Take a look at how Maddy is doing!

6-year-old Madelyn “Maddy” Gonzales, our I Feel the Love Project March 2014 card recipient looks like she is a fighter and in good spirits even though she is undergoing treatment for leukemia. 

Diagnosed in the fall of 2013 with acute lymphocytic leukemia, Maddy often travels with her family – mom, dad, and older sister – for treatments.  

As you will recall, the family had set out a donation jar to help pay for these trips and other medical costs.  Someone stole the jar off of a counter at a restaurant! We were saddened to hear about this and knew we wanted to do something to help brighten this sweet child's day!  An update to this story: the local police department finally found the jar.  Of course, all the money was gone but the police department decided to fill the jar with money!  How cool is that?

Please join us this month as we create handcrafted greetings cards to send to Maddy. If you would like to be a part of this month's project:
