You may have already received this e-mail directly from Megan or an e-mail from me that I forwarded. However, I wanted to post this because I do not have everyone's e-mail address, and what these girls are doing is AMAZING! This is what Megan wrote:
Good Morning Blogging Beauties! I hope this e-mail finds you all doing well ;)!
Many of you read Leigh Ann Horton's Blog that is sweetly titled Horton Happenings! I know. like me that you have come to love and adore Leigh Ann and her family! I also know that many of you have a family of your own, have a deep love for children, and are givers by nature.
When I read Leigh Ann's post about Evan and his daily struggle with Autism, my heart stopped! It took a great deal of courage for Leigh Ann to share her story!!!
My "GALZ" (Lauren and Meagan) and I were truly touched by her story!!! We went to our normal Junior League Meeting in April and the guest speaker was a lady who spoke to us about Autism. We signed up to help with the Tennessee Walk that will be on September 13th, but we wanted to do more!!!!
So, we have started a team affectionately titled FOR THE LOVE OF EVAN! We know that none of you will be able to join us at the TN Walk on September 13th, but we hope that you might still consider giving...

* Scroll down to For the Love of Evan
* If you would like to make a small donation on-line, please do
I am also asking that you pass this e-mail onto any of your friends and/or family who might give =)!
Much Love & Many Thanks,
Megan, Meagan, & Lauren
My heart has been especially touched by Megan, Lauren, and Meagan. If you don't know them (I wish you did), I met them through blogging. They live in Tennessee. I have never "met" them in person. I just know we have connected through the heart and I now consider them my friends. These angels on earth have surprised us by participating in September in the Tennessee sponsored Autism Walk in honor of our Evan. They have even set up a team for him named "For the Love of Evan." Saying that we have been touched is an understatement. These three ladies have shown so much love to me and my family, a true example of Christ's love.
With this event comes the opportunity to donate to help with autism research. If you feel lead to do so, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. You can click on the picture of Meagan, Megan and Lauren in the top right hand corner of my blog and it will take you to Evan's page. Our hope is that one day there will be a cure for and measures to prevent autism. Please know that every dollar you give will make a difference in Evan's life and those that come after him.
To my sweet, sweet friends in , on behalf of my family, I thank you for the love you have shown our family. This is amazing what you have taken upon yourselves to do, and we are truly grateful. I will be coming to TN to hug you all in person soon!!! I already have it planned. :)
Hugs and love to you all,
