Indiana State Fair: Prayers for Indy Donations + Giveaway

Like so many of you, I sat on my couch staring in shock at the television as I watched the news stations replay the Indiana State Fair concert stage collapse over and over.   I listened with a heavy heart as they announced those who lost their lives, the children who were nearby, and the families involved.   I prayed for them.   For all of them.

I think at a time like this, honesty is the best policy.   Indiana Family of Farmers, who is obviously a big presence at the Indiana State Fair, offered my family a wonderful opportunity to go behind scenes, pet the pigs, enjoy fresh milk at the Dairy Barn, learn about sheep, meet the Indiana State Fair Princess, and so much more.   It was an absolute blast and we appreciate it so much!

They also offered you, my wonderful readers, another chance to win tickets to the Indiana State Fair.   At first, I wondered if now was the best time.   But, after sad events is always the perfect time for a little fun.   Especially when we could all use it so badly.

Pray for Indy!

Please keep praying for the families involved and and the families who lost love ones.   Pray hard.

Give Back!

As you may know, I donate all funds collected through sales of All You Magazine to local community organizations.   This month, those funds will be going to the Indiana State Fair Commission and Central Indiana Community Foundation to support the Indiana State Fair victims.

How to Enter

I’m skipping all the bonus entries and requirements.   Instead, I’m asking that you show your support for another the resident or residents of Indianapolis in any way you can.   Smile at a stranger, say a prayer, help your neighbor carry in her groceries, pick up some trash at the park, donate to the   Indiana State Fair Commission and Central Indiana Community Foundation, tweet your support out to the masses.   There are endless ways to show support for your neighbors.

I’m not going to ask what you did.   To enter, simply leave me a comment and tell me that you showed your support.   You can enter as many times as you’d like.   There’s no limit on how many times or ways you can show your support.   So, every time you do something kind for another Indianapolis resident, come back here and enter again.
