Stitchlover we are on our way home from the hospital in MN and I told my daughter about your online name she is sooooo excited to meet you. My mom, who doesn't sew, made her an Angel dress for her wish trip. When I told her about you she said Mom I have to wear my Angel dress!! So hopefully you will see a 9 yr old with Angel on her dress.


God bless you all for giving to such a wonderful and magical place.

I want to apologize that I couldn't make it tonight. I had a family emergency and the meet was the last thing on my mind at the time. Hope everybody had a great time, and raised a lot of money for GKTW>

Event Photos!

Ok so I posted the pics that I took with my personal camera on my Facebook page and also on Flickr and I believe I made the ones on Flicr available for everyone to see. If you would like to email me any pics you took I would love to add them. My goal is too make an album for the team once I get moved into my new house in about two weeks. So if you are interested in sending pics my way just send me a private message and I will give you my email address. Also, if you able to please take any pics you would like from my flickr and or Facebook and if it won't let you then please let me know and I am sure we can get something worked out.

For next years event we will also have a Facebook page in addition to the boards so I think that will be an even easier way to show pics of the event.

Here is the link to my flickr https://www.flickr.com/photos/caseyl...7642772345354/

let me know if you have any questions and once again I truly appreciate all of those who came out today to support Give Kids the World!

Great Photos, wish we had found this thread months ago. Noticed you are July goer's also... We love going to WDW in July and I love celebrating my Birthday at WDW.

Thanks for sharing the Dis Meet photos.

Thanks so much to everyone who made this possible! I had a great time, and I picked up a baby shower gift to boot! I didn't get to say much about this yesterday, but this organization is very close to my heart. I have grown up with and loved children who have only had glimpses of childhood. I'm so glad to have been able to support an organization who makes that possible. I've been with a family who just wishes for a moment when their child forgets about the oxygen and the wheelchair and is just able to be a child, however brief that moment is. I've seen the eyes of the child who is using their wheelchair to dance and feels no different than the child jumping up and down next to them. It is overwhelmingly beautiful. It is no wonder I am so in love with a place that can make that possible. Thanks again for giving of your time and resources to such an amazing cause!

Thank you for sharing this. I'm getting really passionate about this organization because I have an illness and I know what I go through and it breaks my heart that kids have to go through pain and the possibility of not living a full life. It really touches my heart and I can't wait to raise even more money next year!

You're very welcome! It was so fun and I think our next meet will be even better. We came into this as newbies but the 4 of us who planned have even started talking about next year. We are ready to plan and raise even more!

Our first goal is finding a bigger space so more people can attend!

I started a Facebook page for next years event. I thought it might be easier for all of us to chat and come up with ideas. We would love to have people help roundup donations that we can use in the silent auction and raffle. Anyways here is the page please join and let's plan 2015!!!

Is there a reason we can't just use a thread on our DIS meets forum for this? This is why we created that forum, and branching off to another tool or site to discuss planning a meet for members of our discussion forum just seems odd.

A few of the most recent area DIS meets we're arranged and communicated mostly via email, which also felt odd and awkward to me. And exclusionary, as only those who were on that email list would know about those meets. Here on the DIS is where we all are, and where others in the area who are interested in joining will find us.
