Donations (so far) by Team Sophia!

(I wanted to do this in the "notes" category of the Team Sophia FB page, but discovered there isn't that section on a "page" instead of a, I will continually post updates here!)

I wanted to let you who support Team Sophia through t-shirt purchases and donations, what we have done with the money we've raised thus far. We want you to join us in the the joy we've received in giving and living out our mission to comfort and encourage those in-treatment for cancer. I hope there will be much, much more in the future so we can keep providing comfort to those in this difficult and challenging situation.

Please let me know if you have any of these days, hopefully and God-willing, we will be an official 501(c) or the like!

Total Raised so far: $2,689.26 (AWESOME!!)

Total Donated so far: $1,430

$100 Toys R' Us Gift Certificate to Child Life Specialist at MDA Proton Center

$1000 Donation to Sarah Fernandez, who is riding with the Texas 4000 team in Sophia's honor

3 parking chips for families being treated at Texas Children's

2 Comfort Kits (soon to be 3) to those currently in-treatment for cancer

This may not seem like very much. But I've seen the eyes and heard from those we've given to. You feel the magic of love, hope and comfort and I am so honored and humbled to be a part of it.

This is only possible because The Lord has done great things for us. And always, by His Will and Power, we are filled with joy and enabled to pass it on to others!

Go God and go Team Sophia!

That is so awesome, Amy, praise God! Thank you, Vogel family for being a witness for Jesus Christ to so many!

Congratulations! I know it's not directly to Team Sophia, but you can theoretically add $50 to your total, as we donated what we could to Texas Children's in Sophia's honor. I ditto Ms. Christine's remarks!
