This past week I lost my Uncle Jeff to cancer. I had to do something, so I quickly threw together a Cancer Charity Event to honor him.
My uncle was one of the most lovable guys you could ever meet. He was always smiling, cracking a joke and had one of those laughs that was contagious to everyone that was around him.
Cancer is such a difficult journey that too many people have to face in their lives. In honor and memory of my Uncle Jeff I am starting a Cancer Charity Challenge.
This challenge is for everyone.
For those that know how to crochet, I am offering a coupon code for a FREE HAT PATTERN from my Ravelry shop.
I just ask that you pledge to make a minimum of 1 hat (please make more if you can) for someone battling cancer or to donate to a hospital. The hat you make does not have to be made from my pattern, the challenge is just to help someone fighting for their life.
The coupon for the FREE HAT PATTERN is “CHALLENGE”. This coupon will be good for any single hat pattern through October 31, 2014.
October is Cancer Awareness month, so this is just a jump start for you. If you are unable to donate your hat(s), or if you simply prefer, you can send your hats directly to me and I will donate them on your behalf. Just send me a message on facebook for the shipping address.
If you do not crochet, you can still help. I am committing to making 10 hats and donating them to cancer patients. If you would like to SPONSOR A HAT you can order one in my etsy shop and I will make one (in addition to my 10) and donate it on your behalf. You can sponsor a hat for charity through Cancer Awareness Month (October 2014).
Please help me spread the word and share this post, God Bless You All.
