"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Help the Liz Logelin Foundation

The Christie Cookie Company is giving away $25,000 to charity. All you have to do is click on this contest link, fill out the form, and make sure you pick The Liz Logelin Foundation from the drop down menu.

For those of you who haven't read Matt's blog, Matt lost his wife 27 hours after the birth of their daughter Madeline. People rallied around Matt and, instead of just trying to maintain his life, Matt decided to pay it forward by starting The Liz Logelin Foundation. The mission statement of The Liz Logelin Foundation says "The Liz Logelin Foundation was established to assist families who find themselves in the heartbreaking, catastrophic situation of having lost a spouse, life-partner, and parent. The Foundation’s goal is to financially assist these families as they deal with the loss of their loved ones, and struggle to move forward."

Take a few moments out of your day and follow that link to the contest form. Those few moments will pay tribute to much loved and desperately missed woman and the family she left behind.

Kristin, this is in response the comment..

In India, there is still NO guidelines formulated concretely about Plan B ads. And if there is any policy, these marketers are yet to go through with it.

I added my vote for the charity donation. Thank you for the link! I have not checked out his blog before, but will be sure to do so soon. Thanks for sharing. Sounds like a heart breaking story. But also very inspiring what he is doing to honor his wife's life and memory.

Kristin,
I remember hearing about this last year and I thought how awful. It's really sad and I am glad there is support for others like him out there. I went to the link and left my vote for this charity.
