Hello!As many of my close friends and family know, every year for the past four years Chris and I have held our annual Thanks-For-Giving party in November. Each year we picked a local cause and invited our friends and family to come for dinner and we've asked them to bring either food or a monetary contribution to be donated to the charity for that year. Thankfully the event has gotten bigger and bigger each year and we are hoping that this year will be the biggest yet. We have decided to split the proceeds between two people. The first is an absolutely amazing young woman battling a rare blood disease that brings with it the possibilty of stroke or the development of leukemia. She has been hospitalized several times within th epast few months. The second is a woman who gave birth to a beautiful baby boy only to find out he has severe physical and mental handicaps, sadly just two weeks after giving birth her husband was hit head on non-attentive driver, he suffered severe brain injury and he along with her son will forever need a wheelchair and around the clock care. They are in desperate need of a new handicap vehicle to make life a little more manageable. I know in the past several people have expressed a desire to help but having lived far away or other obligations prevented them from doing so, so hopefully with this fundraiser everyone has the option to help out! Thankyou so much for considering it! A portion of the money raised from this site will go to hosting the event as we believe there may be as many as 200 ppl this year and the remainder goes directly to the two women mentioned above.
