Sorry it's been a while since I've posted, school has started back up and I'm running crazy trying to get everything done. It's not a bad thing at all I love my job, just lots to do. AND I'm super grateful to have my job!
Last year, a friend of mine lost her little girl at the age of only 24 days to Trisomy 13. If you do not know about this disorder, please check it out at www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org . My friend, Natasha and her wonderful hubby Jody are celebrating baby Elizabeth's Angelversary by having a shopping experience like no other and all proceeds are being donated to the Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep organization. How is this shopping experience so special? Well, other than celebrating beautiful baby Elizabeth and all other Trisomy babies who are watching over us, there will be several independent consultants from many different companies there to help you with all your shopping needs. Of course, I'll be there ready to help you and all your friends/family with any and all of your card making, stamping, and scrapbooking needs. I will be partying with the Tromplers and other fan-tabulous consultants from other companies on Saturday, October 15th from 1-4 in Lewisville, Texas. However, if you can't make it to Lewisville, Texas you can shop online! http://www.mjwest.myctmh.com/ - Just look for the Natasha Trompler party, click on that, then shop away!
Below, I've pasted the flyer Natasha & Jody Trompler have created for this special event.
In loving memory of Elizabeth Anne Trompler, September 10, 2010 – October 4, 2010
Please help us raise awareness and funds in honor of Elizabeth.
Elizabeth was born with the genetic disorder, Trisomy 13. Although most babies with this condition do not make it to birth, Elizabeth did, and she blessed our lives for 24 days. She was a true blessing from God, and we cherish the short time He gave us with her. Our lives are better because of our daughter. We invite you to follow our journey from her diagnosis to her death, and then life beyond, by visiting Elizabeth’s Caring Bridge site at www.caringbridge.org/visit/elizabethtrompler.
As Elizabeth’s first birthday and Angelversary approach, we want to honor her memory by increasing awareness of Trisomy 13 and related disorders, while raising funds for “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep”. NILMDTS provides memory preservation to families with terminally ill or stillborn babies. If you are not familiar with “Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep”, please visit their website, www.nowilaymedowntosleep.org.
The 2011 Elizabeth Experience consists of 2 fundraising opportunities. Opportunity 1 is a shopping extravaganza targeted to individual consultants willing to donate their profits from the designated extravaganza party to NILMDTS. Opportunity 2 is an online auction. We are looking for donated items, certificates, and services for this auction. All profits from both events will be going to Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep.
