This month is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and we are diving right in to make a difference. For the past two years, I have fought my own cancer battle. Two years ago this month I received my first breast cancer diagnosis. Then again this past January I received my second diagnosis. I have walked in shoes I don’t wish anyone to ever experience. My story is my own. My diagnosis’, ten surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation, and on and on and on. I own it. I am stronger because of it. I am better because of the battle.
The children who are forced to fight this fight are our bravest warriors. Their strength is insurmountable. Their faith unwavering. I continue to be in awe as I watch children fight this beast.
For Project 33 :: The Bravest Warriors, we are going to make SOCK MONKEYS again! I don’t know a group that is better than making sock monkeys than the Craft Hope community. You guys have made the cutest sock monkeys for the Little Heroes Preschool Burn Camp and Sock Monkeys for Texas. In fact, we have collected almost 1,000 sock monkeys over the years for children who needed a little bit of love.
Sock monkeys are the most fun items to collect because each box that arrives is so full of personality. We have received some of the cutest sock monkeys and we can’t wait to see what shows up this time.
We will hand deliver the sock monkeys to local children’s hospitals. Let’s run this project through September and October.
Please send the sock monkeys to us at:
