be nice to Simon and he will send you cookies!



So this is the deal....I am running a last minute campaign to fund raise for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. My bestest buddy Brook has a son with CF and she will be participating in the Great Strides walk this weekend. the problem is that she has only made it to the halfway point of her fundraising goal of $3000.00.
So here is my offer: If you donate (any amount over $5.00, by midnight April 30th, come back here and leave me a comment that you did......I will enter you in a drawing for none other than a handcrafted tasty treat made by myself. I will draw the winner the morning of May 1st. The winner will get his/her choice of:
2 dozen custom chocolate chip cookies (custom meaning that I will add your favorite treats to the mix)

1 dozen beautifully decorated sugar cookies

1 dozen custom cupcakes (custom meaning your favorite flavor)
Sent directly to your home!

Besides a sweet treat, know that the donation is secure and tax deductible.

Now, if you want an extra chance to win:

Share this donation drive with your friends, and for every friend that you can get to participate, you will get an extra shot at the prize. all you have to do is have that person include your name in their comment.


Finally, I know times are tough for everyone, but any size donation means something to the future of Simon and everyone with Cystic Fibrosis that is praying for a cure. It took me just minutes to donate, it was that easy. So please read the information below, and then click HERE to make a change!

My dear friend has a son who has Cystic Fibrosis. When Simon was diagnosed, the median age of survival was 31.5 years. Today, because of money and research, the median age is 37 years. Can you imagine being told that your child would not likely live out a full and healthy life? Although this is a huge improvement, we can’t stop raising money until there is a cure for Simon. Currently, research is moving faster than it can be funded; the only factor standing in our way is a dollar sign.

Cystic Fibrosis is the most prevalent genetic disease in the United States. Advances continue to be made in finding a cure, but your help is needed now - more than ever - to help keep up the momentum of this life-saving research. Too many young lives depend on this vital research to let it go unfunded!

GREAT STRIDES is the Cystic Fibrosis (CF) Foundation's largest and most successful national fundraising event. This year, Brooke will be walking in the GREAT STRIDES event at the Southern Utah-Coral Canyon site on April 30th, 2011. Please help Brook meet her fundraising goal of $3000.00 by sponsoring her. You'll feel confident in knowing that your generous gift is used efficiently and effectively: nearly 90 cents out of every dollar you contribute goes directly toward supporting research and specialized care that improves the quality of life for those with CF. And, it's tax-deductible.

Making a donation is easy and secure! Just click HERE to make a donation to her fundraising page. Any amount you can donate is greatly appreciated!

Donating to GREAT STRIDES is such a simple and effective way for you to show your support for this important cause. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those with CF! Once again, thank you for supporting the mission of the CF Foundation!
