Elmo Visit's Story Time for a Cause

Birthday Girl, Miss MaryLast week we had a special Story Time Celebration.

It was the annual Miss Mary Birthday Celebration.

Every year on her birthday, she has a huge party with cake and gifts for the kids.

It's always a huge celebration, but this year's celebration was fantastic!

For the first time ever, she shared her birthday celebration. And she shared it with a wonderful little girl and for a great cause.

Meet Faith.

Faith and her family live in our neighborhood. She is an absolutely adorable girl and she has Cystic Fibrosis. Faith and her family were raising money for the Atlanta Area Great Strides Walk-a-thon that took place this weekend.

As part of the birthday celebration, and to help raise money for "Team Faith." there was a very special visitor. Elmo was there!

The Story Time event was a huge success, there were over 300 moms, dads and kids there and Team Faith raised over $400 from this event alone and $7500 total.

Sam was very excited all day about seeing Elmo. Every where we went that morning, he told people about seeing Elmo. We even got Miss Mary an Elmo birthday balloon. And when the time came for his picture, he was beside himself with excitement....

    That slideshow was both beautiful and heartbreaking. How special for Miss Mary to share her day with Faith!


    My children both loved to point to and talk about their favorite characters. However, they never wanted to be THAT close to them.

  2. Sounds like a very successful charity event! Love Elmo and that CUTE!!

  3. Oh my gosh...that Elmo heart is breaking and smiling!
