Monday's Mission - M.D. Anderson's Children's Art Project

Our Monday's Mission highlights groups raising money for cancer patients/research or groups volunteering to make a difference in cancer patients' lives.

This Monday's Mission is the M.D. Anderson's Children's Art Project.

The M.D. Anderson's Mission is 
"to convey to the public the compassionate, caring face of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and to generate revenue to enhance patient services through the sale of products created with children's art."

They have some beautiful art for sale created by children who are patients. There are cards, iPhone covers, stationary, umbrellas, and many more. The art is gorgeous and most items have a small artist biography.

Here are a few of my favorites:

So if you're looking for some unique gifts for this holiday season that will also benefit children with cancer, please check out M.D. Anderson's Children's Art Project.

*If you know of an organization or volunteer group helping cancer patients or raising money for cancer related  projects, please contact us. We'd love to feature them in a Monday's Mission post!

October's Giveaway Winner and November's Giveaway

Congrats to Christy for winning October's Giveaway!

November's giveaway and all future giveaways will be different. We will no longer be doing monthly giveaways. The goal of the giveaway was to promote our site and help build traffic to our shop to help us with fundraising. That's just not happening. So rather than host our own monthly giveaways, we'll be joining more giveaway events like the one beginning on Nov. 8th (see link to the right). 

So for the month of November, we have 2 such events for you to have a chance to win! 

The 1st is being hosted by Leslie of A to Z Alpaca. It is a 100% alpaca giveaway where all the items were handmade from her wonderful Alpaca fiber/yarn. 
Here's what we've donated:

These crocodile stitch wrist gauntlets are made from 100% Alpaca yarn in natural brown. This giveaway runs from today (Nov. 1st) through Nov. 20th and can be found by clicking the above photo. Check out all the really cool items!

Our 2nd event is the Made With Love giveaway hop. This event begins on Nov. 8th and runs through Nov. 13th. Over 100 blogs are participating and each one is offering handmade items valued at $25+. You won't want to miss that! Our blog will be offering a prize valued at $60 and entry will be using the easy peasy rafflecopter form! So please check back on the 8th for all the details!

Hope you all have a wonderful November!!
