I'm kicking off the week in high gear! The amazing April of Funky Vintage Lovely has graciously offered one of her beautiful handmade creations. She was more than willing to donate and I suggested this lovely necklace because 1) I heart it so and 2) I think it's simple message says just the right thing. And wouldn't it look perfect with your entire summer wardrobe???

Keep Calm + Carry On Charm Necklace - Turquoise

If you're unfamiliar with April, hurry over to her blog and take a peek. She creates lovely treasures and stocks her shop regularly and writes a wonderful post each week with her husband. I was lucky enough to win a membership to her Pretty Little Lovelies Club from Dandee and have been in love with everything she has sent. I'm so thankful she agreed to help me with my fundraiser this week. Fashionable, generous, in love with her husband and kids? April is my kind of people. Thanks April!

Unfortunately, April knows all too well about the devastation that cancer brings. Her younger brother, Jason, died of brain cancer last August. This is what she says regarding that time:

I will say that being able to help take care of my younger brother his last year of battling brain cancer was one of the most special things I've ever done. What precious times and fun memories I have with him. They are treasured memories and get me through the difficult days without him now.

Makes you want to get in on the fight, doesn't it?

Things to remember: bidding starts at $10. Post your bid in the comments section and we'll keep going until 9 pm. If you copy this post to your blog or Facebook, you will be entered into a drawing to win a special thank you from me. The more who know about this, the better we'll do and I need all the help I can get!

A world without cancer?

What could be better?

Happy Bidding!
