Genuine Kindness

This year has had many ups and downs for me personally and professionally. From time to time something happens that makes you sit back and think WOW. That happened to me this morning.

I am always looking for unique things that ad a special umph to a photo. Things like tutus, petticoats, hats, bows, etc. A few months ago I came across this site ( http://www.clips4acure.com
when searching for some special items. I fell in love with the hats and headbands on this site and scoured it to find out what it is all about. Sheridan Savio is the creator of this company, a 13 year cancer survivor and single mom of two little girls. She wants to raise awareness and help to find a cure for cancer. To me this shows an amazing quality. As a single mom myself, I know how difficult it is to find the time and energy to give back. It is a conscious decision you have to make every day. Sheridan gives back by donating 10% of sales from her site to the American Cancer Society & Susan G. Komen Foundation.

I won't elaborate on the personal email I received from Sheridan this morning, let's just say that it caught me off guard and I was floored with her generosity, as if I wasn't already impressed with her as a person.

So I am taking this time to thank Sheridan for all that she does to give back. She does it in so many ways beyond just raising money for cancer research. When you meet someone like Sheridan, it inspires you to be a better person yourself.
