Love Harder

About a week ago, something really amazing happened. My reader was filled with not one, not two but MANY posts about a blogger, and the man she loves. And I'm not kidding about the many. I saw Kyla, Wishcake, Katie,Nicole, Ashley Marie and Doniree. And they were only some of the participants. It amazed me to see post after post after post from the people I've been reading for a long time reach out and care. I loved that a blogger, just like many of you, asked for nothing more than prayers and happy thoughts, and that the blogging community came together to help. Love Harder is about a girl named Brandy. Her request was simple, her boyfriend was told he might have multiple myeloma “an incurable cancer, that gives a person an average of five years of continued life” and asked us to spare some positive thoughts and prayers for him. Her letter was re-all over the internet, her e-mails were sent and breaths was held on the day of the doctors appointment. And then the diagnosis was confirmed.

The blogosphere came together, showed Brandy how much they loved her and started raising funds for the research of Multiple Myeloma. A blog was started, a twitter account created, and a shop opened.

Laurie, one of the nicest people I've ever had the pleasure of working with, posted a request for a web designer. After being blown away by the love and support of these people for one of their own, how could I not want to help where I could?

So I offered my services, and designed something super cute, and super simple.

If you have a moment, please visit loveharder.org, and check it out. If you have the means, please donate. If you don't, please send your happy thoughts towards Brandy and her guy.

Sometimes its just about helping and loving and caring where you can. Sometimes, weathering the storm is knowing that people out there care. Sometimes, the world is a brilliant, brilliant place.
