Hello Lewy Warriors!
It's the end of November already? Wow. This year has really flown by, hasn't it? I sincerely hope this post finds you safe, healthy and happy as we round the last corner of 2021. I wanted to take a moment to say how proud I am of all we've done together over the past year. We've faced so many challenges during this global pandemic and still, with your help, we've managed to raise over $25,000.00 for LBD research and grown exponentially. I am constantly proud of and grateful towards this amazing community and am so excited to be a part of this amazing project.
First and foremost, we're so happy to announce that the annual CLBDI Holiday Fundraiser is still live and has already surpassed our first goal of $1,000.00. We love that we are seeing people sharing, commenting and donating from all over. If you haven't checked it out already, please click this link to learn more and make a donation. If you are unable to donate, please share the fundraiser on your social media feeds and/or email it to your friends and family. The fundraiser will stay open until the end of December so there is still plenty of time to share and donate. Together we can do some good this holiday season.
Also, we wanted to let you know that we have already sold more than half of our limited run of CLBDI shirts and the inventory is getting smaller and smaller every week. If you are interested in securing an order before Christmas or making sure that we have your size, please head over to our Community Page and place an order as soon as possible. We will be sending out another round of shirts at the end of next week.
After the holidays have passed and we have settled into 2022, the next CLBDI event will be a second online art show to raise money for LBD research. This time around, we plan to feature a new collection of artwork from our founder Carol and a selection of pieces from amazing artists from our community and across Canada/North America. We can't wait to share the full lineup but, for now, we're excited to announce that we will also be featuring a small collection of original abstract works from fluid artist Megulatorr Makes all the way from Pennsylvania. It is going to be bigger, better and so much fun.
December's blog post will be a short retrospective on the year and will let you know the total amount that we've raised in our annual CLBDI Holiday Fundraiser and through our merchandise. We'll also be able to update you on the new donation total and tell you more about our plans for the new year once the holidays are over.
We hope you are having a wonderful week and are looking forward to the holiday season.
See you in a month.
The CLBDI blog is run by Advisory Board member Joseph Daniel.
