Hoops for Heart and Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser

Ok, I normally do not do this but.........

The twins came home yesterday, talking about how they need to help people.

I had no idea what they were trying to tell me. They were both talking so fast.

They got frustrated with me and shoved some papers into my hands and said...

"Mommy, we HAVE to help!"

Their school is having a fundraiser to fight Heart Disease.

Jet and Kaileyne will be joining the Jump Rope for Heart and Hoops for Heart Campaign for the American Heart Association.

While I was reading the information for the fundraiser, I saw this:

My children's generation is the first in history that is projected NOT to outlive their parents!!

I was shocked! I had no idea.

So, I agreed to set up their webpage on the American Heart Association website.

Jet's Hoops for Heart

Kaileyne's Jump Rope for Heart

They both have set a goal of $200 each.

I will be setting both Kaileyne and Jet up with a donation from Mommy and Daddy of $25.00 today.

I am hoping that maybe my friends could help them out too.

The American Heart Association's online fundraising website has a minimum donation amount of $25.00. If you want to donate less, that's ok. You can donate to me via Paypal ( and will transfer the money to the AHA every time I get $25. Or email me and I can send you my home address, if you want to send a check.

Every little bit will help. And I want to help them reach their goal.
