I don't think many don't know about Maddie. I didn't know about her until I read Becky's post about Maddie, her mom, Heather, and her dad Mike. Today I read Becky's post about Maddie's March Of Dimes' donation site going from $3,000 to OVER $20,000! That is pretty amazing.
Although, many aren't in a position to make a donation, there are still ways we can do SOMETHING. You can go here and get a badge and wear purple and turn your blog purple, to remember Maddie. But what we still need to do, how you can still help is to donate to the Spohr’s to cover the prohibitive cost of the funeral (around $7,000). Go to the PayPal site and punch in the email firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to donate. Give what you can, when you can. Let’s ease their burden as best we can.
In honor of Maddie, and to show that just because I didn't "know" her and her family I still care, I am going purple. It's the least I can do.
Heather and Mike, words can not express the heart break I am feeling for you. I am praying for you and sending you so many hugs. I'm wishing you a peaceful heart.
