Wednesday night we are having a fundraising brainstorming event to discuss some ideas for Rylans trip to China. We have had several calls from people wanting to know what they can do to help fund raise.  I have realized that more and more people are wanting to jump on board to help.  It is amazing.  Earlier today an older lady phoned the house to say she wanted to donate but didn't understand the www. stuff. She wanted an address to send a cheque to.  It was quite touching.  I promised her when we get back that with Christine Woods help we would put an article in the paper telling her how it went in China.  She said that, that would be more than enough for her.  She then went on to say that she was donating because two years ago she had lost a Grandchild at 20 hours old.  She wondered if the baby was like Rylan.  Sad! I would also like to Thank the people who have already donated!  We now have in hand a grand total of $1665.  That is not counting donations that people have promised.   If you live on the Sunshine Coast stay on the lookout there are going to be bracelets for sale in blue that have Rylan's Fight for Sight on them.  Thank you to Kim Moore for arranging that. 
Have a great day
