March of Dimes March for Babies
Posted by thedarwinexception on February 4, 2008
So you remember Val, right? She was one of the girls who went into Zombie Lady’s house with me and took pictures. She is also one of the very few young mothers in Malone who I respect – she has THE most gorgeous little boy in the world, and she takes really, really good care of him. She works 87 jobs, she has a house, and she does domestic things like make pickles and cookies and brownies – which she always brings to me. (Her brownies are the best in the world, btw).
Well, since Val has so much FREE TIME, she also does things in the community. She sent me an email recently about her latest venture. She’s walking in the March of Dimes “March For Babies”, and she wants our support.
I think it’s a great cause, and I think *VAL* is a great cause, and I think the people that she is walking in memory of are wonderful and have faced way too much tragedy in losing their little girls, so I am going to reprint her email here and hope that everyone will give at least a small donation.
Hello. I am participating in March for Babies because I believe in the March of Dimes mission to save babies. I am walking for team Caileigh/Rylee. This team was formed in the memory of our friends twin angels Caileigh Laura & Rylee Ann. Born too soon at 25 weeks. They spent 2 days in the NICU before they were given their wings to return to God.Please support my fundraising efforts by sponsoring me in March for Babies today.Contributing to my march online is fast, easy and secure.
