We are each of us angels with only one wing, and we can only fly by embracing one another. ~ Luciano de Crescenzo
Six Degrees of Separation is based on the premise that we are all six steps away from any other person on Earth, so that a chain of “a friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in six steps or fewer. Today we have the opportunity to see this theory in action.
There is a woman, Valorie, who has a blog.
I had never heard of her, nor her blog.
However, through blogging I have come to know this woman, Laura.
Laura and Valorie became friends via the Internet and eventually met.
I have learned through Laura that Valorie’s husband, Alberto, had a major heart attack in an airport in Calgary while they were on their way to teach a tango workshop. He wants to be treated by his own doctor in his own community hospital in New Orleans. The Medivac expense is more than she can manage on her own.
My friend is holding an auction linky party to raise funds to assist.
Won’t you lend a hand from wherever you may be seated to help Alberto off his back and onto his happy dancing feet? Please visit her blog to view all the lovely items up for auction and place your bids.
