Over $600 Raised at Alyvia’s Fundraiser
to all who attended the fundraiser for Alyvia Hope at Britton Images Photography Studio
Last Saturday Santa Claus came to our studio to pose with children to raise funds for little cutie Alyvia Hope. Along with all the parents & kids who attended on her behalf Alyvia & her parents were also present. It was such a happy occasion!! And people were so generous….not only were people bringing their kids in for portraits but some were popping in just to donate a few dollars to Alyvia’s cause. Over $600 was raised that day which will be deposited into a trust account for her to be used when necessary. Others are bringing in donations when they pick up their orders. Many thanks to all who came for a portrait & to Santa & Mrs. Claus for their time, Vito’s Pizza in Olde Walkerville for a donation of a $25 gift card to help raise funds. Then there was beautiful mother-to-be Rachel Labbé who decorated the tree to prepare for Santa’s visit, Shannon Gilbert from Flowers by Design in Olde Walkerville who lent us a stunning wreath for a background to Old St. Nick & to CTV for help getting the word out. Pictures of all the kids & Alyvia will be posted tomorrow. . And all this came together in 2 days…I wasn’t even going to put up a tree this year. I am still overwhelmed with the generosity of everyone especially right before Christmas.
For anyone who has been moved by the story of this little girl & would like to contribute to the fund you can visit any RBC Bank & make a donation there. Just say it is a tragedy trust fund for Alyvia Hope in the name of her mother Ashley Taylor. As Tiny Tim said “God Bless Us Everyone“
