Dear Lily June,
Today, as part of our Family Bucket List, we went grocery shopping for a food bank instead of just for ourselves. All the food you’re sitting on cost us $50–what your parents used to spend a week on cigarettes. I promise you, little one, I’m never going to live like I’m just killing time until I die again. You have put everything into perspective for me, and you’ve made me want to make this world–your world–a better one.
To anyone else reading this, if you haven’t already, consider giving even a write in of a dollar donation to Second Harvest Food Bank. Just one dollar helps them buy four whole meals, and you might help a little girl like Lily June have a happy tummy for another night.
Here’s a VIP list of bloggers who’ve already donated. You know you want me to add your name! (Just send me a comment letting you know that you gave, and I’ll happily link back to you.)
I love you, Lily. I thank you deeply, any and all readers and donators. I can’t tell you what you mean to me.
