Snookiebrook Accessories

My name is Amanda Pelchat. I started making jewelry and crochet items to sell and raise money for the Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF). I raised money for my post-transplant costs. Then, a bunch of friends set up a fundraiser to help me with this task. I received overwelming support, not only from friends and family, but also from people I have never met. Not only did it help me, but I met so many others who wanted to know more about transplants. Out of everyone whom I had long been friends with that assisted with the fundraising, two were able to find matches and got transplants for themselves. We had our own support group system along wuth each other's family. I have pictures on this website: Thank you for reading.
