March of Dimes WalkAmerica was recently selected as the first recipient of our Crafting for a Cure fundraising efforts! 2 of our founding mommies, Gina and Doulla, have been active participants in the WalkAmerica events for the past 3 years. Being mommies of amazingly resilient, prematurely born baby boys, they know firsthand how much of an impact the ongoing research and dedicated support the March of Dimes can have on families dealing with neonatal issues. Their babies benefitted greatly from numerous medical advances made possible by MOD research. It is a true honor to be able to give something back to such a fantastic organization who gave us so much!
Welcome Crafters! March 4, 2007
Welcome to our little crafty blog! We hope you find lots of inspiration here, and that you join us as we journey into the world of fundraising for some of the causes that are most near and dear to our hearts. We are a group of mommies on a mission to raise awareness and fundage for several charities that will always be a constant source of information and support in our lives. We are each deeply affected and touched by the research conducted, and the support given to us by the March of Dimes, Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Cure Autism Now, and the Autism Society of America. We feel greatly compelled to give something back, and hopefully make an ounce of difference in their continued efforts to support those very special individuals who are so very dependent upon their efforts.
Stay tuned for more information regarding our 1st Crafting for a Cure Event being held on May 12th, with all proceeds going to the fine folks at the March of Dimes. Registration information will be available later this week!
