Seal of Approval

Hi Friends,
I'm just stopping by to share an update on Where There's a Will, concerning my challenge to share Knees and Paws with children in recovery.  I'm happy to report that our package sent to the Children's Cancer Recovery Foundation was received and passed inspection with flying colors.  A thank you letter arrived this week, with a stamped signature from the Founder and CEO, Greg Anderson.  What's even more exciting is that our basket of puppy love will find it's way to a child who needs to be uplifted.

  2. Jenny, I'm so glad and proud of you for doing this. A former colleague of mine has a little 4 year old girl at Sloan Ketterling in New York, battling stage 4 neuroblastoma. She writes often in her Caring Bridge journal how much things like this mean to her daughter, who is in almost constant pain and is on the second round of losing her hair.

    The joy you are bringing to those children's lives is immeasurable by any eartly standards.

  3. Oh Jenny, that is such wonderful news, that your lovely things passed with flying colours! I am so proud of you for what you are doing. Just read Shelly's comment. That is so sad, isn't it?! My goodness, we really are lucky when we have healthy children and grandchildren. It breaks your heart when you think of what some poor souls have to go through. Well done my friend x
