Yesterday, limecello (a reader, a reviewer, and a wonderful part of the online romance community) posted a blog for Social Good Day. She made the following promise:
Iâ€™m poor- I have no job and have law school loans, but this is important to me. I wish I could give moreâ€¦ but hereâ€™s what Iâ€™m going to do. If 10 people comment on this post today, Iâ€™ll donate $10 to the (RED) fund. [And letâ€™s hear it for optimism, because if there are a whole slew of comments, Iâ€™ll re-assess thatÂ amount.]
After a few hours, inspired by Limecello’s positive attitude (and her drumming up comments for the post), Shiloh Walker agreed to add in $50 if she got to fifty comments. And then… it just seemed to snowball. By the end of the day, limecello had raised $1,150. Over one thousand dollars–all because she started out asking for ten comments, to pledge ten dollars.
And so if you ever have any doubt that one person can make a difference–that one little thing is never as little as it seems–and that the romance community can come together and make good things happen, just take a look at this post.
