Nella's ONEder Fund :)

For my friends who have laughed or cried; who have been inspired to be better or love harder; who have been inspired to snap more photos; who have hugged their kids a little tighter; who have been changed as a person, mother, or friend thanks to Kelle Hampton and her blog Enjoying The Small Things, PLEASE consider making a donation to NDSSin honor of Nella's first birthday.

This money will do amazing things for the Down Syndrome community. I read her blog daily for FREE and it is better then any self help book or magazine I would easily spend $5-$20 on. I will gladly give in honor of Nella that cost of a book or magazine to say thanks to Kelle for how she inspires me and lifts me everyday. Can you join me? She is just over $2,000 away from her goal of $15,000. (UPDATE: She raised $15,000 in less than 24 hours. So she just doubled her goal to $30,000!!! The response is AMAZING!! Let's see if we can get her to $30,000! Holy cow!!)

Just look at this face!

Better yet... look at all these faces...

I know I have asked a lot of you guys this year, to donate to pediatric cancer and help me with my marathon. And I am not asking ALL of you to donate, although if all of you who read this do, I will be thrilled. I am asking those of you who have gotten anything from her to blog to simply give it back to her in this way that would mean so much to her.


  1. Thank you, Jill, for posting this. It was an honor to have Cami included in Kelle's blog and I know Ds mamas and papas everywhere feel so blessed when parents of typical kiddos share in our mission of education, inclusion, and acceptance.

  2. You're welcome!! I can honestly say I am changed as a person because of Moms like you and Kelle and the stories you share. I have changed my own viewpoints of the 21st chromosome and the little something extra these children have. ;)
