One day Anni was twirling and singing one of her original compositions.
"It's my gift!" she declared.
Dizzy, she fell with spectacular gracelessness.
Laying on her back on the tile floor she began flapping her arms and legs
as if she were making a snow angel.
"Falling down is also a gift!" says she.

a little kindness

I just noticed recently that Julie at a little pregnant has designated Annika's transplant fund as the July beneficiary of her advertising revenue, which is very lovely. Andrea? Was that you? I'm figuring everyone in the world already reads Julie and Paul, but I thought I'd point out that the clicks on the sidebar advertising benefit Anni's COTA account this month. Donations are tax-deductible, as COTA is a 501(c)3 charity. Although I guess "two clicks" is not exactly something you can list on a tax form. And, of course, my favorite part of COTA, any donations beyond Annika's medical needs go to assist other children needing transplants.

well...I don't know if I got it rght with the clicks. Just on the sidebar with the two ads (does suscribing to the offered newsletters help, too - I thought I do it just in case)?
Or does it only work if I buy a space for ads?
ooh, so much still to learn about the internet ;)

No way! She did it?

Yes, I asked a few months back when she was looking for beneficiaries, but I never figured she would b/c she's mostly into infertility & preemie issues, for obvious reasons.

Yay yay yay! So very happy! These will be the first ads I click on, ever.

hannah, I think the revenue generated from clicks is what is donated. I don't know. There's also a certain fee paid to advertise on her blog. Definitely she doesn't mean that she only donates if people buy ads (they are a teensy expensive from what I understand, but of course well worth it if you're looking to have blog readers eyeball your ad).

You also don't have to sign up for the newsletter.

Thank you hannah!

And of course thanks to Andrea for asking her.

And thanks Liz, just for being your kind self.

Actually, what I'm donating is the fee I'm paid for running the ads -- clicks don't factor into it, except insofar as a high click-through rate might make my site more attractive to future advertisers. So, yes, click away, please, but my donation doesn't depend on it.

Thanks, Julie, for clearing that up. And that really is super generous of you.

wanted to jot a note to let you know that I was thinking about your family today. I hope your face isn't peeling off yet from the dreaded lawnmower incident and you're again back to looking fabulous, and I hope Annika's puzzles are flat as pancakes instead of upside-down smiley faces. :) hugs.

Moreena! I am SO thrilled to see you posting here again. I am a faithful, daily reader of your "other blog" but I have loved coming here before you started that one as well. It was kind of like a little present to see stuff here when I popped in last night! Thanks!
Anni is, as always, such a joy. I just really want you to know that she is a part of our lives around here. Does that creep you out? LOL. My kids know her and love her antics and even occasionally ask me out of the blue how she's doing. (The little ones are only 5 and 8 so that's a stretch for them. The big one is 13 and to be honest... much too cool for school right now if you know what I mean.)
Dang I blab huh? Anyway. XOXOXOX to you all.
