P.S. I Adore You…An Art Fundraiser for Brielle

tea_bear_charity_printHi friends! A couple weeks ago Whitney from P.S. I Adore You got in touch and asked if I would be willing to design and donate an art print for an art fundraiser to support a courageous 12-year old cancer fighter named Brielle. Of course I immediately said “yes, yes, yes” and then started sketching up ideas right away.

Brielle looks like a girl who loves the color blue (me too!), so I used this detail as the inspiration for my illustration: A sweet little tea-loving bear in a polka-dotted blue dress! I hope she will find a spot in your heart and home. My 8×10 art download is just $5 and will only be available for purchase this week (until April 13th)! Every penny earned benefits one very special girl…

Let me tell you a little bit about the beautiful girl with an effervescent spirit that this fundraiser is all about:

meetbrielleIn Sept 2010 Brielle Beus was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia. After a courageous year long fight at Primary Children’s, she was cancer free! Then in Nov 2011 a small spot confirmed that her cancer had relapsed and after another year long fight of radiation, chemo, and a second bone marrow transplant she defeated cancer once again. But just this year, on March 21, 2013 Brielle received the bad news that her cancer has returned, and this time her little body can’t continue the fight. There is nothing more the doctors can do and Brielle has decided she is done fighting. She wants to be a little girl, a sister, and a daughter not a chemo patient for the last couple months of her life. Brielle and her family are facing each day with courage and love, and are focusing on making the most out of every moment they have with one another…financial worries should not detract from the time they have together.

So today I am honored to have the opportunity to make a tiny difference in this family’s life, and heartened to know that with the power of our amazing community we can do so much to help lighten at least one burden that they are carrying. Will you join me today in helping Brielle and her family through the purchase of an art download? My print is available exclusively through P.S. I Adore You for only $5! All proceeds will go directly to Brielle and her family.

This art fundraiser also includes $5 art prints from the following generous artists (these links direct to their personal sites so you can show them some love for their kindness): Caravan Shoppe // Fox Bear Designs // French Press Mornings // Handmade Romance // Maypole // I Heart Nap Time // Katy Girl Designs // Kelli Murray / Livy Love Designs // Ohh Dear Lover // The Painted Arrow // Plum Street Prints // Rizzle & Rugee // Roxy Marj // Small Fry Blog // October Ink // Sweet Little Peanut // The Peanut Gallery // BC Prints

      It really is heartbreaking, isn’t it?
      On the positive side though, just one look at Brielle’s beautiful beaming smile and you can tell that she is someone who has and will continue to touch lives in a positive way for a very long time. I feel lucky to get to be a part of this fundraiser for her!
      Thanks for your comment T! xo Ez

    What a beautiful and brave little girl. Brielle, my little 11 year-old daughter hopes that you are at peace and wants you to know that she is your friend!

    Primary Children’s (a local hospital here in SLC) does incredible things for little ones and their families. They are modern miracle workers.

I can only hope that this small donation will hopefully help you & your family enjoy each other without worry & let you be the beautiful little girl that you want to be. Play, love, smile, laugh, enjoy. Best of luck to you & yours. And thank you, Ez for your wonderful gift.
