Caden & Layla

Hello all! Sorry it has taken me so long to get you and update on the benefit for Caden Jace that was held on Feb.6th!

First off, I want to give a HUUUUUUGE thanks to everyone that donated an item. His family was in awe of your kindness!

The benefit went great! There was an auction, lots of raffles, bands, face painting, bake sale, and so much more going on! I personally think there was a great turnout! The place was packed with people.

I just talked to one of Caden's family members, and the benefit raised $2,000 for Caden and his family! WOW! Amazing!

Thank you all so much for anything and everything you did to help.

Caden is still currently in the hospital waiting for his heart transplant. Please keep him and his family in your prayers!


Now, on to something not so great. How many of you had been following along with the story about Layla?

I ache for this family. I can't imagine going through something like this and being able to carry on. Let alone, having to worry about all the medical bills that are still left to pay.

I've noticed some EtsyMoms are donating portions of their sales. You moms are amazing! Some of you organized online auctions. Thank you. We have such a wonderful group of moms!

If anyone of you are willing and able to help this family out, please, head on over to Layla Grace's page and look for the paypal button on the right. Every little bit counts. If every one of the EtsyMoms donated just one penny...that would be OVER $2,000! WOW! Lets do it!
