"Austin's Story!" By Nancy Alexander
Ladybug Wreaths is Hosting a Contest for:
A CUSTOM WREATH Designed Especially for ONE LUCKY WINNER!
YOU can enter a drawing for a chance to win a CUSTOM DESIGNED WREATH just for you. Your wreath could be similar to the one below…or totally different. It is YOUR choice! The wreath you will win is valued at $200! I will even pay the shipping costs! It will be designed especially for YOU in any color, style, or design that you wish! You may ask, "Why are you doing this?" I am doing this to raise money for "THE MARCH OF DIMES; MARCH FOR BABIES", an organization which holds a DEAR SPOT IN MY HEART!"
The winner will receive an extra large wreath similar to the one above. I know a lot of you support worthy causes, and this is certainly one of those. For a minimum donation of $25.00 to the march of Dimes, your name will be entered into the drawing once. For every $25.00 you donate, your name will be entered into the drawing, i.e. for a $75.00 gift, your name will be added three times.
The little boy below, our grandson, Austin Thomas Alexander, now 26 months old, is the reason this charity has changed our lives. You see, Austin would not be with us today if not for the work of the March of Dimes!
Austin, born at 31 weeks, spent 33 days in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Greenville Memorial Hospital. The March of Dimes and their research aided in the development of a new drug, surfactant, as well as other drugs which saved Austin's life as well as the lives of many other preemies.

The drawing will be held the day of the March of Dimes – March for Babies Walk In Anderson, SC, on April 28, 2012. At the walk, we will video me, along with my grandson, Austin, drawing the name of the lucky winner of this $200.00 custom wreath. Then all of the checks will be turned into the March of Dimes that same day.
