Livvie's Love

I wanted to write a special post in honor of my daughter Olivia and her piano teacher, Miss Brenda. When Miss Brenda joined my Relay for Life team, she suggested to Olivia that she bead jewelry to sell as a fundraiser, and call it "Livvie's Love"
Olivia was so inspired by this idea. So, with tons of beads that Brenda had and we had at home and a small donation from our local beadstore, (Beadville USA) Olivia, with the help of a few neighborhood friends, was able to bead bracelts, chokers, earrings, zipper pulls, and anklets and go door to door the week prior to the relay, with her brothers to collect donations in memory of her Aunt Julianne and in Honor of Me, (her mama) for the American Cancer Society.

She was also so excited to attend the relay event and set up shop right in front of our campsite and sell her things with her teacher.

Get this! My little Livvie and Miss Brenda raised a total of $579.00 just from beaded jewelry donations alone.
NOW THAT IS INSPIRING! SHE IS ONLY 7.

GO LIVVIE! GO LIVVIE! GO LIVVIE! GO LIVVIE!
GO BRENDA! GO BRENDA! GO BRENDA! GO BRENDA!



Here's middle son, Ian, offering comedic releif in donating our money in exchange for gourney rides around the track. It all goes to the same cause.

GO IAN! GO IAN! GO IAN! GO IAN!





And Eric.... He helped out us Cure-Rageous knitters a bunch by walking/running 5 miles for our team that night. What a kid!

GO ERIC! GO ERIC! GO ERIC! GO ERIC!

I couldn't be prouder of my family right now.

Way to go Dickinson family. You are all an inspiration. And very photogenic. Taylor loves her "EP" earings and Nick wears his bracelet as a choker.
