Operation Layla

| March 11, 2011

Immediately, I realized Layla is the type of sweet, caring person everyone wants to be friends with. She’s always there to respond to your tweets, show some love for your blog posts, or provide a good laugh with one of her tweets.

When Anni (from Lincoln Park on a Lark) contacted me for help installing a PayPal donate button for “Operation Layla”, I was eager to help out.
