Giving Back - A Fundraiser for Shriner's - Donation Update

At our last trip to Shriner's Izzy and I paid a little visit to the HR department and saw our new found Shriner's friend, Kay. We presented her with an envelope including the donations and a little letter. Izzy was happy to pass off the money to such a special place. I wanted to share with you the letter that I included. And just once more, say THANK YOU to everyone who was a part of this step in the journey of Izzy's life.

Dear Shriner’s Hospital for Children,

We wanted to take a moment to personally say THANK YOU for everything you do for our precious Israel. We count it a privilege and honor to be a part of your family. We are blessed by this hospital each and every time we come!

We also wanted to say thank you for making our little guy the face of your Christmas card this year! Wow…how special! And the way you did the card, with the wording and pictures was precious. We cried…more than once. It was wonderful to get to give out the cards personally as our Christmas card this year. But even more so to give them to others to send out and receive donations for your hospital! We raised $420 in such a short period of time! We know firsthand that these cards touched many lives! Thank you for sharing them with us!

We wanted to name those who donated money…no matter how small or large the amount.
• Kevin & Melanie Kruse
• Jeff & Mary Ballard
• Don & Sue Turkington
• Jim & Jenny Bettis
• Glenn & Jagene Dorn
• Suzie Doeren
• Sharon DeLaveaga
• Wanda Petipiece
• Jan Steiner

Thank you again…for everything!
All our love,
The Turkington Family ~ Jon, Becca, Rachel, Jaxon & Israel
