El tema de hoy es ‘Purple’ (violeta), y el timing es impecable, como verán al final del post.
Pero primero, un par de fotos que tienen que ver con el tema… después lean abajo, por favor.

Maddie Spohr is the beautiful girl you see in the picture above. Born over 11 weeks premature, she passed away just last week. This tragic story has affected many in the blogosphere, including those who –like me- found out through other people, like Lotus (aka) Sarcastic Mom.
 
Many marches to remember Maddie and celebrate her life are currently being organized. They’re called ‘Walk 4 Maddie’ and you can read all about it here (you will be surprised at how many there are already!). Purple shirts are being designed, because purple was Maddie’s favourite colour (Lotus even ‘dyed’ her blog purple these days).
 
If you click on the banner, you will be redirected to the March of dimes site, and even be able to make a donation (no matter how big or small) to help these little kids receive a better treatment. The original one –created by the Spohrs- had an original goal of $3,000 and is currently past $30,000, so I’m linking to Lotus’ fundraiser instead. Very few people I know in the cyberworld do more for others than her.

Maddie Spohr es la hermosa nenita que ven en la foto de arriba. Nació 11 semanas prematura, y falleció esta semana que pasó. Su historia tan trágica afectó a muchos en la blogesfera, incluso a aquellos que –como yo–, supimos de ella a través de otra persona, como Lotus (alias) Sarcastic Mom.
 
Se están organizando marchas para recordar a Maddie por todos lados. Se las llama ‘Walk 4 Maddie’ y pueden leer sobre ellas aquí (les sorprenderá la cantidad que hay ya!). Se están preparando remeras (playeras) color violeta, porque ese era el color favorito de Maddie (Lotus hasta ‘tiñó’ su blog de violeta por estos días).
 
Si hacen click en el banner, van a ser redirigidos al website de March of dimes, donde podrán hacer una donación (no importa si es chiquita) para ayudar a estos chiquitos a tener un mejor tratamiento. El ‘fundraiser’ original –creado por los Spohrs- tenía una meta de $3,000 y ya pasó los $30,000, así que les dejo el link al de Lotus en su lugar. El dinero va a la misma causa, de todos modos, y la verdad, conozco muy poca gente que haga más por los demás que Lotus.

  1. I remember my kids sitting in plastic tubs just like that. Give them a box, and they are much happier than with a fancy toy.
