Calling in All Favors, For the Love of Andrea

So, to all of you whom I have met over the past few years and have attempted to do favors for, to which you’ve replied, “What can I do for you?”  I’m answering that very question with this post.  This is how you can help me: by helping Andrea.

Andrea (Voss) Vellinga is a victim of the state fair tragedy.  She’s been hospitalized since the night of the accident.  More importantly, however, she is also a mom, a wife, a daughter, a sister, and a friend to many.  Although I don’t personally know her, one of my friends does.  And my friend is helping to arrange a fundraiser for her, her family and her recovery through her church in Anderson, Indiana, Ovid Community Church.

This program is called For The Love of Andrea.  There will be a weekend rally in Pendleton, IN on Sept 23-25th to raise funds for her medical bills and recovery.  On Saturday, September 24th, there will be a silent and live auction and proceeds will go to her and her recovery through the not for profit church.  Here’s how I humbly suggest you get involved:

1.  Donate an item for the auction – I’m donating a book.  But if you have cool stuff to donate, please consider it.  If it’s a big item and you need a pickup, the email address to arrange pick up of the item is fortheloveofandrea at gmail dot com.
2.  Consider donating cash – everything –all the details are at their website, www.fortheloveofandrea.com.  Go there, click on ‘how you can help’, and figure out if you can help somehow.
3. Tweet/like/+1 this post and/or the website, everywhere.
4.  Even if you can only think of her and keep her in your thoughts and prayers, I along with so many others would appreciate it.  And that’s doing A. LOT!

Seriously, I’m calling in favors on this one.  You don’t even have to tell me you helped! Or, if you did, TELL ME and I’ll stay off your back awhile about the “What can I do for you?” question.  Just. Help. Please.  Anyway you can.  I would really appreciate it, and I’m certain Andrea and her family would too.  Thanks!
