This is the third time i’ve found myself donating to other blogger’s causes – And it feels freakin’ awesome! It feels like the money goes much further this way, and it’s like helping your family :)
So who IS this Ugly Shoe Pam? Well, i don’t know her personally, but if my girl Leigh Ann over at Save Leigh Ann says she’s a dear friend, then she’s a friend of mine! Here’s the gist of it all:
“Pam has been my best friend since we were 9 years old. She is one of the most unselfish, caring people I have ever known. And she is in turmoil right now…She is beyond broke right now. And she needs us.”
You can read more about her situation here, but needless to say this $25 would be go MUCH further in her care than in mine, or any other charity i can think of right now. Plus, it just feels great helping someone “in the community”, ya know? Here’s to things turning around for you Ugly Shoe Pam!
