Crafts of a Cause

This Saturday!
Sneak Peak here
With it's variety of vendors, this boutique has something for everyone!

This boutique is extra special as it is a fundraiser for the Ms. Wheelchair foundation. A foundation that is very dear to my heart. We can not thank all of our amazing vendors enough, as all of the booth fees for this boutique were donated to the foundation! 

The mission of the Ms. Wheelchair foundation is a powerful one as they are helping to build a brighter future for individuals living with disabilities.  We have had such an amazing experience, just in the few short months that we have been a part of this foundation. Katie has met so many remarkable people who have been incredible examples to her and our family. They have become mentors and dear friends.

Here is the official mission statement of the Ms. Wheelchair foundation:

The mission of  the Ms. Wheelchair California Foundation is to recognize the achievement of women in wheelchairs. Each year Ms. Wheelchair California will strive to educate and advocate for Californians living with disabilities. Ms. Wheelchair California is not a beauty pageant. It is a competition based on advocacy, achievement, communication and presentation. It's purpose is to select the most accomplished and articulate spokeswoman to represent people living with disabilities. 

Hope to see you Saturday!!
