A Fantastic Giveaway for a Worthy Cause!!!



Today I want to celebrate the life of a sweet little girl named Sirri. In 2008 she was diagnosed with cancer after they found a potato sized tumor in her tiny chest squeezed between her heart and lungs. Two years later she is healthy and cancer free! It is truly a miracle and act of God that she is alive today. In an effort to give back and hope other families can have the outcome they now enjoy, all of the ladies in Sirri's family and some close friends have chosen to participate in the American Cancer Society's Relay for Life this summer. They have all come up with their own way of raising funds, with a goal of $5000.....and they are halfway there! Sirri's Aunt Cindy started an etsy shop called Button of Hope, selling the most adorable hair pins, earrings, and necklaces....with 100% of the proceeds going to the cause! To help her get the word out and try and meet their goal, we are having a giveaway. Cindy has so graciously offered one lucky winner a pair of earrings, a set of hair pins, and a necklace from her etsy shop! Here is just a sampling of the absolutely adorable items from her shop..........








My dear readers, I would be so honored for you to help support this family and the worthy cause they're involved in. I have been so touched by this sweet little girl and her family and their story of survival. What a gift they have been given. I just had to share with you what Cindy had to say on her blog about her neice and their experience......

"Our family feels so blessed to have Sirri with us today. For me personally, she is one of the lights and joys of my life. She is my "little squish" and someone I can't imagine life without. She is a healthy and thriving 6 year old who is constantly making us laugh, loves her first grade class, playing with her friends, performing for her family, and painting her fingernails.
With your help, more families will be able to enjoy the outcome we now, so gratefully enjoy."




Please be sure to stop by Cindy's etsy shop, Button of Hope. What a wonderful way to support other families dealing with the heartbreak of cancer. Now, to enter the giveaway, you can do one or all of the following things, with a chance to have your name in the drawing 3 times! Please leave a seperate comment for each thing you do to enter the giveaway. We will close it at noon on Monday the 28th and choose the winner using random.org...........

THANK YOU so much for doing this for me! It is SO appreciated.

Relay for Life was just this weekend and we are just a couple hundred dollars short of our $5,000 goal . . . but we have until August 31st to accomplish it! So, we're still pushing for it hard.

THANK YOU to those you who have made a purchase! It is amazing what can be done for those suffering for cancer with such a small amount of money!
