Helping AvaGrace

Wednesday, May 16, 2012

One of our favorite places to play and unplug is at the fun and creative Unpluggits in Edmond, Oklahoma.

With your daily admission, you get free paint and play all day long. Plus, you can choose extra crafts to complete for an additional fee.

On May 25th, Unpluggits is hosting a fundrasier for the beautiful AvaGrace.

Avagrace (aka "AvaCake") is a beautiful and fun-loving seven year old girl with lots of love in her home from her brothers, sisters, and parents. She's had seizures since she was five months old, but they started becoming more frequent and severe around the age of four. Then last year, it got even worse. She's been diagnosed with Lennox-Gastaut Syndrome, a catastrophic form of Epilepsy that causes mental retardation. Fortunately, she has medical insurance which covers a lot, but not all of the cost of her surgeries and medication. Plus, insurance doesn't cover her medical equipment like helmets and special beds made for little girls who have seizures.

Half of the sales at Unpluggits will go towards Avagrace's medical expenses on May 25th. If you're thinking of  doing a craft, May 25th might be the day to do it. Face painting and carnival games will also be part of the fun! Included will be a Cupcake Walk with cupcakes provided by Heavenly Cakes. Yummm.....I do believe that walking in a cake walk burns off any calories that might be consumed.

       Dad's Deployment Day

As if Mom doesn't have enough on her plate, Dad's busy serving our country overseas for six months.  In spite of their extra burdens and sacrifices, Avagrace and her family keep smiling with a sense of humor. You can tell this family knows how to count their blessings! Let's help them count even more blessings and make this a special day!  

I personally know AvaGrace's mom and dad thanks to the incredible organization Hope Link OKC that Brian and I are involved in. Hope Link is a local non-profit organization that connects mothers who have children with rare or undiagnosed disorders while providing encouragement, hope, and support through fellowship and prayer.

My kiddos and I will be at Unpluggits on Friday, May 25th having a wonderful time playing and crafting all in honor of AvaGrace and the Spencer family. Will you join us? Why not? 

Unpluggits is the perfect place for you and your kiddos to unplug on a hot summer's day. 

If you aren't local to the Oklahoma City area or you'd simply like to make a donation to the Spencer family's medical bills, please contact me directly at for donation information. 

Thank you in advance for your support of this incredible family. Remember, anything you can contribute will make a difference to this family. 278 of a year of writing.....
