love drop {orange county}

by @according2kelly on April 11, 2011

Love Drop is a micro-giving network of people (all across the country) who unite as a community to make a difference in the lives of one person or family a month. by encouraging people to give just $1.00, they make it easy for their members to change lives in a super fun & super easy way.love drop orange countyat the end of every month, Nate and J$ show up in the town where the family (or person) “of the month” live, and present them with everything the team raised — all the money, the gifts, whatever the community helped get. it’s all captured on film, and it all ends with everyone involved making a difference! (and then it starts all over again the next month).

in january the Love Drop team pulled together $2,500 (plus lots of other goods & services) to help a chicago family. Love Drop #2 raised an amazing $13,000 to help two brothers with autism get a service dog. & last month Love Drop gave over $5,000 worth of cash and goods to their recipient, katie, who has battled several brain tumors over the years.

this month the Love Drop team is coming to orange county to rally behind the kahlen’s – a local family who has been hit hard by the economy, and by their daughter’s serious medical condition, tuberous sclerosis. in addition to financial assistance, they’re planning to unite the artistic community to help support kent’s amazingly beautiful glassmaking work.

how you can help the kahlen’s

want to help? here are some quick & easy ways you can participate:
1. give $1.00 – this is the best way to help out. donating just a dollar will help them get back on their feet & relieve some financial burden. really & truly – EVERY dollar counts!

2. help us get tickets – the kahlen’s LOVE spending time together as a family. ee’d love to surprise them with tickets to local orange county attractions, museum’s, amusement parks & baseball games. they might not be able to afford a vacation, but we’d love to help provide them with a few “staycations.”

3. give a gift or service – gift cards are always helpful & appreciated. target, the grocery store, restaurants, etc. services too – especially those you can offer yourselves, or from your own company.

4. donate a piece of art – Love Drop started their first art shop this month, and would love to feature your artwork in it. proceeds go to help the kahlen’s this month, and is a great way to promote your work.

5. join the blogger network – blog about the Love Drops each month (like i am). it’s easy, it’s rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps our families). Love Drop will give you all the content you need.

please, please, please… help us, help the Kahlen’s. joining the Love Drop community is easy – it’s as simple as donating $1.00.

p.s. money is always needed. But honestly, the most fabulous “gifts” are when people start giving creatively. tell Love Drop HOW you want to give & they will make it happen.

This is ABSOLUTELY wonderful. I am going to help promote this idea. I really want to help. I am going to talk with my husband and see what would best fit our finances for the month. Thank you thank you for sharing. I have a blog about giving back and it started with helping someone once a month and now its turned into more than that. I would love for you to check it out.
