This week, thankfully, one of our great sponsors shared her story about her daughter Haylee and I'd like to share a little bit of her story here and then you can read more about her on her blog HERE.
When I read Haylee's story last night I was so incredibly inspired. Not only has this young girl risen above her situation - something she's dealt with since birth, but she has embrace it, rejoiced in it and overcome it. It's amazing. She excels, it seems, in everything she does - most importantly bringing joy to others.
Even though her deformity affects her hands, she makes beautiful beaded bracelets for sale and to give away. She's just an inspiration.
Make sure you read more about her story and if you'd like to help send an adorable stuffed animal to another child like Haylee, please visit our sponsor page.
Haylee, thank you for sharing your story and watch for your Pink Poodle Purse to come in the mail from the friends and supporters at Critters who Care!
Here's a quick snapshot of the story and if you click on the picture of it it'll take you to the actual story link:
Oooh - that's really hard to read... ok this is how it starts:
I love when I read stuff like this - really truly unselfish kids. Plus it's great to open up a paper (or your browser) and read some good news once in a while, eh?
Birthday gifts for Savannah Hutson piled up recently at a Bristol Tennessee Pizza Hut.
The stack from family and friends included books, movies, video games, board games, puzzles and toys.
On the surface, it appeared Savannah had collected a hefty bounty during her 10th birthday party at the Volunteer Parkway restaurant, but the gifts were not actually for her.
For the second consecutive year, Savannah will donate her birthday presents to less fortunate children.
What do you think? Should we send Savannah a pink poodle purse or other fun animal?
