Hugs-o-War

4th of July 064

“I will not play tug o' war. I'd rather play hug o' war. Where everyone hugs instead of tugs, Where everyone giggles and rolls on the rug, Where everyone kisses, and everyone grins, and everyone cuddles, and everyone wins.” ~Shel Silverstein

Lately, Emma Sage has been real into Shel Silverstein [Makes this Momma's heart soar, as I adore reading the incredible poetry of Shel Silverstein] and she is now at a reading level where she can pick up his books and read his poems with realitive ease.

Shel Silverstein is one of my favorites! I think I might still be able to recite the one that starts, "I cannot go to school today said little Peggy Ann McKay" hehe

I'm a long-time reader of your blog. My name is Sarah and I'm a college student who works with special needs kids. I also follow about 200 blogs and I'm sending them all the same message: I'm here to tell you about an incredible opportunity that you have the chance to be a part of!

Chase Community Giving is awarding $1 million to 5 charities! The Gwendolyn Strong Foundation is working to find a cure for Spinal Muscular Atrophy - and they could use the money!

Fast Facts:
- SMA is the #1 genetic killer of infants under the age of 2
- 50% of those diagnosed will not live to see their 2nd birthday
- kids with SMA lose the ability to sit, stand, walk, talk, eat, swallow, and breathe
- 1 in 40 people is a carrier
- the National Institute of Health says that SMA is the #1 CURABLE disease if given research funding
- right now there is NO cure and NO treatment

Want to change that? Vote for the Gwendolyn Strong Foundation on the Chase Community Giving app on Facebook! You have five votes to tell the world that you want a CURE for SMA!
