Making A Difference

We know that none of us, alone, can save the world. But maybe a bunch of us, together, can help save one person in it.  Read this story at Big Wolf’s Daily Plate of Crazy, and I hope you’ll consider sharing in whatever way you can, and doing whatever you can to help out.

    I wonder if we should all get together and have a blogger auction as an online fundraiser? Has anyone any experience in selling stuff online?
    Just a thought…I could donate something.

    I think a Facebook campaign (which I wrote to Big Little Wolf about) would raise the money. I would be very happy to help set it up, and help manage the page, get the word out, take out some ads, etc. So sad, the medical system is very out of wack!

    Done and done. It it reassuring when someone you trust calls your attention to something about which you can take positive steps. Thank you.

    I admire the efforts. But–somewhat different perspective here–I wish the doctors and hospitals–would also “chip in” and charge the same as they charge insurance companies. Insurance companies pay far less than the “quoted rate”–and the funds would be much more in reach.

    I applaud helping Ashley and hope the Americans reading will continue their good deeds by working to change the system through votes, political contributions and protests.

    When I was growing up in the US, my dad and the other doctors in his clinic would often work on cases like this, pro bono. HMOs wrecked US medicine, he said.

    You are all so fabulous! (Kathy – just dropped you a line and copied Kelly!)

    Ashley left a comment on the post – earlier today. Wrenching.

    I can’t think of a better way for any of us to spend our time than helping her, and using that energy to then reach out and keep helping.

    Wonderful ideas from your readers. We can all share this with our own. Thanks for posting her story.

    Thanks for posting that. I think an online fundraising is a great idea
