I saw this posted over at Snerkology, a blog I’ve been reading for some time now.
Tiffany’s friend posted asking for help for a co-worker who lost everything.
“To all my friends, coworkers, and fellow M-TEC graduates: QMedET folks, you’ll be getting an email too, but please pass the word to everyone you know that might be willing to help. We have an MT, a member of our very special team of phenomenal people, who is in dire need. She and her children have basically lost everything and are starting over, and there is a child who has multiple medical problems that will require a lifetime of very expensive specialists and medical care.
I know that so many are striving hard to make their own ends meet, but the power of the internet is that we have the power to reach so many folks who care, which can make $2 turn into $200 overnight. They are literally down to the clothes on their back and a vehicle. School is starting, birthdays are coming, children deserve a normal life with books, games, and toys; these children’s mother had to spend part of her last $50 on underwear and toothbrushes.
Please understand that this is a special outreach and not an obligation; no one will be thought of badly if they cannot contribute. Even a reposting on Facebook, a blog, Twitter, MySpace, e-mail, etc., is a contribution. Please consider a small gift to this very worthy and special family. Thank you!”

I’ve faced my share of disasters. At one point or another I’ve lost everything at least once. Been there, done that and I remember the fear, the stress and the exhaustion from it. If it wasn’t for the kindness of strangers, I’m not sure where I’d be right now or what my life would be like.
Every little bit helps. Please help if you can and may you reap the rewards of good karma!
