Fundraiser Announcement

Those who have been following the blog with regularity know that we didn't do much in the way of celebrating Leah's birthday last year.  

Sure, I made her a cake, and at the exact moment she had been born I kissed her teddy bear urn; but we didn't do anything that everyone could participate in to help celebrate Leah's short life, while continuing to support the EB cause.

So for Leah's next birthday (2-10-11), I'm planning big and planning early.  Tomorrow (the 25th) begins Epidermolysis Bullosa Awareness Week, and with the holidays just around the corner, full acknowledgment that December is going to be really hard for us - I'm announcing it now to give everyone ample time to participate and (hopefully) spread the word.  

From now until Leah's birthday I am selling these little puppies in exchange for a $6 donation (just click on the PayPal 'Donate' button on the sidebar):




What you're seeing is a piece of paper with flower seeds embedded into it that I have cut out into the shape of a butterfly.  They come on a cute little keepsake card with instructions for the paper.  

The idea is to have everyone plant these (per your regions seed planting schedule) and have little patches of flowers for Leah all over the country (dare I say: world?).





The color of the seed paper will vary, as I have a couple different shades of pink and purple that I'm working with. 




And with the sales - I will donate the money to dEBra to commemorate Leah's 2nd Birthday.

I hope to continue with these birthday fundraisers in the future; with more creative and innovative ideas, so I'm really hoping this first one goes well!
