One of the great things about being a blogger is being able write about things that inspire me. When I have the opportunity to write a blog about people who truly make a difference in people’s lives it brings me great joy. I recently stumbled upon a site P.S. I Adore You. They have really cool merchandise that is crazy discounted and I have purchased a few items from them. Most of their vendors are moms themselves and many have shops on ETSY. I check their site a few times a week to see what they have. Most recently I snagged a beautiful clutch bag and fleece lined fingerless gloves! As I was reading their “about” page I realized that not only do they sell amazing items but P.S. I Adore You also gives you a chance at checkout to donate any amount you choose towards their cause and then donates a portion of their profit as well as all other donations to a family who has a child with cancer every month!
This touched me and I felt the need to tell everyone I know about the wonderful things they do. It all started in the summer of 2010 when Chelsea (one of the founders of P.S. I Adore You) found out that her 4-year-old daughter, Cami, had leukemia. It was pure devastation to say the least. The doctors told Chelsea that Cami had a very good chance of surviving, but they would have to fight the battle of their lives and it would need to start NOW! Cami’s battle lasted about 3 years. She had many ups and downs along the way, but I am happy to report that Cami is off treatment and officially CANCER FREE! That is when P.S. I Adore You was born. Throughout their battle, Chelsea met many other cancer moms and their precious kids who often times didn’t have a happy ending. These are the families P.S. I Adore You strives to help.
When Hello Apparel (one of their vendors) found out about their cause, they didn’t just want to be featured on their site, they wanted to take a stand and help the cause. Hello Apparel created a t-shirt with the cutest design and they even incorporated GOLD, which signifies childhood cancer. Together Hello Apparel and P.S. I Adore You are donating $6 for every shirt sold from February 18th- February 22nd at www.psiadoreyou.com. Funds raised will be given to the SLC CureSearch in honor of Cami and all her little cancer buddies.
Please be sure to go to their site and check out their daily deals. They really do have some amazing things and to know that your purchase can help make a difference in a child’s life is priceless.
You can order here to buy a ribbon t-shirt and remember you only have till February 22!
