Donations and Fundraisers

Hey everyone!
I don't know if Seth has already sent out an e-mail for this or not, but here it is anyway...
Intermountain Healing Hearts (IHH) is an organization designed to give support to families that are affected by Congenital heart diseases.  We are donating $500 of money that was given to us to IHH.  The organization started less than a year ago and already has over 120 members!  They have been a great help to us, and are continuing to grow and help many other families as well.  It was started by a couple of heart moms who knew other families experiencing what they had already been through could use their support.  Because of their humble beginnings, they could really use donations to help finance their ideas of helping these families.  This money could be used for families that need finacial help, care packages, camps and more.  If you would like to donate, please send your contribution to :
 
Intermountain Healing Hearts
PO BOX 581306
SLC, UT 84158-1306
 
Also, for those of you in Utah, there is a 1 mile fun run/walk in Provo on September 6th.  For more information, go to http://intermountainhealinghearts.org/.  Make sure you get a registration form!
 
Thank you so much!

Doing Just Fine

We realize that many of you are wondering how we are doing now that it's been a month from Charlie's passing.  We are keeping busy and happy.  The week after the funeral we had a family reunion in Duschene.  That was a lot of fun with rock climbing, swimming, horse back riding, and of course being with family.  The next week I hung out with my mom in Heber.  We just got back last night from East Canyon where we stayed at a condo and swam and played.  I also auditioned for American Idol on Tuesday with my sisters Ronda and Debbie.  We didn't really expect to get past the first round, and we didn't.  But it was interesting to experience. 
Right now we need to go to a reunion with friends from Massachusetts, and we're running late.  Later I will send an e-mail with information about where you can donate money in memory of Charlie.\
Thank you everyone for all your love, support, and prayers.
