What's Up With The Heart Twitter Avatars?

If you’re on Twitter all the time like me, you may have noticed a bunch of celebrities have changed their Twitter avatars to pictures of hands making heart shapes.

“Why is this?” I asked myself. Well today  I found out the terribly sad backstory behind these new icons.

The avatars are encouraging people to donate money to the orphaned children of the Berry family. The three kids lost their parents in a horrific car crash in Texas. The family’s two young boys are paralyzed, and the young daughter was also injured in the crash. Celebrities like Britney Spears, Khloe Kardashian, Justin Bieber, and Usher are all helping to raise money for the medical and psychological care these kids will need (for the rest of their lives) for their traumatic injuries (both physical and I’m sure mental too). Here’s the story if you want more info. If this story breaks your heart like it does mine, here’s what you can do to help: go to this website and you can text in to donate $10 to help with the kids’ medical care.

I’m sending lots of love and prayers to these kids. If you can afford the donation, please do so!


Thanks, guys!
