Eight years ago, my little guy was quite ill, so I spent quite a bit of time taking him to a pediatric hematologist.  I was a new mom at the time, so this experience was extremely gut-wrenching – As a result, I found myself constantly praying for his future and the future of every child in the doctor’s waiting room.  I was grateful for the doctors, nurses and hospital staff that dedicated their lives to improving and saving the lives of these children.  They are truly angels.

That’s why I believe that all of us in the wedding planning blogosphere should support Let’s Eat Cake!  Let’s Eat Cake! is a wedding cake competition that was created by Melissa over at MasterPiece Weddings.  And get this, 100% of the proceeds go to St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital.  For those of you that may not know, St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital is the only pediatric cancer research center that pays for all treatment not covered by insurance, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.  Eighty five cents of every dollar received at St. Jude’s goes directly to patient care and research.

If you can make a donation to Let’s Eat Cake!, please mail it to MasterPiece Weddings, 2131 NW 40th Terrace, Suite E, Gainesville, Florida 32605.

If you prefer not to make that trip to the post office, you can donate on-line too.

If you are available to be in Gainesville on February 17, 2009, consider volunteering some of your time to Let’s Eat Cake!  The competition is scheduled to take place at the Paramount Plaza Hotel in Florida.

So, give thanks for your blessings and consider giving a little through Let’s Eat Cake!

Love & Soul Always, Kay
