We will be at the Addison Wellness Expo this weekend, October 16-17 with an educational booth for UNITE, MADNAP and The Indiana Star Foundation. We are conducting a fundraiser to defray the costs of participating in this event and conducting other awareness activities.
Several wonderful and generous donors have contributed. We are raffling off a free photography session with Natasha Hance. Tickets are $5. If you want to purchase online, you can use the donate button on this website to pay via our pledgie account and then send me an email to let me know how many tickets you bought.
We will be selling “Quilts for A Cause,” and various items such as hand-knit baby and children’s winter hats, bracelets, hand-made jewelry and other fun items.
My friend and fellow activist Ellen Liversidge (who lost her son Rob to Zyprexa-induced hyperglycemia) has generously allowed me to confiscate over two dozen of her vintage quilts to sell. She runs a business selling them, so we will be accepting all small to extravagant offers above cost for the sale of these quilts! I’ve set up a Flickr account and blog to showcase the quilts. Minimum prices on the quilts will be posted soon. If you see one that you want please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get it shipped to you.
Many thanks to the following donors:
Peek Aren’t You Curious at Northpark Mall (gift bags)
Jenny M Jewels (hand-made earrings)
Christian Delahunty (baby quilts, hand-made jewelry and more)
Amery & Christiane Schultz (MADNAP Teddy Bears)
We are also going to be handing out pink and blue ribbons in honor of October – Infant Loss Awareness Month.
