Perhaps you could help too?

Today I’m writing about two very important blogs created by a blogging friend, Dirty Butter. We met up because of the chat box on ExposeYourBlog!. We discovered that we have a lot in common, though we live across the world from each other. We sell old stuff online (DB antiques and collectables – me vintage postcards) and we both used to teach.

Can you help? Every parent knows the agony of their child losing his/her favourite soft toy. Here is an amazing blog to put searchers and toys together. Anyone can help, anywhere in the world… spread a little happiness!

A second idea from DB: As everyone knows in April and May this year a lot of people in parts of the U.S. lost everything because of the tornados. In April and May a lot of young couples are busy preparing for their weddings. Imagine losing the wedding dress you’d dreamt of and saved up for. A special site created to help would be brides have their wedding after all. There have been many generous donations of dresses. Now the problem is to find the brides to fit them. If you know anyone who lost their dress or needs help with preparations because of the tornados, please tell them about this site.

As if there wasn't enough to do already, DB also has a couple of other blogs, Yesterday’s Memories and Day to Day with a Movement Disorder in which she talks about coping with Essential Myoclonus and some of the medication she has to take

Don: very true. I don't know how she fits it all in, sometimes reading about all of her doings leaves me exhausted!

Those tornados were awful. I never had a wedding dress. I just went to the court house and got married in a skirt and blouse and jacket. I just went with my husband and didn't invite anybody. Today they have drive up weddings in Las Vegas. I would do that if I had to get married again. I had a friend that did that.

Thanks for the great endorsement of our efforts, Anji!! My hubby and I really enjoy helping people, so our free Plush Memories Lost Toy Search Service and Wedding Dresses for Tornado Victims are labors of love.

Connie: I got married in the town hall too. We had to have 2 witnesses and that was it. My sisters and brother all had big church weddings and all divorced within about 2 years. We've been married for 26 years, makes you think...

DB: Glad to be of help. I hope you had some visitors because of my post.
