If I could only help.....

Most of us in bloggy land have heard of little Cora, and if you have not, you can read all about her HERE.
This is a little girl who in 4 weeks time went from having some ear infections to cancer, to her little life ending here on earth. Heartbreaking. BUT, her story will live on, and for those that want to help, donations are being set up so that a playground will be built in her honor. If you would like to donate directly, go HERE. Now, this is where I come in. I can't do much, but what I can do is offer these lovely small ceramic bird dishes {the yellow ones are in shop}, but I decided to put the lovely blue ones here on my blog and offer them to you with ALL proceeds going directly to the Build a Playground for Cora. I only have a handful of them, and once their gone, their gone, but by buying one, you know that you've done something so sweet, and loving to help Cora's family .
Just email me kasey@lolabboutique.com if you'd like one. They are $9.95 plus $6.50 for shipping. I will send you a paypal invoice and I will ship it right out.
*update* you girls are wonderful!!!!! all sold, and I thank you!!!

So heartbreaking...but it is so nice that you're doing this and I'm glad she will have something to honor her that can bring joy to other children! Count me in!

I am so sorry I missed this! {I am at home in bed really really sick so no visiting family today} But I am touched that you have done something so generous to help another family in their time of grief. How very sweet of you!

I was unaware of Cora's story until now. My heart is just breaking for her sweet family. Thank you for the link to her donation. I'm going to go and hug and kiss my babies right now.

Kasey you are a sweetheart to do this for Cora. When I read her story my heart was breaking and the tears were flowing. Each time I look at my sweet little blue bird dish, I will think of Cora's sweet face...and say a prayer for her family.

XOXO ~ Donna

OH Kasey, what a wonderful thing you have done. I read this story a while back and have been following it daily..when I read about her passing I just felt sick to my stomach...sick! It just hits home way to much and I can't even imagine what they are going through! Thanks for helping!

XOXO
