What If This Were Your Child?

Love for Parker

Parker is a special little boy with huge medical problems: he not only suffers from Downs Syndrome but also from larger, more critical issues. His family's insurance provider has run true to stereotypical form and has refused to assist with medical devices of life-and-death importance for Parker. Parker's family faces ever-mounting medical bills with only the prospect of more bills since Parker needs more surgery.

Melody of Slurping Life decided to do something to help Parker and his family and is holding a fund raiser from July 23 through July 27. To generate more interest and add greater incentive, Melody is also giving away prizes and has asked others, including myself, to donate prizes as well. Prizes include, courtesy of Hewlett-Packard, a digital camera/printer/accessories package retailing for approximately $430. To be eligible to win a prize, you must donate a minimum of $2, though a larger contribution would certainly be appreciated. All donations will go directly to an account accessible by Parker's parents.

As I mentioned, Melody contacted me about donating a prize, and I was happy to have been asked to be a part of this fund raiser. I am donating a custom website design update from RS Designs (my design website), valued at $55 - $120 (depending on options chosen). The winner of this prize may choose 3 of the following options:
  1. Web site color change (change the colors of your existing template, including images)
  2. New background image
  3. Custom sidebar image
  4. Custom header
  5. Custom advertising banner.
Make a note to stop by Slurping Life sometime during July 23 through July 27. If you can post about this yourself, that would be great. The more people who are aware of this, the more people who will contribute. Whatever you can do to help is greatly appreciated.
