My daughters mission

Hello all

As many of you know, I am the proud Mom of three kiddos. Today, I want to share with you something about my beautiful daughter. Liz is currently a Senior in high school. One year ago, this month, we moved her across the country to a brand new state and life. She handled this move with much grace and maturity and supported her Dad and I during this change.

Liz now attends a local high school that spends a lot of time teaching the kids about benevolence. The dictionary says benevolence is the desire to do good to others; goodwill; and charitableness. I absolutely LOVE this. We have raised all of our children to always help others in any way you can. Liz's high school spends the entire 4 years they have with the students teaching this principle. In fact, to graduate, each student has to complete a Senior Project showcasing this idea of benevolence. They spend four years doing different things to finish this project. Even though Liz has only been at this high school for a year, she is required to also do the project. Fortunately, this is a concept that she has been taught all her life.

Liz decided her project would contain two things our family is passionate about - Finding a Cure for cancer AND art!!

Liz has compiled some of her own original art pieces and is selling them to raise money for The American Cancer Society. ALL money raised from the sales will be donated to The American Cancer Society to help find a cure for cancer. She is even going to ship these pieces for FREE.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE check out the links below to Liz's blog and etsy page and consider helping her to successfully finish her Senior Project and help find a cure for cancer.
