So, I’ll probably just refer to this winter/spring in future years as the spring of the sick, I can’t believe how much we’ve been sick, and it just lingers around and passes from person to person, dear lord, it is exhausting! This is why I’m hiding from the universe and leaving poor bloggy so blank.
But I had to find a minute to take the time to post about my yearly March for Babies fundraiser for the March of Dimes. I wanted to make sure that readers and friends can have an opportunity to be involved. Last year I was able to pass my huge goals, and you can read that post to hear more about how much I love the March of Dimes and why it is personal to me… I also just want to say here that my heart is heavy when I think about the angels babies that have been taken all too soon from some wonderful parents I know and love. It is for those precious families that I go out and walk this walk, and I remember and carry those children and families in my heart daily.
So now it is time to do my part once again. We walk THIS SATURDAY, so we have less than a week to make a difference. Here is a quote from the March of Dimes about what your donation goes toward:
Your gift will support March of Dimes research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. And it will be used to bring comfort and information to families with a baby in newborn intensive care.
I know this year things are tight for many of us and that we are all feeling the weight of the economy on our shoulders so in no way would I want to guilt anyone, but if anyone of you has it in your heart every dollar counts.
In addition, to thank anyone who does want to give, I put together a kit as a free gift for all my sponsors:
if you are a digi-scrapper, you can just look at is as buying a kit and donate 5. 6, 7 dollars, really what ever anyone feels comfortable with if you have it in your heart to give, I appreciate it so much.
Also, if this kit isn’t really floating your boat, I’m also putting everyone’s name in for a drawing for a $25 gift card to my Shoppe! Just a few ways to get back, if you give a bit back to make a difference in the lives of so many babies and families.
Visit my Sponsor page at the March of Dimes website, it’s easy and secure – just click through to make your donation, this year you can make your donation via pay pal in addition to credit/debit or cash or check. Please be sure to leave your name and email address for me so that I can send you your thank you gift!

Thank you so much!
