Children Helping Children

No child should die in the dawn of life.

My 8 year old niece is raising money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital, and every year she has exceeded her goal.  We are looking forward to her doing so this year as well. Not only does she collect donations, but any gifts that she receives she donates right back to St. Jude.  I am so proud of her. I could go on and on, but I am going to let her tell you.

If you are so moved.  Please donate here:

Help me raise funds for St. Jude!

I’ve joined the fight to help end childhood cancer by participating in the St. Jude Math-A-Thon. I’m solving math problems and raising funds to help St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. You can help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude, who are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

How your donation helps:

* Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

* Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

Please donate to St. Jude to help kids like Eli (the boy who the monkey is named after) who have cancer.

Love,

Alexandra

Out of the mouths of babes…

I love being Auntie Shelly, I think it might be my favorite role in life.  I can’t have kids of my own, thank you PCOS, but I get to spend lots of time with the brood and that makes me happy.  This weekend my little miss 8 year old niece caught me off guard, as kids often do.

A little back story.  Little miss has always been fascinated that I am a witch.  Every picture she has drawn for me has some kind of witchy element.  Her current favorite is drawing me and her flying on broom sticks. It’s adorable.  Anyway, we are driving in the car, my sister is in the passenger seat and little miss is in the back.  After about 30 minutes, she says, “Auntie Shelly, can I ask you a question?”. These are always fun, you never quite know what will come out of their mouths at this point.  “Of course, doll, what’s up?”

This I was not prepared for.  She asked how I found my religion.  How does anyone find religion? Why is it so important to me?  She’s 8. Dear Goddess, here we go. After a pregnant pause, I said that it was something that was always in me, but I just needed to find it on my own.  I told her that it’s great to learn about all kinds of religions and at some point one will speak to her. My sister, who is awesome, told her that she would help her look into any religion she wanted.  If she wants to go to church, she will bring her, etc. I also told her that if she wanted to learn anything about my path, all she has to do is ask. We already do little spells together so she knows I am full of info.  (Favorite quote after doing magick with her to find the long lost remote: “Auntie Shelly, I don’t believe in magick that will turn a dog into a cat, but I think I believe in this!”.)

I hope that we were to answer her questions to her satisfaction.  It is hard to tell with kids sometimes. I love that she feels comfortable enough to ask me questions like this, and I hope I can always give her answers that help her on her own path.

Personally though, I think she is a witchling. <3
