Hey Sassy Peeps!
I don’t do this very often but when I do I always like to make sure that is comes from the heart. Lately I have been making it a point to either share a cause with my readers that I totally believe in and/or give back to my community.
That is why I am so happy to have partnered with American Cancer Society®, Extended Stay America to share “The Story Of Hope”. For those of you who don’t know….
Each year, over 5,000 children under the age of 15 are diagnosed with cancer. It’s a diagnosis that can turn a family’s life upside down. In an effort to bring awareness to the issue, Extended Stay America is introducing Hope.
Hope is a cuddly symbol of kindness and comfort. Extended Stay America – through the support of their guests – is committing to provide 10,000 Hope bears to children’s hospitals throughout America with the simple goal of bringing a smile to the face of a child battling cancer.
Although I don’t personally know a child who has been diagnosed with cancer, I have been directly affected by the disease more than a few times. Not only do I know several friends who have had the cancer, my grandfather died from it two days before Christmas when I was only thirteen years old, and my grandmother died from it on my nineteen birthday. Needless to say those were not the easiest times in my life. That is why I was so eager to share the #GiveHope story with my readers. Our children are precious and if WE can give HOPE to a child with cancer for just $10 that would be awesome.
For those who would like to bring Hope home to a friend, family member or loved one, Hope can be ordered and delivered to your home for just $19.99. For each Hope bear purchased, Extended Stay America will donate $5.00 to the American Cancer Society toward pediatric cancer research. CLICK HERE TO DONATE NOW!
