Love Drop!

I'm posting as part of the Love Drop network of bloggers. Love Drop is a micro-giving network of people who unite as a communityto help one person or family a month. The idea is simple: once a month we bring our community together to help a struggling family, both financially and with goods, services and gifts. To keep it brief, you can think Extreme Home Makeover with an twist of Oprah thrown in. It's basically a web show shot in video installments, with the founders literally traveling to the family's house at the end of each month to do the Drop. This project is all about coming up with creative and fun ways to make a difference for someone. The very first Love Drop we’re working with Jill and her kids in Chicago, who’ve lost everything in a fire and are now homeless for a second time. They’ve been through a lot, but you’ll be amazed at how much they continue to give back.

Here’s what you can do to make our first Love Drop special for Jill and her family:
Join the team – Become a member by paying whatever you want. Even $1.00.
Join our blogger network – Blog about our Love Drops once a month! It’s easy, it’s rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps the families!). We’ll give you all the content you need. Give a gift – Gift cards, clothes, a homemade scarf, a bike, whatev.Provide a service – Web design, tax help, legal services, etc.(Email all ideas/questions to team (at) lovedrop.us, we’ll make it happen)
