Some Gave All....

 (totally stolen from my friend Ashley @ Raising Brats)

When faced with tragedy people react in different ways. Some break down, unable to function, others discover how strong they truly are. Like Rachel, who is finding the strength in her tragedy to do something for others. Not only is she hosting a great giveaway on her blog, A Little Pink in a World of Camo, but she is doing something great to honor all warriors, specifically her late husband, Cpl Jonathan Porto. She's running in the Run for the Warriors 5k next month. (She's the warrior in this situation if you ask me.) She asked each of us, her readers, to donate just one dollar towards her contribution to the foundation, and it got me to thinking, so I have teamed up with Mrs GI Joe and Mrs. Muffins and we decided to help spread the word. If you look to the right of this post you will see a cute little button (made by the one and only Mrs. Muffins!), if you click on it, it will take you to Rachel's Hope for the Warriors page. You can also highlight all the text in that nifty little box and add the button to your page. I cant tell you you have to donate money to this great cause, but I can ask you to consider it. I can ask you to consider donating $1, or $2, or $5 in honor of a fallen or wounded warrior that you know, or in honor of Cpl Porto, like the rest of us.
