Our Annual Community Garage Sale is Sat June 15th from 8a-3p!!!! If you want the address, please email me at email@example.com. 100% of everything we sell at our house is going towards a CURE for Cystic Fibrosis and our neighborhood is doing a Bake Sale/Goodies for CF!!! Some houses will have baked goodies, others will have hot dogs or chips or drinks, etc... We are trying something a little different this year instead of everyone just doing baked goods:)
Last year we all raised $400!!! I wonder if we can reach $500 this year???
The other day, we got a visitor from a lady that lives up the road in an elderly home. She is in a wheelchair and remembers us from our Garage Sale last year, and remembered about us raising money for Cystic Fibrosis for our son. She said that she is having her own sale and that she wants 100% to go towards a CURE for CF!! Isn't that the nicest thing ever!!! Her name is Barb and will be visiting us at our garage sale too. I can't wait to thank her for her generosity and for thinking of us:)
This is why we do the community bake sale for CF...not JUST to raise money, but to spread the word about Cystic Fibrosis!! One in 31 Americans is a symptomless carrier of CF, just like my husband and I. Two carriers together have a one in four chance that each child will have Cystic Fibrosis. Lil' Chris was our 1 in 4 chance. Luckily Ayla was not born with CF.
So, spread the word about CF neighbors!! The best website is cff.org!!
BIG THANK YOU TO ALL OUR NEIGHBORS AND BARB WHO ARE HELPING US GET ONE STEP CLOSER TO "A CURE 4 LIL' CHRIS!!"
PS. Lil' Chris is doing great and can't wait for his cousins to come from NJ tomorrow for the whole week:) Also, we are so happy that Sarah, 10 year old CF girl, was able to get her new lungs!! It's been all over the news and I am so proud of her mom for doing everything she could to save her daughter by petitioning for her to get lungs even though she is under the age limit.
Aaaahhhh! - It was one of the more important affirmations I've had in my ministry. It was 2011 and Shaina and I were going through a Church Planters Assessment to see ...
