Halo Happenings (January Edition)

Like I said in our last post, 2012 is definitely starting off with a bang!  We are so excited about the fun things we have been working.  Here is a quick overview of what we have been busy doing.


First up, is an exciting article that was posted in Parents Magazine in their February issue about Ella's Halo.  It was on page 8, so if you haven't seen it yet, head out to the newsstands and get your copy!  I will post the article here on our blog in February.  They wrote a sweet little piece about Ella and Ella's Halo.  Not only did they put something in their magazine but they also made a $500 donation to us.  What a fun way to help get Ella's Halo's name out there and also to share what our cause is all about to so many others.

We had an awesome turn out of book donations during this holiday season.  I am actually still going through all of them, counting them, boxing them and putting Ella's Halo stickers on all of them.  We are hoping to make this large donation later this month.  So stay tuned to find out how many books were collected in November and December!  Thank you to the sweet little girls of the Lino Lakes Girl Scouts for their book donations!

This week we meet up with the 5th Graders at Plymouth Creek Elementary School.  They made blankets and donated them all to Ella's Halo.  We received so many blankets to help donate to families in the NICU.  It was a great learning experience for the students about volunteering and giving back. We are also going to the work with the PTA at Plymouth Creek later this month.  The parents at the school are going to do a service project and make blankets for Ella's Halo too.  Thank you so much Plymouth Creek!  We appreciate your hard work and know many families will love the blankets too.

And finally, we are in full swing planning mode for our 3rd Annual Bowling for Babies!  We are excited to start figuring out raffles, silent auction and fun activities for the day.  May 12th, 2012 at Park Tavern has been set and we are are excited about a family fun day together raising money for Ella's Halo.  If you are interested in donating or being a sponsor, email me at  Mark your calendars and we will see you in a few months out at the lanes!
