Please Help Me

and by doing me this favor you will also be helping others associated with Trisomy 18.

The Trisomy 18 Foundation has passed the first round of voting in the Chase Community Giving Initiative on Facebook.

This is excerpt of an email I received from the T18 Foundation:

What started as a commitment to raise awareness about Trisomy 18 just a few short years ago has blossomed into an amazing community of people across the country. Within 10 years, our small seed of an idea has turned into a BIG IDEA.

Thanks to you, the Trisomy 18 Foundation qualified as one of the top causes in Round 1 of the Chase Community Giving initiative on Facebook. Now, our dream of honoring all those affected by Trisomy 18 moves to Round 2 and brings us closer to winning $1 million!

From January 15-22, the Trisomy 18 Foundation will be one of 100 charities vying for $1 million to support their causes. The organization with the winning number of votes will receive $1 million and 5 runners up will receive $100,000. 

 
As a mother affected by T18 I am asking you the PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE check out the T18 website and vote in every way possible.  It is my earnest prayer that through increased research and knowledge of T18 more mothers and fathers will make the choice to continue their child's life as we did for Johanna.  The T18 Foundation has a lot of great resources for parents facing T18.  Maybe if they can get that large chunk of change they will be able to help and provide support services to even more families.

Thanks for your votes.
