Mission Monkey Day

If you’ve been living under a rock since the beginning of this month, then you have no clue what this Monkey Business is all about, but worry not, my friend!  I’m here to ‘splain it all to you!

See, one of our own, Pixie Momma has a daughter.  She goes by Monkey.  Monkey was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma during the first week of May.  Monkey is 16 months old.  She doesn’t deserve this.  Nobody deserves this.  As bloggers, we can’t cure cancer, but we can fight like hell. 
In the weeks since Monkey’s diagnosis, we have recently learned that the cancer is Stage 1 (low risk).  This is great news, but cancer is still cancer.  Monkey’s bills are piling up.  Physical Therapy has started and this isn’t covered by their health insurance.  She will also have hefty bills to pay for monthly scans and tests for the next few years.

Though we know that the cancer is low risk at this time, we are still going to rally around Pixie Momma and Monkey to provide support.  In addition, to further entice you to lend your hand, and donate to the cause, we have over 50 items that have been donated.  Many bloggers are hosting these fabulous giveaways and all you need to win one of these items is just one raffle ticket.

All funds raised will be deposited (via paypal) into an account in Monkey’s name.  Any unused funds will be passed on to another family fighting the good fight.  Pixie Momma firmly believes in the “Pay it Forward” method

To see what has been donated to help raise funds for Monkey and her family, simply visit the links listed below!  Trust me when I say:  you don’t want to miss out on these things!

You may donate any amount of money via PayPal as it's linked directly to Monkey's bank account.  However, in order to be a part of the raffle, this is how that's going to go.  If you donate the following, you get the subsequent number of entries:
  • $10 - 2 entries
  • $20 - 5 entries
  • $30 - 10 entries
  • $40 - 15 entries
  • $50 - 20 entries
  • $75 - 35 entries
  • $100 - 50 entries
  • $200 - 125 entries

The raffles for each item will start on or around July 1st.

Click on monkey to donate...please help!

If you are donating money via PayPal, I need to know who it's coming from.  For example, look at the first picture below.  The link takes to you this screen.  Press the plus sign and then indicate your blog name/blog email address so it can be tracked accordingly.


Don’t forget:  This could be any one of our children or family members.  Thank you for taking the time to help out and donate or even learn more about Neuroblastoma.  Money helps, but awareness is also key in this fight against (any kind) of cancer!
