Love for Slater Fundraiser

Sometimes life is hard, like when you have to move to a new state, and you can't find a rental, and you have to parent your children all by yourself while you're husband is working his new job, and you aren't getting much sleep because you think about ghosts in your house.

But then something happens, and you realize that maybe while life isn't easy, it could be a whole lot worse.

On June 10th a 5 1/2 year old boy named Slater Holt (the cute boy in that picture) fell from his two-story bedroom window to the concrete below. He suffered severe trauma to his head and was life-flighted to Primary Children's Hospital. He is currently on life support in ICU in a drug induced coma. Doctors anticipate he will stay in ICU for weeks then months for rehabilitation.  He very possibly will end up with constant breathing assistance and a wheelchair.

Yeah, that's a whole lot worse.

For the week of June 20-25th we'll be donating to the Love for Slater fundraiser.

During the week we will give 100% of our proceeds to Love for Slater.  And we'll still be running our 15% sale so you can buy EVEN MORE STUFF, and we can donate the proceeds to help pay for Slater's medical bills.

We want to get the word out about this fundraiser and about next week, so if you want to help you can put this little button on your blog.  Or just tell everyone you know.  Or both.
