Got Blood?

I wanted to ask you to participate in a very special celebration.  A sweet baby named Amelia Grace Lorang has a birthday coming up (July 28th) and her family is asking people to donate blood this month in her memory.

Obviously, you can do this in any town that you live in... but our church, Grace Community Church in Rochester, is hosting a blood drive on July 16th (this Saturday!) from 9-2.  If you were planning on donating (or not), I was hoping you might do so with Amelia on your heart... remembering God's amazing gift of life as you donate blood to save another's life.  

I know this would mean so much to Amelia's family who will be celebrating her 1st birthday without her this year.  If you are able to donate blood, you can contact the Red Cross directly to make an appointment at 1-800-733-2767.  This is needed even if you come to Grace to do it. 

If you do this in honor of Amelia and to show support to her family, could you please let them know?  They would be so blessed by this. You can comment or contact her through her blog HERE  Thank you so much!


  1. What a nice tribute for Amelia. I wish I could but I'm currently pregnant and thus not allowed to donate.

  2. Thanks! You are so sweet to mention this on your blog!


We so appreciate your words of encouragement!
Thank you! ♥ The Aubes
