Mission 4 Macie - Macie's Rainbow Digi

Hello Everyone!!

I know a lot of the things I post here on my blog are all about fun and crafting!!
Today, is personal...I'd like to introduce you to a sweet and innocent little girl, who loves Jesus and her family with all her heart, who treasures every day, loves smiling, rainbows, dogs, butterflies and ladybugs...a lot like any other young girl...Only Macie has a very rare and hardly heard of, disorder called GLUT1.  Shamefully, I take the fact that I have healthy children for granted...Do you?!?!

Please take a moment to meet Macie


Learn a little about Macie, her family and her Mission:

Sweet Macie is the daughter of my husband's cousin Glenna and her husband John Steele.
They are fighting hard, along side of Macie, for Macie and all the other children who have been diagnosed  with GLUT1 and for those who are yet to be diagnosed.  
They have march in Washington, the have attended Epilepsy Walks and even had the chance for Macie to represent more than 30,000 children in the US with epilepsy as the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana's Kids Speak Up! representative in Washington, D.C. The Article below is in the 2010 Issue 1 of of The Illuminator (a publication of the Epilepsy Foundation of Kentuckiana):

 This summer, John and Glenna will be hosting the 2010 GLUT Conference in Louisville, Kentucky.

My 13 year old daughter, Hannah will be volunteering at the conference as there is plenty of need there when it comes to physical help.  Hannah also wants to give financially and asked me if maybe I could design a Macie Digi.  I did and here she is:

Hi Lori

I've tried sending you an email but it keeps being returned.

What a wonderful gesture and such a heart felt image. I would love to be a part of reaching out to help Macie. Please send me an invoice for the charge of the digi image to jackier@insightbb.com. As a fellow stamper, Kentuckian and a mother and grandmother my heart goes out to your family. I will keep Macie and her family in my prayers.

Thanks for sharing this lovely story of courage. I wanted to share with you a "Charity Select" contest over at www.BabyShopHop.com where you can tell us about a charity that helps children and families. We're hoping to raise $5,000 for a worthy cause.

Feel free to e-mail me if you have any questions...I'm a part of the team over there.
