Scarlett's Benefit Concert

Happy Monday, everyone!  No word on the tell-tale MRI, so we are anxiously awaiting the signal to go.  Scarlett has gained 100 grams a day for a few days now, and finally broke the 10 pound mark!  Still a teeny tiny girl, but we're okay with that.

I am thrilled to announce that friends from the school I work at have arranged a fundraiser for Scarlett.  Their Celtic band, Banish The Dogs, will perform at an Irish pub in honor of Scarlett, and you are welcome to come!

Fundraiser for Scarlett
Sunday, January 30, 2011
5pm-8pm
187 South Murphy Ave,
Sunnyvale, CA 94086

Come on out for some fun and music!  We are hoping we will be able to attend, but it will depend on Miss Scarlett's needs for the day.  Either way, it should be a great time!

Just like the blog, any money we receive from this event will be used for Scarlett's care and needs.  We are hoping to be able to donate to a worthy cause in Scarlett's name in the future, once our immediate needs are met.

I wish we lived in Cali instead of Boston, MA!
I think that it is so wonderful that there will be a concert for the littlest butterfly! As always, Scarlett and Her family will be in our prayers!
Good luck with the MRI, we are sending good thoughts and prayers from Bean Town!

I was thinking about other ways for you raise money for Scarlett and found this page:

http://www.giveforward.com/

It's a web page that allows you to set up a fundraiser online. I think this would be perfect for your situation. Once you set it up, you could add the information to you Facebook page and put it out there on babycenter for people to donate to your daughter. I'm glad to see that she seems to be doing better- I've been following your story from almost the beginning and hope everything turns out for the best!

I also noticed you don't have any adds on your page. Here's a step-by-step guide on how to add targeted adds to your page:

http://google.about.com/od/googleblogging/ss/Adbloggersbs.htm

You can get paid for adding adds to your site. You'll get money just for having them on the page, but then if someone clicks on the add you get X amount of money, if they buy or donate to whatever the add is advertising you get even more money. It might not make you rich, but it can at least get you a few extra dollars.

I remember just having the greatest feeling of relief getting to go home. I know it is a totally different situation but it still must feel great!

I am from BBC. I have been keeping up with Scarlett's amazing story. Everyone I know has been praying for her! I am in Georgia, but my very best friend lives in Sunnyvale (small world) and She is going to come to the concert and bring friends! I am so glad Scarlett is doing so well! What a strong little girl :)
