I’m a little behind in posting my planner spreads (follow me on Instagram @quirkyheart to see them) but I had to post this one. It’s very special for 2 reasons!
Reason #1) #GoGoldForChildhoodCancerAwareness
Gold doesn’t photograph well but I promise there’s tons of it on that spread! It sparkles in real life I swear!
September is pediatric cancer awareness month. Did you know? Probably not! Unfortunately, awareness for childhood cancers is lacking, despite the fact that it kills more children every year than all other diseases combined.
I’ve been reading up on it and the numbers of diagnosed cases and deaths are quite different between the USA and here in Canada but it’s still the same story in both countries – we need more awareness, more research and more funding!
Before everything turns pink for Breast Cancer Awareness in October, consider going GOLD for the little ones! If you’d like to read up on pediatric cancer and the “Go Gold” awareness campaign, here are some great links:
- Go Gold in September
- Cure Search
- Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation
- Public Health Agency of Canada
Throughout the rest of September I will be donating all my proceeds from the sale of the “Basic Witch” planner set (see my shop or the blog post before this one) to Cure Search which is a charity that focuses on targeted research for childhood cancers.
I know, I know. It’s not exactly a thematically suitable product to be selling for this cause but it’s the only product I will be releasing this month and I still wanted to contribute somehow. If you decide to purchase the kit, I thank you in advance for your donation!
Reason #2) DOCTOR WHO IS BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Did you watch? Did you love? I might be warming up to #12. That guitar scene, tho!
Here are a few closeups of my favorite parts in the spread. So many Dr. Who references!
I was totally #plannerfamous for 2 seconds this week when Amy Tan mentioned me in a comment!
One last thing before I go! Those Doctor Who doodles are amazing right? Here’s where I got them:
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!
