This past year I had the chance to have a special little soul in my Kindergarten class. Her name is Maddy. She has done AMAZing things at such a young age. If you follow my facebook page, or are friends with me personally you have heard me sing the praises of this little saint in the making. Maddy has chosen to share her heart in a special way with those going through hardships, most specifically cancer. She was a TEAM CAPTAIN at this year’s Relay For Life and she led the group beautifully. She designed t-shirts that raised money for her cause and had people in all 50 states sporting her outfits. She hosted a huge carnival that raised money and spread awareness and she even led her very own meetings where we as adults listened as our team captain MADDY led the way. The list goes on and on of the wonderful work she has done – and is still doing. Even after the relay she continues to be involved this summer with lifting the spirits of children battling cancer, while also helping others to know their story. In a word this one little girl has done BIG things and has taught me so much in her young life. Her family supports her journey and also has a big role in helping those who are in need of cheer, support, prayers and contributions. It is plain to see that this apple does not fall far from her family tree!
A few months ago, I announced a Maddy’s Heart Giftaway. This giftaway was to raise money for Maddy’s Heart team and wow did you all give from your heart! I could not thank you enough and I also know that Maddy and her whole family would also like to show their appreciation for your donations. Each and every gift from you will be used to help fight the good fight and hopefully someday cure cancer. I know that is Maddy’s wish and so many of us share it with her.
The winner of the Maddy’s Heart Giftaway receives the following:
Maddy, her mom and brother met up with me for lunch on Monday and she selected the winner. Drawn at random by Miss Maddy herself. And so now, without further ado, the winner is…
