If you've spent any time trolling around the internet, following the links in my sidebar, or just lurking and reading in general, I know you've seen some blog designs by Swank Web Style. BooMama's place is just one of many designed by Heather from Swank Designs, and I had been seriously considering asking her to do a little something for my little corner, until I heard the news that Heather has been diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. You can read her whole story here and here, but the long and short of it is this:
Heather will be going to the Mayo Clinic for treatment on April 25th, and BooMama is organizing a little internet-a-thon to try and raise some money for her trip, since the family finances always take a big hit when it comes to major illness. I don't know Heather, and she doesn't know me, but it doesn't matter to me at this point. Even if I only send enough her way to pay for a dinner at Chez McDonald's, I will do it because I want to and I can. Simple as that. See the "For Heather" button on my sidebar? Scroll down a little . . . yep, there it is! If you are feeling so inclined on the 18th, it will whisk you over to BooMama's where you can find all the details.
Just putting a little ready-made karma out there for you . . .
(Oh, and BooMama has done something like this before, so I can attest from personal experience that the whole shebang on the up and up.)
