Hi Blogosphere Friends,
I'm writing now to bring your attention to a very special little girl. Mia Nalani is the daughter of my friend, Lilly. Mia was born with Trisomy 18, a genetic disorder. You can find her story here or at the Facebook link below. Lilly's brother and sister-in-law have started a fund in Mia's name. Whatever isn't used for Mia will be donated to benefit other kids with Trisomy 18 and their families. My dream is that we raise $10,000 for Mia and the other children with Trisomy 18.
Ways you can become involved:
Donate! If you are in the Cleveland area, you can go to any local Fifth-Third Bank and ask to make a donation to the Memorial/Fundraiser account for Mia Nalany. If you're outside of the Cleveland area, email us to find out how you can donate!
Participate! The fundraiser dinner will be on June 25th in Cleveland. You can find it on Facebook here OR email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information on how you can buy tickets.
Spread the word!
Join us on Crowdrise! Crowdrise is a great resource that utilizes Facebook, Twitter and your other social network accounts to get the word out about causes important to you --in my case, this is Mia.
Follow us on Twitter! You can find us here or search for MiaNalaniFund
Check us out on Facebook! As previously mentioned, we have a page for the actual fundraiser dinner and we also have a Facebook page set up to keep people up-to-date on how the fundraising is going.
