A Request for Help from Kristi

One of our own is asking for help.

I'm sure everyone who reads this know who Kristi is - the Book Blogging Queen that runs The Story Siren. I don't know about anyone else, but I am in complete awe of Kristi and her wonderful blog. She goes out of her way to help fellow book bloggers, what with her Dear Story Siren and her specific blog helping posts. She's also really awesome at answering emails requesting advice - when I first started blogging, she was key to helping me get the ball rolling.

a little angel named Kaylea

But now Kristi is asking us for help. Her six-year-old cousin, Kaylea, who loves to read, has being diagnosed with leukemia. This is a terrible blow for the whole family, including Kristi. Kristi is asking if we can help out, whether it be cards of well wishes to make Kaylea smile, donated books for Kaylea to read, or for monetary donations to help with medical costs - but only if you can. For more information about Kaylea's condition and how you can help, read Kristi's post about it here.
I know being a UK blogger, most of my regular readers are UK bloggers too, and this may cause some issues in helping out, but I felt I had to mention it on the off chance any of you can help in some way. It's not often that a blogger will ask for such help, but we as a community are so strong, I'm sure we'll rally together to do what we can.

Thank you for reading.


  1. Awesome post!
    I definitely agree, Kristi is the one who inspired me to start blogging, and even though I'm a bit of a newbie, she keeps me going, and also I think shows all bloggers how to do it, and that they started blogging for a sole reason-because they love books.
    I live in Canada and don't have a credit card, but hopefully I can mail a book to Kaylea or something!
    And I think if we all come together, we can definitely help this girl out!

  2. Krisi is just one amazing woman, she inspires and helps out so many people.
    I'm going to try to donate something. Money is a little difficult for me because of my work situation, but maybe some books, at least a card. I'm going to try and see if I can manage something. Just to put a smile on that beautiful girl's face.
