Saturday December 7, 2013 Hartland, Michigan Our 2nd Annual Benefit for a Local Family was a great success. We had full Donation Yoga classes and more people came to shop between noon and 3pm. The Fountaine Family was well represented and we had some great laughs and there were plenty of smiles to go around.
There was also plenty of sweets to go around! When picking the goodies to bring, I picked gluten free recipes, vegan and low sugar. That was all fine and good until I arrived home on Friday night and my hubby cleaned out the fridge. He threw all of the prepped food away thinking it was leftovers! So, after getting up an hour earlier to be at Crust in Fenton at 7am, I arrived to the Studio with less than Vegan, Gluten free and sugar free goodies. Thanks Crust Bakery! And thanks Hubby!
The sun was shining and the air was crisp and cold. It was bright, warm and cozy in the studio. After our Beginner and Relaxation classes we began to shop. Louise from South Hill Designs came with her Lockets. These Lockets are beautiful and classy looking. Personalizing each gift was a lot of fun. Louise can be reached through our Face Book page.
And for a second year, Lisa from Scentsy adorned us with lovely scents. The warning pots are very cool looking and some of her scents for winter bring back wonderful memories! Pine, cookies and peppermint are some of my favs (just not together). Lisa Tabaum can be found through our Face Book Page also.
The Silent Auction is still going on until 12/14 at noon. You can make long distance bids on all of the goods. We have a Spirit Rising Gift Certificate and 3 bracelets from Cooper-Binkley Jewelers. See our Face Book pages or look on our previous posts to see the bracelets. You can email in bids at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Last but not least, thanks to Doug Fountaine for coming in to join is for the Relaxation Yoga class. If anyone deserves some relaxation it is him. He and his wife have been taking care of their 4 children during their 6 year old daughters battle with cancer. We were so happy to help this family out and will continue to always welcome them into our hearts. And…the best thing about Doug is that he is not a hunter, he is an Indo Board fanatic and a roller derby enthusiast. And he always has a smile on his face.
Thanks Fountaine Family for accepting our love and kindness. Thanks to everyone who participated!

A person comes into your life and brightens your day. This is Abbey. She is 6 years old and a daughter of one of PTM’s friends. This past August Abby was diagnosed with kidney cancer in Ann Arbor, Michigan’s University of Michigan, Mott Children’s Hospital.
I have never met Abby, but I have met her Dad, Dougie. Her parent’s own Dougie’s Disposal in Hartland and they have 4 amazing children. When I met Dougie, it was at the 2012 Memorial Day Parade and he is the type of guy that you immediately like.
In August I was calling Dougie to take him out on the boards or do yoga…I hadn’t heard from him. Then I stood in my driveway, thinking about my own Mother and how she was in the hospital with complications from cancer, and I caught Dougie picking up refuse at our home. As he gave me a hug and I inquired about taking him out on the boards, he told me how they almost lost his little girl to cancer.
My heart broke into pieces that day. I know how hard it is to have 2 parents with cancer…but, I couldn’t imagine a child. At that time I offered help, but what could I do right?
Well, the time has come to raise some money. Dougie has a great business and work ethic…but I’m sure he doesn’t get paid if he isn’t there to work. Going to appointments, transportation and all of the expenses have to be piling up.
PLEASE, pass the word on…if you can donate any amount contact us. We have an account set up and a tax ID number if needed.
Please help me show this family that PTM’s friends care!
Much love & light, Linda and the PTM Team

We wish for Emily and Ross to grow old together, stand up paddling their way through life.
