Cards for Amina by Shelly Buller
My name is Shelly Buller and I am a professional nanny in the Bay Areea of Northern California. I hope I can take a moment of your time and share with you something that has been on the forefront of my mind.
As some of you may have heard in the news, Amina Kocer-Bowman, an 8 year old girl from Bremerton, Washington was accidentally shot by a classmate who had brought a gun to school in his backpack on February 22, 2012. Sadly, we hear of school shootings far too often. But this one hits especially close to home for me. Amina is my boyfriend’s niece.
Amina, a beautiful little girl who will be celebrating her birthday soon, loves the color purple, Hello Kitty and basketball, has just recently undergone her 5th surgery and there may be many more to follow. But, she is a fighter. She takes after her two strong parents and big brother. The road to recovery will be long, but she will be lucky enough to walk it with the love and support of so many around her.
Love and support has been flowing in from all over the country. Complete strangers that have heard of Amina’s story have sent cards, care packages, donations, words of encouragement and prayers on a daily basis. Fundraisers have started popping up all over the Bremeton, WA area and the community is doing everything in their power to help.
The cards from around the country have meant so much to Amina and her family and I have started a facebook campaign among my friends and colleagues to encourage others to send cards to Amina.
If you would like to take a minute to drop a card in the mail for Amina, her family invites you to address it to:
PO BOX 2603
BREMERTON, WA 98310
If you are a member of Facebook, you can also go to:
http://www.facebook.com/FriendsofAmina and keep up to date on how she and her family are doing.
Please keep Amina and her family in your thoughts and prayers!

An extremely reliable supply told me Harry Reid will not likely release the tax returns since he’s got not really paid for the whole 10% (of complete “increase”) tithe on the Cathedral connected with Jesus Christ connected with Latter-Day Saints (LDS). : a new religious beliefs he / she conveys with Mitt Romney. In the event that Harry Reid weren’t such a despicable hypocirite he’d release the tax returns and so the Bishop connected with the LDS Keep could see whether Harry completely lied while in the Serenidad Suggest Job interview a new temple propose as being a Mormon’s “admintence card” in order to holy Serenidad rites.

Once they carried off the actual playlist element it is definitely not worthy of possibly $3. Whatever practical on the webpage can be obtained free of charge.
Whoa, that is certainly a significant listing. We probably won’t get one cause some of their competition offer you more charm. Or possibly might strengthen it out time.
