Good afternoon Lewy Warriors!
I wanted to pop in before the end of the month and give you an update on everything that is going on here at CLBDI. As previously mentioned, we have surpassed our original $10k donation goal and are as of now just shy of $13k. Our current donation total is $12,981! Wow! Thank you all so much for your generosity. We are creating positive change as a community and to us that is just incredible. We are so proud of everything we have done together and thankful for every single one of you. We have received word that some of the money has already been put to use by Dr. Pasternak and his team in the research lab and hope to be able to tell you more about it soon.
With the $350 raised so far through our Spring Fundraiser and the funds raised from the sales of three paintings from the "Our Emotional Journey..." digital art show, we are actually sitting closer to $14k but those donations won't be counted until the end of next quarter. Hopefully by then, we will have raised even more for LBD research and by the end of the year we will have reached our next major donation goal.
Speaking of the Spring Fundraiser... it will still be live and open to donations for another month and a half so please consider sharing it around to your friends and family. We'd love to beat our Holiday Fundraiser total and set a new record! You can check it out on our "Community" page or by clicking this direct link - gf.me/u/zm5m8s.
Our online art show will also continue to run for a few weeks so please stop by, enjoy the artwork and leave a comment. We would love to hear from you!

As for next month? Well, April is going to be a bit of a quiet month here at CLBDI. March has been so busy that we need a bit of time to decompress, work on some new original content for you and get to planning our summer events. We will still be posting regularly on our Facebook page and updating the website but there will be no new events announced until closer to the end of June.
We hope you all have a lovely Easter weekend and wish you all the best for the coming month.
Thank you again for being a part of this journey with us. We couldn't do it without you.
