Danyel, That is soooo neat. That is such a great idea. I'm sooo happy that all the teams have been so supportive.


And honestly, Jaime, it's the least I can do. If we all use what resources we have, we're just doing our part....it just so happens that I'm the one with the baseball connection...I think anyone would do it. If I was really good, I'd go back to school, become a researcher and find the cure....then I'd be "a blessing!" [:D] And besides, this is my "outlet" for all the negative energy I possessed for months due to my (and all of our) inability to have fat healthy babies and/or worry-free pregnancies. I was walking around so angry and sad all the time. As you can see...there was a lot of energy in there. [:p] And I have done charity events before- it's much harder to volunteer to take on an inaugural event, especially when you have no idea what you're doing. So, thank you and everyone else on this board, working so hard behind the scenes for ourselves and the rest of our "PE sisters." I feel, as long as we're working to have our voices heard and save lives, no suffering or loss is in vain. I think that helps a lot of us get through the day. God bless you all!

Alli.... you truly are amazing! I am in awe over all that you've accomplished. I did follow your lead and contacted the Portland Beavers and they've been great. They are donating tickets for auction, and I am in discussion with them about having a table in the concourse at the stadium's Mother's Day event on the 8th. We're talking about selling tickets, and part of all proceeds going to the PF, along with passing out literature and recognition on the matrix board, etc.

One question that just came from the Beavers is they need our tax ID number - can I get that from someone?

Thanks!!!

I just wanted to let you all know that Spring Training is winding down and next Tuesday I will be getting ready to make the drive for the regular season (to Toledo or Detroit). My husband will only be able to get autographed balls from teams he may be playing in April, which is limited (and only IF he makes the big league team). So, I'm sorry, I won't be able to take any more "requests." However, I still encourage you to call the community relations person at any sports team...every one we've approached has been awesome so far. I will be collecting autographed items throughout the year to use in future PF events. If I've already emailed with you and told you I'm getting you something....I am. Should have everything mailed out the first week in April, if not before. Good luck to you all!

Hi Jaime,

Great! Thank you. I will email you today. And truth be told I am not the biggest sports fan — this is evidenced by totally forgetting that Portland does indeed have a minor leage baseball team. Oops! So I will contact both the Portland Beavers and Portland Timbers and see where that gets me.... stay tuned.

Hi Danyel -

That is great about the Timbers! Why don't you email me what you want the letter to say and I'll put it on letterhead and fax it to you or email it to you.

Thanks,

GREAT idea about partnering with baseball teams. If only Portland, OR had one! BUT, I am looking into a partnership with our lovely Portland Timbers soccer team. All donation requests must be typed on the organization's official letterhead. Any chance I can get an electronic file of the PF letterhead?

Here's an update: The Minnesota Twins have just jumped on board. The guy I spoke with is going to put our event on their scrolling message board, give us a ticket package for a raffle and consider anything else Jaime needs (when she calls him-Jaime, I'll be emailing you his information). [:D] He said even if an involved member hadn't been a part of the "baseball family" they'd still probably help our cause. I highly encourage any of you that I haven't spoken with about this, to call your local major league community relations department and ask them to help out. So far, we have committments from the Tampa Bay Rays, Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers, and Toledo Mud Hens (minor league). It is encouraging that everyone I've contacted has been VERY eager to help us. So, ladies, don't forget to support your local team this year...they've been awesome about supporting us! [:p]

Thank you so much. That was sweet of you to say. I adore my husband. Baseball is awesome...traveling for it stinks, especially with two kids. Doug has really supported me in my passion for the PF. I really believe that everything happens for a reason and I believe God lead us down this path to help others. Hopefully we'll be able to get all the teams involved in future events. Baseball fans (the ones I've met anyway) are amazing when it comes to their community. Please let me know if you can think of any other ways we can help. Thanks again for the compliment! (I'm having a "bloaty" day...so you made me feel better!) [:D]
