Finnz Fundz Pinnz!

So, we're right around the corner of Finn's 11th Birthday next Wednesday. To celebrate his birthday in the past, we have asked for a donation that has matched his age. This year, we are doing something a little different...
We had some fancier pins made of our logo (picture attached, quarter shown for size). I have used one as a tie tack (hint, hint Father's Day).
If you are interested in getting one, please give $6.34 (Finn's birthday is 6/3/04) on the Paypal on this page and include your name and address so we can insure proper receipt. If you would like 2, please give $11 using the same method.
We are not going to be making these pins available through any other website, or be carrying them wherever we go. Please consider raising our visibility and get a cool pin, too!

What a great day we had on Saturday!  There's nothing like a big group of Santas walking through the streets of Newport!  At one point, over 150 joined in the merriment.  Over $800 was raised for Finnz Fundz, which will go directly to helping individuals and families affected by Cystic Fibrosis.  Thanks again to everyone for their generosity, and to the Santacon Committee for choosing us as a beneficiary!  Check out all the pictures here.

We are absolutely thrilled that Santa and his merry helpers have picked us as a beneficiary of funds to be raised at Santacon Newport THIS SATURDAY, December 6th. What a great way to celebrate the season while also helping others! The event was even featured on RI Monthly.  Thanks SO much, Santa!

If you, or someone you know, is fighting Cystic Fibrosis and is in need of financial assistance, please email us.

If you are able, please donate and support our work by clicking the paypal button on this page.

Happy holidays! Thank you for helping us help others while celebrating Finn's spirit.

SO, because of scheduling and logistics, we will not be having an actual party this June (as we have done in the past). This Tuesday, June 3rd, would've been Finnegan's 10th birthday. We would like nothing more for Finn's name and our mission to grow in size and capability. Please SHARE SHARE SHARE our foundation with as many friends as you can. If possible, donate $10 for Finn's 10th and encourage others to do the same (the "Donate" button is on the Facebook page and here at finnzfundz.blogspot.com). Thank You for the support so many of you have shown and given to us and others!
