The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

I truly love this time of year.
I posted a blog last week asking for nominees to benefit from this fundraiser, I was overwhelmed reading stories of heartbreak and suffering. How does on chose just one family from so many who are clearly in need? I have made small donations to all the families nominated, but in the end we could only do the fundraiser for one.

Meet the Marcellus family.

 Two years ago Donna gave birth to her first, a baby girl, 9 weeks early. Miraculously this little angel survived after several days in ICU, she is now a happy, healthy two year old.
In mid-November Donna gave birth to her second, a baby boy, born 13 weeks early and living only a few hours.
Reading the story of this sweet little family broke my heart, and thinking about the astronomical costs of life flight, surgery, and having their sweet little boy in ICU, not to mention costs of funerals, I knew that I needed to do everything that I could to help this family.
Here is the complete post about Zaine

If you can, please make a donation to this family during this time & share in the true meaning of the Christmas spirit by clicking on the donate button to the right. Any dollar amount will be accepted. 100% of the donations received will be given to to this family.  ALL of the proceeds will be given to the Marcellus family to help them during this tragic time in their lives. The fundraiser will go through Christmas day & I won’t be posting anything else on my blog besides this fundraiser until after the New Year.

 I know that we are put here on this earth to help each other, to lift each other up when times are hard. May each of you find joy in helping others this Christmas season.

 Each donation will receive a healthy dessert e cook book. These recipes are amazing, and if you have ever been to one of my parties you have likely tasted some of this healthy goodness.

Thank you in advance for your support and love.
Please leave me your email address in the PayPal information box.

Holiday Charity Fundraiser

This year I've decided to start, what I hope to be a long running tradition. An Alaina Wood Fitness holiday fundraiser!
What I would like to ask from you is nominations of families in need. I have a couple in mind that I know would benefit from any donations,but I want to make sure that I reach out to those who are the most in need.
So, here is your part; I need stories of families, or local charities who could use a little extra this holiday season.
You can leave comments on the blog, message me on Facebook, or leave me a message at

Please include some information about the family, including a contact person, so I know where to send the money!

Thank you, in advance, for your help and support!
