This n’ That

Samster Mommy Tutu Drive
 My friend Natasha from Samster Mommy contacted me and told me about a wonderful event — Tutu Drive 2010 — she is sponsoring for The Princess Alexa Foundation.
This foundation is amazing —They take dress up clothes and match them with kids who are seriously ill so they can have a bit of fun and make-believe. A little something to put a smile on their faces during such a hard time. Isn’t that sweet – and a wonderful idea!!!
The foundation was started by a mom named Crys in honor of her daughter Alexa…

Alexa began battling cancer just before her 2nd birthday, throughout her battle with cancer Alexa loved to go everywhere in princess dresses & became known as “Princess Alexa”. Sadly, she passed away in 2008 but her legacy can live on by bringing joy to sweet children battling illness.
Go over to Samster Mommy and find out how you can help. There are two ways: You can buy a tutu during the Tutu Drive or you can make a Tutu to donate — or you can do both! Go grab the button and let’s spread the word!!
Check it out!
