Each of the websites I have chosen are due to an event or circumstance in my life. My mother was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s at the age of 52, she is gone now so I want to begin the year with that. With Mother’s Day in May and her birthday in September I have devoted those months to the Alzheimer’s Association as well. She was a gracious lady to the end despite the ravages of that insidious disease. I lost my stepdad to heart disease when he was 47 years old. He was a wonderful man who raised me as his own little princess. My mother and stepmother both fought and survived breast cancer, my father and uncle had lung cancer. My grandmother had Emphysema and has recently died. I have 4 healthy grandchildren and I am so grateful. My daughter has just enlisted in the US Navy. Dogs Deserve Better is wonderful organization that I have volunteered for in the past. I have 2 rescue dogs and a cat. My grandmother who recently passed away had her favorite charity so to honor her I have chosen Christian Children’s Fund.
I want to thank everyone in advance for not only supporting my endeavors and all my crazy design ideas, but the charities we will be able to help together. At the end of every month when I submit the donations I will be listing the amounts in my blog. I will also be happy to e-mail a copy of the receipt to anyone who requests it. I am very excited about it and am anxious to see how much money we can raise.
I wish you all a very healthy and happy year ahead full of love and wonder.
