Stamp Out Cancer

Wow! We feel so blessed to live in such an awesome community and grateful for all the love and support everyone has shown us. So, we decided it was time to give a little something back to our community!

This weekend, Montgomery County will be home to a HUGE fundraiser for the Montgomery County Cancer Association. For those that don't know about the MCCA, it is an all-volunteer run organization that provides financial assistance to local residents undergoing treatment for cancer, grants for cancer research and scholarship funding.  It's an amazing organization that has helped so many people in this year.

Well, this weekend is Stamp Out Cancer, which last year raised $70,000 for the MCCA in just one night!!  The event includes a "Dancing with the Stars" theme with five celebrity dancing couples, a live band and a silent auction.

After very little discussion (we were both kind of excited about it), Kyle and I decided to make "A Grace Filled Journey" basket in honor of Grace.  It's packed to the brim with so many of her favorite things, including a "Bruce" puppy, donated by her speech therapist, Dana Holshouser.  

These are the items inside Grace's Stamp Out Cancer basket.
In addition to Bruce, it has a stuffed Minnie Mouse, two bows, a pink soccer ball, Rapunzel wand, bubbles, two books, a Frozen DVD (the NEW sing-a-long edition), Princess Sofia stickers and of course, M&Ms.  We even found a Minnie Mouse trash can to pack it in.  And the lucky winner will also get TWO purple "A Grace Filled Journey" bracelets tucked just inside.

All packaged up and ready for bids!
Kyle, Grace and I had so much fun shopping for things she liked to create the basket, and we hope if you are going to Stamp Out Cancer that you will big bid to help out an awesome organization.

And together, we can make a BIG difference!
