It's fitting that this year's theme for the North Branch 4th of July festivities is "On the Farm" since we, the Gyomory's, grew up on a farm. It's on the farm where I will be with my two boys this 4th of July, leaving my poor husband to fend for himself this year since the 4th unfortunately falls mid-week, ugh...! Anyways, Luke's Lids will hopefully be out in full force this 4th of July but I need some help, desperately! I'm looking for a place in town to set up a table during the children's events and the 4th of July parade. I tried to contact the coordinator of the North Branch events but never heard back from her, soo....if you, my dear supporters happen to have a friend or yourself, own a business in town, might you be willing to help me out! I would love to be able to set up a table in front of a business during all the events to try and sell some bows and I'm thinking about doing "Sponsor A Bow" to help off set the cost of purchasing 200+ hats for Special Days Summer Camp. If you know of a business where I might be able to do this, please contact me, firstname.lastname@example.org!!!!
I'm also hoping Luke's Lids is going to have a float in the parade which would be so special! North Branchers support their own and I know a float would have a big impact on the number of supporters we have, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed it works out!
I am in full force bow making mode, trying to get all the hats ready to send out to Special Days for camp at the end of July. My fingers are blistered from hot glue burns but it's so much fun! I don't know about you but crafting is kind of like mediating for me!
I'm not sure how many people are still following this project, but for those that do, know I am so grateful for the support. This project means a lot to me and although I haven't been able to do as much this year, I still feel like what we have been able to do does make a small difference in the lives of those special children fighting cancer. I have started following a lot of prayer pages on Facebook started by parents of children with cancer and I cannot imagine how trying this disease is on a family. I wish there was so much more I could do and if I had the means I would, but I don't and so I hope that this project helps to bring a small smile to a child who should be home playing in mud puddles but instead is trying to weather the effects of chemotherapy. It's so unfair but I pray that these children and their families know how loved they are and how hard we pray for their healing. Thanks again for reading and being a part of this project with me. God Bless You!
