Introducing: Love Drop

Each being on this planet deserves love, a touch of kindness and compassion.  And amidst particularly tough times, some people could certainly use the love, via a few warm hearts and helping hands.  Each month, as part of the Love Drop Blogger Network, I'll be posting an introduction to Love Drop's featured individual or family member in need of our help.  The goal is to raise support and awareness for a great cause: building a community who believes in changing lives through the power of positivity and heartfelt, well-intended giving.

This month's Love Drop focuses on Jill and her children in Chicago.  Watch Jill's video below:

This project is all about coming up with creative and fun ways to make a difference for someone. Here's what you can do to make our first Love Drop special for Jill and her family:

  • Join the team - Become a member by paying whatever you want. Even $1.00.
  • Join our blogger network - Blog about our Love Drops once a month! It's easy, it's rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps the families!). Love Drop will give you all the content you need.
  • Give a gift or provide a service - Gift cards, household goods, football cards/jerseys for the boys, web design services, pampering gifts for Jill, etc. (email all ideas/questions to team (at) lovedrop.us, and we'll make it happen).
Want to know more about Love Drop?  Here's a rundown, courtesy of Love Drop's very own Nate and J$:
Love Drop is a micro-giving network of people who unite as a community to help one person or family a month. By subscribing to the team for as low as $1, they make it easy for their members to change lives in a fun and tangible way. Each month Love Drop delivers a unique combination of unexpected financial gifts, personal encouragement and the support of local and online communities.
Every month the Love Drop community comes together to raise as much support and awareness as we possibly can. It starts on the website - LoveDrop.us, gets spread across our entire network of blogs, continues through the forums where all our members are brainstorming, and finally lands on the front steps of our recipients. Literally.
At the end of every month, Nate and J$ show up in the town the people live in to deliver this pile of goodness. The money, the gifts, the services, everything! It's all on film, and it all ends with an amazing outpouring of love. And then it starts all over again the next month. Help them, and their flagship partner, Kona Grill, make this drop in Chicago amazing!
I hope you all will nurture that giving spirit and help to spread the word about this beautiful cause. Please feel free to Tweet, share on Facebook, email a friend, etc.--whatever means you see fit to take part, build awareness, and drop some love.  Thanks!
