“Here’s to you, Mrs. Robinson. Jesus loves you more than you will know. God bless you please, Mrs. Robinson…” – Simon & Garfunkel
Excited to welcome Wisteria to The Kristin Collection. Previous posts talk about how this collection of hats was born, but here’s a brief recap:
- The collection is inspired by an amazing woman named Kristin (ironically we’ve never met but have a mutual friend who told me of Kristin’s story)
- Kristin is from Chicago and an avid ironman finisher (she’s currently training for her 15th!)
- Kristin has cancer and has been living with Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN – possibly the most painful human condition)
- Kristin has raised over $150,000 for cancer research and now, as she prepares for her 12th brain surgery in February, it’s time we raise money for Kristin.
Because she used her disability eligibility on her previous brain surgery this past fall, and maxed out her PTO, Kristin doesn’t have the anticipated finances needed during her recovery. Her friends and family have started a Gofundme site to raise money for Kristin. Feel compelled to give? I do! Click Here to give to a much deserved woman who has strength and courage beyond what I can imagine. Or, if you purchase either pattern from The Kristin Collection I will personally donate all pattern proceeds to her. Click Here to purchase the pattern.
In a world full of enormous problems and horrendous disasters that often seem “untouchable” and too far away, here’s something close to home; A cause we can so easily support and confidently make a difference. Here’s to you, Ms. McQueen!
