If you need help getting us the perfect gift, here's the scoop: we've registered for a few things that we need at Bloomingdales. Beyond that, however, instead of getting us a crystal gravy-boat that we only dig out of storage when you visit, we would much rather have you support a couple of charities we feel strongly about. All of the information is below.
If you're web-savvy, our registry is online at The Bloomingdale's Website.
Otherwise, just call Bloomindales at 1-888-269-3187.
The Michael Carter Lisnow Respite Center
We learned about the Respite Center from our friends Molly and Kevin Meyers and their daughter Riley. The Respite Center provides support to families who are faced with the incredible challenges of raising a child with severe disabilities. The services they offer range from daycare to respite care to community employment support. They do an amazing job of making a little girl like Riley with Down Syndrome feel like a princess (not to mention giving Molly and Kevin a much needed break from time to time).

The Juvenile Diabetes Research Fund
We learned about the JDRF from our friends Elizabeth and Keith Wexelblatt and their son Jake, who has Type 1 Juvenile Diabetes. The JDRF is the world's leading nonprofit, nongovernmental funder of diabetes research. Researchers are closing in on finding a cure for juvenile diabetes, and along the way are translating their scientific advances into longer, healthier lives for those with this often devastating disease. The Wexes are active participants in the Wellesley Mass chapter of the JDRF and we sure would love for you to contribute.
