The Final Numbers...

BabyLegs-4BabyLegs-2

The BabyLegs Campaign is officially over and although they are still coming in -- and we are gladly accepting them, we are done counting and have some final numbers to share with you.  Adam and I are both so grateful to each and every person who donated to our campaign.  When originally posted this campaign I was thinking we may be able to collect a hundred -- and I am so stinkin' happy to say that we raised over Two Thousand pairs of BabyLegs.

BabyLegs-3


Not only are we excited to touch the lives of ill children and their families at the A. I. duPont Hospital for Children but we are also so happy to do this in the memory of our little boy -- our little fighter!  We miss him so much and this is one way we can continue our healing and find joy in suffering.

You all are amazing.  I will be sure to take lots of photos of our special day at the hospital.

Congratulations, Gavin. Even from Heaven you're making a difference.

I can't wait to see the presentation of all of these baby legs. I'm going to lobby that they rename a wing after you. :-)

Awwww...it makes me smile to think of all the little legs that'll stay warm as a result of your efforts. What a lovely tribute to Gavin to bring comfort to other kids at Dupont. Well done!

Yeah! That's terrific!! Most of the thanks should go to you for organizing this, collecting and counting the Babylegs and bringing them to the hospital. It couldn't have been done without you. Hopefully it will inspire people to collect things like that for their local hospitals.
