JOEY'S HAVING A BIRTHDAY, HELP US CELEBRATE!!! When: January 10, 2011 at 4:30 pm Where: Clifton/Bixler Residence - 15366 South Maplelane, Oregon City OR 97045 Why: Because we love Joey! What: Lots of fun, food and football! Go Ducks! In lieu of gifts this year, we would like to encourage Joey's family and friends to make a donation to something that is very near and dear to her heart, giving back to others. All of the money raised will go towards building a maternity ward for women and their children in Tercha, a rural town in Southern Ethiopia. (located in the same region her little sweeties, Tigist and Mihiretu, are from!) 1 in 27 women in Ethiopia will die due to complications during pregnancy or delivery (compared to 1 in 4,800 in the US) Your gift to Joey will help change this for many women in Ethiopia. Help us honor our amazing birthday girl by making a donation in any amount and leaving a birthday wish in the 'comment' section. Is there really a better way to celebrate with Joey then helping to bring hope and health to others!?! Hope to see you all there!!
