Red Riding Hood for Juvenile Diabetes {giveaway}

Amelia, a 4 year old little girl who is very, very special to us was recently diagnosed with Type I Juvenile Diabetes. You can read her mom's heart wrenching account of her first days post diagnosis HERE. As a mom, her journal entry tugs at my heart in a way for I which I have no words to describe. Grace, Amelia, & Emily at our Easter Tea Party, 04/2010.

We hate that Amelia has to walk this path but we're committed to helping any way we can. We know God is watching after her and with the wonderful parents and support system she has she will be okay.

In September, our family will join Amelia, her mom & dad Cori and Eric, her brother Abram and the rest of her team, in a walk to raise funds for juvenile diabetes research. And that's why I need your help. Let's help raise funds on Amelia's behalf!

And while we're at it, let's give away THE sweetest "little Red" doll handmade by TaDa! Creations. For every donation made in Amelia's behalf, even $1, your name will be entered into the drawing once. For every $5 donated your name will also be entered into the drawing. So, let's say you donate $20. Your name will be entered 5 times (once for donating and 4 times for the amount donated). Please leave a separate comment for each entry!

Click HERE to go to Amelia's page and then click DONATE NOW at the bottom right hand corner of the page.

Giveaway closes Sunday, August 1st at 12 noon CST. Winner will be drawn at random Sunday evening and posted Monday morning, August 2nd. Easy enough, right?

This little dollie is SOOOOOO cute! We have several TaDa! dollies and they are
A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E! Check out all the sweet details...

Little Red has the sweetest lace-trimmed bloomers and the cutest Mary Janes! She comes with her own little basket too! And if you can't stand the cuteness and NEED to bring a TaDa! dollie home right away, check out the shop HERE. Angel & Amy, the designers behind TaDa! Creations, have graciously offered to give you a 20% discount on dollies in their shop with the code
"littlepumpkingrace" through August 2nd! Discount will be given in the form of a PayPal refund.

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! (Grace would say PINK lemonade :)

Won't you help us raise lots of $$$ for juvenile diabetes research on Amelia's behalf? Help us spread the word by posting on blogger/ facebook/ twitter.

Thank You & Good Luck!

Thanks so much for supporting Juvenile Diabetes in Amelia's name.
We all are learning how to care for Amelia and pray daily for a cure. What a life changing illness for a 4 year old. God is good and thanks to wonderful friends, Amelia will be strong and hopefully one day lick this illness. She truly is a special grandaughter.
