I don't know about you, but when I hear a sad story I always feel compelled to do something. Sometimes things you do may seem insignificant, but when a group of people get together, it can turn into something big! Some time ago I read about a little girl named Cora who at less than 1 year old lost her battle with cancer. Her young parents set up a fund to raise money to build a playground in her memory. Many people from Etsy donated their time and money to the cause. I purchased this Messy Flower from Joy's Hope to support Cora's playground. The playground was recently completed and you can see the story here on the family blog.
Speaking of making a difference, I also saw this video recently on Tara's blog. I wish I would have seen it before my birthday, but there's always next year.
