As of tonight, at 8:59pm, we have 74 t-shirt orders! That's right, 74. Seventy- four shirts that have all of this little girl's information on the back and a copy of her actual birth footprints.
I can't wait until this precious girl is old enough to really know exactly how many people care about her and love her.
And how many people support her, think of her, encourage her and pray for her.
If she's anything like me, she'll be all teary-eyed and her heart will be all warm and fuzzy.
Seventy-four shirts means several things. It means seventy-four of you wonderful, beautiful people will be wearing her shirt and thinking of her. It means the final price for a 2011 Team Morgan Kate shirt is $8.58. It means that from t-shirt orders alone we will be able to donate $92.50 to the March of Dimes. Wow. It also means that my momma has to pay up. Remember her challenge? Well she is now responsible for donating $74.
I have to be honest. I knew people would order t-shirts this year, but I really didn't expect the number 74. I mean most everyone loves a good t-shirt, but we sold t-shirts last year and had over 100 orders and I thought people might just skip this year and use their shirt from last year. And that would have been perfectly fine. But, I was wrong. In a very good way. I decided to do a new shirt because I like any good shirt, I love wearing a shirt that supports my pride and joy, I love wearing a shirt that honors the March of Dimes. And my shirt from last year just doesn't fit the same way anymore -at least, not well enough to wear in public.
So, thank you! Thank you for proving me wrong. Thank you for supporting the March of Dimes. And mostly, thank you for honoring my precious girl!
