Well, we just finished up our 4th  fundraiser for our JDRF walk team, Kaci's Krushers- and we still have 6 months to go....

Thank you to everyone who supported our family walk team through the purchase of one (or more) delicious butter braids! We sold 70 braids and made $350 for Kaci's Krushers!!  I feel so blessed that I found a small business with such a great product that was willing to work with us (for the 2nd year in a row) as a small family team. Obviously- we can not sell as many Butter Braids as a school, cheer or football team- but Meaghen was still willing to work with us and I am very grateful! Once you have enjoyed your delicious Butter Braid....and wish you had ordered more... give me a call!( I ordered a few EXTRA!)

I also want to thank everyone who ordered from Mixed Bags. This was the smallest fundraiser to date and only brought us $45 - but we are not complaining. Every penny counts and we count every penny!

Schwans Home Delivery was another very successful fundraiser this year! It lasted just over a month and brought our team $200! A big thank you to Julia and Aunt Berber for spreading the word at their school and getting several of the teachers in on this big event. Julia even organized one delivery day and time for all of the teachers at their school. This was the first year we had worked together with Schwans....but it will not be the last!

.....and last but not least....I have to send out a big thank you to my beautiful neighbor, Beth Irwin! She hand made Boo- Boo bunnies and sold them  individually and in groups to neighbors, co-workers and businesses and donated ALL of the profits to Kaci's Krushers. Her amazing product and the gift of her time- rasied $240 for our team! God broke the mold when he made Beth. We love you so much!

Please stay tuned for more information on our upcoming fundraisers. T-shirts are in the process of being designed and we plan to auction off handmade ornaments and sell beautiful, plush poinsettias as the holiday season approaches!!

We know it is still months away- but we would love it if you clicked on the link below and joined our walk team. (it is FREE) It is never to early to show your support for Kaci and the millions of others just like her that are affected by Type 1 Diabetes.

We will NEVER lose HOPE until a CURE is found!

We hope that you are able to join us at the walk on November 13th! Donations are greatly appreciated- but nothing beats the true support of family and friends by being present on Walk Day! Hoping to have our biggest team yet this year!
