I love when I get an opportunity to make someone feel good when they weren’t expecting it at all. That is SO FUN. It’s way more fun for me, in fact, than I think it is even for the person I’m making feel good. Case in point, you remember the story of KT the Breakfast Waiter. I mean, how fun was that, right?
Today, I got to make an unsuspecting person feel good again. And even better, I brought attention to how much of a heinous beast Ashley Judd is all at the same time. Talk about win/win!
So you know how Ashley’s been on her anti-coal-mining kick lately? And she’s been crying and carrying on at various events about it? Well, a school teacher in Kentucky named Janette Jude wrote an open letter to Ashley, which I posted at my other site (along with some a few observations of my own, natch). 😉 And people really responded to this letter, because it’s freaking AWESOME. And so I thought to myself, “Self – you need to figure out a way that Janette Jude can see this post, and all of the great comments on it, because that will make her feel good.” So I found Janette on Facebook, and sent her a message along with a link to the post. And Janette wrote back and was super happy about it, and even commented on the post herself to thank everyone for sticking up for her.
And now over 330 people have clicked the “like” button at the bottom of that post, which means it’s going up on those 330 facebook profiles, and hopefully tons more people see it than might have been otherwise possible. AND, the editor of Coal People Magazine commented that he wants to reprint her letter in their next edition, and give her a free subscription. TELL me that’s not the most awesome thing ever!!
I’m so happy for Janette Jude, even though I don’t know her, because her letter was amazing and perfect and because she’s getting lots of COTR and FB attention from it now. And I’m happy that I got to help do that.
YAY FOR JANETTE JUDE!!!
