Out of the Darkness- Walking for a Cause

Being Human

afsp-logoSo awhile back, I joined this cool page via a very well-known social network. It was a page in which people of a certain occupation could share stories, gripes, tips and tricks, blah blah blah… And it’s great. During my perusing of this page, I came across this awesome lady raising money for a great cause, and for very personal reasons.

Brenda (not a codename, this time) is raising money for the Greater Lycoming Out of the Darkness Walk, sponsored by the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. She is walking in memory of her son, Scott, and also one of her co-workers. This is obviously a cause she is very passionate about; and I can understand why- but I have come to realize that I am, too.

Supplies I used:

You can do this project with scouts, campers, kids and adults! Feel free to embellish the front of the flip flops (at the intersection where the straps meet) with buttons, silk flowers, rhinestones or charms!  There is nothing like wearing something you made yourself! Thanks for stopping by and…

I love Upside down pineapple cake but if I make one I will end up eating the whole thing myself because my husband doesn’t have much of a sweet tooth.
