We can not thank you all enough for the overwhelming support!
I want to make mention of all of the creative ways that our friends and family from all over the Country are teaming together to help Lila.
$240 for Lila's stem cell treatment. Thank you Annicka... We are very lucky to have you in our lives!
The 5 photos in this post are already taken, but if you would like to order a new one, let me know. They are $15, and we do not know what you will get, as they are all different :-)
My sister is contemplating putting together a vendor fair in the Western suburbs of Chicago, or doing something with her church. Whatever it will be, Meredith, we thank you for your support!
***JKH photography is also on the road to giving! Justine is donating 75% of all of her April photography proceeds to Lila! She is offering three Saturday, 1-hour photography sessions, at three different local outdoor locations throughout the month of April, for only $75. She is taking reservations for full photography sessions throughout the month as well. Be sure to book your Spring photos now, as the sessions are filling up quickly! http://www.facebook.com/jkhphotography or http://www.justinekathrynphoto.com/
***Dani Zavadil and Maridy Carpenter have jumped on board in helping to make a few purses to raise money for Lila. This has been an unbelievable load off of my shoulders, as I was in over my head in purse making. The purses they have made so far are adorable! Be on the lookout for new purses to come :-)
***Mollie Connell is starting a magazine here in Reno called Urban Family. The first issue will come out this coming May, and each issue will feature a local family and their story. Well, Mollie has chosen us as her feature family for her first issue! Her team came over for a visit a few weeks ago, and we sure enjoyed their company. Looking forward to the Urban Family debut!!! http://www.urbanfamilymagazine.com/
***Patty Orr, a dear friend of ours is a sign language teacher and has offered to have a sign language class sometime this summer. It would be no cost to the attendees, just donation based, and fun for all of the kids!
***Kim Allcock and Kimberlee Orenstein are donating space at Yoga Loka, this coming Saturday the 5th, for us to have a family yoga day for Lila! Bring the kids and make a donation to Lila! http://www.yogalokareno.com/
***Stand Up Paddle Boards, a local company our friend Doug owns, has offered to have a raffle/auction at the annual paddle board race in Tahoe late summer. They will give away a kids paddle board with something specific to Lila on the board (her footprints, or something of the sort). FUN!
***Lastly, the Washoe County School District is donating the use of the gym at McQueen High School for our dodgeball event on March 19th (thank you Eric!). Matt thought we would maybe be able to rally 10 teams for the event, however it looks like we will have more like 15-16 teams. This will definitely be a fun event, and if you know of anyone that would like to be involved, call Matt at 287-4666.
Whew, that was long winded :-) If I missed anyone I am so sorry. I will catch you next time around, as this will not be the last thank you post I publish :-)
Thanks to you all!
