Iolanthe’s Kids: Griffin

Meet Griffin. This awesome 7 year old superhero is battling a rare and aggressive form of cancer called Ewing’s Sarcoma. His Mom wrote, saying: “Griffin LOVED opening his box of goodies… thank you VERY VERY MUCH. Thank you soooo much for loving our son!!!” and sent us this gorgeous photo of him wearing his hat made out of Sunny and our Ice Cream blend fiber (the stripe), spun and knit by Alison.

Griffin loves animals (especially sharks) and superheroes, so we filled his goodybox with all kinds of fun things, including: a gorgeous handmade scuba-diving frog pillowcase from Abby and the C+A Project, a custom-made keychain from Scott Dobek, an Avengers Coloring Book from Jason + Michelle Adams, special matchbox cars from my friend Rob, and a bunch of other goodies. We’re all so glad Griffin loved his goodybox!

Very special thanks to Carol and the 1 Million for Anna Foundation for sharing Griffin’s story. xo, M

Iolanthe’s Kids: Caden

Meet Caden. This awesome little superhero is 4 years old, battling Leukemia (he really loves superheroes, so we got him this awesome Gund Batman Bear). His Mom wrote to tell us that “Caden was thrilled to receive his box. The hat is so soft. He especially loved the keychain with his name. He had to put a key right on it and then had to change into a pair of pants with pockets to put his keys in! Kids are so funny. We all loved looking at the photos of your sweet Alpacas. Thank you for such a special gift. You are doing something really wonderful these children.” (How sweet is that?) Special thanks to Scott for making Caden’s keychain, and to the ladies of NOSSG for spinning our fiber, and Lee for knitting Caden’s hat out of Mischief’s fiber.
