Usually on this page I highlight some of my favorite nonprofit organizations and talk a little about what they do to make their communities a better place.
This month, I would like to do something different.
This month I would like to host a fundraiser to help a 5 year old little boy with an inoperable brain tumor receive his request on the Make A Wish Foundation to go on an Alaskan Disney cruise with his brother, mom, and dad.
This little boy was my son's best friend the summer we spent in Rhode Island. He is easily the sweetest little boy I've ever met. He was 3, my son was 1. Every time we saw him, he and his brother always greeted us with hugs and smiles, insisting on including my boy in everything he did. That family and their neighbors made us feel more welcomed than the neighbors in any other place we have ever lived. They truly are an incredible family with hearts of gold, and deserve this and more!
I've never been good at asking for donations, but would LOVE to include you in with my desires to raise funds to help bring a little light to their lives. So, I am pledging my Beautycounter paycheck this month (and next month if need be) to fund their trip.
Why Beautycounter? Because of their mission. They are a B-Corp (benefit-corporation) who uses their profits to lobby congress for stricter safety laws in the personal care and cosmetic industry. This topic is important to all of us because of the massive amount of toxic chemical exposure we have in our country, especially in our personal care products (including baby and kids products). Below is a video all about their cause and purpose:
My initial goal is to raise $10,000 to adopt their wish. Any additional funds raised will be used to send them a care package filled with nontoxic personal care products, essential oils, and supplements to help them boost their wellness and bring them as much joy as much as possible.
Please, join me in making this dream happen for them.
