|My first birthday card of the year!|
"Our" N*stya gets to come back to the USA this summer! A wonderful family in Michigan has the blessing of hosting her this time. Get this though: 2 of her older sisters get to come with her! This was a little bit more than anyone had expected so they could use a hand in fundraising. The actual cost of hosting is a little less than $3000 each! They were still fundraising for 2 when they found out. I love how they didn't back out and are still willing to host these special girls.

Anyway...I know that not all of you send cards and very few of you give me gifts. Don't worry, this is not a complaint. I do the same for you! (Facebook wall messages totally count as official birthday greetings, right?!?)
YET, if you were going to give me a gift or send me a card in the mail, would you consider making a donation in my honor instead?

My goal is to raise $250. Whatever I raise by May 30th (the day after my actual birthday), my husband will match. (PS: He just found that out by reading this blog! Congrats, honey, now you don't have to pick out a birthday gift!) So if my friends work together to donate $250, it will actually be $500! (When you give, please be sure to mention that you are doing it in honor of me so Michael can keep track of the amount. )
No amount is too small.
Just $5 will make a difference!
(That is about the cost of a card and a stamp.)
