Tomorrow is the big day 6/22 ~ 2nd Annual Save Lives Save Money event


Tomorrow 6/22 is the BIG day! Our Save Lives Save Money event will be in full swing, after a month of planning and hours of work.  I wanted to take a second to tell you why this event is so important to me and how it came together.  I was asked to teach a coupon class  and promote a blood drive last year which I agreed to do.  But once they heard the story of my son Matthew being born missing half a heart they wanted to do more.  We decided to hold the blood drive in honor of him, it then turned into more than just a blood drive we added a food drive, a family event as well, and we called it Save Lives Save Money.  After that event we decided to start a non profit charity in honor of my son Matthew, where we would raise awareness of  his heart defect Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome as well as raise money to help others.  ALL money (100%) raised for Save Lives Save Money will go to help children and their families in medical crisis.  We can make a difference in the world one person at a time.

The blood drive means so much to our family because you NEVER know when it will be your loved one requiring the gift of blood to save their life.  At this time of year the Red Cross is at a critically low level in their blood bank, read more here. We are grateful for those who selflessly gave the gift of blood, that when teamed with the talented hands of a heart surgeon and the power of prayer wtih grace of our Father in Heaven saved the life of my son!

SAVE LIVES SAVE MONEY is on June 22 – Noon – 4:30 pm at Stevens Henager College in Nampa across from the Nampa Cost-Co click for Map.
