Did you know that September is Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month? My guess is you probably do thanks to local Cookies for kids’ Cancer HERO, Smarty Mom Amy Christenbury. Amy has been championing local fundraising efforts to cure kids’ cancers, all in honor of her ‘lil Smarty Warrior, Grier (www.caringbridge.org/visit/grierchristenbury), who is in the fight of his life with Stage IV neuroblastoma. Grier was diagnosed on March 27, 2007. Since that day, Amy has not stopped rallying every single person and business in this town to help in her fight.
September 1st kicks off the 3rd Annual “30 Days for a Cure” and just look at these local AND national brands getting behind this amazing woman. We couldn’t be more proud of Amy and her family! Seriously, this Smarty Mama needs to run for president – she can move mountains!
Smarties, it’s important to look at this calendar and look at it often. By visiting these businesses on the designated days, YOU will be helping children’s cancer research. That’s all I need to know to get a FREE HALL PASS to shop from my hubby – no questions asked:-) Smarty bonus – many are offering exclusive discounts on their days, Lilly Pulitzer SouthPark and Vineyard Vines to name-drop a few!
Feast your eyes, Smarty Charlotte, and enjoy the month of shopping and dining and feel good about the difference you are making!
