Change it up….everywhere!
A friend of mine, who lives in another part of the country said there wasn’t anything she could help contribute, but asked if she could help the kids and I in our fundraising efforts some other way. After thinking about it, its totally possible!!!!!
So, if you’re wanting to help with our fundraising efforts – maybe you’re unable to give yourself but you want to help in some way, this post is for YOU!
Word of mouth is HUGE: Tell people about this amazing boy you know or have heard about. And that it’s not JUST Ryan who has a Chromosome 18 Abnormality! There are LOTS of kiddos and adults who have a Ch18 abnormality. Share this blog, or one of the posts on our fundraising efforts on your Facebook page. Word of mouth is the BEST advertising. The more that know about Chromosome 18, the sooner we’ll have more information to help other families, and mine, about Chromosome 18 and all that it entails. THANK YOU!
Pray: Continue to keep my family and I in your thoughts and prayers. Any and all are so appreciative! I truly believe in the power of prayer… THANK YOU!
