Some of you may be familiar with the March of Dimes. It is a large charity organization that is dedicated to saving the lives of premature babies. My cousin was born severely premature, and without them, he would not have survived. He spent most of his first year of life in the NICU -- a newborn intensive care unit which was made possible by the March of Dimes-funded research.
I know times are tough, and I'm not going to beg.
... but this is personal for me, and for my family. We have a team that walks in three days. If you would consider donating, it would mean the world to me.
If you DO donate, mention that "Aubrey" referred you. I'm keeping track through my aunt. Any donations of $5 or more will be rewarded with a bust sketch.
EDIT: Duh. Here's the link: Ethan's Journey
Tuesday, my hotel has two guests in house and no arrivals. I should be finishing up my portrait commissions list by then. (Or at least finishing up two or three of them.) Working six days a week to chip away at debt. Blegh. Good thing I love my jobs. :)

I had four check-ins lined up for today, and one of them was in house before I even clocked in. That leaves me with three check-ins to do over the next seven and a half hours. *hugs Graphire 3* Mommy's missed you. :]
Hey Aubrey, long time no see! I didn't see a text field in the donations itself so I just wanted to let you know...I just got my paycheck in and pulled $10 out of that to donate. It's not much, but I hope it helps at least a little
