...OUR VERY FIRST BILLBOARD! 

We have created many wonderful photos for our photo campaign, and we are thrilled that our very first billboard will be going up! 


The best part, we are doing this, in collaboration with Changing the Face of Beauty! 

Drum roll please.....

And with out any further adieu...

Where is the first billboard?

The CHICAGO AREA! 

Lamar Advertising of Chicago, will be choosing the location of the billboard. We will be able to update you on that when it goes up!

The first one, has been fully funded by donations to the IDSC by the great people of  Chicago {and Changing the Face of Beauty}, and is featuring Chicago area mom, Nicole, with her sweet girl, Ady! 


Nicole, on the phone with Diane, from the IDSC, finding out she and Ady were chosen, while Steve and Katie, from CTFOB hold the banner of the billboard.

We could not be more excited about this new project! We hope that we can continue to add more billboards, to more locations.

If you are interested helping us to place billboards in other locations, and you would like "adopt" a billboard, you can donate to the IDSC on our website. Be sure to put in the notes when you donate that you would like this earmarked for the billboard. We will add more, as funding becomes available.

Billboards range in price from $250 to $1600. Every penny donated helps.
