Last weekend, between the birthday parties, my mom and I spoke at all of the Masses at our church about Erin's Women's center project. Our pastor has been very very supportive of Erin's project and we feel very lucky. Mom is wearing the outfit Erin gave her and I was sporting my Moroccan sandals and ring. After Mass we had a table set up with a poster board of Erin's pictures and a slideshow running on the back wall using the LCD projector. Everyone was VERY generous. I won't spoil Erin's good news by saying the number, but it was very inspiring to see how much everyone wants to support my sister and the work she is doing.
You can still donate here if you haven't had a chance to do so yet.
