So today I'm joining Jen, from Dangerously Domestic, to help out children who are struggling with a very demanding disease called JM or Juvenile Myositis. It affects about 17,000 children and adults nation wide with about 1,000 new cases every year. It is a very rare autoimmune disease that is extremely debilitating. To learn more about this disease just click HERE.
There will be a fundraiser in Hillsboro, OR on September 11, 2010 with a concert, dinner and an auction. That's where you come in. I love any opportunity to serve others that I can get. I know a lot of you feel the same way but you're not sure where to start. Well, this is your chance.
Jen has started collecting items to be auctioned off at the JM event. We are calling out to all of you crafters out there who would like to donate your time and talents to a good cause. The deadline for donations is August 31, 2010.
I was really excited to hear about this event because sometimes I get lost in my own world and my own problems. It is humbling to know that there are so many people struggling out there. I have been so blessed so this is my opportunity to pay it forward. If I spend just a little bit of my time-- I can help ease some of their burden. If we all band together it can have an amazing impact on helping to find a cure.
I hope you will take some time and think about ways you or your children can get involved in something beyond yourselves and give a little something back.
