Today I am writing to ask for your help for our dear friend and fellow food blogger, Erika from The Ivory Hut. For those of you who don’t know her, she is a blogger who shares incredible recipes and photographs and writes beautifully about the stuff of life. She is also quite possibly the most wonderful, generous, caring and thoughtful person that has ever come into our lives. And late on Tuesday night, her house burned to the ground. Most importantly, her whole family escaped from the fire – but none of their possessions did. They left the house with the clothes on their back and nothing more. Erika wrote an insightful and moving post on her blog the morning after the fire. If you know her or if you have some kind words to offer her, please stop by and share your love and support in her comments section.
This is a moment where we need to come together and support our dear friend and ease her burden, because we are a community. Already I am amazed at the response. It fills my heart with joy to see all the uplifting and supportive comments on the blog we’ve created and the number of people who have already donated. Take a moment to think if this had happened to you – all that would need to be replaced, all that you would need to buy in order to get your life back on track. Try to conceptualize the scope of that loss. Then please consider a small donation to our friend in this time of great need. $5, $10, $50 or $100 – it all helps, it all adds up.
Maggy, Pam and Sharon
