Sharing is caring….

Happy New Year everyone! Today I am going completely off the diabetes track with my blog. It will still be a very personal post, but not diabetes-related. My family recently started a non-profit organization, Dreams from Drake. It is in honor of my godson, Drake Ross Pettit, who passed away at the young age of 4. The mission of Dreams from Drake is to provide local children and teens with various forms of support needed to move forward while experiencing the confusion and grief associated with the loss of a sibling or parent. The foundation’s hope is to make an incredibly difficult and painful time somewhat more bearable by providing these children and their families with resources needed to ensure that they go on to live healthy, happy, and productive lives. Next Friday, January 31, 2014, Dreams from Drake will have a Semi-Formal Winter Gala “Taste the Rainbow” (because Drake loved rainbows) so our city, county, and local community can get to know the organization, the Board of Directors, and our mission. If you are interested in attending the Gala, please visit: http://dreamsfromdrake.org/activities-events/ to purchase tickets. Please visit: http://dreamsfromdrake.org/ for more information about the organization. LIKE the organization on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/dreamsfromdrake. FOLLOW the organization on Twitter: https://twitter.com/DREAMSfromDRAKE. And always remember: SHARING IS CARING!
