Helping Brooke with beanies

I would just like to add to your article that you had in the paper last week about Brooke

I would just like to add to your article that you had in the paper last week about Brooke fundraising that myself and my three children were in Overwaitea in Fernie on Saturday 29 and Sunday 30 selling my mom’s and my beanie baby collection to raise money in support of Brooke. My mom and I were collecting these Ty beanies for years and sad to say my mom passed away to lung cancer and one night I had a dream and in that dream my mom had come to me and said you need to help this little girl. I knew what she meant and so I decided to sell the entire beanie collection and I am very happy to say we raised a total of $500.

Thank you for taking the time to read my story and I do hope you may be able to use it towards raising money for Brooke to encourage more people to help this truly amazing family.
