Default A Fundraiser in honor of my son...For Make-A-Wish

Hello all,

I am not sure if you all know me or my story. I have been on WI since 2007 because my son wanted to cook up more secret recipes and WI had all of them solved for him. I made a great deal of friends and hung around a little longer than I originally planned. (don't we all?) My son passed away due to a heart condition last year. Before he died, he was able to go on his wish, and those are the memories that keep me going on a daily basis. BUT, it was my all friends on WI that kept me going through my darkest hours. I needed time to heal, but eventually found my way back here.

Now, my son's school is hosting a gift wrapping fundraiser for Make-A-Wish at a local Barnes and Nobles. Barnes and Nobles decided to help out with it. Because of them, we can make this fundraiser a nationwide event. Barnes and Nobles has sent us a voucher that if you present it at the checkout of any of their stores nationwide, during the days of December 10 - 20, 2009, Barnes and Nobles will donate a portion of the sales to the school's fundraiser. The school is then sending all monies to Make-A-Wish in my son's name.

This is a great way to help many children have wishes granted. It costs you nothing, and so many can benefit from it. So if you plan on doing any Holiday shopping at any Barnes and Nobles between the days of December 10- 20, please consider printing out this voucher and presenting it at the checkout.

Thank you all for your kindness and helping me do something great in my son's honor.
MommaMia3

PS ..from what I understand, Barnes and Nobles will donate between 10% to 20% of the sales depending on the sale totals.

This will definitely benefit him. I do not live near a Barnes and nobles but, I know some who do. I will make sure they get a copy of the paper.

Big hug!!! Mommamia!! A noble cause for the noblest of people.

Your son was blessed by you......as you were blessed by his spirit.

Why some life journeys are shorter than others just impresses me by the
impact the people make on others during those all too few years.

Your son makes me proud that I know you.
