bring joy to military families that are separated at a very special time in their lives. Imagine being pregnant while your husband is overseas defending our country. It's not political. It's human.
So, as we approach Thanksgiving, please take one moment and check out my post on the Operation Shower blog here. I'd be so thankful for it.
I'd also love it if my fellow bloggers could link to the Operation Shower post. Amazing things happen with the power of the internet. I know we can all make a difference. Please, leave me a comment if you post so I can thank you personally.
Have a safe Halloween and a blessed holiday season.
Ever grateful,
P.S. You can also click on our website or this post here for an opportunity to donate.

Thank you all so very, very much. Such a simple thing to spread the word and yet so meaningful to have you take the time to do it.

PBH - I've asked Lena of Operation Shower to send you the button. Let me know if you get it.

Love, love, love -
