2nd annual Blood & Cupcakes a success!!

Im finally beginning to recover from my crazily busy weekend, which, I am happy to report, was totally worth all of the hard work. Our blood drive was a success, and Id like to take a minute to re-cap and thank everyone involved.

Thanks to Mike & Amanda Budai for use of their button press, without which we could not have made these SWEET pins to hand out. And thanks to my darling Bethany for her help making the pins the night before the blood drive!

Thanks to Jen & Jeremy Hedges for the use of Modern Formations Gallery for the blood drive. This picture is of the space before it was full of tables and phlebotomists and BLOOD.

Thanks to Moop, Garbella, Enrico Biscotti, Dale McCullough, and Friend or Foe for their raffle item donations!

Thanks to my son, Jaden, for getting up at 6am, loading the car, unloading the car, setting up chairs, putting away chairs, and dealing with a crazed mom all day. He's the best kid ever!

Thanks to Courtney, Deanna, Diana, Ruth, Lynn, Alicia, and Lydia for baking cupcakes (which clearly were being eaten by donors and other attendees!)

Extra special thanks to Nate, for designing our logo, and Lynn & Steve for their help with the mugs.

HUGE thanks to everyone who came out and donated blood, or at least tried to donate. It means so much to me that each and every one of you came out and were willing to give blood to help those in need. It may seem like a small thing, but to the person who needs the blood its so so so very important. Im most proud that our little blood drive continues to turn first time donors into regular donors; getting people on the path to frequent donation is my ultimate goal and proves that one small gesture can do something big.

I am sure there are people to thank who I havent mentioned, and I apologize. This day could not have been possible without each and every one of you.
