Sunday Morning Preview

I think many of you know that I have a couple of friends who have little ones with cystic fibrosis. It is a cause very near and dear to my heart... raising money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation to find a cure for these beautiful kiddos. Well my friend Lora introduced me to Kristy who offered to make a donation to the auction. She has a son named Jude who has Cystic Fibrosis. If you don't know much about CF... definitely look it up. It is a genetic disease that creates incredibly thick and sticky mucus in one's body. It affects the lungs, pancreas, and the digestive system. These kiddos and adults have to have a lot of medical treatment and take a ton of medications every day to help them absorb the nutrients in food and to be able to breathe and clear their lungs out. Kristy's business Jude's Cure helps her support her family but she also donates 10% of all proceeds to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation so that their great work in finding a cure for children like Jude (and Alyssa and Ryan) can continue. So I am incredibly excited to have this piece in the auction and introduce people to her business.

What a build up! Up on the auction block will be a Pinafore (it is a top, not a dress... that is the word on the street. We all know I have boys and know nothing about girly stuff) in your choice of material and size (6mos to 3yrs). These little beauties are reversible too!
