  1. Thanks so much for this. I’ve been nominated once before but the comment was sent to spam and I missed it. Your timing was amazing. Sometimes, it the smallest things that mean the most. With just this post, it sounds silly, but you made me feel like my voice matters; like just maybe, I’m making a difference! Well, you made a difference tonight. Thank you. I’ll be responding tomorrow. I tend to be long-winded! If I had one wish, it would be to see love and compassion go viral this year! I’d love for you to join me. I monitor the hashtag #LoveChangesPeople on Twitter. So does my whole team! We’re on Facebook, too, and we’re sending a loud message this week for #NoMore week:

    #NOMORE hopeless children. #KidsMatterOK! We can do more!

    I’m not sure how you take compassion viral. But I had to start somewhere. Your blog tells me you’d make a fine soldier in the army of compassion for children. ♥

  2. Erica, I’m flattered to be nominated but Notes from the U.K. is an award-free zone–something I haven’t posted prominently because of my near-total technical incompetence, but I will figure out a way to do that. Honest.

  3. Have you ever considered creating an e-book or guest authoring
    on other blogs? I have a blog centered on the same information you
    discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my viewers
    would enjoy your work. If you’re even remotely interested,
    feel free to send me an email.
