Vision Walks! Fundraising for the Foundation Fighting Blindness!

My girls are amazing!  I am always proud of them but now more than ever.  They both decided it was time to get involved in fighting for their own cause.  The Foundation Fighting Blindness' Vision Walks to raise funds for research on a variety of blindness diseases and conditions seemed to be right up their alley.  They BOTH committed to doing something they've never done before - establish a "walk team," set fundraising goals, and solicit funds to support their respective walks.

Andrea is walking in Greensboro, NC this Saturday; Roberta is walking in Boston in late October.  BOTH have met their $$$ goals, raising a combined total of almost $4000.00, and both will walk with family and friends.  Andrea and her family made tie-dyed tee-shirts for their team members with the Usher Me In logo on the front.

My only regret:  I can't participate in either walk with them for a variety of reasons, but I will be there in spirit.  I've committed a percentage of my Scarf It Up! sales to this effort through the holidays.  If you'd like to see more of my work, please view my flickr pages, and if you're interested in purchasing anything, contact me via Facebook.  Many thanks to all those who have supported Andrea and Roberta in this effort and who have purchased my creations!
