...because I am immensely happy after seeing this flyer. 100% of their proceeds for an entire week are being donated to CureSearch! Can you believe it? I could kiss the owner for this!
I read an interesting story on the blog of another cancer family the other day (who happen to be the best supporters/fundraisers for childhood cancer...seriously, it's inspiring). You can read the original post here, but I'll just post a section of it that stuck with me (emphasis added).
At a meeting I was at recently, I heard an interesting story. It was brought up how Glad to Give and Cookies for Kids' Cancer (they raise money for pediatric cancer research) were looking for a celebrity spokesperson/"face" to help promote their cause. Celebrity after celebrity turned it down because, "It was too sad!" Joan Cusack heard about it and was upset by people's response and jumped on board. She has no connection with childhood cancer other than being a mom, herself and working on some kid's films (like Toy Story 2&3). She just knew it was an important cause and that someone needed to care and GET OVER IT!
Shocking, huh? I'm a new raving fan of Joan Cusack.
For this reason especially, I am even more grateful when I see things like Tonyburgers' support.
Thank you TonyBurgers, for stepping up!
