Caring Bridge - Share Your Heart

If you have been around here for some time, you might recall me mentioning a friends child, Ward
Thanks to Caring Bridge, I was able to stay up to date on all that was going on with him...
He is healthy and doing great now, this was 2 years ago and a very scary time....

That being said, when I received an email, I wanted to share it with you:

The email:

Let’s Share the Love! CaringBridge Launches “Share Your Heart” Contest
People invited to submit acts of kindness for chance to win two iPad Minis
EAGAN, Minn. (Feb. 12, 2013) –Whether it’s a heartfelt note before your first day at a new job or a declaration of love written in the clouds, people express their love and support for one another in big and small ways every day. This February, CaringBridge, the caring social network that keeps families and loved ones connected during any type of health event, invites people to submit those touching acts of compassion during the “Share Your Heart” contest.
“CaringBridge grew out of the need and desire to amplify the love, hope and compassion in the world,” said Sona Mehring, founder and CEO of CaringBridge. “We’re excited to offer the Share Your Heart contest to bring to life the great examples of our mission in action.”
It's easy to enter the “Share Your Heart” contest. Simply visit to upload a photo, video or a written description of up to 50 words of how you share your heart with those you love and support.  
Any act of caring big or small is welcome. It could be a video hug for a sweetie, a photo of the flowers you gave to the neighbor, plastering someone’s room with cutout hearts or any other way to spread love in the world.
During the contest, visitors to can vote on their favorite entry. People can also share their submissions with family and friends inviting them to vote. The entry with the most votes wins two iPad minis—helping the winner stay connected with their loved one online.
Additionally, everyone who shares their heart on will be entered in a random drawing to win one of 10 gift certificates from Pear Tree Greetings, an online greeting card company that helps people celebrate life’s sharable moments.
The contest opens February 11. People can submit their acts of love and caring by March 1 and voting will be open through March 6.
You can share your heart every day on, the nonprofit caring social network that helps you amplify love, hope and compassion by providing a private place for you to share your health journey and receive support from those you love.

I just wanted to share this with you.  No compensation was received for this post.  Just thankful for Caring Bridge.


  1. Passing on the caring to each other is wonderful! Sweet of you to post about it. :)

  2. That sounds like fun! Emerson is on Caring Bridge.

    Isaak just got a sheet from preschool to do 20 acts of kindness this month. I was kind of shocked that they want 20. It seemed like a lot for a preschooler. So far we have 10, so maybe we can do it.

  3. I'm headed over to take a look. :)

  4. This is a very good place for families to stay involved with the care of a loved one.

  5. Thanks for spreading the word about CaringBridge and our Share Your Heart contest! I'm so glad it helped keep you updated anout your friend's child.
