Tuesday Toot 4/20/2010

Ok, I know I've already "tooted" about the March for Babies, but today I just have to "toot" about the whole team! I keep bumping up the goal and we keep exceeding it! I won't bump it again, I promise, there are only 5 days until we walk!

I started out with a goal of $250, I honestly thought our family team would have like 4 or 5 people and I just wouldn't be able to raise a lot of money in this economy. Well before I knew it we had over $250 so I bumped the goal to $660. (I had chosen $250 because Aidan weighed 2.5 lbs when born and then $660 because he spent 66 days in the NICU.) And then, BOOM! We had 11 walkers and over $660. I raised the goal to $1000, another week went by and we had 13 walkers and $1400! I raised the goal to $1500, and now our team has 14 walkers and we have over $1600!!!

If you'd like to sponsor us visit my March of Dimes page: www.marchforbabies.org/aidansayers

I am just so impressed with our team PRE(e)MI(e)UM WALKERS. The name was chosen because Preemies are Premium babies!!! I am really looking forward to the walk this Sunday, I'm just hoping the rain holds off, but even if it doesn't I'm a proud team captain!!!

Side note: The Wordless Wednesday post last week was photos of Aidan at Easter. Isn't he a handsome little man?!?! Just so sweet in his little suit!
