Christmas Miracle In The Making Courtesy Of Renee Baio
Sebastian Cruz Designs along with a list of other caring companies have teamed up to raise funds for the Hammon family, who recently went through a terrible loss, losing their son Parker.
Since 2006, Sherri and Sebastian from Sebastian Cruz Designs have been creating custom-made children’s clothing. Their posh pettiskirts and couture dress and outfit designs are fun and frilly – perfect for your little princess! I actually heard about this talented designing duo (along with some other amazing companies) thanks to my friend Renee Baio. Her undying dedication to special needs children, raising awareness for metabolic disorders and expanded newborn screening is incredible. This is one woman that cares – truly!
Recently Jamie Hammon, a single mother, lost her son Parker. In addition to the medical bills that have been piling up, she is now faced with the expense of her son’s funeral.
In the words of a Hammon family friend, “Parker put up a heroic battle for six years. His quality of life consisted of seizures, trach dependency for breathing, and g-tube dependency for nutrition. He lived in a back brace, confined mostly to a hospital bed. He suffered from epilepsy and metabolic/mitochondrial disorders, along with a host of other medical problems.”
Sebastian Cruz Designs has donated to the Bailey Baio Angel Foundation in the past and when they heard about this situation, they offered to auction off a complete custom outfit from newborn to size 10 girls (value $150), with 100% of the proceeds to go to BBAF for the Hammon family.
Lisa’s Chic Boutique is a on-line store which specializes in “One of a Kind Designs” in “Tutu Hair Bow Holders”,”Cigar Box Purses”,”Crystal Accessories” and the famous “Trinket Boxes”. They too have donated to BBAF in the past and wanted to help out the Hammon Family by auctioning one customized “One of a Kind” Tinket Boxes and a “One of a Kind Cigar Box Purse”. One hundred percent of the profits from the auction of these products will go to the Hammon Family.
Ever wonder what kind of beauty products the stars use? Renee Baio says, that that Votre Vu is “The ONLY lotion I use on my face as it’s the best stuff and smells good enough to eat!”
Gina Olson a Star Director and Brand Ambassador of Votre Vu is generously donating her commission of 30% on anything purchased off her website.
Sweet Pea Kidz Too is auctioning off a Clippie Tote filled with 10 Clips (100% of the proceeds going to the Hammon family). These Totes are available in 4 designs: Princess Crowns, Owls, Princess or Sock Monkey, and retail for $24-$45 with 3 clips. Top 3 Bids will will receive a clutch of their choice! If the top 6 bids reach $50 – they will award 6 Clippie Totes.
Little Diva Tutus began with a mission to help children in need after contacting the mother of Hannah Deal, a little girl who lost her battle to cancer at the tender age of 4. Since opening in 2009, Little Diva Tutus has donated nearly $5,000 in cash and products to families and children in need. Starting tomorrow, they are holding a special tutu auction, where a custom tutu, personalized Diva T-shirt and matching leg warmers and hair accessory will be auctioned off.
The original balance of the discounted cost for the funeral was around $5,500. After receiving small donations from friends and family as well as the $1,000 that Scott Baio and his wife Renee gave to the funeral home.
By supporting the momprenuers above over the next couple of days, you will score some pretty cool Christmas gifts and help to make a Christmas miracle a reality for the Hammon family.
