Nothing new to post really. We took the crabs down to the children's hospital today, delivered some things to Ronald McDonald House, and went by the zoo. The zoo was sad for me today. There were so many children there...it made me miss Eli so much. We never got to take him to the zoo. :( Other than that, I've been working my butt off trying to get votes and support for the Chase Community Giving campaign over on Facebook. We are so close to earning $100,000 for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation. We are currently 3000 votes behind, but if everyone will go vote and ask friends and family to vote, surely we can catch up. Please help us out.

Here is Victoria's latest post:

Incredible Support

There are so many exciting things happening surrounding this amazing campaign, growing our vote numbers and raising much needed awareness of SMA. We are truly inspired by every one of you for rolling up your sleeves and fighting for this with us, calling in favors, thinking outside of the box, and NOT GIVING UP. Every single vote is important and just when we think we've tapped out our friend base, another awesome boost happens. In the last few days, here are some of the cool endorsements GSF + SMA have received (forgive us if we forgot anyone, it is crazy around here):
