what friends do

have you ever wondered how you can help out someone who is sick or has had a recent loss? in a fast paced society, things don't stop if we have to. yard work, laundry, dishes, cleaning and cooking all still need done.

enter what friends do...
{here's a great little video tidbit on how it got started.}

a few things i am in love with about this site...
  • their motto: "we may not be able to change the outcome, but we hope to help change the journey."
  • my hubs actually sent me the link...seriously!{fran basically runs the office where my hubs works. without fran, the office might flip over and shake a leg. anyway, fran and her daughter started this site bc, well, people need a team when there's something going on to keep life going. they had first hand experience when fran's daughter's friend got cancer and needed a team.}
  • there's on online calendar tool for folks to look at to see when they can help and what is needed. if dd needs to go to ballet at 4 on tuesday's, someone can sign up for that.
  • it's do-er thing and you know i love that. it helps people have normalcy, a common place for putting their needs out and others being able to put their name in a place to do the help!
and of course, it's something people can use in addition to a blog...i love it! and it's done in memory of a lovely people who were on her team, fighting for her! i wish i would have had something like this when i was on bedrest last year or in the first 5 months of my sofia's preemie life.

so, know a military family who has a soldier overseas? or a new mom? or a family moving to another state? or someone in the hospital? or a grieving family? this is a great way to set up some much needed help and support during a difficult time...and it's a simple click away!
