I just received an email from Icing Smiles and am very eager to get started and do all I can to this cause. I'm not sure how many people know of the program but when I saw it on a thread here I immediately volunteered. A friend of our family had muscular dystrophy and battled it until the age of 32. He wasn't expected to live this long after the age of 16. He was truly a person to be proud of. His strength and determination to be positive for his family impressed us. This being my main motivation as I know the toll it takes on a family not being able to focus on the celebration of a birthday or of the siblings. I was hoping to possibly find other Icing Smiles volunteers in the Maryland area to put together a fund raiser. Thank you in advance for reading and any consideration or help! Have a great day!
craise79 is a volunteer coordinator. You probably received your email from her.
thanks so much! I think I will PM her to see if she might have other advice as well
Also, Icing Smiles is one of the two charities we will be donating money from the National Capital Area Cake Show to. (www.cakeshow.org).
