Two Great Causes

4:30 AM





If you read my 5 for Friday post a few weeks ago I talked about a cause that I donated too.  At the end of this post I’ll talk about it again because I really want to get the word out there, but I wanted to start off with the story of a little boy who’s name is Seth.  You may or may not have seen my post on my Instagram last week regarding why today is so important!  You can follow his (well his parents are writing it) blog here.  Seth has SCID which stands for Severe Combined Immune Deficiency.  You can read the post about the #wearyellowforseth campaign here.  He also asked everyone personally through a YouTube video here.  He is such an adorable little boy and you really need to watch that video.  It brought tears to my eyes.

So what is this campaign, and why is there so much yellow in the above pictures?  If you watch that YouTube video you’ll see that Seth was saying how on March 27th (today) if you’d like, you can wear yellow to support him and spread awareness about his SCID.  Make sure that if you upload onto Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook that you add the hashtag #wearyellowforseth  he also stated in the video that his mom is going to be printing out the pictures for his room so that he can see how many people are supporting him.  I think it’s a great cause and all you have to do is wear yellow.  So, Seth if your mom is somehow reading this to you, I hope you like yellow cars little guy!  This blogger is supporting you 110% keep on fighting!  To Seth’s parents, I can’t even imagine being in your shoes.  What you have had to go through and reading Seth’s story is just unimaginable.  It takes special people to get through something like this and still keep a positive outlook.  Thank you for sharing your son with the world, he is absolutely adorable and I wish him the best and healthiest life possible!

Now, onto my next cause that I wanted to touch base on and give everyone an update.  If you read my post here a few weeks ago about getting Jan home you already know what this is about but keep reading for the update.  There’s this man named Jan who is paralyzed from the neck down.  He wasn’t always like this.  He has no recollection of how this happened but doctors are saying that his injuries look like the type of injuries you would get if you were hit by a car.  Jan is a Polish immigrant (which is why this hits close to home) who came to America and three years after his wife had passed away.  Instead of going back to Poland he decided to stay and work in America.  His English is not very good so he needs a translator as his source of communication between him and the doctors.  A medical resident of the hospital started a fundraiser for Jan here.  He wants to bring Jan back home to Poland so he could be with his family (he is the only one here in America).  All together they need to raise $300,000, $100,000 of that is to bring him to Poland and the other $200,000 is to make sure he has the proper care to live.  Since I mentioned this story back in February they have raised so much more money.  I’ve been keeping up with the fundraiser just because I donated and would love to see him get brought back to Poland where he will be much happier and won’t be lonely since he doesn’t have anyone here.  When I first donated they only had I believe a little over $4,000 but now they have over $30,000!  Seeing that makes me so happy!

I hope anyone reading this can join in on these causes and help spread awareness for Seth and help Jan go back to Poland to be with his family!

  3. I applaud parents that walk the walk with their children. They live that challenge on a daily basis, bless them all. Coincidentally my post today is a yellow dress, 3 days too late but I'm wondering if I should still hashtag on iG? Better late than never. I will. Thanks for spreading the word Monica. You are amazing! http://fashionablyidu.blogspot.com/
