I need your Votes for a very special reason Nicole

please_vote-sI do not normally ask for things like this, but I need all of your help to make something very special happen. It will only take a moment of your time to click a link and Vote for a great cause.

Here is the story… A couple of months ago I decided to get myself a part time job outside the home in addition to me being The Party Animal and sharing all my ideas with you for your little ones. The job as an Activity Assistant that I have wanted opened up at a local Nursing Home by me and I landed myself the job.  I work in the skilled nursing department which is where most residents will spend the remainder of their lives.

Me and the other staff in my department work very hard at bringing them lots of activities to keep them busy and bring smiles to their faces. The problem is the budget for doing such activities is next to nothing – sad but true. So of course we have to be thrifty and a lot of us will use our own money to buy things to make this happen.

gingerbreadOne of the areas we lack is in the decorations for the holidays. I was online at Shindigz one of my favorite party supply shops looking at Christmas/Winter Decor because we would like to create a Gingerbread Theme for them, but unfortunately the items are too much for us as far as the budget we have.

I contacted Shindigz about a possible donation and they told me about a program they have called their Fun it Forward Party FUNd where you submit your story and have to get votes to win money for your cause to go shopping in their store.

I cannot tell you how much we could use this for the residents. Being able to have such awesome party decorations for the holidays would make these folks so happy and give them something extra to smile about each and everyday they see them. So that is why I am asking for your help to make this a reality.


I really want to make this happen, but I need your help to do so. The more Votes I get the better my chances are to win this for them.

If you have parents in a nursing home you will understand how important this is for them and one day we may be in one as well. This job is so rewarding for me knowing I am making the last days in their lives special and if I can pull this off it will make me so very very happy.

Please just take a second and Vote – please please please!!! I am so thankful to Shindigz for offering this opportunity and will be so thankful to all of you who will help make it a reality!!

You can vote once a day as well!!

If I make this happen you know I will share photos of it all too!!

Click here to votenursing home And just to show you some of the things we do – My daughter and her BFF drew up lots of pictures and baked a ton of cookies for the residents a couple weeks ago. I took them in on my day off to visit with them along with my dog Cupcake. It is just the little things that make them so happy and they deserve it – they have lived their lives and are still doing so – just in a home now because they cannot care for themselves anymore on their own.

So please just take that second to Vote !!!

Thank You so much, xoxo
