February Love Drop: Ethan and Alex

It's February, which means there is another Love Drop on the way! But first, here's an update on the first ever Love Drop, which happened in January: Within the span of a single month, the Love Drop Team raised over $2,500 and gathered numerous boxes of goods to help Jill and her family cope during a difficult time in their lives (one marked by homelessness and financial worries). More than 400 generous individuals united for this project, each donating a small monetary sum to make a positive contribution for this family in need. . Thank you to all who participated in this truly wonderful act of kindness! Check out the final presentation here.

This month, the Love Drop Team asks us to help out the Rewolinski family, whose two young boys--Ethan and Alex--have severe autism. The goal is to raise $13,000 to get the boys a highly-trained service dog--for purposes of encouraging social interaction, protection, etc.--and if possible, two iPads, which would help Ethan and Alex effectively communicate with others (Alex in particular is non-verbal). Watch Ethan and Alex's video below to hear their story.

Here are three ways you can help:
  1. Join the team - This is the best way to help out, and all it takes is $1.00.
  2. Join our blogger network - Do what I do by blogging about our Love Drops each month. It's a simple, rewarding way to spread the word about a beautiful cause--one that benefits the lives of needy families from our community. This definitely helps to create awareness, and Love Drop will give you all the content you need.
  3. Give a gift or provide a service - Gift cards (iTunes would be great!), two iPads (so we can help the boys speak again!), and anything else you think could help out.
Thanks for reading. Join in, spread the word (feel free to tweet, post to Facebook, link back, etc.), and if at all possible, please drop some love on this deserving family.
