Only 9 days until our first Little Warriors event … and wouldn’t you know …. the front page of metroparent has a huge headline about volunteer projects for kids. Totally got me excited. I really pray that I”m on the right track with this idea. The more I become aware, the more places I notice these kinds of things.
I want to remind those who are interested to sign up for the event by clicking here. We’re asking for parents and kids to register to make sure we have enough materials the day of the event. Also, the Interfaith Organization sends thank you notes to their volunteers so we’d like to be able to give them your information to ensure you get the note You are the ones putting in the time and effort into these ornaments!
You can also download a copy of the flyer here: Flyer for Interfaith Organization Xmas Ornaments Event
Help us out by handing out to interested family/friends/coworkers. Perhaps you could post on a bulletin board at church or work? Your help in getting the word out is so appreciated!
If you have any questions please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Looking forward to the 19th!!!
I had a busy busy day today, but it was a lot of fun too. I helped my mom make golf ball cake pops. For those of you on Facebook, they turned out a lot better than one ones I attempted last week. Here is a pic of how they turned out.
Then this evening I had a meeting about a future endeavor of mine … The church website. I’ve gotten myself involved with the small group ministries and am working on how to get more information on the website. Anyways what started out as a bumpy meeting couldn’t have ended on a better note. I’m super excited about getting more involved. My only worry is maybe taking onto much. I honestly could be a professional volunteer …. Which sometimes drives my husband crazy.
I’ve also been working with Mandy and Patty to get ready for the Briggs and Al walk this weekend. We’ve got some awesome orange surprises up our sleeves.
In order to help me reach my goal I’ve got an owenge special going on …. If you donate $20 or more using the Donate Here button (money goes to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, where Owen was treated) I’ll send you a free beaded or silicone bracelet. After making your donation please email me your choice of bracelet and the address of where you’d like me to send your gift.
I feel moved to help because the nurses and staff helped my family so much … Through making medical decisions, late night chats and the grief process. Even the small things like tickets to the zoo for jaden or feathers to make a warrior head dress for owen. All of those little things that relieved some of the worry or made me smile … Even a little bit made all the difference in the world. They really helped us through this whole ordeal … I can’t imagine someone else going through this same thing without the same support.
The house is finally quiet and I’ve got another big day tomorrow. I suppose I should try and get so me sleep.
