{ Help Save Little Ruby }

Hi TMB Followers - we are taking a break from our regular programming today to bring you a video and post about a very special little girl, Ruby Jane, daughter of one of Erin's friends, Ani Taylor.

Little Ruby joined Matt and Ani Taylor's family on January 5, 2011.  3 months later she was diagnosed with a rare liver disorder called Caroli's Disease/Syndrome.  Since that time the Taylor family has been in and out of the hospital with their little girl, and is now waiting for a liver donation to save Ruby's life. 

If you haven't guessed it already by watching The Mormon Bachelorette, we are big proponents of eternal marriage and families.  We wanted to bring Ruby's situation to light and ask for your support.  There are so many ways you can help, including:

 - Fast and pray for Ruby's recovery with us on Sunday July 24th.
 - A PayPal account has been set up in Ruby's name if you would like to donate to help the family - you can access it here.
 - Learn about becoming an organ donor at www.donateamerica.net.
 - Forward this post to your friends and family and spread the word about Ruby - there is strength in numbers!  Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, your blog, whatever!

To stay up to date on Ruby's progress you can follow Ani and Matt's blog - www.aniandmatttaylor.blogspot.com

- Erin, Aubrey and Tristen

Thank you for posting this! I lost my baby boy in May, and I want to make a donation in his honor. I will go do that. I'll join in fasting and praying for sweet little Ruby, too.

I just signed up to be a donor...I've been wanting to do that for a while. After meeting sweet baby Ruby I knew it was important to stop procrastinating! xoxo-T
