NILMDTS Gala




Tomorrow night’s the big fundraising gala for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep, a non-profit organization for whom I’ve donated my time by writing some of their documents, press releases and marketing materials. I hope it turns out well and NILMDTS makes a ton of $$$.

As part of the silent auction, I’ve donated an autographed copy of Searching for Spice, two tickets to my book launch party, and naming rights to a character in my October 2008 release. The above image is that of the tickets that will be displayed at the auction. Don’t they look great? My graphic artist friend, Tash, created them.

NILMDTS is an organization of professional photographers who donate their time and talents and travel to hospitals to take portraits of babies who will never go home with their parents. They provide achingly beautiful portraits for the parents who will go home with empty arms. I know, it’s very sad. But the truth is that these parents will have amazing, professional portraits of their precious children. Count your blessings that you have a lifetime to make memories with your children. Some parents only have days or hours.

Great job and kudo's for Tasha. I can't wait to see what she does with my business cards. :)

Wish I was wealthy enough to buy a ticket and bid on this at the auction. What a wonderful prize package.

Don't sweat it. Your character will be a wonderful name - like Gertrude Finklebinder. LOL. Just kidding.

Hey Megan,
I'm so proud of you--that is a very difficult job made even harder by people who don't understand. You and NILMDTS fill a huge need and I'm proud to know you.
As for the tickets and books and all, SO COOL! I'll be with you in spirit and so happy for you! Hope you have a blast!
