Avoid Jimmy John's

Just so you all know--- Jimmy John's is unwilling to provide information on ingredients. I am now avoiding them completely (for myself as well, because I think it's bad business practice).

talk soon!!

Grant's Wish Fundraiser: March 20

It's cool, we don't have so many followers on our blog :)

However, for anyone out there... this is important. On the outskirts of Chicago, we will be hosting our first attempt at a fundraiser. Grant's Wish is to showcase our wonderful children and the wishes for their future. Grant, and the rest of our children, have a genetic disorder called Galactosemia. We are having this fundraiser to (1) help families afford to go to the bi-annual conference (this year in Minneapolis) and (2) help fund research to hopefully find a cure or manage a way to live a better life even with this disorder.

Every parent has hopes and dreams for their children. Most of us found out this disorder existed when our child was diagnosed. Some people caught it quickly and had less complications, some were not that lucky. We hope that our children can avoid or at least manage the complications that come with Galactosemia.

Please join us on March 20 for our fundraiser (please see details on or check out the website to see how you can donate. There are also many incredible donations that are already online for our silent auction.

I will also be picking up 300 pre-printed slips next week and so if anyone wants me to send some their way, please give me your address and I will do that. Hoping to raise at least $1000!

More Logo Designs

Ok... I really went too far with the "rough" thing.... I also made one without the blue wrap-around as suggested. They are both more "cleaned up". Alright. Now what do you think?
Well... I think it's done. I liked this image the best. The rough edges and all. Let me know what you think.

Hey everyone,

I was messing around with some ideas for a logo. I am not a graphic artist so if anyone can come up with something that looks more professional please do. I will not be offended or discouraged. Here are two color schemes I came up with. I was thinking of a hand as drawn by a child. A helping hand. Inside the hand is a rising sun, the symbol of hope and new beginnings. Let me know what everyone thinks. Any suggestions would be helpful.
