BENEFITING: Bert's Big Adventure
EVENT DATE: Dec 31, 2012
Bert's Big Adventure is one of the most fascinating charitable organizations ever! Some of my favorite Disney quotes help describe different aspects of what Bert's Big Adventure can do for families of chronic and terminally ill children:
1. Makes dreams come to life, even for a few short days!
"A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep.
In dreams you will lose your heartaches. Whatever you wish for,
you keep. Have faith in your dreams, and someday, your rainbow
will come smiling through. No matter how your heart is grieving,
if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true."
2. Builds beautiful relationships, and builds a family!
“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together... there is something
you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger
than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing
is, even if we're apart... I'll always be with you.”
― A.A. Milne (Christopher Robin) ºOº
3. Their love comes from their heart, and is evident in everything they do!
“How do you spell 'love'?" - Piglet
"You don't spell it...you feel it." - Pooh”
― A.A. Milne ºOº
4. Reminds us that we should take advantage of opportunities!
"Take it from an old spectator. Life’s not a spectator sport. If watchin’
is all you’re gonna do, then you’re gonna watch your life go by without ya."
- The Hunchback of Notre Dame ºOº
5. Believe, believe, BELIEVE!
"Why sometimes, I've believed as many as six impossible things before
- Alice in Wonderland ºOº
These families of children with chronic and terminal illnesses have few opportunities to experience the magic of Disney World, much less escape their daily challenges with their health. Help me, help Bert's Big Adventure in reaching their goal of $11,000 in tribute to their 11th anniversary! No donation amount is too big or too small!
Check out the Bert's Big Adventure video, and then join me in raising some money for some very deserving kids! See some of them in the photos that I've uploaded...
"But if you walk in the footsteps of strangers, you'll learn things you never knew."
