Operation Laundry Room Recovery

Hopefully everyone who reads this blog is already reading Dwija's blog, House Unseen - Life Unscripted. And hopefully you already know about her high risk pregnancy and so you are praying like saint for her unborn baby, her, and her whole family.

You may also be aware that her fixer upper house has a crappy laundry room with broken machines and other unpleasantries... like mice. Not a nice situation when you have a bunch of kids and should really be on bed rest.

Anyways... all that to get to this:

Cari at Clan Donaldson is hosting a fundraiser to at least get a plumber to the house or at best to hire a contractor to remodel the laundry like a one-room version of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. But without Ty Pennington, whose absence could be seen as a good or a bad thing, depending on who you are and what you think of guys with soul patches and megaphones.

Let me tell you something:

When JF was in the NICU people prayed and gave from all over the country and world. We got checks for hundreds of dollars from people we barely even know. We also got cards with $2 or $5 or $10. ALL of it was appreciated and all of it was needed. And we were even more humbled by the people who gave us a couple of ones because it was all they had. So if $1 is all you have to give, please give it.

I know most of us aren't privileged enough to know Dwija personally but here is a chance for the Body of Christ to respond, serve, love, tend, and witness. I really encourage you to click on the link to Cari's blog and find the "Donate Now"  button at the bottom of the post. If you can, please give.


  1. I'm behind on my blog reading so I hadn't seen Cari's post yet. Thx for the heads up! I'll give what I can. Dwija is a sweetheart. :-)

  2. I'e only seen a couple of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition", but that sneaky Ty Pennington makes me cry EVERY TIME!

    Thanks for sharing the post, Bonnie.
    Hey- do you think we could get Ty out there, too? That would be awesomesauce.

  3. On the way over to Cari's...thanks :0)
