Yesterday I hopped on Twitter and saw the hashtag “#prayersforAnissa” and had no freakin’ clue what was going on. After asking a couple of people, I found out that Anissa had a stroke yesterday afternoon and was/is in ICU.
Since all the extra cash we have is used before we even get it, I can’t donate to help Anissa and her family. BUT, what I can do is the get her story out there.
I’ve direct messaged some of the people I regularly talk to on Twitter with more reach than me and asked them to mention Anissa. Thanks to: Montaignejns, PeasandBananas, Joegerstandt, SookieBonTemps, and David_N_Wilson. If I missed anyone, I’m sorry. I also think it’s freakin’ awesome all of the people who have retweeted for someone they’ve never talked to – sometimes people amaze you with how cool they can be.
Part of getting the word out is sending you to a place where you can help make a difference.
Heather at The Spohrs Are Multiplying has set up a page with updates on Anissa’s condition as well as where you can send packages/letters and a sign-up form to help out Anissa and her family.
You can also find updates at Aiming Low – though they’ve been having server issues.
Anne at The Meglomaniac Mommy has a “Pray for Anissa” button you can grab and put on your site or use as a Twitter avatar.
If you’re like me and don’t have any spare cash to donate then spread the word.
If I’ve missed a site, let me know and I’ll add it.
