Fundraiser at McDonalds

A dear friend of ours, Kristi, is suffering from Stage 4 cancer - it started in the breast. She has 3 young boys, almost 5, 2, and 4 months old. She has been in and out of the hospital since October. It is a very sad situation, but we know that God is in control and he is the great Physician! I have had the wonderful opportunity to help the family out every Monday with childcare help and other various household things. It has been a blessing to me!

Tonight, a local McDonalds held a fundraiser for Kristi's family. They were giving the family 50% of the proceeds from 11am - 11pm! So we were there today at 12:30 and stayed for an hour, it was like social hour - which I love me some good social time! A few hours later, we were back there for dinner! Lots of friends were there! We had some good dessert too, for lunch and dinner. Its a good cause, it deserves some McFlurries! :) what a great time! They were also taking cash donations there, and they had already emptied out the giant box! It was so great to see everyone there. The place was very crowded and it was insane! The McDonalds staff was super super impressive. They had 30 staff members on hand and this is not a big establisment (its a McDonalds inside a gas station).

As of 5:30pm tonight they had already raised $18,000!!!! God is good!
