UPDATED: You’ve all heard me talking about my friend Anissa before. She’s amazing and she was once generous to me when she didn’t have to be so now I’m trying to do the same. She’s one of us and is recovering from multiple strokes and after many months is finally coming home (yay!) but she’s currently hemiplegic and her copay for outpatient therapy is $100 a day for the next 40 days. She’s a mom with small children and they need help. That’s why I’m asking you to donate if you can. $10 is ideal but even $5 will help. And here’s what I’m giving back. See the sponsorship thing at the bottom of this post? Leave a comment below saying that you donated even a dollar and in two weeks I’ll pick one person at random and will pimp you (or the site of your choice) for free as the sponsor of the weekly wrap-up. Click here to donate directly to her family or if that link won’t work for you then you can paypal it to this address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you, guys. Thank you for being who you are, and for making a difference, and for making us all feel a little less helpless and alone.
It’s Sunday, which means it’s time for the weekly wrap-up, y’all:
This week on my sex column (which is satirical and relatively safe for work if your boss isn’t a douche-canoe):
This week on the internets:
- I got inaugurated. More on that later.
This week on shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:
Comment of the day: I have been pulling for Anissa since her stroke though I don’t know her at all except through some of my Twitter and blog friends. My father-in-law had a stroke recently. A stroke is so devastating for the stroke victim and the family. When my family gets discouraged, I tell them how Anissa’s doing and how it takes TIME. I’m so happy for Anissa and her family that she’s getting to go home. I don’t want you to pimp my blog, I want you to pimp the Race Against Violence here in Houston on March 6. I’m trying to put together a social media team to walk and raise money for the Houston Area Women’s Center. Hope you choose me…it’s important. ~ Kathryn
