Sherwood Christmas Trees
Hello friends. As many of you know, we have many large Christmas trees on our property in Sherwood and you are welcome to come cut one anytime beginning November 25th until December 20th. This year I am hoping that you can help me give some very deserving mothers in the Portland area a little hope...
Over the past four years I have experienced some of the most difficult times in my life... yet during some of my darkest moments I was able to find hope through the organization called Hope for HIE, http://www.hopeforhie.org/
As one of the many contributions to families effected by HIE, this organization puts together annual "Momma Retreats" regionally throughout the US. With the help of a scholarship provided by another mom, I was able to attend last year's retreat and it was truly life changing for me. To be surrounded by other mothers who share in the daily journeys and challenges of raising a child who experiences the outcomes of hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy is absolutely priceless... They will forever be my tribe and continue to give me hope daily.
In lieu of paying for one of our Christmas trees this year, I am asking that you please donate to the scholarship fund set up specifically to be utilized to help mothers here in the Portland area attend one of these retreats.
It costs $150 to send one momma, so let's see how many mommas we can get to a retreat this year
Your gift will last forever; I promise.
from Sherwood , OR donated. Thank you!
