A few of my recent posts have been kind of depressing, so I thought I'd chipper things up a bit.
Jeff and I are excited to be donating a 6'6" tree to theFestival of Trees. This is an annual fundraiser for Primary Children's Medical Centerwhere Bridgette had both her surgeries. Last year, the event raised $1,495,840.74. Every penny of that money went directly to families that needed assistance, not to administrative costs. It's a SUPER COOL community-driven event.
And now the zinger! We're hoping you all want to help!
We're calling our entry The "B" Tree in honor of B aby B ridgette and her surgeon, Dr. B lack. We're decorating the tree in "B" words (bells, bows, birds, berries) and trying to fill the space below with "B" toys (bears, board games, baby dolls, etc.)
We could use help raising funds, with toy donations, and with physical labor. I know this phrase is overused, but every little bit really does help!
You can find more info on a really nifty website I made all by myself yesterday:The "B" Tree.
We set up the tree November 30. The silent auction is December 1. Public viewing is December 2-5.
I know that seems so far away, but as the primary organizer of The "B" Tree effort... I'm sort of freaking out about how soon it is.
