Join Kay in support of Celebrating the Heart of Soulumination
Celebrating the Heart of Soulumination
I want to invite my family and friends to join me in participating in the “Celebrating the Heart of Soulumination” fundraising campaign for an organization that I feel very strongly about, Soulumination.
As many of you know, my son was born with a birth defect, yet many thanks to our medical community, Seattle Children’s and University of Washington Medical Center, he survived and is thriving today. That brief moment of possibly losing a child, every parent’s worst nightmare, continues to haunt my husband and me. It is serendipity that my path should cross with Soulumination 20 years later. Working at Soulumination, I witness firsthand the overwhelming gratitude and appreciation from our families not only for the photographic gifts, but for the compassion and joy each volunteer photographer brings to a very difficult time in their lives. Between Sue, Mysti, the oodles of dedicated volunteers and Lynette’s bountiful energy and commitment to each family, every day is truly an awe-inspiring day!
Last year, Lynette was diagnosed with Lymphoma. She spent the year fighting the disease like a true champ and today has a clean bill of health. Lynette turns 60 in February and Soulumination’s board has decided to celebrate her renewed health and unwavering dedication to the families we serve by raising $60,000 for Soulumination in honor of her birthday. Each photo shoot costs Soulumination ~ $600.00; last year we served 200 families and that number grows every year as word of our work spreads. Our goal is to receive $60.00 from 1000 people and continue to serve these angel babies.
Please join me in supporting Soulumination’s efforts and honoring Lynette as she celebrates this milestone birthday.
Soulumination celebrates the lives of children and parents facing life-threatening conditions by providing professional photographs of these special individuals and their families, free of charge. The life-affirming photographs of Soulumination are an enduring, positive record of the child’s life, and provide a loving legacy for the children of parents lost to terminal illness.
