Who: You, Your Family & Your Friends

What: Sam’s Family Fun Day

When: Saturday, October 27, 2012 from Noon to 3 pm

Sam, age 10

Where: CenterPark at NorthPark Center (8687 N. Central Expressway, Dallas, TX 75225)

Why: Sam’s Day 2012 at NorthPark is an opportunity to help raise funds to benefit the research programs of Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy and to help people of all ages learn about muscular dystrophy and living with disabilities. Our goal is to help give kids with Duchenne muscular dystrophy a chance to do the things that kids are supposed to do.

Sam’s Day was started in 2005 by friends of Sam Killian. Sam is a 10 year old boy from Rockwall, TX that was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy in 2005. With your support, we are having an impact on this disease, and how it affects the 150,000 boys around the world with Duchenne MD.

If you order a lot of equipment, office supplies, etc through Amazon.com it can be difficult for your bookkeeper to figure out how best to categorize those items unless you automatically send them a copy of each invoice.

For physical products, there is a way around that by downloading your order history.  NOTE: This does NOT work for digital downloads at this time unfortunately (I’ve put the request into Amazon.com)
