Just got a little candy cane scented missive from the North Pole.
Jolly Old Saint Nick has asked that all of us moms and dads see if we can’t slow down for ten minutes and write a letter to a friend of his. This friend’s name is:
Tanner is a very cool 6 year old. He has all the regular things you would expect from a 6 year old, including an imagination that helped him to craft a drawing of an airplane he could fly to visit a new cousin. What you wouldn’t expect is that he also happens to have Muscular Dystrophy.
Tanner is very brave about it and focuses more on having fun, than being sick. Some very special people got together and held an auction to raise money for MD research. The auction is over, but Tanner is still a 6 year old.
Do you remember being six?
Do you remember what it felt like to get a letter in the mail?
Didn’t happen very often, but boy when it did. Super cool.
Now imagine having the power to give that kind of incredible feeling to an adorable little boy. I sent something out yesterday. The girls and I are going to send something else out this week. I am sharing Tanner’s information with you all so that maybe you could send him postcard from your corner of the world. I’d even wager that sending it will bring you just as much of a rush as receiving it will Tanner.
