Reversing Karma

posted by Momo Fali on June 23, 2010

This is me and my friend, Piper. She may very well be the sweetest person I have ever known.

There is no doubt that Piper would do anything for me, despite the fact that she lives half a country away. I know I could count on her. Especially if I was hurting.

Things haven’t been so great for Piper lately. She is a single mom of two boys who thought she had met the man of her dreams. It turns out, it ended more like a nightmare. However, even a devastating blow didn’t stop her from going back to school. The day she swung that backpack over her shoulder and went to class, I could have cried with pride.

But, then her car blew up. Well, it didn’t blow up, but it did catch on fire. Same difference. And, all Piper could do was talk about keeping her faith and trusting that God would take care of everything.

Dear God, I hope you don’t mind, but I would like to help.

I am not alone. All of these great people on this crazy internet went and decided it was time to do something. Piper is an inspiration in more ways than one and we want to pay her back. It’s time for her to have some good in her life.

Here’s the plan. From Tuesday, June 22nd, until Wednesday, June 30th at midnight EST, we’re holding a giveaway, the proceeds of which go completely to Piper to help with her car and her return to school.

    It's impossible for me to convey how much I love you, Momo. So, I'm really glad you know that I do.

    Thank you for this, thank you for all of your love. This means more to me than you will ever know.

    (((big hugs)))

    Right on, buying tickets for sure…and if I win the iPod that will be my present to Piper!

    So strange, I followed her a ways back, and just the other day popped in to see how it was going over there.
