ometimes you read a story that rocks you to your utter core. Sometimes, that story becomes even worse, to where it is unbelievable. It makes you feel helpless sitting there in your own life complaining about stupid things, or obsessing about others. It makes you want to do something, anything. Then you realize when you go to the donation page, that you actually knew this sweet man. That smile is unmistakable. This family has now faced the unthinkable, you can read the story that is on the SF Chronicle's site today here

This news came just as we were getting ready to send out check out to the Make A Wish Foundation for our annual giving campaign on Monday. While we are sending that one out, we are also going to now hold a campaign for this family during the month of February, so a portion of all new contracts signed will be sent directly to their Wells Fargo contribution account. We already have two booked this week so far, so we are on our way. Though it is small in comparison, I hope to continue to do more, and am always open to hearing great ways of fundraising for this family.
Even if you aren't getting married or booking with us, you can still consider donating on their donation site
(where you can see this little guy singing Roar, it is so sweet!).
With much love,
