A Big Surprise!

At Ayla's birthday party my Aunt's and Cousin brought a $1000.00 donation to me that they raised at their school. It's so amazing that all those people cared enough to give to our cause and most of them don't even know me.
This donation pushed us over our goal and made Ayla's Army the top team in our area! Yay!! For our first year we have really kicked-butt!!
I am so proud of my team and my friends and family for being so willing to help, the people who have reached out and wanted to get involved has been such a blessing!

Thanks to all!

Great Strides in 8 days!!

By the year 2013, the CF Foundation will have 12 drugs in Phase 3 trials or to the FDA approval desk and 4 of those drugs are aimed at CURING THE BASIC DEFECT OF CF. This is all because of you and your donations! Thank you!

Time keeps on slippin, slippin into the future....

I love that song and thought the lyrics suited this post well!!

We are running out of time people! Great Strides is just around the corner and we still have so much left to do to meet our team goal!! (Great Strides April 24th, 2010)

We have unofficially raised over $2000.00 already!! Which is totally awesome and could not have been done without all of you~

But our goal is $5000- and i know we can do it.... If everyone reaches their personal fundraising goals we will be over that amount!!

So let's get this going and finish strong, please let me know if I can help at all!!

Our First Event as Ayla's Army

Our Rummage Sale for Cystic Fibrosis went awesome. We had such a great turnout and so many wonderful donated items.
We had people offering their time and money and I was so humbled by the giving spirit of the folks who came out and helped our cause.

I had a great partner in Monica Atkinson. She was my right-hand girl in this and worked so hard to make this a success. I think we really worked well together and appreciate her so much!
Also the Entire Image Maker team, you ladies are amazing! We had baked goods, tips being donated and I can't mention enough the great location they provided.

Accent Signs donated our beautiful banner you will see in pics.
Our Grand total for the day was: $1542.55
ALL for Cystic Fibrosis!!!

Thanks again to everyone who had any part in the day- it wouldn't have been the same without you!
