What is BIG? Dwarfism Advocacy

As you may know, our son Max was born with Achondroplasia, the most common form of Dwarfism.  This blessing has made a significant impact on our lives and we want to help give back to support our local chapter of the Little People of America.  Our goal is to raise $10K to support the needs of this community which has made such a positive impact on our daily lives.

We are very passionate about this organization, which is a part of the national Little People of America, Inc. (LPA) that provides support and information to people of short stature and their families.  Short stature is generally caused by one of the more than 200 medical conditions known as dwarfism. LPA welcomes all 200+ forms of dwarfism.  
Our goal this year is to partner with you to raise $10,000 that will be donated to directly the Northcoast Chapter of the Little People of America. No amount that you give is too SMALL or too BIG!
100 % of all proceeds collected by us will be presented to the District 5 Chapter.
