Gwendolyn Strong Foundation has a chance to win $20,000 for SMA through YOUR daily votes! Yep, we need your super awesome voting fingers to get to work again!
Twelve children’s charities from around the country, including the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, were selected by the Jimmie Johnson Foundation for the Samsung Helmet of Hope that NASCAR champion Jimmie Johnson will wear in the upcoming Pepsi 400 race in October 2010. The Jimmie Johnson Foundation has already been incredibly generous, awarding a $10,000 grant to each of the twelve charities and increasing awareness about each of our missions. We are incredibly honored to be among these important causes. And we are equally honored to now have the opportunity for additional awareness and funding to help further our passion — an END to SMA!!!
WE. CAN. DO. THIS! Together we can END SMA — one vote at a time!!!
PLEASE VOTE: It’s really this simple –>
- You can vote once EVERY DAY from now until September 29th at 5 PM EDT
- Go to VoteForSMA.com, select the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation, enter the two security words, check the Official Rules box, and then click “Vote Now!”
- That’s it!
- And…don’t stop there — SHARE!

We received Eli's quilt from Cole's Quilts this week. If you haven't read about the quilts, go check our their website. (if you cross-stitch, please consider volunteering!) It is something we will be able to treasure forever. Two of the squares are extra special because they were made by members of my SMA family. The 3 giraffes in the car was done by MJ and Brenda. If you've been a frequent reader of my blog, you should know all about MJ by now, but if not, you should spend a little time reading her story. She is one of the most amazing people I've "met" and I hope I can give her a huge hug in person one day.
