Dads Who are There #theother364 – Caring Bridge – #MC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for CaringBridge. I received product a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I have the privilege to know some incredible dads.  Of course I’m a bit biased to say that my own husband is one, but this year there is another one that stands out in my mind. 

Folks we know back in South Dakota.  A wonderful family with five boys.  Mom was feeling a bit run down earlier this year, had a cough and was lethargic, so she went to the doctor.  The family was given the devastating news that she had cancer.  In four short weeks she was taken home to be with her Lord.  And through it all, Dad, he was just there doing what he did #theother364, helping Mom to care for their five boys.  Now he’s doing it solo.

When you’re away from the people who matter to you and they are going through difficult physical and medical circumstances, CaringBridge can really help you feel connected.  As Christians it gives us specific things to pray for when the family updates their journal.

In anticipation of Father’s Day, CaringBridge created #theother364 campaign and needs your help!

They want help catching dads in action—not just on Father’s Day, but #theother364 days a year too—whether making dinner, reading books, playing soccer, having tea parties, or otherwise being great dads.  Here’s how you can help:

  • Take a quick (under 30 seconds) video of Dad doing an act your family appreciates
  • Submit your video here by May 29th, 2014
  • CaringBridge will select their favorites, and edit them together into a Father’s Day tribute to Dads — celebrating them on #TheOther364 days of the year in their announcement of the final video.

What would you video the Dads in your life doing?

  1. Oh no, that is so sad. My husband is a great father. He plays with our children and encourages them to be the best they can be while supporting them in every way he can.
