We ColoBloggers* are angling to bring Melissa Ford to a book signing this summer when The Land of IF is available. We’ve got some of the expenses covered, but we are looking to raise airfare for her and her family to travel to Denver.
We hope to raise $1000 ourselves and another $1000 through sponsorship (anyone have connections with a company/clinic that would like to give back to the community?).
Regarding our portion:
- MaryBeth has donated her photography services. (Leave a comment on her blog if you’d like to talk portraits with her, or if you’d like to buy some of her stunning photographs.)
- I am donating an adoption profile review. Contact me if you’d like to purchase this for yourself or for someone else going through the process of domestic infant adoption.
- Kristin is donating proceeds from an Obama DVD she’s compiled. For just $5 plus shipping, she’ll send you a DVD of the inauguration, the first speech, and the festivities of Inauguration Day. All $5 will go toward the Melissa fund. Email her for YOUR piece of history.
- BattyNurse is donating proceeds from a 10-pack of hand-stamped cards, at $15 a pack. You can see her fabulous selection here. Such talent! Email her to order.
Got something to donate? Let me know and I’ll highlight here.
As for sponsorship: got contacts with a clinic that would like to hear the following sentence?
Melissa is brought to you by the super-duper reproductive endocrinologists at
Let me know.
Because of the response to my pottery painting post, I am organizing a pottery painting day for all of my local readers — bloggers or not, fertile, infertile or otherwise, artistic or not.
It’s tentatively scheduled for Sunday February 22nd at 2 pm here, so mark your calendar.
Please leave your email address in a comment (or send it to me) if you’d like an Evite.
Yes, we can bring our own wine. Which will help the creative process immensely.
