Songbird Avenue & Cystic Fibrosis

Some of you may know already that my daughter, Kaytelynn, has Cystic Fibrosis so this post is very near and dear to my heart. Pure happiness for me would be that they find a cure for CF!

Songbird Avenue has teamed up with Two Sisters Designs, Angela and Emily Powers, for September's kit called "Autumn Woods". 100% of this month's profits will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. The kit is only available for the month of September so grab it now!!

From the Songbird Avenue site:


Every kit that we work on at Songbird Avenue is special, and this kit is no exception. We are happy to present "Autumn Woods". Created with love by Angela Powers, Emily Powers, Jan Crowley and Janet Phillips. Funds raised (minus paypal fees) from this kit will be donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

From the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation website:

“The mission of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, a nonprofit donor-supported organization, is to assure the development of the means to cure and control cystic fibrosis and to improve the quality of life for those with the disease. The Foundation is the leading organization in the United States devoted to cystic fibrosis. It funds and accredits more than 115 CF care centers, 95 adult care programs and 50 affiliate programs, and has 80 chapters and branch offices nationwide.

The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is one of the most efficient organizations of its kind with 90 percent of every dollar of revenue raised being available to fund cystic fibrosis research, care and education programs. In fact, Charity Navigator, the country's largest independent evaluator of charities, has given the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation its coveted four-star rating for sound fiscal management. The National Institutes of Health and many prominent publications, including Forbes and USAToday, have heralded our innovative business model, which fuels drug discovery and development programs.”

Thanks for the heads up on this charity kit. Heading there now to get it Kimmie. I did not know about your DD and would love to help by purchasing this kit. I as a mother of a son with a chronic disease understand the importance of every donated amount to help find cures for these things. Hugs, Tammy Dunlap
