"Hi there! My name is Marla Restaino and I am so very honored to help host a fundraiser for Coping with LM! My daughter Zoey was diagnosed With Laryngomalacia, Inc, at one week old and finding an organization that helps and educates on this topic has been life changing! Coping with Laryngomalacia not only has provided many families with resources and information about LM but they also send out care packages to families whose children have to undergo surgery and need to be hospitalized. Within these care packages are items that can be a comfort to families and children who are going through hospital stays, such as handmade blankets, snacks, toys and books.
Last year I became an Independent Consultant for Usborne Books and More and had been wanting to host a fundraiser where I, with the help of Usborne and Literacy for a Lifetime could donate books to an organization that I felt connected to.
When I saw that Coping with LM was in need of donations for their care packages and that books were a part of the package - I knew this was what I wanted to be a part of!
Here is where you come in! I would love for you to join our Facebook event to hear more stories and join us in spreading awareness as well as asking you to consider donating so we can ensure that Coping with Laryngomalacia, Inc. has plenty of books to fill their care packages with!
Every $10 you donate, will allow us to provide Coping with LM, with one of Usborne's Best Selling Books from the series "That's Not My.."! This series has over 20 different titles and provides children with beautifully illustrated pages that will engage them through visual and sensory experiences! This would be such a wonderful comfort to any child who has gone through surgery or an extended hospital stay.
This fundraiser will run for 2 weeks, during that time, I will be sharing our own story as well as more information on airway defect disorders and Usborne Books and More! Together we can bring more awareness about airway defect disorders and help to fill these care packages with the best books out there!
