My Grandmother Hazel Gene is nothing short of an inspiration. In her almost 100 years of life she has been someone who truly represents unconditional love. She is humble, loving, kind, giving, accepting and thoughtful beyond measure. A few years ago she was hospitalized for a bad back and told she would never walk again. A few months later she was walking. She never ceases to be my one true source of inspiration. If the are angels that walk on this Earth, she is one of them. Her secrets to longevity are simple: Don't worry too much, stay active, and of course, Oil of Olay.

I am her grandchild Heather, and honored to throw her a 100th year of life celebration. I'm also the last person in my family to ever step up to this task. In fact, I'm taking a 4 month leadership course just so I can make this happen for her in a way that is best for her. I know in my heart that she would love to be surrounded by family, and we are all spread out across the U.S. My goal is to have as many family members attend as possible, especially all of her children. The fund raiser is to pool together money for the small celebration itself at the church she volunteered at. It will be held over a 2 week period (as to not overwhelm her) and will have a family reunion/gathering somewhere in the middle. The fund raiser will also be to support and make money available to anyone who would not be able to come due to travel costs. Whatever is left over will be given to her to help  pay her living expenses.

Instead of surprising Grandma, my Aunt Sharon and I chose to tell her what we are planning for her. It brought her to tears of joy. I am grateful for your consideration to support bringing Hazel her family. :)
