I just saw this article about how my post and my tweets helped raise awareness about THON and it honestly made me so happy. But it wasn’t just me who did this, it was all of YOU who took the time to go to THON’s website, learn more about the cause and donate. You should all feel really good about yourselves for giving back to something so wonderful and making a difference in the life of a child. I’m so impressed and inspired by what those Penn State students do and the level of devotion they put towards THON and I hope some day soon it gets the worldwide credit and attention it deserves.

THON, something that is already big, could one day become even bigger. We all just have to continue to spread the word. For those of you who want to catch all the action, you can actually watch THON weekend live on www.thon.org, so tune in February 19th-21st!!! 
Thank you so much again to everyone who donated — beyond touched your generosity! xoxoxo
For The Kids,

Help Beat Childhood Cancer

Last month Lamar and I took part in a holiday special called Holiday of Stars where we were introduced to a little girl named Isabelle whose best friend Jasmina was battling Leukemia.  Well yesterday Lamar and I received the devastating news that Jasmina, just 6-years-old, had lost her fight against Leukemia.  My heart goes out to her friends, family and everyone that knew and loved her.

Cancer is a vicious and heartbreaking disease, and it seems even more cruel when a child is taken.  While we may all feel helpless, there is something we can do.  A friend of mine told me about a charity called the Penn State Dance Marathon (THON) where students rally together each school year to raise money for the fight against Pediatric cancer. It’s the biggest student run philanthropy in the world, having raised over $61 million in the past 35 years. Each year culminates in a 46-hour no sitting, no sleeping dance marathon involving over 15,000 student volunteers. It’s comforting and truly inspiring to know that because of these students’ devotion, families have received the support they need, both financially and emotionally.

Watch the video below to take a closer look at how the Penn State students are helping these brave children win their fight against cancer, and go to www.thon.org to make a donation.  EVERY PENNY HELPS!!!!!! Please donate what you can!
