And, we're off...to a great start!



Not only did we get the PLANE ticket, we got 2 nights at a Hotel for Elizabeth as well!

Thank you to BLIND SOCIETY MARKETING AGENCY, owners Jim and Jami Clark, who donated points for a round trip ticket for Elizabeth to fly to Colorado and meet her oldest brother Michael who she has never met! Their efforts also inspired an anonymous donor who donated 2 nights at a hotel for Elizabeth when she goes on her journey! THANK YOU for making this dream come true! I cried when they let me know :)

Last nights meeting was so cool....it just felt charged and put together! It feels like we are all on the same page and you can really tell how much of our hearts and energy are invested in Elizabeth and the Big Give! Its so cool how we are working together to make all these socials and arrangements possible.


The Home Buying Social will be this week...

An insert from my follow up email below:

"This week's BIG arrangement is assisting Elizabeth with getting her truck tuned up and repaired! It is running, but from what I understand, could use a little help. It's an older model Ford that she saved up for and bought. It is not a 4 x 4. We will be working diligently on this!! Lets get this arranged by next Wednesday, I am positive that we can!! If you know of a business that would like to be part of this, please invite them to participate, as we would greatly appreciate their help!"

This is awesome, I can only imagine what we will accomplish by August 16th! We are planning for a fundraiser in July...the group, along with Elizabeth will plan a fundraiser for someone in the Valley that is in need and we will accomplish this together...I think it will feel really good for Elizabeth to be able to give back with us, the gift of giving is HUGE! We spent some time discussing that...
Movin right along!!!

This is absolutely awesome, hard to believe actually. I admire all of the efforts that you girls are devoting, and the time that you are dedicating to bringing Elizabeth a new found happiness. It truly is a blessing. You guys should be so proud of yourselves. I hope that the future will continue on the successful path that has taken you all thus far, and that you reap the pleasures that only those that impact another person's life experiences.

Shauna, I love your blog! It is so inspiring. I've watched Oprah's Big Give and wanted to help in some way with another project. I would love to help with your big give in any way I can. I'll stay tuned to your blog to see how I can help.
