Newsome Twosome Raising Cleft Awareness



This site is to raise awareness and provide information about Cleft Lip and Palate.

It is also to promote the Fourth Annual Newsome Twosome Cleft Awareness Fundraiser benefiting the Shriners.

I am a mother of two year old twin boys both of which were born with Cleft Lip and Palate. When my twins were born, I made a post on Facebook to let everyone know about their Cleft. That announcement changed our lives for the better. With this announcement we discovered a whole new family, as the Shriners entered our lives. By making this post, a friend of mine whose brother is a Shriner saw the post and immediately said, "We can help!" The Shriner's Hospital for Children are taking care of both of the boys many surgeries they will and have already had. We were so overwhelmed by all the Shriners have done, were doing and will continue to do for our boys and so many other children that we felt that we had to give back in some way. That is when the Newsome Twosome Cleft Awareness Fundraiser was born. Our first year we raised $6,206.49, plus we purchased 10 Gund Cleft Teddy Bears. Our 2nd year we raised $6,400.00 and purchased 12 Gund Cleft Teddy Bears. Last year we raised $5,800.00 and purchased 12 Gund Cleft Teddy Bears. This year skys the limit lets see what we can do together with your help.
