Would you like to simplify the holidays, experience the true meaning of Christmas, and/or help fight childhood cancer?

Issy may be able to help!

And he puzzled three hours,
'till his puzzler was sore.
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought,
"doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas ... perhaps ...
means a little bit more!"


Consider the following from the Center for a New American Dream,

"The commercialized holiday culture encourages every one to focus on getting stuff, for our kids and ourselves. But many religious traditions instruct us that true joy and purpose come from focusing on the needs of others. This year, consider more gifts of charity that touch the hearts and lives of people who are less privileged."

The Brian Morden Foundation has created "Issy" to help make a difference. All proceeds from the sale of Issy will go to help fund Ewing's Sarcoma research.
"Issy" costs $10.
Please consider:

1. Adopting Issy for someone else. We'll send him to a cancer patient at Children's Hospital in Pittsburgh, a Ewing's sarcoma patient you may know or on our list, any childhood cancer patient. (A card with your name will be sent along with Issy to indicate to the recipient that Issy was purchased especially for them.)

2. Purchasing Issy for a loved one who would enjoy a cuddly bear.

3. Using Issy to be a gift card holder for a loved.

4. Adopting Issy for yourself. He's SO cuddly!

Blankets are made of two layers of fleece - royal blue with the BMF logo, and the following 3 different patterns which vary for each blanket.
