You guys know I occasionally pick up a cause to try to boost visibility for them. A few things to know about this one:
It is one of our readers and I promised him a cup of coffee when we reached 100,000 readers because he was the thousandth (or something like that). It was a joke and we enjoyed a laugh between each other about it and it looks like he'll be waiting a long time for that cup of coffee.
Another thing to understand is that despite knowing quite a few bloggers with a pretty far reach, he has never brought up his needs or asked for anything. He has told us a little about his life though and how he has adopted four young children, all with special needs, and how he hopes to make his farm a destination place for other children in his community. He's told us about the animals he raises and cares for (Alpacas and Pygmy Goats if I recall) and how they have been unable to afford to make some improvements needed for the well-being of their animals and in the way of improving their farm... their home. I'm no Extreme Home Makeover celebrity (I wish I was, we'd really fix him up), but I bet if you guys contribute what you can and/or share the word with those in your network that we could help them in a big way. So check out his page on Facebook and look for the pinned post that'll show you how to make a donation if you are so inclined. Thanks. Now back to our regularly scheduled Meerkat Monday. Hmm... maybe Wild Angels Farm could raise some Meerkats?
