Another Awesome Organization


Today the kids and I went to the Olive Garden for a luncheon with all the top schools that raised the most money for the Pennies for Pasta Campaign (http://www.olivegarden.com/company/community/pasta_pennies.asp) and the Honored Heroes and their families. We were honored that Sierra was not only the Honored Hero for the Pennies for Pasta campaign but also for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Light the Night Walk. Next year's campaign will be dedicated in Sierra's, Mathew's & Emily's memory. They all passed within a month from each other. All monies raised goes to research and for a cure. As you can see, we need a cure. Many kids are surviving but still some do not make it so we still have a ways to go. I want to thank Shelly & all at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society for all they do for these kids. They are amazing people and genuinely love these kids. I am thankful to them for all they did for us during such a difficult time in our lives and I feel so blessed to know them. Ask you local schools to get involved it is fun, definately for a worthy cause and of course the top schools get great pasta from the Olive Garden. Also, thank you so much to our local Olive Gardens for getting involved. God bless you all!!!
