I just wanted to take a quick minute to share with you Bows for Ruby in the hopes that I can help get the word out.
Bows for Ruby a fundraising effort in behalf of a young family who recently and unexpectedly lost their baby girl to liver failure while waiting at UCLA medical center for a liver transplant. Ruby was born just a month before our little boy and the story of this family absolutely broke my heart. I cannot imagine the amount of strength it takes to go through something so horrific as seeing your child go from a healthy 3 month old to deathly ill in a matter of months.
The organizer of this fundraiser is making bows and headbands and donating ALL of the proceeds from the sale of these items to Ruby’s family. Some auctions of goods and services have also been started with donated items again with all of the proceeds going directly to this family. If you are interested in purchasing a hair bow or head band to help this family, you can visit the Bows for Ruby Website or the Bows for Ruby Facebook Page. I have sent Jen, the organizer some of my fabric to make into bows to sell. You can also visit The Taylor Family’s blog to read more about their heart-wrenching story.
