Thank You!

I cannot thank everyone enough for coming out to the launch picnic for Caleb's Crusaders. We had a great turn-out & the most beautiful day of the year. Food was great, prizes were plentiful & the kids had tons of fun! I have a long, long list of people to thank but wanted to start with my family & friends who helped pull it all together. There was a lot of hard work and dedication by all to make the picnic a success & I am so grateful for their commitment to the foundation. Special thanks to the Kulikowski family for their help too. They got out there & asked for donations as well as provided the T.V. for raffle!! We all worked together & I believe it proved to be a huge success. 

Feel free to leave a comment on here & tell me what you thought of the day. I will post pictures as soon as I gather them from everyone.Hopefully we can do this again next year!!

Upcoming Events

Good afternoon! As you may know, we are planning a spaghetti dinner next week at the Ronald McDonald House by Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. This day is very special to me because it would be Caleb's 5th birthday, April 6th. His favorite dinner was spaghetti, which we had every Friday night, and that is why I chose that meal to be served to the families at the RMDH. We are currently taking donations for the house. They can be dropped off, or mailed, to 144 Nebraska Street, Frankfort, IL 60423. The house is blue, with a white porch & there is a bin on the porch that is labeled 'Caleb's Crusaders'. We are looking for individually packed food items, snacks, etc, and travel-sized toiletry items. The bin will be brought downtown with us when we make & serve dinner, so it will be picked up around 2:00 PM on Wednesday, April 6th. If you would like to donate, please drop items by that time. Thank you very much for your donation! 

The Launch Party is planned for Sunday, June 5th, 2011 @ Commissioner's Park (Fort Frankfort), 21972 S. 80th Avenue, Frankfort, IL  60423. There will be games for all ages, food, raffles & more! We are currently seeking donations for raffle items. If you are interested in donating, please contact me at & I will give you any information & answer any questions you may  need. 

If you haven't already joined our facebook page, please do! This month Scentsy will be donating all commissions to support the fight on Histio. They have fantastic wickless candles that smell delicious & the cutest burners for them! Please place your order at the web address below to help support the fight against HLH!

Feel free to leave any questions or comments in this blog as well!

Good afternoon! Thank you very much for visiting the website & blog. I am so excited about the opportunity this is going to give us for shedding some light on HLH & all Histio diseases! If you have tried to make a donation using the Paypal account on the website, I am sorry, but it is not working right now. I am working with them to get this resolved ASAP & it should be good to go by Monday morning. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend!
