Spreading the Word, #Help4Joplin

Yesterday morning my heart was sad and breaking for my friend in Joplin. While my heart is still so sad for the devastation, it is also so full of gratitude. In just a few hours with the help of the Bigger Picture Blogs Community we had set up #Help4Joplin and gained donations from these sponsors:

A Soft Landing
Jamie Shaw

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for this companies who responded so quickly with a YES! We want to help. 

Now I'm asking for more help, from you.

Sarah updated us yesterday, with words and pictures. I am fighting tears again this morning. While there house was spared she has lost her town. Both of her churches were destroyed, her daughter's preschool, their hospital. Friends and family lost homes. I cannot even begin to imagine what that feels like. 

Our Help for Joplin auction will go live TOMORROW,  WEDNESDAY MAY 25 at 8:00 am. We will be hosting the auction on our Bigger Picture Blogs Page. To make this a success we need to spread the word. Will you blog about the event? Tweet it? Post it on your Facebook page? Make our button your profile pic, it's on all our Facebook Pages. 

Use your blog or your Facebook page to post about the Help 4 Joplin auction.
In your post, be sure to state:

When you do head over to Hyacynth's and share you're link. We want you to share both to show Sarah and Joplin our solidarity, how many of us are standing together for them but also to say Thank you. Hyacynth will be giving away a beautiful coffee cozy from A Soft Landing and a gift card to Starbucks to one of you who helps us spread the word.

Will you stand with us and Help Joplin?
