I went to make a new donation to <a href="https://www.kintera.org/faf/donorReg/donorPledge.asp?ievent=144384&lis=0&kntae144384=589DFF10531249BFB04059726FFE4E12" target="blank">Baby Miranda's page at the Starlight Starbright Foundation</a>, in thanksgiving for the safe delivery of her sister Stella. I came to think that it might be a good idea to revisit the page and pass the hat every time a new child or grandchild is announced --- or maybe, in Lorcan McIrish's case, when lifesaving surgery is performed.

Miranda's page made $2700 on a $500 goal. That was, you know, awesome. If we, we can all throw in $5 or $10 or $1,000 every time a new announcement comes, and make a few hunnert every baby, we can someday see the total shoot to $5000 or even $10000.

It could outlive us (which is part of the idea of fundraising), and Miranda can continue to grow up, in a way.

So, I encourage you all to participate and share the joy of a safe arrival, and we can revisit this as our broods grow.

And, not to leave anybody out, if you've had a child or grandchild arrive during your membership and participation in this forum, I pledge to make donation when their next birthday rolls around, perhaps grandfathering in some grandfathers.

Excellent idea Edgy.

Here is the direct link to Baby Miranda's page.

A small donation from me in honor of seeing my future kid's heart beating on the ultrasound this morning.

Every bit helps - thanks :)

And congrats on seeing your baby's heartbeat - that's a very cool milestone!

Perhaps an administrator would consider moving this thread to the Permanent Links forum. I had a hard time locating it.
