March of Dimes


On May 12th I will be walking for the March of Dimes.  I have set a personal goal of raising $100 in donations.  If you're interested in sponsoring me, click this link and you will be taken to the March of Dimes website that has my name on it.
They accept international donations, too.  The March of Dimes is putting on "Walk America" in order to raise money to help save babies' lives.  Premature births are the number one cause of infant death.  I'm doing this to get in better shape myself and to help raise money for those babies that need help!  Thanks.

I've been lurking lately, so thought I'd better de-lurk once in a while to tell you how much I enjoy your fractals...they are awesome!

Hi BeadBabe,

I've gotten a little behind in blogging, so I am sorry that your comment sat here for a few days! Thanks so much for watching my work, it means a lot.

I've thought about your bead work and sometimes I wonder if you can bead a fractal pattern. Maybe I should get into making patterns for beaders. Who knows, maybe I'll try beading myself! I'm just afraid I'd mess it up. I wasn't outstanding in Home Ec. in junior high school. I sewed a couple pillows, but they weren't quality material. :)

A lot of luck in your fund raising and in the walk. ;-) Have a nice saturday, the 12th.

Runnerfrog, thank you so much for your big donation! You've helped me come a long way towards reaching my goal. I really appreciate your help. *hugs*

Anything can be beaded, stacey, but would anyone really want to?
Fractals are so beautiful on the monitor, with the light behind them...I don't think beading them would be an improvement.
(but then, I've seen very few photographic portraits I'd trade for a good watercolor or oil I'm a bit of a traditionalist in some areas.)

Dear March of Dimes supporter,

Your help is needed!

You may have heard the news …WalkAmerica is now called March for Babies. Our new name makes it very clear who we’re walking for ― all babies.

Now we need your help in getting the word out. Whether it’s in a blog, an email to friends or by putting this badge on your website … every mention of our new name helps.

Visit our Web site at for our new logo and other materials to help us spread the word.

While our event name is different, our mission remains the same. March of Dimes is still the champion for babies – raising funds needed for research and programs that make a difference in the lives of babies and their families.

We appreciate your ongoing support. Please don’t hesitate to e-mail us at if you have any questions about our new name or our event.

One day all babies will be born healthy, but we have to walk to get there.
