Bring on the Comments!

Today is the beginning of my BlogHer Acts Donation Challenge. I hope you'll all join in, spread the word on your own blogs and send visitors my way. The more comments I get, the more money I'll be donating to the maternal health cause of your choice. Leave a comment every day, and make sure you vote for your favorite BlogHer Acts maternal health cause. Mother's Day is just around the corner, and I'm excited to be able to donate toward a special cause that will help mothers around the world stay healthy and be the best mothers they can possibly be.

On top of the donation you help me raise, I'll also be donating a gift in my mother's name. When I asked Mom what she wanted or needed this Mother's Day she couldn't think of anything, so I asked how she would feel about me giving a donation to a maternal health cause in her name. After describing the options, my loving, giving Mom was more than willing to give up yet another gift card for Borders or some other possession she didn't really need. Thanks, Mom! In addition to the funds I donate based on the number of comments I receive, I'll be giving $25 to the Nepal clinic in the name of the woman who gave my sister and me life. She was blessed with the opportunity to receive proper health care before, during and after her pregnancies, and now, in her name, many other women and children will have that opportunity as well.

Bring on the comments! I can't wait to give others the Mother's Day gift of health.

Cool.

I plan to comment every day. If I remember.

Glad you will be making a donation regardless of comments - I was going to ask you about that.
