First, I wanted to say thank you to all my friends and family members that supported me in beating my $500 goal. We not only beat my goal, but I also received contributions from 10 people. Even if you didn’t donate, spreading the word and passing the message along helped too. In total, the event raised $62,000 towards research and program costs that battle more than 100 different forms of muscle disabling diseases.
If you didn’t know, MDA in Washington is partnered with some of the leading institutions that fight diseases and cancer including University of Washington Medical Center, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research, Seattle Children’s and the SCCA. The money is being put to good use. Once the code has been cracked with this disease, it’s going to help eliminate a lot of pain, struggle and heartache many families like ours face today.
I wanted to also say thank you to SmugMug for sponsoring my campaign by providing me with free prints for the posters and postcards that I will be sending to my generous donors. SmugMug is my online gallery and printing service for KVW Photo and has provided an amazing service for me and my clients for the past two years. If you’re ever in need of a reliable, friendly, affordable printing solution, check them out. I couldn’t be more happy with my experience with them.
