This was the 4th year that we celebrated Kate's Birthday with a fundraiser for Dell Children's Medical Foundation. Kate is now nine-years-old and doing great, but when she was six-months-old she had surgery to rebuild her skull to correct a condition known as Sagittal Synostosis.
A few years ago we established the "Kate Singer Endowment for Cranio-Facial Research". We donate 5% of all speaking fees I earn in my career as a professional speaker to this fund and a similar fund at Rady Children's Hospital in San Diego.
Each February we ask our friends to help support this cause with donations of any size. Donations from $10 to $1000 were pooled together and we surpassed the fund raising goal for 2011 of $3000. This is the highest level in the four years we have been hosting this fundraiser.
THANK YOU for your support. The financial contributions and the "good vibes" sent by the readers of this blog help make a difference for other kids born with cranio-facial abnormalities.
(There is still time to donate!)
Have A Great Day
