Last month, Melissa of Sippy Cup Mom announced that she would be accepting June advertisers with the proceeds going to help the town of Joplin, Missouri.
She was blown away when she had over 40 bloggers contacted me to let her know they wanted to do the same thing. I was one of them.
Together, we created Bloggers for Joplin.
We spread the word and got amazing advertisers on board, along with a couple of generous donations.
I have met amazing people during this that have became friends and I am so proud that we all came together to help.
We were able to donate an initial $1,348 to the Heart of Missouri United Way.
The Heart of Missouri United Way is working with no overhead to provide 100% of donations to help Joplin, Missouri.
After that initial donation, we still had donations rolling in from generous advertisers.
We were able to donate an additional $130 for a total of $1,478!
You can check out my not-very-exciting video of me making initial donation via Paypal.
All additional donations were made by Paypal also.
