First, that is absolutely amazing. I am so thankful for each donation and for such an outpouring show of support for Beatrice Kate and preemies like her!
Secondly, $1800? Holy Cow! Bea Team members are here being heard, loud and proud. I am honored to be the Team Captain of such a successful and dedicated team. And, we still have more than 40 days left to go until the walk. I know for sure that we can once again, have to raise our goal. I'm betting that we may even be able to raise $2,000.
It'll only take 10 $20 donations, or 20 $10 donations, or 40 $5 donations! And yes, I realize that money is tight. But $5 (or the average cost for a cup of Starbucks!) goes a very, very long way in helping provide life-saving research and advocacy for the tiniest of babies.
Anyway, to continue with the good news ... I am excited to unveil the designs for our 2011 March for Babies shirt:
They'll be bright yellow with black ink and will include the MOD logo, too! Shirts are generously being provided by Casey's dad and stepmom for all of our team members (even the little ones). We'll also be entering them into the Family Division's T-Shirt Contest!
I'll be emailing our team members within the next week or so to get sizes and quantities. So, hang tight... you'll get them soon enough.
