Love Drop for May: The Stalnaker Family

I recently joined the Love Drop team, which is an amazing group reaching out to help others. Every month, Love Drop chooses a family in need of assistance and works to gather donations, services, etc. to present to the family. I would encourage all of you to check out the May video, which describes the story of the Stalnaker family. If you're able to donate even $1 to help the Love Drop team with our mission to help the Stalnakers, please do so using the links below.

Hey guys!  The Love Drop team is at it again! Last month they gave over $6,000 worth of cash and goods to their recipient, the Kahlen family, who had been going through a financially hard time due to the economy (and whose daughter is currently battling Tuberous Sclerosis). They focused on their love of spending time together, and brought them over 8 pairs of tickets to a whole bunch of local events. It was awesome, and you can watch how it all went down here.

This month they rally behind the Stalnakers - a family who, along with thousands of others along the gulf coast, are still reeling from the effects of the BP oil spill.  Our goal is to get them a reliable used car this month as their previous two have died, and it's getting harder and harder for them to manage w/ the one they're currently borrowing. They've been giving back to their community since they moved in, and now it's time for US to help them!

Want to help?  Here are three ways you can participate:
  1. Help them get a car! - Our #1 goal is to give them a reliable used car in decent working order. If you have any leads, discounts, or connections in this area, please email Love Drop and let them know.
  2. Give $1.00 - This money will help get them back on their feet, and relieve some financial burden. Every dollar counts!
  3. Give a gift or service - Gift cards are always helpful. Places like Target, Wal-mart, restaurants, etc would definitely help them out. Services too - especially those you can offer yourselves, or from your company.
Thanks everyone! We'll let you know how it goes!
