A Worthy Cause

Brendan chose the Victory Junction Gang Camp as his "V" for the NC Notebook Project. This amazing camp was "Built in honor of Adam Petty to provide life-changing experiences for kids with chronic medical conditions or serious illnesses."

One way to help out this camp is by donating handmade teddy bears or horses made out of black and white checkered fabric (resembling the checkered flag used in Nascar racing).

Brendan chose to make a teddy bear so his Patsy got busy. Brendan did help cut out the pattern, and he helped with the sewing a little.




And...the finished product!



LOVE this project! I am so proud that Brendan has followed through with it. We are going to mail this little bear tomorrow! Hope it brings joy to some little child's heart.

That is so awesome. I love Hole in the Wall camps. When I ran my half marathon in Disney, I ran for Team Hole in the Wall and was able to raise money for the camps. Such a worthy cause. You guys have great kids and they are growing into awesome young men. Emma is such a cutie also. She is such a beautiful little angel.
