I had several people, some being my sponsors, reach out letting me know they wanted to help with our donation project in memory of Cohen. If you are just tuning in, you can read about it HERE 🙂
It is SO nice that people offered to help. We really believe this project will be a blessing for many, many families. I’ve included a little blurb from each shop owner/consultant that shares why they wanted to help be apart of iPods From Cohen 🙂 It still gives me chills that Cohen touched their lives along with many others.
If any others join, I will be sure to add them to this post and update. So, maybe check back periodcally for other shops! Most will run for the month of May.
along and I’ve seen what a BIG impact Cohen’s little life made on so
many people. I’m SO inspired by your spirit in the wake of such a
tragedy. And I’ve been very inspired by your need to give back to others
who are facing similar situations!”
access to the outside world, whether it be music, games or the internet
is something I know they will appreciate. I can’t think of a better gift
to give them!
Knox and Sloane… I have loved many, many people with broken hearts as
well. None as early as your Cohen though.
27 years of life, I have only heard stories of both grandfathers,
unfortunately never met them though because both are angels who were
taken due to heart attacks. My moms, father, was just over 30 years old
and left my grandma with 6 children, and one on the way. My dads, dad
passed away a little later in life, but was never able to teach his
little boy to drive, or able to see his daughter get her high school
diploma. My dad was only 13 when he became the man of the house.
12 and my mom was taken to the hospital after having 3 minor heart
attacks. After some time in the hospital and stints being placed in her
heart, she was able to leave the hospital within hours of seeing my
little sister play in a State Basketball Tournament..with VERY strict
cheering orders. 🙂 My mom now goes to yearly appointments to have
things checked out and make sure that all is well. With the exception of
a small bump in the road this past March, things have been well.
Sadly, we lost my Uncle Steve after a quadruple bypass surgery and a
very lengthy stay in the hospital due to his heart being not quite
strong enough to recover.
In addition to my family, I have an incredible friend and past
co-worker that was born with a broken heart, and had a pacemaker all of
her life, until last January. At that point, she got the call and
received a heart transplant and is doing much better.
heart failure, Justin. He is 26 years old and has had many, many heart
surgeries in the past 5 years. He has been at University of Chicago
Hospital since April 11th after LVAD surgery. And has a long road ahead
affected my Cohen’s story because I can relate similarly to dealing with
heart complications, although, not nearly to the extent that you have.
I have been a member of Benefits and things like that to assist the
families of people with health issues. But I admire you for doing such a
great thing to benefit all those affected.
an company with natural products! They have quick and easy recipes,
seasonings, breads, mixes and much more that are healthy with no
you in raising funds for iPods from Cohen but until recently have not
been able to. A few months I became a sales rep for a direct sales
company called Wildtree. It’s all natural food products with no
preservatives, MSG, food dyes, additives or high fructose corn syrup.
I have noticed that you’ve written several posts about being interested
in healthy/clean eating so I thought my company might be a good match
to do a fundraiser and giveaway on your blog.
A few also asked about a donation link. That is HERE.
