Give To CF And Get A Little Something Yourself!

My friend Courtney makes great jewelry and all the proceeds go to Cystic Fibrosis.  I just love the beadwork on the necklaces, and the charms for wineglasses are super cute and only $12 (nothing on the site is over $20)! Check out her bio below and visit her website to order. 

From Court's Custom Jewelry:
"I started making jewelry as a fundraiser for my son, Cameron, who has Cystic Fibrosis. There is a book and movie about a little girl, named Alex, who had CF. One day she was shopping with her mother and found earrings that were very big and extravagent and asked her mother to get them. Her mom said, "These earrings are just so pretty and magnificent that I would never have the occasion to wear them." Alex said, "Oh yes you will...when they find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis and we have a big family party and get all dressed up - you can wear them then." How could her mother say no? This inspired my CF mothers support group, "Steel Magnolias," to make earrings as centerpieces and auction items at a CF gala. I decided to continue making earrings and other types of jewelry to raise money in honor of my son and others with CF. Please help me to make CF stand for Cure Found!"

  3. How beautiful a spirit you are to do something like this. I believe that when someone special to us suffers and we are moved enough to honor them and fight for others who suffer the same thing, it's God's way of saying He made us to love.

    Following back from MBC. Looking forward to reading more!
