Nathan's Fundraiser officially ended last night and our grand total was $5,136 of our $10,000 goal! That is absolutely amazing! I am so thankful to all of the Kvittems friends and family who dontated. That is a huge burden taken off of their shoulder and we couldn't have done it alone.
It was a really rewarding experience, watching how the community came together to support this family. It is a great thing to witness, especially during the holidays. It's hard to think about, the fact that other people may have it harder, that their children are sick, their bills piling up. But instead of dwelling in negative thoughts, there are actions you can take! I just randomly started up this fundraiser for Erin and it grew to a $5,000 weight being lifted! Working through Give Forward was super easy and fun. If you know someone with medical need, I highly recommend checking this site out. You can make a bigger difference in their life than you ever dreamed possible.
Again, thank you to everyone who donated or spread the word. We couldn't have done it without you!
Sidenote: Nathan's counts are currently stable heading into his third birthday. Now if only Pixar would hurry up and release Planes and the NHL would start back up, all would be well in Nathan's world.
