raising hope (no, not the tv show)

Happy to have logged in this morning to see that Team Jovie has now raised $1,000 towards Rett Syndrome research in Australia! THANK YOU!

I’ve never done any fundraising before, so reaching our goal so quickly is awesome and I couldn’t of done it without my family and friends (new & old). The Run4Fun isn’t until November 4, so we still have heaps of time to raise more awareness through October (Rett Syndrome Awareness month) and to maybe raise a little bit more over our goal :)

We’ve been busy little bees over here – we had the fantastic opportunity to be in our local paper! A couple of weeks ago I sent an email to the Rouse Hill Times about teamjovie.com – the next day I did a phone interview & the day after that their photographer came out to see us! Here were are on the website’s front page –

And in print –

The full article is online here if you want to have a read :)

I also made a bunch of Rett Syndrome awareness cards via moo.com and they arrived yesterday –

I loved the Purple cards but wanted to use my own Jovie photos and design to tie in with our Team Jovie website. It’s been something I wanted to make so I can hand out a little bit of info to friends and strangers whenever they ask me about Jovie (even some dr’s haven’t heard of it before.. yikes). The back has more info about RS but the front is all Jovie!

It’s been a huge deal for me to reach out and do these things because I still have the tendency to just go hide somewhere when I start a new project. I’m still working on it, but I’m very proud to have done what I can, so far.

Go Team Jovie!
