I would have posted about this sooner but only found out about this yesterday. Tamara, of View From The Porch, has been diagnosed with basal cell skin cancer. She reportedly does not have health insurance and thus could use some help to pay her medical expenses relative to the cancer treatments. Along those lines, an organized fund raiser, of sorts, has commenced with the goal of raising enough cash for her not to have to worry about how those bills will be paid. You can donate to her on her blog via her 'tip jar'.
A bunch of other bloggers have donated prizes that can be won dependent upon the amount one donates. Those efforts were individual ventures all with the same aim but now have been organized into a single endeavor as explained by Jay over at MA-rooned. If you would like an explanation of how the prize system works, click on this link: http://www.ma-rooned.com/2012/11/snark-mistress-fundraiser-update-and.html.
Whether or not you are interested in any of the prizes that are being offered, it certainly would be nice of yo to make a donation to Tamara to help her KICK CANCERS ASS!
All the best,
The Scrap Heap
