Macy needs YOUR help!
Please support her on her first ever Buddy Walk!
This little girl is so amazing! She is only 7 months old, but in this short 7 months she has already taught us and everyone around her so much about life, love, compassion and faith. This ray of sunshine was brought into the world on a cold wintery December day. This 28th day of December will forever be etched in stone as the day that changed our lives. For the BETTER! It is hard to believe how this one tiny extra chromosome can make such a dramatic impact!
Not only are we, her parents, blessed to have been chosen to care for and love this little angel...but God has placed her in all of your lives as well. She has an amazing support system of family and friends in all of you, for that she is truly blessed!
She is asking that you please support her team "Movin' with Macy" during this years' Buddy Walk!
When? Saturday, October 9th, 2010 10am is when the fun activities begin - 12noon is when the walk begins :-)
Where? UNO (Football Stadium/track - our short walk will also take us over Dodge Street, through Memorial Park and Elmwood Park)
How? Donate. Walk with us. If you want to "walk" on Macy's team please let me know soon as we are going to have special shirts made (email me at firstname.lastname@example.org before August 15th - we need plenty of time to get the shirts ordered, they will probably be around $10 each, I will keep you posted once I get a headcount of how many people want to buy one). If you are unable to walk with us, please at least consider making a donation on Macy's behalf. We have a hefty goal of $2,000 that, with your help, we hope to achieve.
Why? All of the money raised goes to Omaha Down Syndrome Parents Network. This organization brings education, programs, activities and awareness to all of us. It helps bring opportunities to Macy and her new friends that otherwise wouldn’t exist. Joe and I have met so many wonderful families who are on this very same journey, for this we are already extremely grateful! No donation is too small, anything you can contribute to this amazing network would be greatly appreciated. *Remember, these donations are TAX-DEDUCTIBLE, both business or personal*
You can go online to www.firstgiving.com/MovinWithMacy and make a donation using your credit card.
You can send a check to 20814 Plum Street Elkhorn, NE 68022 made payable to ODSPN!
or Come walk with us! I hear that the day is so fun and full of tons of stuff for kids of all ages to do!
Feel free to keep up with Little Miss Macy and all of our "Harnisch Happenings on our blog: http://theharnischfamily.blogspot.com/
A special thanks to you all, we appreciate all of your love and support!
