Feel Good* Chair

I was instantly charmed by this STYLISH* design...
but after learning more about the story
behind it, I was more than charmed...
~I was truly INSPIRED*!
.

.... The chair certainly became more exciting and meaningful when some of the young patients helped to design it... loving the mix of children's artwork with the formal chair. Such a wonderful way to raise money for the children's charity~ an important Palliative Care Program. The Palliative Care team helps the children with symptom and pain relief, and also provides much needed psychological and spiritual support for the children, their siblings, and parents during these difficult times. The team consists of physicians, nurses, social workers, child life specialists, psychologists, and spiritual leaders...which unfortunately is not adequately funded by insurance companies. The chair is one of the items that will be auctioned off. Click HERE to read more about this inspiring story. ~BIG Cheers to all the wonderful creative people involved in this charity project! ~XOXO*

Argh, missed so many of your wonderful posts, so I just spent the last few minutes catching up. This is quite an amazing project. Like you I thougt the design was terrific and then I read on. I think this is a great way of raising money. That way you get to 'purchase' something made by the people you're helping with the donation.
