$3,779.02

That’s how much is in the Love to Zaria fund right now.

I burst into tears when I opened the PayPal account for a quick peek this morning. I just can’t get over the kindness and love and generosity flowing to Hope and her family.

From friends, family, neighbors, old classmates. From mothers, fathers, grandparents and families who have experienced similar grief. From perfect strangers.

THANK YOU. I simply can’t express enough how grateful I am.

The fundraiser also has some lovely new sponsors. Check them out:

kindness feels pretty necklace

"Kindness Feels Pretty" necklace // ssd jewelry

gold leaf crosses and heart

Gold and silver leaf crosses and heart // Kaye Lambert Sculpture

angel baby bath and body products

Angel Baby bath and body products // Earth Mama Angel Baby

beaded bracelet

$25 gift certificate // It's a Blessing

I’m not finished yet, you guys. This giveaway is live for three whole weeks. And I’m pumped.

Let’s go for $5,000.

Can you imagine how much that would help this family? Especially as they face the daunting move back East, the search for a new home, the adjustment to a new “normal.”

Thank you. For donating, blogging, emailing, tweeting, posting to Facebook, calling, texting, clicking the little “like” button at the bottom of these posts.

THANK YOU.

Let’s keep going!

Love to Zaria
