Candy *Hearts* Joy Like BR80 2

I've been struggling with the flu this week, so apologies for not getting to any of your blogs. I have a couple of days work-free so I'm going to utilize my time wisely (WIP, of course!). I'm taking the rest of the week off from blog land. My foggy brain, snotty nose, and muscle aches just can't cope with everything I'm used to doing!
But before I do say farewell for the weekend, I'd like to take a minute to drill something very important into your brains! Go and give a little to the I *Heart* Joy Like BR80 2: Use your cushion monies to change the frickin' world fundraiser being held over at Candyland's joint. I've donated my bit, now it's your turn! Just click the banner at the bottom of this post.
Here's the deal:
•If every one of you can dig up enough loose change to equal $1, Candy will have raised $357 for women, children and families in need.
•If every one of you gives up one meal out this week to equal $5, Candy will have raised $1785 for women, children and families in need.
•If every one of you can spare $10, Candy will have raised $3570 for women, children and families in need.
Her goal $357, because she truly believes if we work together, $1 turns into a brand new beginning for the women, children and families of Ghana, West Africa.
Don't think. Just DO!

See you all on Monday! MWAH!


  1. Candyland is doing something great with this.

    I hope you feel better! The stomach flu sucks majorly, I was done and out all last week so you have my empathy!

  2. I was afraid when we didn't email or FaceBook yesterday that your flu had worsened. I'm glad to hear you have some days off to recuperate (and write!). Feel better, hon!

    Candyland rocks!! I hope every visitor today follows our lead and dumps some change into the pot! A little goes so far in Africa :)

  3. Feel better soon! And good for you for using this time to write. I don't know if I'd be that disciplined.

    Also, thanks for the link to a great cause.


  4. Awww feel better:(
    Thanks for the post! If only everyone could give, like you and Nicole and a few others who've helped out, the women of Ghana could be empowered and take care of their families:)
