NIAW and a Raffle!

April has been a busy busy month for the Lost Stork Foundation! We are working to put together two bowling fundraisers in August, one in St. Charles, MO and one in Newnan, GA and will release more information as the plans get finalized. Meghan is also planning the yard sale for this weekend to benefit the Lost Stork. But the real reason for this blog post is to talk about National Infertility Awareness Week.

As many of you may know, NIAW is a movement that began in 1989 to help bring awareness about infertility to the general public. It usually occurs the third week of April and this year it is April 24-30th. National Infertility Awareness Week is very popular in the infertility community and is recognized with dozens of events across the nation. For more information about these upcoming events, please click here to visit Resolve's website.

The Lost Stork Foundation has decided to join in the celebration of this wonderful week with an infertility-related raffle. The donations from this raffle will benefit the Lost Stork Foundation and help bring us closer to our goal of reaching 501(c)(3) status!

We've received a ton of donations from various businesses to support this event. In fact, we received so many donations that we can offer THREE prizes to give away!
