Recently, on the Floating Hospital for Children’s Facebook page, they had a picture of a young woman who had delivered some “Smile Bags” for the children.
From her website:
For Project Share A Smile, I chose to help young children in local hospitals because three years ago I was one of those kids. I went to the Children’s Hospital at Dartmouth for surgery after being diagnosed with a heart complication. The only thing I remember about that day was how miserable I was. I felt so bored and unhappy. Through my project, I wanted to turn my negative experience into something positive for someone else. I started Project Share A Smile in order to brighten the days of children in hospitals, just like I once was. If I can make one child smile, then I have accomplished what I set out to do.
I thought this was a great idea and wanted to make a donation to her. I sent her an e-mail and explained that while Alexander had not received one of her bags, I thought it was a great idea! We exchanged a few e-mails and I told her about Alexander. She asked if she could blog about him! Of course I said YES! Some people were having trouble with the link, so if it does not go right to the link, then look on her home page for where it says “blog”. She did a great job!
A few months ago, I was looking up new blogs to read and came across one called “Fearless Formula Feeder”. At first glance I thought it was something by those nut jobs that think that breastfeeding is the ONLY way to feed you baby, and if you don’t you are a bad mother! Well, this site was just the opposite! It was a site to support those that choose not to breastfeed or that are unable to breastfeed for whatever reason. They have a guest blog on Friday nights and I wrote a piece for them. I really liked what they had to say in their introduction of me.
