Deanna Stevens you have been randomly selected to win Shaded with Love, Vol. 2.  Please email me with your address.

Thank you everyone for commenting.  More giveaways to come.  Stay tuned.

Since our multi-author coloring book released, we’ve had tons of messages from people telling us how much they love them, and of course, all proceeds go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital – win/win.

This brings me to the conclusion that people love coloring books and since the charity is a worthy one, I purchased some copies to give away.  Yep, you heard that right – give away.

    St. Jude’s for sure. I think they are the best out there since all of the money actually goes towards finding cures, treatment, and paying for the care and paying for families to move so they can be with their child everyday. Very minimal percentage goes to overhead costs unlike most other charities that only give a small percentage to the actual research/charity itself.

    My favorite is the Friendship APL in Elyria Ohio. I live in Oregon now, but lived my whole life in Elyria. They have the best animal shelter, taking in dogs and cats. They are treated better than any other I have seen, and have the best support.

    I support SMILE Train. It changes the lives of children through its surgeons. March of Dimes has through its research, and I also support them, but SMILE Train reaches out in a more personal way.

    I believe there are many wonderful charities. St Judes being one of them. I have a personal involvement for hospice care. They were there for me and my parents as they were at the end of their lives. Unfortunately Both parents were ill at the same time so they had to do double duty for our family. The love and caring local hospice was absolutely amazing.

    St Jude’s is one of my favorites and so is the Shriner’s Hospital. No one receives a bill. Those children are precious. Also Wounded Warriors, Father was WW2, husband is a Korean War vet and two grandsons in the Army now. Keep up the good work.

    Prostate Cancer Foundation, this is special to me because I have many family members that have had prostate cancer. It is so easily detected with a simple blood test. Thanks!

  15. Robert TschinkelRobert Tschinkel

    my favorite charity is St Jude’s Hospital, I have been donating for years, it is so hard for me to see children suffering and St Jude’s not only provides medical treatments but brings these children comfort as well

    April 6, 2017
  16. Patricia SlovinskyPatricia Slovinsky

    As for human charities….St. Judes is the only one who gives 100% to the kids. So, that is the only human charity I donate to since their hearts are no in their pockets. Otherwise I also pick a no kill shelter for animals. After all they can’t look out for themselves so we need to help out any way we can.

    Hospice of the Florida Suncoast. They were fantastic with both my mom and my husband when they were dying from cancer (not at the same time). The people that I interacted with were angels on earth and I cannot say enough good about this organization.

    April 6, 2017
  21. Karen HreskoKaren Hresko

    My favorite charity is St. Judes children’s Hospital. They are helping the most vulnerable of our society, our children. Also support A Tale to be Told, which is a kitten/cat rescue (and basically any animal that needs help). My daughter works with this rescue and has hand fed many small kittens. Including whole litters of newborns that need to be fed every 2 hours around the clock! They also have to be socialized (this is where I help out when visiting, I get to hold, cuddle and love them (all so sweet). Again the most vulnerable and needy of society. Children and animals.

  32. Michelle Morrison MonroeMichelle Morrison Monroe

    St. Jude’s is my favorite. We try to make a donation every year. I love that they do a lot for kids and their families. It must be hard having a kid with cancer and St Jude’s makes it a little easier the family, having a place for them to stay and they don’t turn away anyone even if they can’t pay. That shows they really do care about the kids!

    April 6, 2017

    I love supporting most charities, but I have to say…I’m a sucker for animal charities. I must donate to our local shelters, and IFAW, WWF…Other than that, my other main ones are kidney, heart and lung, as well as the cancer society. As most of these diseases have hit our family and/or friends at one time or another. I love the vol 1 of these colouring books! I would love a copy of vol 2 as well. And such a great cause. I love how supportive the book world is. Thanks! 😄❤💋

    March of Dimes – My cousin was born with his lungs the size of a jelly bean and only lived 13 months. That was over 30 yrs. old. Because of the support of March of Dimes and their advance research my cousin if born today would have lived. My family & I 100% support this foundation.

  39. Heather MerrimanHeather Merriman

    I’d have to say St. Jude’s and The Ronald McDonald house. I’ve not dealt directly with St. Jude’s but I’ve heard of the amazing things that they do for these children and their families!
    I have a personal experience with the Ronald McDonald House. My stepbrother was severely burned along his lower face and neck with 3rd degree burns when he was 11. I was only around 14-15 at the time. We had to go to Kentucky from Tennessee for him to have skin graft surgery and we had to stay a few nights so Ronald McDonald furnished us with a free place to stay while we were there! They were such a blessing to my family!!

    St. Jude’s. It breaks my heart that children have to suffer through any illness and this can be so stressful for the parents. These families face so much stress with their child’s illness and finances should never have to be a factor when make decisions about your child’s treatment.

    April 6, 2017
  41. Ann WatersAnn Waters

    My favorite charities are Make a Wish and St. Jude’s. Children are a gift from God, so anything that makes a sick child just a little happier is a win for me.

    April 6, 2017
  42. KatKat

    St Jude’s is one of the best charities I was sick as a child with kidney problems and my daughter inherited it…it is nothing like what these children are going through. I feel they do a lot with the money they receive and for the kids.

    I have a 4 way tie for my favorite charity…

    American Cancer Society. My Momma was diagnosed with Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer at 42 in 1992. When she was diagnosed she was 1 of 10 known cases. She fought with everything in her until she lost that battle in 1998, 2 days after her 48th birthday. The ACS stepped in and handled everything through the end of her life … I can’t thank them or repay them enough.

    St. Jude’s Research Hospital…no family should ever have to face Cancer, especially a child with Cancer.

    American Diabetes Association, I have Diabetes…I am praying daily for a cure.

    Ronald McDonald House…my family learned first hand how amazing these places are. My nephew was born 9 1/2 weeks premature, the hospital was 3 hours from my sister. She stayed at the RMH and it was a burden lifted from our shoulders.

    Most people are probably going to name large organizations that are known nationally. While I admire many of the larger organizations and have donated to several in the past, my favorite charity is a small local one in my community. Power Connection offers food pantry services to anyone who needs it. They also have a resale shop, offer multiple classes (computer, forklift, resume writing, interview skills, etc) and actively assist in getting the community working again. This is the type of place that typically goes unnoticed but does so much good to the people that are in need of their help.

    My favorite charity is Extra Life. It is a charity by gamers that benefits Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. Once a year, we get together and play games for 24 hours to fundraise and all our proceeds go to the Children’s Miracle Network hospital of our selection. It is really cool because I have a CMN hospital locally so I get to see the impact we make in these children’s lives. It is an amazing thing to watch

    Its more of an organization, not so much a charity, but I’m going to say its The Lions Club. The reason behind it is because of my uncle… He was born blind, has had many eye surgeries as a child and into his adult life… The Lions Club paid for his special glasses, surgeries, and other things. He is also a member of the Lions Club… without them, I’m not sure what would have happened with him, but I sure am glad they are around…..

    Autism Speaks. I have an autistic child. This charity/organization brings information to the public eye. They help to advance research in Autism. They provide resources for families of Autistic children as well as to the child themselves. It is a great organization.

    society understands this, then my life will be easier.” – Frances

    Childrens miracle network (UC davis children’s hospital is near us) is always something we donate to as well as March of Dimes – My son was born with a heart condition and was not supposed to survive the night – he is now 16 and doing fine – my grandson was born premature at 1lb 4oz he survived for over 4 months before he was taken from this world.. both organizations were such a tremendous support system for our families during these trying times and I know so many more who have received so much from them during their times of trial
