NikoleV Posted September 24, 2012 Share Posted September 24, 2012 Paper Flowers for Lung Cancer Awareness September 19th, 2012 - by admin http://blog.lungevity.org/2012/09/19/pa ... awareness/ Ashley is 11 years old. She lives in Pennsylvania and her grandfather suffers from a lung related illness. She found LUNGevity Foundation while researching lung related charitable organizations online as part of a project for her gifted class. As an avid crafter, Ashley decided to make tissue paper flowers for a fund raiser to help support lung cancer research. She asked the principal of her school for permission to request donations for her charity during recess. Parents, classmates, and even some of her teachers gave generous contributions in return for the beautiful paper flowers. She was so successful that she ran out of flowers on the second day and had to enlist her sister and mother to help her make more over the weekend to take to school! Below is a copy of the letter and photo that Ashley sent into LUNGevity. Thank you Ashley! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
