To both of my daughters’ delight, I have turned my blog purple for Maddie, and all seven of our family members will be wearing purple tomorrow.

3 Lesha April 9, 2009 at 2:50 pm

I actually went through my closet and drawers last night and was shocked to find I own nothing purple anymore! So while I’m not wearing anything purple yet, I do plan to have some purple to wear by the 14th for Maddie.

11 Al_Pal April 9, 2009 at 5:15 pm

With Mrs. Flinger’s help, I finally got the background purple! I had managed the text on my own, but the sneaky theme I was using had perplexed me. 😛

Community is so wonderful. ♥

Thanks for getting this started!

I went purple on my twitter and blog. My blog is still green, technically, but all the links to donate are there. When I alter the heading it goes nuts. I used lunapic.com to turn my twitter green.

I’ve been wearing my purple scarf & will be finding something more purple to add to an outfit for Tuesday.


43 Christy April 12, 2009 at 8:46 pm

What a terrific thing you’ve done to rally everyone to show their love and support for Heather & Mike…the Internet has been a beautiful place this last week. I hope the Sporhs are able to feel it, even if only a little bit through their pain.


44 Christy April 12, 2009 at 8:52 pm

Okay, I totally did the link thing wrong & linked my blog on the Twitter link, so I had to fix it (that’s why I’m on there 2ce–sorry!) Both blog & Twitter are purple in honor of Maddie. 🙂


45 Abby April 13, 2009 at 10:28 am

I’m lame and linked wrong.

Thank you so much for doing this. I love all the support sweet Heather and Mike are getting :]


46 Andrea's Sweet Life April 13, 2009 at 12:21 pm

It took all the technical know-how I could muster, AND I could only figure out how to change the words to purple – but I DID IT! I’m all purple for Maddie, in blog and in spirit.

I just happened to already be wearing a purple top today! (I love purple!) My blog already has quite a bit of purple in it. I did change my twitter page and picture purple for Maddie. Thank you for doing this. I’d like to show my support in some way!

Couldn’t change the font colors, because I’m on a free Wordpress blog, so I changed my banner.


58 Samantha Gianulis April 16, 2009 at 12:39 pm

In the past week, purple has randomly and intentionally popped up everywhere. From headbands to crayon color selection, or just a color in the sky come night time, Maddie is everywhere.
