Did you know that September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month? One of my clients is CURE Childhood Cancer, an amazing non-profit organization dedicated to finding a cure for childhood cancer in our lifetime. They are a tireless team dedicated to the cause and have done so many amazing things over the years to make this dream more and more a reality than ever before. This year I am thrilled to be actively participating as a blogger in the CURE Community, helping to raise awareness and get others involved in helping CURE.
And, with our little baby boy on the way, it has an even deeper and more personal meaning that it ever has before. One thing I'd like to pass down to him is the gift of doing good for others in the world when you have the opportunity to do so.
This month, CURE is sharing stories and honoring children who have been touched by childhood cancer each day in September as part of their 3rd annual CURE's Kids Conquer Cancer One Day at a Time. In their first two years of the program, CURE has honored over 150 children and raised nearly $400,000 to help fight childhood cancer.
I hope you'll take a minute to pop over and read some of these truly amazing stories. This year myself, my husband and our little-boy-to-be are teaming up to raise $1,000 to support one of the CURE Kids - Kylie Seiz. You can click over to read more about why we're getting involved and learn more about her personal story too.
What is "I Support CURE's Kids?" The idea for "I Support CURE's Kids" began as a way for friends in the blogging community (do I count as a "mommy blogger" yet?) to help show their support for CURE Childhood Cancer during the month of September.
An amazing group of bloggers has agreed to "donate" a blog post during the month of September to help spread awareness for CURE Childhood Cancer, as well as a spot on their blog for the "I Support CURE's Kids" blog badge. Some of my amazing friends (Wendy at Layla Grayce, Laura at Scholz Communications, Stacy at InkSpot Workshop, Courtney at Pizzazzerie, Kelly & Amy at Swoozie's, Joni at Lay Baby Lay, and Pam & Melissa at Project Nursery ... the list goes on ... THANK YOU!) have generously agreed to take part. I hope you will consider doing so on your own blog, too!
