Fun CHD Nail Fundraiser!!


So Evanna is still doing well and in case anyone was wondering, we're still working towards an extubation. We had a slower recovery then expected, and the last few days have been spent figuring out it was all due to pain. Basically the intentivists underestimated how high Evanna's drug tolerance has become, and it took them awhile to figure out that she just needed more drugs - poor baby. Anyways, I'll do a full update later this weekend, in the meantime I wanted to post about something else.

Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Awareness Week is quickly coming up, and so I've become involved in a few projects to help spread the awareness, as this is the one time of year that has been dedicated to it (though I'm all about creating awareness 52 weeks a year!).
A week ago my sweet friend Alissa messaged me about an idea, and I was immediately on board! She is a woman of so many talents including photography, cake decorating (she seriously has some skillz!), design, and of course being an amazing mother. She also is a Jamberry consultant, and in honour of CHD Awareness has designed some beautiful nail wraps, and has decided to donate her entire commission (which is 30% of all sales) from this party to the Stollery Foundation in our name.

What is Jamberry? They are high quality, vinyl, heat and pressure sealed nail wraps that last for weeks, at the fraction of the cost of a salon visit! No harsh chemicals, chipped polish, or damage to your natural nail. There are over 350 adorable style options! One sheet includes enough wraps to do 2 full manicures, and 2 full pedicures, and still leave you 4 accent nails.

So Alissa and I invite you to join her private Facebook Jamberry Fundraiser (click here for the link) or click here for the direct link to shop without having to join the Facebook group, and indulge in some "guilt free" shopping! The party ends February 6, which should hopefully leave enough room for everyone to receive their CHD wraps in time.

Shopping Note: To buy the custom CHD wraps, you will need to buy a gift certificate and send Alissa the code. She will then purchase and have them sent to you. In order to facilitate this, please join the Facebook Jamberry Fundraiser page, so that Alissa can help you every step of the way. If you are not interested in the custom CHD wraps, then please feel free to shop from just the direct party link. Thanks you!!


  1. I think,this type of activities can be used in crowd fund raising. What do you say? helps donors to donate the amounts without paying the tax which is a great opportunity to donate a bigger.
