Little Parker is in the hospital again. Will you help us show him some love?

by Susan

Have you met Parker?

He is the precious and medically fragile 4 year old boy whose smile blesses our 5 Minutes for Special Needs home page.

Parker’s list of medical challenges seems endless, as do his list of medical bills. (His parents have insurance, but that only covers some of the costs.)

And again Parker is in the hospital.

So often we read about children like Parker and think we wish we could help. But this time we can help in a simple way.

We’ve created a games page where the advertising revenue earned while the games are being played will go to Parker. It’s not much… but every penny counts, right?

If you can post this button on your blog and spread the word, we can all show Parker some love.

And whenever you need a little break, play a few little games here.

Thank you so much Susan and Janice. We simply can’t thank you enough for all of the love and support you show Parker.

This has been a really rough hospital stay. But your love has made our hearts sing.

I just wrote a post called “giving to others” where I referenced this post to my fellow readers along with a couple other ways bloggers can give, so I wanted to let you know I am helping to spread the word not only by having parker’s button on my blog but by reminding my fellow readers about Parker.

Here is the link if you wish to read today’s post:
