Yeah. I’m going to ask you to give money to a cause again. Actually, two causes.
I can’t say that I know Erik, who blogs at Live From the Alamo City, that well. That is mostly my fault. We’ve had several friendly exchanges on my blog and on his blog, and we’ve been talking about getting a group of bloggers together for barbecue. (San Antonio isn’t that far.) But life events keep getting in the way.
Anyway, Erik and his wife are going through a whole bunch of shit that nobody should have to go through. Car troubles, having to find a new place to live…
But the biggest thing is that Erik’s wife is pregnant, and their child is not going to survive. This sucks so horribly that I have trouble coming up with words for it without getting all choked up, so I’ll direct you over to this post at the great and good Erin Palette’s site. I’m pretty sure Erin got choked up as well, but since she’s already written a post, I can
be lazy leverage her choke-up-ness.
There’s a YouCaring page set up for donations to help Erik and his wife with expenses. I’d like to ask you to consider donating if you can. I wouldn’t ask you to do this if I hadn’t already done so; I just wish I could donate more.
You’ll notice that Erin’s post is a twofer. I don’t know TinCan Assassin at all, either, but he’s going through a messy personal situation right now, and could also use help with lawyers and money to pay for lawyers. If you can spare some funds for him as well, I’d really appreciate it. Again, I wouldn’t ask you to do this if I had not already done so.
