Pay It Forward...Rock the ONEder Fund.

I would really like to share this link with every.   Some of you have hear me mention Kelle Hampton's blog before.  She is a wonderful woman who expresses her thoughts and emotions through photography.  She has two beautiful daughters Lainey and Nella.  Nella, the youngest, will be turning one and has DS.  In honor of Nella's upcoming birthday, Kelle Hampton started a donation page with the National Down Syndrome Society [NDSS].  Her original goal was to raise $15,000.  Right now, she has raised over $40,000 and this is all with reader donating on average just $5.00.  It is amazing how $5 adds up to so much.

Pay It Forward. . . Rock the ONEder Fund

On the NDSS donation site, Kelle writes:

To celebrate the anniversary of the beginning of this beautiful journey and our enchanting little one, we are asking you to join with us in supporting the NDSS. Please help spread awareness and create more opportunities for the world to understand that we are more alike than different.

The National Down Syndrome Society works to create a culture that fully accepts and includes the 400,000 Americans with Down syndrome. Your tax-deductible donation will help support the vision of a world in which all people with Down syndrome have the opportunity to enhance their quality of life and realize their life aspirations.

We are grateful for your efforts, and hope you will take great pride in the important difference that the funds you raise will make. On behalf of the entire Down syndrome community, we thank you for your commitment and dedication.

Even if you do not donate, take the time to read the post or at least enjoy her gorgeous pictures.  It has moved me to tears and the cuteness of all those kiddos is killing me.
