Reaching Out To Someone In Need - Twitter
I'm collecting stories of how someone on Twitter reached out to you and touched your life in the time of great need when you were really hurting. It could have been with a card or personal note, perhaps a couple of DMs, maybe a small gift arriving in the mail, etc. - some act of kindness that really touched you and you'll always remember it.
A few days ago one of our Twitter friends contacted a few of us via email and asked if we had any stories like I just mentioned. This particular human was working on a project for her job at work and needed a story or two. Well, one by one these stories arrived by email, and the stories were each so very touching that many of us had very leaky eyes. Then someone made the comment that these stories should be turned into a book.
@FreshOtis and @MickeyShortTail's humans (both of whom have published books) volunteered to turn these stories into a book if someone would collect them. Well, here I am. I volunteered M for the job.
If you have a story and would like to share it, please email M at Ladycat3.firstname.lastname@example.org. Just name the subject line "Animal Story" so she doesn't miss it. She'll be collecting stories and will turn them over to @MickeyShortTail and @FreshOtis for final editing and making into a book.
The plan is to sell copies of the book and donate the money to an animal charity (to be determined yet).
You can help too by RTing the tweet when you see it.
If you have any questions you can contact @Mariodacat either by email or a DM on Twitter.
This is going to be so very cool.
