Help us Shine a Light
The collective power of Care2 members is awesome. Together, we’ve moved legislation, saved lives and protected endangered species. So imagine what we can do if we direct all that Goodness on a single individual.
Every once in a while we hear a story of a good person who is going through a really tough time. For whatever unknown reason, Life just seems to be giving this person the raw end of the deal. Today, we’re going to shine one glorious sunbeam of collective love on one such individual to bring a little bit of karmic balance back to the world.
Our target today is Ann Pietrangelo. Ann has a wonderful heart, and many of you probably know her as a frequent contributor to our Healthy & Green Living channel (and the health reform channel on Causes). Unfortunately, Ann was hit with MS, a debilitating disease that causes fatigue, muscle weakness and chronic pain when she was in her mid-40s. She didn’t let that get in her way, and chose instead to channel her energy into writing to help others with MS and other chronic illnesses. However, in late October, Ann was diagnosed with an aggressive type of breast cancer and is currently undergoing brutal rounds of treatment. It’s unfair, it’s wrong, and it just doesn’t make sense. But love is a powerful force, so together, we’re going to send her a collective bolt of sunshine to brighten her day and hopefully fight off some of that badness.
Please take a moment to send Ann some good thoughts via a brief message in the comments area below. Your words will make a difference, and together we’ll show that love is the most powerful force of all.
p.s. We’ll be doing more of these type of collective actions in the future. We’d like to hear your thoughts as well as nominations for other individuals who could use such a boost in the future.
