Help Kids Thrive Against Cancer!

Your questions: Who have I been sending our finished crafts too? Answer: we have teamed up with the MaxLove Project! They are a great nonprofit organization that is sending out resources, gifts, and info to children who are fighting cancer! Every single month they receive the crafts you make at home with your little ones and distribute them to some awesome children who are fighting cancer.

It's no secret that our vision at Crafting It Forward is to give your kiddos the chance to learn first hand the joy of giving. In addition to delivering finished crafts to seniors and kids thriving against cancer, we also provide families the opportunity to sponsor a box for sick kiddos to make their own crafts. 

One of the wonderful organizations we partner with to make this possible is MaxLove Project. MaxLove is a nonprofit organization that helps superkids thrive against cancer and other life-threatening conditions. They work to maximize quality of life, and reduce serious health risks, by educating and providing ways to improve health with fierce foods and whole-body wellness. MaxLove Project believes that every child should have the opportunity to thrive in the face of even the toughest odds. Once we found out about their therapeutic arts hospital-based program that provides hands-on arts and crafts, we knew they'd make the perfect partners! To find out more about what MaxLove Project does and what you can do to help click this link.

Watching the joy on these children's faces when we provide them with these fun interactive crafts is an amazing feeling. Many of the kids find themselves bored in the hospital with nothing to do but watch movies all day. We have heard from many of the families how much our crafts mean to the children; it is a creative outlet and constructive activity that keeps their minds active. Please be a part of this joy and help us continue to send crafts to these children in need!

I just wanted to take a moment to say Thank you! Thank you for those of you who have joined our movement to craft with purpose. Tonight I received a few photos of this little one who is fighting cancer (she is our hero). She received one of the finished crafts that one of our Crafting It Forward families made and mailed forward using the address label that we provide in each box (we have teamed up with MaxLove Project to get your cute crafts in the hands of children fighting serious illnesses). It's moments like this where I know TOGETHER we are making a difference (even if it's a little one). When you get one of our boxes you build creativity and family time with your littles….But you also get the opportunity to bring a smile to a child that is fighting cancer. Thank You!!!! Image Source

We are doing everything we can to start a movement. A movement to craft with purpose. For those that are getting our craft boxes and then crafting the finished crafts forward, here is an update! Sweet SuperKid Gena is thriving against DIPG. Her SuperMomma and SuperFam are helping Gena fiercely fight her brain cancer with a diet of whole foods, healing narratives, and lots of love. Gena was very impressed that 5 year old Meela made this gift for her, and says "thank you!" Facing daunting diagnoses can be tough, but when lifted up by loving kids and families "crafting it forward," MaxLove Project's SuperKids feel the love and encouragement. Image Source
