Wanna Help?

I'll be honest I am new to the blog world but after my sister and I started reading a few of our friends blogs I was hooked...and thought I would try my hand at now I admit it I'm hooked I love to blog, I love to put pictures of my family on here and share with the world and I love to read and reread my favorites that I have listed to the right of my blog...which brings me to the point of today's blog.....
I found the blog My Charming Kids blog early in my beginning blog days, and I have been following her blog since (click on her blog located to the right and take a peek it's great) Just this Monday (Dec.1st) she posted a challenge for people to donate to 3 different organizations for Christmas, which I will post about each organization at the end, in turn your name is entered and on Dec. 14 she will announce the winner of the name drawn, she is giving away a camera and many more prizes, which is out of her own pocket....this is the thing, she started this contest Dec. 1st it is the 3rd and in three short days she has already raised OVER 7 THOUSAND DOLLARS!!!! Awesome!!!! So don't tell me that one blog doesn't make a difference, that's a lot of money people, so check out her blog and what one woman with a blog and a great idea is doing! It only takes one person with a purpose to make a difference! If you would like to donate I have added a button on the right of my blog click on it for more details
