Spring for SIDS

I received this email today and wanted to put it out there for all of my friends and family to see. If you think the place you work or some where you know of would be interested in hosting an event, PLEASE pass this information on.

SIDS is such a horrible thing and it affects 2,500 infants in the US every year. Through research, maybe a cure/cause can be found so that the number of infants that are affected can go down. Thank you to all who are able to contribute in any way.

We need your help this year more than ever. Please sign up to host a SFS event. Order your cards with stickers attached today. Provide one to each person in your organization who gives a minimum $5 donation. What a fun way to raise money for SIDS research and to raise awareness about SIDS. Most events are held in memory of a particular infant.

If you are unable to host an event this year, please sign up for the Friends and Family program. You donate $100 and receive 20 cards/stickers to share with loved ones. (No paperwork or record keeping.)

On April 24 people all over America will be wearing their spring outfits and their Spring-for-SIDS Stickers to show their support for the fight against SIDS. We need you to be a part of this nationwide SIDS awareness and fundraising campaign.

Thank you for your consideration. Can you be a part of the 2009 SFS campaign?
