RAK 50 - Jump rope for heart...

February 19, 2013

Our family is no stranger to that dreaded late night phone call that comes, a panicked loved one on the other end, stating that someone we adore has suffered from a heart attack.  We have sat by the phone waiting word on angiograms, angioplasty, bypass, and even valve replacement.

We make regular donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundations, and support them whenever we can.

We have a very adorable and enthusiastic little girl in our life who was intent on meeting her lofty goal of $350 for the Jump Rope for Heart Campaign.

For our RAK #50, we donated $25 to her fundraising campaign to push her a little closer to her goal.  We wish her happy jumping and are SO very proud of her!! <3

Her mom, my dear friend Tracy, sent this lovely reply...

Have I ever told you how wonderfully amazing, thoughtful, kind, generous... There are not enough positive adjectives in the English vernacular to describe you!!! Thank you from me and Eden for your kind donation. She is in bed now otherwise she'd be thanking you herself! Love you ♥ xoxo

Supporting the Heart and Stroke is a big deal... But putting a smile on the face of this beautiful little girl and the pride in her heart at having met a goal she set is worth way more than any amount of money we could possibly give.

We are so glad we could be a small part of this little ones realization of the greatness that she truly is.
