Leaving a legacy.

Meet the McClenahans.
They are walking a road that no one should have to walk.

Their sweet daughter lost her brave yet quick battle to cancer last week.
Just shy of her first birthday.

Although I have never met this amazing family, their story,
their pain,
their faith,
inspired me to do something.
Anything to help.
When the situation is helpless.
When there are no words.

So I went to my sewing machine.  
My comfort.  
I sewed.  
And sewed.
I thought I could make a few flower pins and headbands and give the 
proceeds to the playground they are building in her honor.

What I didn't expect was the overwhelming response.
The amount of people who wanted to help. 
To create something.
Handmade.
Special.
In Cora's honor.

So we banded together.  
An army of moms.
Of crafters.

To serve a cause bigger than ourselves.
To use our talents in a small way to make a big difference.

Today is the launch of The Cora Playground Etsy project.
Over fifty shops donating their time, their love, their creations.
To help a sweet family who many of us have never met, 
but have changed our lives and our hearts forever.

Please take a look here to see the listings.
Know that your purchase will send love to Kansas.
It will help build a legacy.
A playground for generations of children to enjoy.
A legacy for a beautiful girl who's time on earth was too short.
