March of Dimes - Please Read!

Hey all,

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.

Cheers,
A

EDIT: Duh. Here's the link: Ethan's Journey

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 :)

Because it meant a lot to you, I donated a spare $5 I had laying around in my Paypal account.

I really appreciate that. I'll send a doodle your way. :) <3

A doodle? *reads journal entry again* I get a sketch? 8X

Yeah, if you want. I was offering bust sketches for donations of $5 or more if people wanted them.

Oooh, if that's the case do you wanna doodle my character Hixnu? [link]

I donated $20 on your behalf. Since this meant so much to you how could I refuse? *hugs* I hope your doing better also.

Wow! Thanks so much! :) What character would you like a sketch of?
CursedNights's avatar
I get a free sketch?

I wanted to ask could the sketch be of two people?

Where does the mention of "Aubrey" go?
timmydoomsqueaks's avatar
I think there is a text field somewhere. If you can't find one, just let me know you donated, etc. I can always verify. :)
