For the Love of Liz


Perhaps you've heard of a blog called Matt, Liz and Madeline. It's a blog started by Matt Logelin that was a way to journal his life with his wife and their new baby. Only...his wife didn't make it. She died shortly after childbirth and Matt was left to gather himself and raise his daughter all on his own.

It's a sad story, but a loving story. And his blog chronicles all the fantastic ways he's showing his daughter how wonderful life can be.

Recently they held a gala to benefit the Liz Logelin Foundation. A charity that helps support families who've lost a loved one. I've never met Matt. I've only read his blog and never commented, much like people do here. But I felt the need to be a part of it, so I donated an assortment of stationery. It's small compared to the more amazing things up for auction, but I wanted to do something. Feel free to bid on it, or any of the other fantastic things for sale. It goes to a good cause. It's amazing how blogging can develop an emotional support system. I think we can all use some of that now and again.

Why, oh why did you direct me to that site? I'm sitting in my cube at work, bawling my eyes out. A co-worker actually stopped by because he heard me sniffling.

It wonderful that you were able to donate - I hope to bid and win some of your stuff!
