The Plea on this blog

Doesn't hurt to bring "the plea" to this blog too. :)

Children’s Hospital of Seattle is ranked as one of the best children’s hospitals in the country. It serves as the pediatric referral center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho. Children’s means a lot to the families who are sent there for their child’s most critical needs. They form bonds with other families who are in the same unit and develop close relationships with the staff that serve them. Children’s is able to fulfill their mission of preventing, treating and eliminating pediatric disease through the support of the community.

I have the pleasure of being a part of that community in raising funds to help support this organization that cares for our area’s youngest who need critical care.
Would you be willing to join me? On April 17th and 18th, I will be participating in a benefit to raise money for Children’s Hospital, hosted by Treasury of Memories. This event involves each candidate to raise $100. 100% of this will go directly towards Children’s.

Most of you know that I work with children and through the years of being around these kiddos, I am a huge advocate for the health and safety of our youngest and I personally know several families who have received the excellent care that Children’s Hospital has provided! At this point in time, all I need to raise is $80. Such a small number to do such extraordinary things in the life of a child. I know times are tight right now but just think, if I got 8 people to donate $10, it’s done. We did it.

As far as the details of the benefit are concerned, 100’s of ladies will be taking 20 hours out of their weekend to “crop” for kids. Crop is simply a silly word to describe paper crafting. So not only do we get to do something that we absolutely love to do, we are also giving towards something GREATER. We are possibly assisting these amazing medical professionals by saving the life of a child. By providing help and support to families going through grief. Awesome.

So…. if you feel so led, please let me know if you would like to support this organization through a small donation. And there is absolutely no pressure! This is just something I am passionate about and I understand if you are helping with something else that you are passionate about.

***Update… I just need $60! Thank you!!****
