FUNDAY MONDAY: Help Support Mito Awareness! {GIVEAWAY}

Today's FUNDAY MONDAY giveaway post is a little different than usual.  Yes, I'll be giving away something fab - a $50 gift card to Target! - but this time, you need to do some giving too.

Two of my friend have little boys suffering from Mitochondrial Disease.  Ben and Grant are two of the sweetest and cutest kiddos you've ever met and the fact that these toddlers face such an uphill battle breaks my heart.  But their mothers and families are true fighters and are determined to beat this disease, and I'm hoping you'll all join me in helping them achieve that.

Grant's 14 year old sister, Delaney, started a Facebook page to help raise awareness about Mito called Wish GRANTed.

Delaney is hoping to get 10,000 "likes" in a week and she's almost at 3,500 after just a few days.  Please click on over to Wish GRANTed and hit "like" to help Delaney reach her goal!

And on September 18th, I'll be walking for Ben's Buddies in the 2011 MitoAction Energy Walk & 5K Run for Mitochondrial Disease in South Boston.  Please visit my personal page here and consider donating to sponsor our team or joining us as a virtual walker or in person if you're in the area.  Every dollar raised can help make Mito a thing of the past.

Please spread the word about Wish GRANTed and the MitoAction Walk!  By doing so, not only will you be able to enter to win a $50 gift card to Target from AFOMFT, but you can also head over to Pyjammy's Triplets and enter to win a $20 CafePress gift certificate there too.   Giving back has its perks!

  5. As a mom of a toddler with mito disease, your efforts to spread awareness of what our little warriors face are amazing. I was already a fan of Wish GRANTED for personal reasons. I just wanted to tell you thank you for doing this. Good for you for being a walker, the walks that are sponsored by the UMDF are one of the main and ONLY ways we are able to fund research to hopefully find a treatment or cure for our kids one day. God bless you and everyone else who supports the efforts of Ben and Grant's families - cause in doing so, you support ALL of our families.
