Trying to buy kids in the hospital toys/games...

Hey guys,

Once a year I ask for a donation for either raising $ for a cure for Cystic Fibrosis, or this year i'm doing some work with Colton Underwood (this year's bachelor) and his foundation.

I only ask once per year. And this year i'm asking for any donation (as small as you want, some people even give 5 bucks. That's a board game!) to help buy kids who are stuck in the hospital for weeks on end, toys/games. The thing is. Kids with CF can't share games/toys/etc with others. They carry specific bacteria in their lungs (which is what causes the damage to their lungs) and that bacteria likes to jump from kid to kid. When my girls go inpatient they spend 2-3 weeks in 1 room, never leaving, on isolation. it's terrible. Colton is trying to make it a little better for these kids.

Just a little history on an AWESOME foundation

This year colton gave my girls both Afflovests. And it has literally changed their lives. These vests are $15,000 apiece! and they're giving one away in every state (and sometimes 2). This is costing over a million dollars initially, and they keep updating the vests as the girls grow.

This is how they were stuck before they got these vests. 3 feet of movement from that vest machine, always having to be plugged into the wall, VERY loud so limited to where it can be done:



And this is how they do therapy now. almost totally silent, no wires/plugs, and they can walk around and do whatever they want! we even did it on the plane to Cali!:







and here's the story from when we got them:

Just a great organization to work with that's making huge improvements in the lives of people with this terminal illness.

Done! It's not just the $'s that help, it's knowing other people out there got your back when you need help. Please consider donating even if you can just afford a little.
