TOUCHDOWNS FOR TRAVIS
My name is Heather Glennon, my husband, Sam, and I lost our sweet precious baby Travis at 38 weeks gestation, July 2016. Our family has been through a very rough time trying to process the series of events that took place on July 16th and 17th and processing the “why” and “how” this happened.
We decided to look for a way to honor our sweet baby boy Travis, who we never had the opportunity to meet, but has touched so many. We truly believe this is what he would want, and as parents (as are most of you) we will do anything for our children.
So here is our idea…Some of you may know, but most probably do not, we got the name Travis from the tight end Travis Kelce for the Kanas City Chiefs. We were watching a Chiefs game, when Sam began yelling “Go Travis, Go Travis, Go,” then he turned and looked at me and said do you like that name for a boy? I remember tilting my head and thinking “yes, yes I do!” And from that day forward the name stuck!
To honor our sweet baby boy Travis as we head into Kansas City Chiefs season, we would like to raise money in his name and give back to those that have gone through this tragic event like us. We have had such a tremendous support group throughout this tragedy with family and friends. We are learning from attending support groups and meetings, not everybody is as lucky as we are. We would like to raise money in Travis Wesley Glennon’s name and the money raised will go to the Share Pregnancy and Infant Loss Support Organization. We believe by doing this it will help others, and us, heal (if possible) and always remember our Angels taken too soon.
In honor of Travis and for the love of the Kansas City Chiefs, where our son’s name came from, we our announcing another season of “Touchdowns for Travis.” You can pledge any dollar amount per touchdown made by any Kansas City Chiefs Tight End, making a touchdown throughout the season and postseason (hopefully), or donate a fixed dollar amount to Share by clicking on this link here (a tax deductible letter will be sent to you from the National Share organization). If you want to pledge per touchdown, you can put a cap dollar amount to your donation.
Example: You pledge $10 for each touchdown by any Kansas City Chiefs tight ends. The total number of touchdowns at the end of the season by the Chiefs tight ends let’s say was 7.
Your donation would be $70.
If you wish to participate in the full season pledge per touchdown please email Heather Glennon at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know your pledge amount per touchdown by any Kansas City Chiefs tight end (if you wish to put a cap on the donation please be sure to email me that dollar amount). Then at the end of the season I will email you your total pledge dollar amount and the link again to make your donation.
Let’s go Chiefs!!!
