I am excited to be launching a new pattern today as part of the Pattern with a Purpose collection. This Pattern with a Purpose is fun bright yellow pattern that is perfect for the spring and summer.
25% of the sales will be donated to The SCOTTY Fund and the money will go directly to helping families with children with life threatening illnesses.
Why The SCOTTY Fund?
The SCOTTY Fund was started 21 years ago after my brother Scott passed away from neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer. I was 5 years old when my brother passed away. During the time when he was sick, our small community in Connecticut came together to support our family; helping make meals, providing childcare for me and my older brother, and raising money to help our family pay for medical bills. After my brother passed away, my parents decided to turn a tragedy into something positive, and they started The SCOTTY Fund.
What does The SCOTTY Fund do?
The SCOTTY Fund provides support for families with children with life threatening illnesses. This support comes in many different forms such as delivering home cooked meals at a doorstep, paying for medical bills, purchasing an ipad for the sick child to be able to face-time his or her family from the hospital, paying for gas cards and overnight stays, and so much more. In such dark times for families, The SCOTTY Fund provides light and hope.
