Gavin's 6th Birthday Project

You are invited to participate in Gavin's 6th Birthday project!! Gavin's 4 year old brother, Brian, sat in a small emergency room waiting area with very few toys on the most traumatic day of his life. He didn't know, and neither did we, that it would be the last day he would see his big brother alive. Brian talks about that day - and that room "with not enough toys, Mama" - every night going to bed. It shows us the importance of toys for children to help them through stressful times.


When we thought about what we could do to honor Gavin's September 29th birthday, we agreed that Gavin would want to do something special with his brother in mind. The brother he loved so much. So, we plan to donate appropriate toys, seating and wall panels to that same hospital emergency room to re-do their children's waiting area. A permanent plaque will be placed there saying that it was made possible by our family and the Chasing Rainbows community in memory of Gavin and to honor his little brother, Brian. This is the hospital where Gavin and Brian were born... and Brian will see that waiting room when he comes to the hospital to meet his new sister, Hope, this Christmas.


Ed and I are contributing the first $600 towards this project. You can see the items we hope to purchase and the amount needed for the project by visiting the Chasing Rainbows blog: www.kateleong.com And don't forget, it has been proven by the Chasing Rainbows family that every dollar makes a difference. It all adds up!


We hope you'll join in and make this difficult milestone a little more hopeful. Not just for our family... but for the many children who will visit that waiting room and need a little joy.


Thank you, as always, for loving our family!!
