Read how "following" this blog will help a charity...

During this trial, a company called "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep" (www.nowilaymedowntosleep.com) came for free to the hospital to take pictures of baby Anthony and his mommy and daddy.  They gave of their time and resources...all for free! 

Because Christen and I have been blessed with such wonderful photos of our son (many photos you have seen on my blog are from this company) I would like to help them as they are totally non-profit.

For the next month, I will donate 25 cents for each and every person that "follows" Working on a Dream.
-That means for every 4 people a dollar will be donated.
-For every hundred people 25 dollars will be donated. 

If we can raise 100 dollars I will match the rest for a total of $200.00.

Please consider this opportunity. 
I know how much it meant for Christen and I to have these pictures taken and I want this company to be around for any other family too.

God has a special place in Heaven for you and your wife. What a sweet and thoughtful thing you are doing for those photographers. I know your son is looking down quite proud of his mommy and daddy.

Continued prayers....always!

I'm so sorry for your loss. My husband and I were also blessed immensely by Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep and are so thankful for the volunteers who provide families with these precious pictures. Hoping for continued strength for you and Christen for the days ahead.

Anthony and Christen, this is a wonderful idea. This company sounds amazing and you are doing such a wonderful thing, bringing this to light. Most of us would never know about this company and others like it. You have my deepest sympathy for the loss your son. Baby Anthony is an angel, and so are you both. Because of parents like you, many more people will get to have these special moments captured on film. Bless you both during this trying time and also for what you are doing to help Anthony live on.

I made a donation in Baby Anthony's name on the "Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep" website.

I am so sorry for the loss of your son. I also was thankful that NILMDTS took photographs for us of our son as they are all treasured memories. I plan to catch up on your blog over the next several days but want to thank you for giving back to these photographers and the organization. May you be incredibly blessed.

What a blessing for you to give back. I am a NILMDTS photographer and sadly, a recipient of the services as well. I hope the photographs have brought you peace and comfort.

My daughter was stillborn on her due date, 4 years, 3 months, and 1 day ago. I wish we had been offered services from NILMDTS.

I am following you.

I am also a NILMDTS photog, and think this is awesome! I haven't had a chance to read through it all yet, but am so glad someone was able to be with you and your family during your time of need. Thank you for all you are doing to try to help us continue to help families in need. God bless you all!
