Talk to enough of my friends, and you’ll eventually hear dubious claims that I was born with a horseshoe lodged into my posterior.

Sure, I may win a few things. Okay, some kind of major. And sometimes, I’m just lucky enough to see a tweet advertising a contest ending in a few hours for a Cards Against Humanity expansion for House of Cards.

But winning’s not everything — there’s an entire world out there, and being aware of what’s going on is just as important of trying to run your own life. Today was  Pink Shirt Day, a day dedicated to the fight against bullying, and my fellow bloggers at PTPA were all about dressing in pink to show our support!

But bullying comes in many forms, and in the fight to help a blogger win against a former employer who’s really making her life hell, some friends have started a Bloggers 4 Bloggers initiative to help her through her legal woes. For $25, you get:

So if you want to help someone out and get your hands on some cool stuff for a sweet price, definitely check it out!

  1. Hey Case,

    Glad you got in on the Pink Shirt day! It’s a great cause! Also, very stylish.
    LOVE the House of Cards expansion pack…. I think I may have got my hands on a box. They were giving them away… I hope I got my name in on time.

    Now, The blogger thing… I would like to know more before I consider donating. What are her legal woes. Why is she being sued? Are we sure she didn’t spout off on the internet and get caught?

    I don’t know Katie, I hope that I’m wrong but, I’m not seeing anything online about it and I sure do like to know what’s going on if I’m ever going to donate. Let me know if you have any background info.

    Always great stopping in.

    1. Yeah, Christine, I’d mentioned it to the mutual friends she and I has that we’d need more information, but all I’m privy to share right now is that she’s on the end of some hate from a vindictive boss who’s essentially slandering her name. I don’t know how much more I’m able to share, but I’ve asked one I know to come speak on it to try and clear the air.

      (Either way, they’re getting my $25, though. There’s some stuff I could use!)

      I’ve been debating on adding a fashion component to the blog, since so many friends keep commenting on it — I still need a title, though; I only have a tagline so far:

      “Keep it stylish, even when you’re not childless.”

      So wait. These Cards Against Humanity x House of Cards kits… were free? They’re selling for like, $100 on eBay!

  2. Fashion:
    I agree you should have a fashion component. It fits… It’s kind of who you are… and frankly who better?
    Also I may be working with a new men’s wear client. Still working on it.
    I hate to sound like I’m not trusting people, but from my end I see no additional info, a locked twitter account and an ask for money… meaning (at least in my head, that she\’s being sued or her case doesn’t have merit and she is being asked to pay upfront or something strange), Sketchy at best…
    House of Cards Against Humanity:
    Your blog won’t let me post the link in the comments so I’ll FB it to you.
    They are sold out now. I haven’t seen mine in the mail yet… I wonder…


    1. Fashion: Keep me in the loop!

      Blogger: I’ll do a follow-up 🙂 I trust the guy who trusts Katie, so we’ll have to see how to sort this out.

      House of Cards Against Humanity: It… won’t let you post a link? I need to take a look at those CommentLuv settings apparently!

    2. Christine,

      I can see how an outsider may see the situation as being sketchy, but as someone who knows Katie I can absolutely vouch for her. She has had a rough life and she never, ever asked for us to do anything to help her. She was simply venting privately to some blogger friends about how she was going to find the cash to fight her previous employer and they listened & wanted to help. We’re just trying to create a community where we can open ourselves up, be honest, and trust that other people are listening and have our backs. Personally, I’m offering $40 worth of design because I believe in Katie and I want to give her her best shot.

      This lady is a stand up gal. Because they are legal troubles, I hope you can imagine why she does not want to completely open up about it on the internet, and I hope you can also see why she would make her twitter account private.

      The bottom line is that these products have been donated, meaning you’d be spending a BUNCH more money on them if you actually wanted to purchase them. So the money would be going into someone’s pocket and I don’t think you’d be questioning what they were spending it on. At least, in this case, you’re spending a ton less money (like hundreds of dollars) on a great set of products that, at worst, you’re hoping someone named Katie is going to use for good.

      If you are interested in the products, you can’t go wrong with this purchase. If you’re not but you are unsure about donating, Katie won’t blame you. She’s kind of amazing like that.

      1. Hey Jenn,

        Thanks for the update. I guess I am just one of those people. I hope you don’t think I’m an ass, I’ve just been on the interwebz for a while, and it may have jaded me.

        I totally appreciate that you believe in this cause and are putting up a donation of your own product to help. That is truly amazing of you.

        I may need to think on this further. Thanks again for taking the time out of your day to comment!
