Show us your life - Favorite Charities

I have always had a huge heart for children.  Babies, toddlers, "big kids", you name it - they get to me.  I love trying to figure them out, helping, supporting and above all, loving.  After I had Emma, that only increased to say the least.  

We now raise money and awareness for the March of Dimes by specifically walking in the March for Babies event!  I am so thrilled we can make this event a part of our family and we are so blessed that we have family and friends that support us as well.  We are looking forward to walking again in April!! 

I also have a huge passion to support the NICU at Children's hospital that did so much for us.  I vividly remember them trying to save Emma which I am forever grateful for.  I enjoy bringing baskets of baby things to them so other families in the NICU can utilize them.  I have known a few families in there on the infamous "NICU Rollercoaster" and I only want to help them. 

And of course, last but certainly not least, our church.  It is such a wonderful church that Josh and I have so enjoyed going to over the past 4+ years.  If you are in MN and looking for a church - Eaglebrook is a wonderful place! 

Well I look forward to checking everyone else's charity's featured on Kelly's blog!  Such a great idea!

Have a great weekend!!  I am looking forward to going to church and dinner with Jayson, Bethany & Hopers!  Then Bethany and I are going to enjoy the night watching the Eclipse trailer!!!  I cannot wait!!! :)


  1. I found you on Kelly's Korner, and just wanted to say YEA for support for the March of Dimes!

  2. Hey Angie,

    I'll have to talk to you about Eagle Brook sometime and see if you know any of the pastors. Our favorite nurse for Matthew at Children's NICU has a husband that is a pastor at Eagle Brook. We have never met him of course, but his wife is just a sweetheart. I remember her sharing with us that he worked there. I'm not sure what campus he is at though.

  3. That's a wonderful charity. And such a great idea to bring baskets to the NICU parents! I bet they really appreciate that so much!

  4. Hey Angie- there's a little blog award for you on my blog today. :)


Thanks so much for your sweet comments!
