Art for a Cause! Helping Kids with Cancer and the St. Baldrick's Foundation

A good friend of mine from high school has the most gorgeous family! His children are beautiful and you can see the happiness radiating through them in their photos! But, behind all the smiles there is a past that would stop your heart. When their youngest child, Andy, turned one, he was diagnosed with cancer. Andy has been brave and undergone numerous treatments and is now a happy, healthy little boy! (I've once heard little boys described as noise with dirt on them...I wonder if little Andy fits the bill?)

So, to celebrate Andy's health, between now and March 6, we will give 20% of all sales from our esty site to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. St. Baldrick's is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. At Foundation events all throughout the year, brave volunteers shave their heads, raising funds for childhood cancer research. Like runners in a marathon, "shavees" collect donations from friends, family and associates. The St. Baldrick's Foundation receives these funds and makes grants to research experts to find new and better cures for fighting kids’ cancer.

Or you can make a direct donation to Andy's mom's site here:

Check out this awesome photo of Andy and his mom that was transformed into a pop art silhouette!
