In times of need, our online friends are just as important as anyone else. Like recently with me being sick, everyone came to my blog and commented with well wishes. It really helped me, knowing that I had a lot of people who care. When your online friends need something, make an effort to show them you're there.
Now, what really made me think of this word is this:
I don't know Joshua's dad and I don't know Joshua, but I do feel the need to Unite for him. With just over a month left and almost $3300 left until the goal is met-I knew this was the best post I could do for U.
It's been a few months since I learned of Joshua's fight against cancer and I've been supporting this cause ever since. Joshua is a 21 year old young man who was diagnosed with Leukemia. His father is an author by the name of Maxwell Cynn. You can read the post about Joshua's diagnosis here.
There are also videos about this cause and announcements/updates here. The hashtag for talking about this cause online is #IndiesUnite4Joshua
I know my posts keep being a bit serious lately, but there are things that keep happening or coming into my mind that just happen to be a little serious. I've wanted to use this cause as a topic for a post for a while, and now I have.
Unite for Joshua...Unite period. Take time to be there for your online friends. Many of the supporters for Joshua's campaign are online friends that his dad Maxwell met over the years of blogging and taking part in online writer groups and whatnot. Some are just Twitter friends. Some are online friends of other online friends. The point is, you never know when you will need your online friends-they're important, so show them that you know that they are. And be there for them when they need it. If you haven't heard about Joshua and his fight, please take a moment to visit the site and read more about Joshua and his fight.
Happy Uniting :)
