Friends, we’ve got 6.9 days to finish up our fundraising for the March for Babies.
I have to share that we’ve been blown away by the response to this fundraiser. I’ve said it before, we have a village. Our village carried us through much of our pregnancy and the first couple months of Oaklee’s life, but you know what? They’re not done. We asked people to contribute to an organization near and dear to our story, and they did, despite that organization meaning little to themselves personally.
Thank you to every person who donated. Every donation, big or small, got us far beyond our goal of $1000, past our goal of $1500 and even above our goal of $2250. We’re sitting around $2382 currently, goals met, the walk coming up soon, but we won’t stop asking until the walk is over.
Again, Oaklee’s first 69 days of life were spent in the NICU. Multiply these next 6.9 days by 10. That’s 10 weeks. It’s a long time to need organizations such as March of Dimes. We wish no one needed them in the first place, but we’re grateful for their presence in Oaklee’s journey.
So again, we ask, could you help us reach further past our fundraising goal of $2250?
Every donation helps expand programs and educate medical professionals to make sure moms and babies like me and Oaklee get the best possible care. Your donation is funding research to find solutions to the biggest health threats and supporting moms through every stage of the pregnancy journey, especially when things don’t go as planned.
Could you give even a dime for each day Oaklee was in the NICU ($6.90)? Thanks, in advance, for your contribution!
