Would you consider donating to a great cause?

This weekend is a Radio-a-thon put on by a local radio station MIX 106.5 This is the 20th year they have raised money for Johns Hopkins Childrens Center. They have raised millions for this amazing hospital, right in Baltimore. Hopkins happens to be close to our hearts as well because Moses was treated there as well as my niece Chloe after her accident nearly 3 summers ago. Both of our kids have received amazing care at this wonderful hospital -- many children from all over the world have received treatment here too.

Would you consider joining me in donating to this great place? My school is again this year raising money for the kids at Hopkins. Over the past 2 weeks they have raised over $300 and we are going for one more week. This money goes directly to the kids and their needs -- toys for their play room, DVD's, music, books puzzles -- it also goes for the parents who have to spend time with their children in the hospital. They use the money to buy sleep chairs for the parents so they are able to stay in the room with their kids. Trust me (or my mom and sister), sleeping on the waiting room chairs or the "bed-chairs" they have is not the best nights sleep you can have. The money raised is also used for special NICU incubators or ECMO machines for the kids there.

Bottom line -- the money goes for great things when it comes to these kids. The radioathon is done tomorrow, Sunday the 1st of March. If you have a chance, please call in and give something to the kids - anything, no matter how small, gets put towards making their stay a more pleasant one.

Call 1-800-823-1065 or visit Hopkins Childrens Center to make an online donation

The kids and I thank you!
