<p style=”text-align: center;”>Last month, I announced that I would be accepting June advertisers with the proceeds going to help the town of Joplin, Missouri.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>I was <strong>blown away</strong> when over 40 bloggers joined in the effort.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>Together, and with the leadership of <a href=”http://www.sippycupmom.com” target=”_blank”>Sippy Cup Mom, we created Bloggers for Joplin.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”><a href=”http://www.sippycupmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Bloggers-for-Joplin.png“><img title=”Bloggers for Joplin” src=”http://www.sippycupmom.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/06/Bloggers-for-Joplin.png” alt=”” width=”220″ height=”220″ /></a></p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>We spread the word and got amazing advertisers on board, along with a couple of generous donations.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>I have met some absolutely, amazing people during this journey who I’m honored to call friends.  I am so proud that we all came together to help.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>&nbsp;</p>
<h2 style=”text-align: center;”>We were able to donate an initial $1,348 to the <a href=”http://www.uwheartmo.org/Home_Page.php” target=”_blank”>Heart of Missouri United Way</a>.</h2>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>&nbsp;</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>The Heart of Missouri United Way is working with no overhead to provide 100% of donations to help Joplin, Missouri.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>After that initial donation, we still had donations rolling in from generous advertisers.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>&nbsp;</p>
<h2 style=”text-align: center;”>We were able to donate an <strong>additional $130</strong> for a total of  $1,478!</h2>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>&nbsp;</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>You can check out my Sippy Cup mom’s exciting video of making the initial donation via Paypal.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>All additional donations were made by Paypal also.</p>
<p style=”text-align: center;”>A HUGE thank you to the blogs that participated in this event:</p>
