Less than a week!

So Metamorphosis looks like a groovy way to spend a Thursday evening, don't you think? The artists we've featured here are just a smattering of what will be represented. So many great compositions and artisan items!

And I love the idea that you could go Christmas shopping that night with us, not have to pay sales tax on your purchases, and 100% of whatever you spend goes to fight the cancers that are in children's brains. Isn't that incredible?

And if it weren't already obvious enough, this event, this cause is terrifyingly important. We realize that we're not a "national nonprofit brand" (some businesses have told us as much.), and we know that what we're attempting is formidable, but we've got to start somewhere, and we can't do it alone. This is bigger than me & Chad and the board, bigger than the family. It is our hope that enough of you join us to make this bigger than the cancer.

Over the course of the past year as planning for these events has taken priority, we've put every spare minute and plenty of our own cash into these efforts. We believe in this work. In hindsight, I can't imagine a more productive way, though, to spend those minutes and dollars than to help these families fight the good fight. I would hope that if it were me spending night & day watching my child slip away, that somebody, anybody, would care enough to help.

So another round of thank yous to all who are caring & sharing! Can't wait to see you next week!
