2 for 2 - for Nella and all the EXTRA special kiddos!!!!




And now a few words from Nella's mommy, the uber talented and highly hilarious and beautiful Kelle Hampton.

::::

This year, we are launching the 2 for 2 Fund--hoping to raise $200,000 by the time Nella turns two. We're more than half way there, thanks to you.  A little more than $75,000 to go.  Every dollar given to the 2 for 2 Fund supports the NDSS whose mission is to to be the national advocate for the value, acceptance and inclusion of people with Down syndrome.  Things are changing in our society, but it's only because people are working hard to change stereotypes, to recognize abilities and to tear down walls of discrimination.

I come to you as a mama.

What does any mom want for her child?  Hope.  Hope for a successful future, happiness, the opportunity to fulfill dreams.

I don't want anyone to ever tell me that my child's dreams are limited because of an extra chromosome.

And so I'm asking you for something. For Nella. For our family. For all these beautiful capable children and their families and thousands of others.

Whatever you can give. A whole 'lotta $5 and $10 donations went a long way last year. We can do it again.
