Spent time with good people AND my mom. This was my first official charity auction and I’m obsessed with how this system works. .
I wanted to support my friend and I knew I would connect to the mission @marchofdimes but I didn’t realize I would find an even deeper meaning behind it.
My mom was born with spinabifida. Thankfully, she wasn’t a premie, but babies come prematurely for all different reasons and my mom shared a story of another child she knew growing up having the same ailment and how that child became the poster child for March of dimes. .
And then it hit me, my dad delivers little premies and im sure in his career has had some devastating circumstances with his own patients. Thank goodness there’s a mission out there to help not only the children but parents in this difficult time. .
And then my mom and I spoke about my little cousin being 3 months premature. How my uncle could fit him in his hand. That picture became nationally recognized for the reality of it all. So many babies not ready for the world yet; but fighting to survive. So small. So fragile. .
And then I heard this: More babies die from premature birth than anything else. I had no idea.
So you could say at the very least, I was touched and definitely want to be a part of more events like this. I hope you find one in your area. It’s eye opening and simply amazing watching a community come together to raise money for such a wonderful cause. .
If you’re local I’ve got a charity ride for you! Come ride with me Nov 23 and support Metro Ministries. This organization provides for children in need with the word of god and the care they need. Help save a child.
More details coming in my stories with a link to sign up. .
