Crafting For Good

Almost a year ago, through The TomKat Studio, I stumbled across the story of a sweet little girl named Kate McRae who was battling cancer. As a human, stories of anyone going through a difficult time are hard for me to read about. As a mom, reading about a child going through something such as cancer is unbearable.

I have followed her story since. Praying daily for her, rejoicing when they have received good news, crying when the news wasn't so great. I have mostly followed through their Caring Bridge journal. Recently Kate's mom posted about Kate's Crazy Cool Christmas.

Through Kate's Crazy Cool Christmas we will be adopting families that are battling pediatric cancer, and a few who are battling it's aftermath after the death of their child this year. Please consider joining us in this. You can give in a few ways....

1. by donating any assortment of new toys, movies, or games for the families. Everything must be new.

2. by donating gift cards to grocery stores, gas stations, and various stores for the families (ie. Walmart, Target, Starbucks, Visa, Clothing Stores, or Sporting Goods stores, Barnes and Noble, Amazon and various Restaurants). We need lots of these to provide for all of the families.

3. by following the link to Sign Up Genius to sign up to donate a very specific item for a family. MANY more items will be added in the coming days and weeks.

Cody and I decided to pick a few items off of the wishlist, to send to the kids and families participating. One of the items we chose was a book, and when I saw this Monster Page Corner Bookmark on Pinterest I knew I had to make one to go with it.

And voila! The googly eyes were Cody's idea! I'm hoping it will bring a smile =)
