Holidays for Hope: $250 to Dudley Stephens
On May 16, my life was changed forever when my 22 month old daughter Margot was diagnosed with Leukemia. Throughout treatment (and especially during the weeks we spent in the hospital), I couldn’t help but think of families who faced the added burden of worrying about how they were going to pay the bills. I knew that when I was ready, I would need to do something to help.
Lighthouse for Hope is an incredible organization that fights alongside families experiencing the physical, emotional, and financial setbacks caused by pediatric cancer. I heard about the amazing work Hannah was doing with Lighthouse and reached out because I wanted to share her story on The Everygirl. Margot was diagnosed with cancer the week Hannah’s story went live on our site.
Hannah told me about Holidays for Hope which takes away the financial worry for families in treatment who might be struggling to purchase gifts this season. Each year, Lighthouse adopts more and more families and this year, I want to help them surpass their goal. In addition to gifts, each family gets a bin of household items including with cleaning supplies, gift cards, and other necessities.
So this is where I come in. I reached out to some favorite brands and am so excited to partner to help make the holidays magical for some very deserving families.
This auction is for $250 to Dudley Stephens
Margot and I are big fans of Dudley Stephens. She says her pink fleece feels “kind of like a blanket” and I’d have to agree – they’re so cozy and make my usual leggings look a lot more chic.
