Hello Everyone!

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy 2016 Year!

For those of you who want to venture out with your children on New Years, I have created a list of places that you can go to!

Please make sure that if you are attending any new years parties, that you do NOT drink and drive. Don’t let anyone around you drink and drive!

Have a safe, healthy, and happy year with your families!

xoxo

Jennifer

HELP THE NEVILLE-LAKE FAMILY 

The Hearing has been posted-poned yet again DECEMBER 10th (Very Frustrating)!

However, this will give us MORE TIME to get MORE SIGNATURES!

Please give your full support by clicking on the link below and sending two letters to help make a big impact on the driver Marco Muzzo’s Punishment!

1) The first letter will be sent to Brian McCallion, Crown Prosecutor urging that the accused, Marco Muzzo, be denied bail awaiting his trial on 18 charges of impaired driving and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle resulting in death, and that he receive the maximum sentencing for his crimes.

2) The second letter petitions your representatives in the House of Commons and Parliament for legislative change.

Everything in the link will prompt you what you need to do and you can add your own opinions in each letter.

**Remember to do the TWO LETTERS!
These letters are to make sure that the impaired driver Marco Muzzo gets the full sentence (in my opinion that’s not enough) for what he has done.

Please help! It takes 2 minutes of your time.
Let’s protect future families from being broken from a preventable tragedy!

CLICK HERE TO SEND THE TWO LETTERS

LOOK AT THESE BABIES below! These are someone’s children, cousins, friends, nieces and nephews, grandchildren, students, and neighbours!  Help make a change!

THANK YOU FOR CARING…

Drop the wish card into our magic post box and it will go to Santa!

5 Days ago, we lost 3 beautiful children and their grandfather to a horrible tragic car crash.
Since the loss of Daniel, Harry, Milly, and their Grandfather Gary, everyone has been devastated about this awful accident.

I have been crying because I can not imagine the pain Jennifer & Ed are feeling. No one should bury a child, let alone 3 children.

A lot of people in the community are wanting to help which I think is great!

I have decided to help Jennifer & Ed with a separate fundraiser than the Go Fund Me Account (which main purpose is to help with funeral costs).

100% of the proceeds are going to be used to buy gift cards for groceries, meals, and other things they need.

I have teamed up with some influential bloggers and business ladies who I know will spread the word to make this fundraiser successful.
These amazing ladies are: Fashion Blogger Renata Farbman from Can’t Help But Stare, Mommy Blogger Maya Fitzpatrick from Mayahood, Avital Weig from Made With Love Catering, Mom Blogger Pina Crispo from Chic Mamma, Nicole Mandel from Peachy Buy, and Laura Cannone from Glama Gals Tween Spa.

Please feel free to forward this email/blog post to friends and family!

Whether you donate $5 or $50, anything would be greatly appreciated.

Donations toward Gift Cards can be made here: https://www.tilt.com/tilts/the-nevillelake-grocery-meals-fund

Donations to the Go Fund Me Account (Toward Funeral Costs) can be made here: https://www.gofundme.com/pp544vvc

Please hug your kids extra tight tonight and pray for this family.

Thank You,

Jennifer Stallman

Help Kayla Johnston

10526021_10154417473010080_4625080745326590066_n


Hello Parents,

This post is NOT about Entertaining Kids On A Dime. It is about an amazing mother named Leigh Ann Johnston (who is a part of the Entertain Kids Community) and needs financial help with her daughter Kayla’s illness.

Kayla Johnston is 18 yrs old, and became ill 2 years ago with a rare life threatening condition (EDS TYPE 3 AND SMA SYNDROME) Her bladder shut down, her colon motility slowed, and her stomache doesn’t work.

Here in Canada she has only been fixed her by band-aids. She uses a catheter to pee, and an enema to have a bowel movement.

The money raised will help her family with their costs of travelling to the MAYO CLINIC in the States to receive new treatment. They are leaving soon and it will be extremely expensive. Their goal is to raise $20,000 to help pay their medical bills.

I am asking the Entertain Kids On A Dime community if you can help out any way possible. Whether you can give $1, $5, $20, or $50… any amount will help this family!

Kayla is the type of child who worries about everyone else. She is active in volunteering for the Starlight Canada Foundation where she has raised thousands of dollars helping children with Cancer. Sadly this time she needs your help! Kayla is beautiful inside and out and is a real warrier.

Leigh Ann has also set up a Facebook Group to keep everyone posted on Kayla’s medical updates. You can feel free to join the group and stay informed: https://www.facebook.com/groups/supportkaylajohnston/

Here is the link where you can donate for Kayla!
