I can’t say I know what it’s like to be the parent of a child with cancer. I do, however, have some experience being the mother of a baby girl that has constant doctor’s appointments and has had surgery.
No matter how much or how little time your child spends in a hospital, it is always a scary experience, full of anxiety. We were shown love by so many wonderful people who didn’t even know us during Ava’s surgery, I will never forget it. Whenever possible, I try to give back.
I am so blessed for the opportunity to work with the Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation on a Cuddle Bear Book Drive this Christmas season. The Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation improves the mental, social and emotional well-being of children undergoing cancer treatment across America! It’s truly such an amazing cause and I am really excited to be a part of their wonderful work. One of the many, MANY incredible things they do is deliver gifts to thousands of children undergoing cancer treatments in hospitals across the United States. I am working to provide them with as many Cuddle Bear book sets as I can for their initiative this holiday season!
The Cuddle Bear set includes an adorable storybook, and a matching plush teddy bear, making it a perfect gift for a little one that is sick and in the hospital all the time. Giving to this cause is a pure act of kindness and generosity to show these kids some love. The really cool thing is that my company is matching the sales by 50%, so for every two sets donated, Usborne will donate a 3rd one to these amazing children for FREE! Donating one set is just $24.99 and it puts a priceless smile on a child’s face this season. ♥
Your partnership over the next few days — both in donating and in sharing my campaign with those you think would love to take part — is so valuable. If you think this is a cause you’d be interested in supporting with me, you can donate here. The Cuddle Bear Book Drive will close Monday, December 17.
If you would like to help me spread the word, Pin this post or invite your friends and family to my Facebook event. I will be posting updates and more information throughout the next few days. I am so grateful for any and all support to help a child smile this time of year.
