A Pledge for Help - And a Vacation


Hope you folks are having a great weekend! I'm typing this up as I leave for a long-awaited vacation in a couple of hours, but I needed to inform you about 2 things before I leave!

The first is a pledge for help, where I request you to be generous and donate for a life of a young mother Lakshmi, who needs to be operated within 5-6 months. She is currently prescribed heavy dosage of medicines to sustain. Lakshmi is 28 years old and suffers from Coronary Artery disease. She has two children, aged 3 & 6. She is financially dependent on her parents who have already spent whatever they have, for her first operation and their other daughter's marriages. Srivalli has organized a Fundraiser with Raffle Prizes so we can help raise money for Lakshmi's operation. I request you to contribute in any way that you can! You can donate via Paypal using the Chip-In button on her blog. I appreciate your support and prayers!

Vacation
And now for the good part - I'm heading off for a vacation to Europe with my hubby, my brother and his wife, and we are going to be enjoying the heritage of Rome & Venice, strutting in the fashion-filled streets of Paris, and relaxing in the beautiful countryside of Switzerland, then finally heading off to India to spend some time with our parents! I am totally excited, and I'll be sure to keep you updated as and when I get time to hook on to the internet!

Meanwhile, I have scheduled some recipes and posts for you all, so you don't miss your dose of Fun & Food! The activity level will be a bit low, and I might not be able to respond to comments and queries immediately, but please bear with me on that! Also, the past few days, I've been working on another project, so I have a Surprise to share with you all when I get back!

So keep visiting Fun & Food, Miss me, and stay healthy and happy!

Signing off for now, but will be back soon! Starting Monday, look out for posts that I've scheduled for the next 2 weeks!

28 is extremely young for a person to have coronary artery disease. Either this woman is living a very unhealthy lifestyle (overweight, smoker, fatty food diet etc) or this is a scam.

I'll check out the blog.

Have a great trip and I'll try not to hate you. I'll just envy the heck out of you. ;-)

Have a wonderful vacation, I just got back from mine :) As for the anonymous posts about your selfishness, someone is very jealous! I contributed some amount already for this worthy cause and I am sure you have too. The other comment about 28 yrs being too young to have heart disease, someone is totally ignorant! There are young people in 20s these days getting heart disease, cancer etc for no fault of their own (ie. life style etc). So instead of judging someone in need, one should either help or keep silent!
