The Union Gospel Mission – the lifeline to basic necessities for thousands of men, women and children – has held a special place in my heart since our wedding day when  Mom and my brother Kevin dropped off much of the remaining food at the Mission in downtown Vancouver. Being able to share our special day with those less fortunate than us made our day that much more meaningful. Ever since, I have given to the Union Gospel Mission whenever I can.

Last December, I put together “The Best of…The Left Thumb Blogger: Volume I” ebook. With each sale, another person in desperate need received a warm Christmas dinner. Thanks to my generous readers, 100 people enjoyed a meal on Christmas! Thank you.

I would like to do the same thing this year. However, “The Best of…The Left Thumb Blogger: Volume II” is the Readers’ Choice Edition! You, the reader, decide which posts are to be included in the ebook. Here’s how it works:

  • Leave the title of your favourite Do It Myself Blog post in a comment below.
  • For now, one post per reader, please. This may change, depending on the response.
  • Each reader to choose a post will be profiled in the ebook.
  • If more than one reader chooses the same post, the first reader to leave a comment will be profiled.
  • Ideally, the ebook will include 12-15 posts.
  • Please choose your favourite post by Thursday, November 26th, 2009.

Is there anything I missed? Do you have any questions? Let me know.

Together, let’s feed 100 people Christmas dinner again!

Thank you.

If you enjoyed this post, consider buying me a chai tea latte. Thanks kindly.

“Dreams Do Come True, With A Little Help of Friends”

This was so neat, I read it several times, plus Damiens account of it. The look on Darrell’s face was one of pure joy.

Hi Glenda,

Great idea! I loved “5 Lessons in Embracing Life to Its Fullest” as it is universal!

The post you wrote about your favorite Premmie moved me to tears. Most of us don’t even have a clue to the wonderful human being inside of each other — I love the things you say. How you can bring me to my knees. Thank you thank you.

I’m partial to “My Response to Nurse Ratchet” and always thought it would’ve been a great letter to the editor too and have passed it on.
