Last week my daughter, who will be six soon, had a huge epiphany. We were driving in the car, going through our usual routine on the usual days when she said, “Life is just circles, Mom.” In the moment, she really wasn’t too happy about these “circles” because she was craving a change. But we went on to talk about the rhythms of our life, and the people within our community, and she started getting excited as she realized who and what is already in her own, young circle of influence.
As a business, Love Drop is a part of our circle. We love what they do, and we give on a monthly basis to support their efforts to “pay it forward” in communities across America. Last month they gave over $5,000 worth of cash and goods to their recipient, the Aubin family, who was struggling financially after the passing of their dad, and this month they’re ready to do it again and help out another person 🙂 They’ve given out over $45,000 in the past 6 months, and show no signs of stopping. Here’s how last month’s Love Drop #6 went down.
This month they’re heading down to Atlanta to help Felicity, a little 4-year-old girl who was just diagnosed with brain cancer. Felicity had immediate surgery and is currently undergoing aggressive radiation treatments for the remaining portion of her tumor. We want to raise $5,000 for her family to help cover mounting medical costs, as well as the future expenses a new baby on its way will bring. With your support and generosity, we can really do something special for them! Watch the video about the family now!
Here are three ways you can help:
- Give $25 towards medical bills <– Click this link to contribute $25 towards Felicity’s radiation treatments. It’ll help them out a ton!
- Give a gift or service– Gift cards are always helpful. Places like Target, Wal-mart, restaurants, etc would definitely help them out. Services too – especially those you can offer yourselves, or from your company.
- Join our blogger network – Blog about our Love Drops each month like I am 🙂 It’s easy, it’s rewarding, and it REALLY helps spread the word (which in turn helps our families). Love Drop will give you all the content you need.
- If you know of anyone yourself that could use their help, make sure to let them know.
Thanks so much guys! Here’s to a great month of paying it forward!

Your daughter is so cute!!! Very smart too – she needs to teach a lot of us adults all about those circles 😉 Thanks for passing on the good word on our project! You rock.
