How do you put those two topics in the same title?
A dear friend of mine recently found out her youngest has Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, an uncommon and fatal degenerative disease that affects mostly boys. Darcy McCain is only four years old.
I can’t write about Darcy’s prognosis without crying. Some amazing people – friends, neighbors and community members have come together to raise funds to make Darcy’s home wheelchair accessible and to contribute toward therapies not funded by Canada’s national health insurance. At the end of the month they’ll hold an auction of art, gift items, vacation home stays, dinners out, etc. My little contribution from afar is a couple of Fancy Nancy dress up skirts and trinkets in matching drawstring bags. Here’s a photo of the first ones I ever made as birthday gifts for Coco’s twin friends’ fifth birthday.
I’d be happy to make a skirt for anyone who contributes $50 or more to the cause. They’re a huge hit with little girls who love all things twirly, shiny and lacy.
I can’t get the pretty Paypal button to work for some reason but you can donate here.
Email me with your receipt to request a skirt!
