First Post!

Hello all!

So I had this bright shining idea. I have been wanting to start my own non-profit, however that takes money and know how. I don't really have either. However I have some great bloggy buddies and a passion for helping people. So here is Care Across the Cities! My vision is to establish a network of bloggers with a similar purpose. This purpose is to find little ways to brighten someones day. Since I have been blogging I have come across blogs that I read everyday. Blogs that I visit on occasion and blogs that I just stumble across. Whether it is a blog that I frequent or not, if someone is going through something I always find myself wishing I could help. Cards or a little something to show I care. Thus sprung the idea for "Hometown Hearts in Bloom" which has yet to become an established non-profit, but it is what I like to spend my spare time doing. I try to bring flowers to nursing homes, hospices and hospitals for people who don't get many visitors. I don't get to do it often, but would like to get it going more regularly.

For this site however, I would like to establish a "Care Committee" of other bloggers who share this vision. We would accept e-mails for requests for people who might need a little pick me up. I can't guarantee anything elaborate, but Cards, prayers and extra cheer would be on the list of things we can offer. I would love other bloggers to join in, donate time or gifts or really anything. A blogger in every major city is my goal here people. This is something that could take 5 minutes of your day but could make someones entire day. So please, if you would like to join in, leave a comment, send a letter, use morse code (okay, dont do that one if you want a response...) Just let me know!!!

This has the potential to touch a lot of people's lives. This is just something that we can all do that makes a difference.
