Just for Joplin

Dear Mom,

Our granddaughter Logan (your step-great-granddaughter -- I think that's what Logan would be to you if you were alive) was out one day at the local grocery store to collect money for Joplin.

Isn't she a cutie? She made her own sign.

I thought this was a sweet picture of the little toddler putting money in the bucket.

Logan always said thank you and explained to people why she was collecting money. She was out there for an hour but it was a really hot day. I was told she collected around $85! I thought that was great and was amazed at the generosity of folks.

I've been working on an article for the Storm Country Anthology that I posted. I'm excited to do this because of, and for my friend, Geoffrey. I asked him if he'd write part of the piece in his own words and he's already sent it back to me. Now I have to do some more work before it's ready for submission.

Mom, I know not everyone can donate money, so I hope all the Midwest writers or those who have a storm story to tell (even if they're not writers), to turn something in--it goes to a good cause! Read the details for this anthology submission.


  1. What a sweet girl, to spend time in the heat drumming up donations! I'm glad she met some generous people and imagine she is proud of her contribution (as are you!).

  2. Such an altruistic, dear little girl.
    I have nominated you. Visit my blog for details, and if you are too busy, I understand.

  3. Lovely, Lynne!! I've got to remember to write a story for this anthology!! Hope to get together sometime soon!


Thanks for commenting. I don't always comment back, but I do appreciate it.
