I think September is my most favorite month!
Two of my favorite boys have their birthdays in this month. This is the month that the leaves change color in the trees, it’s the month the kids cooler and becomes a perfect time for backyard fire this late at night and stargazing.
It’s also pediatric Cancer awareness month. Did you know that?
I read the other day that there are 43 children diagnosed with cancer daily and more than 40,000 that are receiving cancer treatment each year.
For the next two weeks I am running a book drive with Usbourne Books and More to benefit pediatric cancer patients and there’s two ways this works:
1. All donations will go towards purchasing cuddle bear books and stuffed bears for the children. The set of book and there is $25 but you can donate whatever amount you like.
Usborne Books & More’s Cuddle Bear has a yellow heart sewn on for pediatric cancer awareness. For every sale of this Cuddle Bear and/or it’s accompanying book, 5% of those proceeds will be given to the Scott Carter foundation. This goes towards funding childhood cancer research.
Consider donating a book or a bear for a child.
And then may those of us who are healthy and strong and have children who are healthy and strong praise the Lord for that health and that strength in us. Let us go before the Lord as well and pray for healing and comfort and peace and wisdom for these families and children as well!
