What is Shaken Baby Syndrome?

Each year in the United States alone, medical treatment is sought for an estimated 1,400-1,600 babies who have been shaken. Don’t let your child become just another statistic! Tell everyone who cares for your child “Never shake a baby!”

Important Announcement ~ Please take action today!

Dear Families and Supporters;

We are coming to you today with hope for what the future holds for us all.

Our goal for this up coming 2011 vigil was set at $15000. Through all of us working together and working extremely hard, we are only 1/4 of the way to our goal.. I spoke with Disney event planning today, and while they are welcoming us with open arms, the amount we have to have to even think about having the vigil at Disney, providing rooms, meals, plane tickets and park tickets will start at $5000. To even reserve just the meeting place and 10 hotel rooms we have to have $3200.

After much heartbreak as to what we had hoped for for our 5th year, we have to turn down the opportunity as truly we want the funds to fund the families and provide sponsorships for the families. The vigil will be in Florida but not sure where as of yet, however if you can help us meet our goal, please contact us today. It is because of you, the families, and all of our supporters that make this annual vigil even possible. IT is together each year that the funds are raised by purchasing merchandise and our now twice yearly t-shirts that provide the funds for this event.

Just say a little prayer and know we are not giving up, we just don't have enough resources to do so yet to host in the happiest place in the world, but we are not giving up the idea just yet. Keep pushing for this, as those whom have attended all know how life changing and how much emotional support is derived from this event.

Please know the Vigil will be in Florida this year, but the venue is still to be announced. We will announce the location before the New Year as promised.

Thank you for your time and understanding,

Love u all-
Thank You,
