Let’s turn the world gold in September! 

CAC2’s Gold Awareness Project Committee has brainstormed over 40 ideas that can be carried out by organizations and individuals to increase awareness of gold and September as the color and month representing childhood cancer. We’d love to hear from you!

Please send pictures of your efforts to turn the world gold to Mandy Bowen (aab@kingsburyfirm.com); many will be shared on social media throughout the month of September—if you have questions, Mandy and the committee can also help with any questions or with implementing your ideas.


Hope to finish this tomorrow. #estherearl #thisstarwontgoout #booksareawesome #ilovebooks #backtoschool

Hey!  As September is Childhood Awareness Month, I’m selling awareness ribbons on my Etsy shop for $1 ($2 for the two larger ones).  All proceeds will benefit the This Star Won’t Go Out Foundation.  Here’s a look at the ribbons:

We love April!

I’m not really prepared to make this, but I’m gonna make it because I wanna have this… made. Like, I just… I have a lot of things to say, and I wanna be able to see that I said them.

Oh My Stars || In Loving Memory of Esther Grace Earl

I’ve been wanting to make a video of Esther since I read her book and I finally found this song and since her name meant star, I thought it would be good to make a video to!! Thank you to Mrs.Earl for letting me use their home videos (watch them here: https://www.youtube.com/user/wayneandloriearl) and to Esther for uploading such funny, thoughtful YouTube videos and for being the awesome girl that she was!! Rest In Awesome, Esther!!

A beautiful tribute to our Star <3


Well, hello again, Esther…awesome finding you at Target!


Alright now that I have time to make a proper post, I want to let you know that Helen and I’s design is on DFTBA for a limited time. I’m not sure how many shirts were left over from LeakyCon, it might be 4 and it might be 80 but if you like them, now is the time to buy! If they sell out quickly or can’t fill all the orders they get, who knows? Maybe they will be available again one day. You should tell me if you choose to buy one, I would love to know or see a picture of you in it unless that is weird to you.

Get them here for a limited time! $20 a piece

Kids with cancer have only just begun writing their stories. Please #StepUp for childhood cancer research.


Happy Esther Day!
