Christi's Tea Party 2008

Due to some life changes of the sweet party planners and to the fact that I am in the midst of finishing my final OSU courses and writing two chapters of my dissertation this quarter, I decided it best not to physically hold a "Christi's Tea Party" this year. Last year's still provide us with the sweetest memories of being surrounded by those who loved Christi on her birthday; it also allowed us to raise funds for her Memorial Fund - keeping her legacy alive. This year, however, it will need to be done "virtually". Our deepest thanks to the amazing Olivia who has offered to home make "Christi's Tea Packages". Listed below you'll find all of the information you need to "attend" if you're able. Please accept our deepest thanks and gratitude for helping with this fundraiser, if you're able!!

It's Tea Time!
Honoring Christi's 11th Birthday




In honor of what would have been Christi's 11th birthday, Tea Time Packages are being sold. These packages are a special way to celebrate and acknowledge Christi's remarkable life—a party in a box!

Each Christi's Tea Time Package will include:

• 8 cookies of your choice (chocolate chip, sugar or chocolate peanut butter)

• 4 chocolate lollipops

• 4 packets of either tea or hot chocolate

• A keepsake in recognition of your donation

The suggested donation price for each Christi's Tea Package is $15 (shipping is included).

To place your order, please email: christi.birthday@gmail.com.

Orders will be accepted through May 31, 2008.

All funds raised will be donated to the Christi Thomas Memorial Fund and the Kids Cancer Crusade. These organizations were established in honor of Christi and her love of learning, of the arts and of helping those most in need.

For more information on these wonderful organizations, please visit:

www.christithomas.org and www.kidscancercrusade.org.

Together, we can all celebrate Christi's special day and keep her legacy alive.

Hi Angela, just a query: are those packages available to ship internationally (it's not clear from the kidscancercrusade website either)? I think it is a wonderful idea- I hope it raises lots of funds.

I love the idea! I'll definitely join in and "attend" her tea party. I can't believe it's almost her birthday, time just flies by. Love and miss you Christi!

Wonderful idea! I have ordered two, one for our family and one for the girls next door who I babysit for (Christi and Shayla's ages) so they can have a little tea party in her honor as well.

Angela you sure know how to keep busy :) Best of luck with your classes and those dissertation chapters

I wanted to stop by and tell you I had the most vivid dream about Christi last night. I never had the pleasure of meeting her in person, but I feel like I have gotten to know and love all of you through her website.

In my dream, she was in a race, and she was so fast and nimble, and beat everyone to the finish line! She was so happy, smiling, and laughing.

I'm not a dream interpretor or anything, but what the dream meant to me is that Christi's body is perfect now that she is in heaven. She has no more aches and pains associated with the surgeries she had, the tumors, or the Chemo. She is perfect and happy. I hope my post provides some comfort.

My thoughts and prayers are always with your family.

Hi Angela -
I know - I seem to always write about your PhD work, probably because I'm doing it as well. Anyhow - congrats on finishing coursework this quarter, and even more - writing 2 chapters of your dissertation! That's a huge accomplishment - as you know. I know that Christi is looking down from above very very proud of you.
