I know so many of you have seen my posts for #LoveforLucas (previously #CrayolaLoveforLucas) – The past 4 years I’ve help to collect crayola art supplies to send up to The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) in honor of Lucas.
Born in 2010, with a congenital heart defect (CHD), CHOP and their amazing team and resources helped baby Lucas be able to spend 17 days with his parents. 1 in 100 babies are born with CHD. This annual Crayola drive keeps Lucas’ memory alive and gives children currently being treated at CHOP a much needed art therapy outlet via the Child Life Specialists Team.
This year I’m one upping the challenge:
In Honor of baby Lucas, a CHD heart warrior and with the help of #LoveforLucas and #GivebackforGrumps we are going to stock an Art area at the Healing Hearts Respite Foundation (HHRH) .
Located in Corolla, NC – The respite house is a place for families battling life threatening illness or disease to spend time with their family and loved ones, pausing for a moment to breathe in the midst of their emotional, physical, spiritual and economic crisis.
As many of us know.. every beach trip can have its rainy days – let’s give these families battling cancer and terminal illness’ a well deserved art therapy outlet in honor of Lucas. ❤
Amazon link below will ship directly to my home for delivery to the Respite house in November! Any Northern VA local friends are welcome to drop off any donations!!
