There is Help. There is Hope

Depression is treatable, suicide is not. Through education and prevention we can save lives and prevent needless suffering.
I think we have all be touched by someone we love suffering from depression. Too many of us have suffered the loss of a loved one from suicide. For this reason Barbara has suggested that we have our 2nd Annual Birthday Raffle benefit I Need A LightHouse.
I am reaching out today because I learned last year that when we have fundraisers we often receive donations to the cause from our friends and vendors. This year we would like to stay ahead of this by asking you if you want to donate anything to the raffle and if you do please let us know in advance what it will be, send us a picture or drop it by. If you do this we will be able to promote you, your generosity, your product and/or business on social media along with the Hilltop Newsletter as well as our own.
Thank you to our friends, vendors and customers who continue to support The Creative Wedge and all that we do.
100% of raffle proceeds go to I Need A LightHouse, Inc.. A depression and suicide education awareness program.

So what is Zumbini??

Zumbini is a movement and music class for children, birth to three year olds, to attend with their music loving (Zumba loving!) caregiver(s).  Class is fun, energetic and full of contemporary music with world beats.  It is child appropriate, grown-up friendly, and of course, full of Zumba flavor!  Children learn to dance, sing, and move through class using their bodies, rhythmic instruments and scarves – all to enhance the rhythm and feel of the music.
