Love Drop February 2011 – Ethan and Alex

Last month the Love Drop Team raised over $2,500 to help Jill and her family get back on their feet after being homeless not once but twice! The final presentation can be seen here. Great job, guys!

Have you heard about Love Drop? The project officially launched on January 1, 2011 (1/1/11).  J. Money of Budgets are Sexy and Nate St. Pierre of It Starts with Us are the founders of Love Drop.  Love Drop is a micro-giving network of people banded together and donating to help one person or family each month.  At the end of each month, J. Money and Nate will deliver the money and needed items to the person or family being helped for that month.

Love Drop February 2011 – Ethan and Alex

This month Love Drop is helping the Rewolinski family.  Ethan is 7 and Alex is 6.  These two brothers have severe autism.  Love Drop has a very large goal this month: they are planning to raise $13,000 to cover the costs of placing and training a highly skilled service dog with the family through the 4 Paws for Ability organization.  The service dog will help protect the boys as well as help them to interact socially. Love Drop is also hoping to raise enough money to buy two iPads for the boys, which will help them to communicate again.

Here’s how you can help the Rewolinski family:

  1. Join the team – This is the best way to help out, and all it takes is $1.00.
  2. Join the blogger network – Blog about the Love Drops each month. It’s easy, it’s rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps our families).
  3. Give a gift or provide a service – Gift cards (iTunes would be great!), two iPads, and anything else you think could help out.

I’m so excited for the guys who are making Love Drop a reality. I love to see a great idea come to fruition.

I wonder if this family is aware that there is a specialized diet that can heal autism?  Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride is a neurologist and neurosurgeon whose son was diagnosed with autism.  By using a nutritional approach, she was able to treat him off the spectrum.  She has since worked with hundreds of autistic children in her clinic who have been healed from autism with the Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS) diet.

In the meantime, the family is in need of our help.

I’ve personally committed to sponsoring the team with $5 a month and I’d like to challenge you to do the same!

Did you take me up on my challenge last month?  Will you meet my challenge this month?
