Ok blogger land....the time has come for a challenge..............

As many of you know from previous posts, Connor was chosen to be in the Smiles of Life calender for Whatcom County 2008. We are anxiously awaiting the reveal of his page in the calender which will occur on Sept. 9th!!!! The calender is sponsored through an organization called Down Syndrome Outreach of Whatcom County. Each year throughout the country in October the National Down Syndrome Society in conjunction with local agencies puts on what's called a Buddy Walk to promote awareness of Down Syndrome. This year we are proud to put together "Team Little Bug" and walk in both the Whatcom County and Skagit County Buddy Walks. The walks will occur on October 6th in Whatcom County and October 13th in Skagit County. You can go to for more specific details, times and directions to the walk if you'd like to join us for either of the events.

Over the past year and a half so many have asked us if there is anything they could contribute financially to Connor. We have always felt uncomfortable with that subject because God has been so faithful to provide everything for Connor 100%. The time has come where we finally know how to answer that question; You can support Connor in these upcoming Buddy Walks. We have set a goal of $2500 to raise in Connor's name for the upcoming Buddy Walks. The funds that are raised are 100% tax deductible and the moneys are used for the promotion of awareness and education for people with Down Syndrome. We believe that this is a very reachable goal for all of us and a very worthy organization to contribute to. We would be honored if you would choose to support Connor in the walks and give to this most amazing organization.

So the challenge is out...........$2500 in donations by October 6th 2005.
Here's how it could potentially breakdown:
500 people give $5.00 each
250 people give $10.00 each
100 people give $25.00 each
50 people give $50.00 each
25 people give $100.00 get the picture!!!! Give in whatever direction your heart leads and be confident that the Robertson's are thrilled with each and every penny raised to support Connor and other kiddo's like him.

We are currently awaiting instructions on how you can give online in Connor's name but we wanted to get the challenge out so that you could be thinking and praying about how you might like to join with us and help. We will be posting info very soon on how and where you can donate in a secure manner and receive your tax deductible receipt.

We can't wait to see what the supporters of Little Bug will do and we will be so pleased to post the results of the challenge. There are no limits.....nothing is to small and nothing is too big!! Thank you for even considering the possibility of giving and for being part of the process to help to advocate the rights, promote the potential and abilities, and to create a supportive and inclusive community for Connor and for others with Down Syndrome. Watch out comes Team Little Bug!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let's see what we can do!!!!!!!!!!

Postings will follow with instructions on how you can give.

Lovebug Hugs,
