>You come across the neatest ideas online!  Last week, a friend pointed me to Love Drop, an innovative new website, set up as a micro-giving network of people who unite as a community to help one person or family each month. Every month, Love Drop delivers a unique combination of unexpected financial gifts, personal encouragement and the support of local and online communities.  Check out this video that tells more about this unique giving organization:

Last month the Love Drop Team raised over $13,000 (and 3 iPads!) to help two little boys with autism receive a service dog. They were beyond touched, and the Love Drop community did this in only 1 month – that’s it. Everyone came together and gave a few bucks each to impact one family’s life.

This month, Love Drop will start all over again and rally behind Katie, a single mom out in Dallas battling not only two brain tumors so far (she’s knocked out one, and currently working on the other), but who’s also dealing with hydrocephalus. They’re teaming up with folks at Blissdom this month to not only bring the community her way, but to make a huge dent in her medical bills.

Want to help? Here are 3 ways Love Drop could use you:

  1. Give $1.00 – This is the best way to help out and join the Love Drop team at the same time.
  2. Join Love Drop’s 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.
  3. Give a gift or provide a service – Gift cards are always helpful. Places like Target, Safeway, gas stations, etc would definitely help them out.
