A Brizo Invite To Attend A Reunion In Memphis

Today I am singing the blues, as I am going home to Memphis, Tennessee. The first thing that comes to most peoples minds when they think of Memphis, is Graceland the famous home of The King, Elvis Presley. Others think of Beale Street in the heart of Memphis, and it's famous Blues clubs. 
Or the Mississippi River, where cotton is grown along the shores.  I always think of Memphis, and it's famous melt-in-your-mouth barbecue.   

I am flying into Memphis, because Brizo invited me to attend an all-expenses paid reunion in Memphis.  The reunion of all the #Blogger19 who are Designers who blog, from all over the world.  We will be meeting the patients, Doctors and the executive of St. Jude Children's Research.  The world's premier centers for research and treatment of catastrophic diseases in children, primarily pediatric cancers.

The mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is to find cures for children with catastrophic illnesses through research and treatment.  At St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, no child is ever turned away because of a family's inability to pay.  

Brizo is a supporter of Houses for the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway.  Homes are constructed across America using donated land, materials, labor, and fixtures from Brizo faucets and accessories for the kitchen and bath. The giveaway campaign gives thousands a chance to win a new home, and the money raised  helps to fund research and treatment efforts for St. Jude and helps children live out their dreams.


The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is one of the largest single-event fundraisers for St. Jude nationwide and has raised more than $260 million.  

I'll be reporting via social media, so please follow us on Twitter, we'll be using the hashtag #blogger19.  We'll also be learning about Brizo products and touring the factory while in Memphis.  This is the Memphis, I've never gone home to and it's exciting to be part of this experience.  I encourage you to reserve your $100 Dream Home ticket, and help St. Jude continue its lifesaving research.   

Disclaimer:   Brizo is paying/paid for my airfare and travel expenses for this trip.
