It's time again for the Perfect Post Awards!
For those of you who missed the Perfect Post Awards last month, this is what they are all about: MommaK at Petroville and Lucinda wanted to give a little recognition to bloggers out there who've written something extra special during the month of April. With that in mind, they launched the Perfect Post Awards.
On the first day of each month, all participants will give out the award to their favorite post written by another blogger during the preceding month. The "winners" will receive a cool Perfect Post button for that month, which they can put on their sites if they wish. MommaK and Lucinda will link on each award day to everyone who's giving out a Perfect Post award.
This is a chance to read some of the best posts written each month- and to spread a little warm fuzziness, too. If you'd like to present an award yourself next month, e-mail Lucinda or MommaK and they'll send you the latest award button code a few days before June 1st, so that you can participate in next month's awards!
And now without further adieu, my Perfect Post Award goes to....
NYC Watchdog at A Pile of Dogbones for his post, "My One Reason"
NYC Watchdog is an paramedic living in New York City. This post is about the son of a fellow paramedic NYC Watchdog met while on a Hurricane Relief Mission last year. The paramedic's son, Liam, suffers from a rare blood disorder. After six months with a disease that usually runs its course in one-two months, Liam is now transfusion dependent in his battle against anemia. The story is heartbreaking, but it's also an inspiration to give blood. So many people depend on blood donors just for daily survival. It is incumbent on all of us who can, to give blood as often as possible. Donating blood truly is giving the gift of life. NYC Watchdog's heart is clearly in the right place, and this post of his moved me beyond words.
Please stop by and comment "My One Reason" if you get a chance and remember to e-mail Lucinda if you'd like to give out a Perfect Post Award next month. The more the merrier!
