Donate Your Joe Dough!
We are trying to raise more than $50,000 by asking each of you and your network of friends to “Donate Your Joe Dough” one day in September through the official Infant Loss and Awareness Day of October 15th, 2009. Okay, if you don’t drink coffee, you can donate the price of your morning vice; smoothie, hot chocolate, tea…whatever your drink of choice for one day. With these funds we will strengthen our program by recruiting new members and provide them with the necessary training to make a huge local impact. Our hope is that families from all over the world know about Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep so that no family goes without the beautiful gift of memorable photographs.
