I have had the distinct pleasure of working with a little girl named Eliora, Rora as many know her, her brother Asher, and her family, at my healthy.BEing office. She is a sweet & loving baby girl who constantly spreads sunshine. She also happens to have spina bifida along with other related and unrelated conditions.
So in an effort to to help support Rora’s current medical needs, there is a brand new, amazing campaign to help raise funds for this wonderful little girl (and her friends) & her ability to stand! There are tons of benefits to being upright – cognitive development, social development, bowel/bladder benefits, and so much more. All of these are applicable to Eliora and we know that standing will do so much for her. And imagine how “walking”, no matter how assisted, will help her with various areas of development.
Have you all heard of the Upsee by Firefly? This would be an amazing way to help Rora stand and make strides physically and cognitively. The Upsee is going to cost around $500 and it’s going to be released in the US on April 7th,only a week away. The special needs community in the US is so excited – and very thankful that a mama turned her dream into a reality. The goal is to raise $1000: one for Eliora and one for another child, or multiple children, that could really benefit from this super awesome equipment.
One of the ways to help raise the funds is to be a part of a special mini photo-session with two lovely friends, Heather Goodbread of Heather Goodbread / Photographer and Doula and Lovereen Moore of Lovely Portraits & Fine Art have collaborated and put together a little local shindig to help raise funds for the Upsees. Your participation of $100 gets you a mini session (themed around Eliora’s favorite things: babywearing, playing, dressing up) that includes digital files AND a custom silhouette portrait painting. Only 10 slots available. Happening this Thursday, April 3rd in Kennesaw, GA!
The value of this is over $150, so you save some money and 100% of the funds go directly toward the Upsees.
So please help in this effort by participating in this mini-session or giving generous through donating via PayPal at firstname.lastname@example.org! If nothing else, please share this post (or series of posts) as a big help with much appreciation.
We are a community of families walking each other toward #healthyBEing!
