fundraiser for jonah

So, you wanna be a part of something really cool (if I do say so myself... and I do)?
To help raise funds for Jonah's care AND to support EB research, a few of our family members have come up with a great idea. Buy clicking on the BUY NOW button on my right-hand side bar, you can buy one of these awesome magnets (that my brother designed, thankyouverymuch) for your car or fridge or forehead... whatever.


Don't you just love it??? (But please, people, don't describe it as Carolina blue or Matt might not purchase one... We'll just say it's Jonah blue.)

They cost $10, and 10% of the net proceeds will go to DebRA (Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America. DEBRA is the only national non-profit organization dedicated to both promoting research to find new treatments and a cure for Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) and providing information and support for people with EB and their families. Check out debra.org to find out more.) The rest of the proceeds will go directly to help with Jonah's care, medical bills, and bandaging supplies.

Anyway, if you'd like a rockin' cool magnet and you'd LOVE to help Jonah, just click BUY NOW, and you can purchase one (or more) securely through PayPal.

** Please allow a couple weeks for delivery **

Oh yeah, if you don't want a magnet, but would still like to donate, you can do that by clicking on the DONATE button on my sidebar. All of that money will go directly to Jonah's care.

We're working on a separate page off this blog (if you want to share a link) with all of the above information (and some cute pictures, to boot), but wanted to go ahead and put up a post about it so you can get 'em hot off the presses!
We've also created a flier you can post to let other people know about Jonah and this fundraiser. If you'd be interested in getting the flier to post, please email Matt's Aunt Katherine at stainsofgrass at yahoo dot com, and she'll be glad to send you the pdf file.

As always, more than anything, we covet your prayers, and don't expect a thing. Thank you for your love, support, and continued petition to God the Father on our behalf.

I had not checked your blog yet today and Leigh called to ask if I had ordered a button yet. Of course I had to immediately get online and get me one. This is a great idea and a good way to show support for Jonah and EB. I look forward to receiving it. Hope all is going well and you are enjoying the beautiful weather. Still praying for you, your family and precious Jonah. He looks like he is really growing.

Did you tell Matt that it's not Carolina blue? Because I'm pretty sure there is something in the Bible about liars... ;)

Ang said...

It's more of a robin egg blue actually. Carolina blue is paler. :-)


I'm not usually into the magnet on the car thing (maybe because I'm 23 and not a soccer mom? haha), but I def. will have this on my car. :-)

Cara McLeod said...
