Thank You #blueballoonsforsydney 

20 Jun


  Last Monday I began my day by contacting three other families that were friends with the Galleger’s to ask them if they would help me with this small idea I had of “Blue Balloons for Sydney”.  I made a couple of graphics, flyers, and Facebook buttons to post on social media.   Tuesday night I created a public Facebook page and invited three hundred of my Minnesota friends to participate.  That invite list is now nearing 15,000. Never in my wildest dreams did I anticipate what is happening around Eden Prairie, Minnesota, The USA, and the world. I am beyond grateful, completely humbled and quite frankly in awe of the way so many people have come together for this family.    Thank you ALL so much for honoring, loving, and praying for a hurting family.  Sydney has saved lives, brought a community together and impacted a world. She was nothing short of a miracle… She truly is an angel!   

Keep those thoughts and prayers coming…  #blueballoonsforsydney doesn’t end today…  XOXO.

Blue Balloons for Sydney 

16 Jun

 You may have heard about the 17 year old, full of life, contagious spirit of a girl, Sydney Galleger who passed away due to complications from oral surgery this week. I grew up with her family and her aunt is still one of my dearest friends.  Her funeral is this Saturday 6/20/15 at 11:11am. To show our support, we are asking the community to display blue (whatever shade you can find) balloons in front of their house or business to celebrate Sydney’s huge heart and cherished 17 years of life. We want to blanket Eden Prairie and surrounding areas to honor Sydney. We’d love for the balloons to be up by 9:00am so that the Galleger’s can feel our love on the way to the funeral of their special girl. Thank you for showing your support! Please help spread the word! 


No matter where you live; Colorado (like me) or Canada or China, I’d love for you to participate!  Please just post a picture of your balloons to mommyapolis’s Facebook page and I will share them with the family!  Let’s show this family the power of a world wide community!  


Please also include the family in your prayers going forward.  Thank you!
