Sunshine Knits for Courtney!

UPDATE #2: 8:30 pm The are all sold. Thank you to those who purchased, those who made a donation and those who offered their prayers! Your generosity is inspiring.

UPDATE #1: 12:40 pm The only pair left is the perfectly pink Carnation gloves. Thank you so much for loving the Lenaburgs and supporting my dear daughter's efforts.

My sweet girl has been following the story of Miss Courtney, the Warrior Princess, and has begged me for something that she can do to help. If you don't know the Lenaburgs, please take a moment to read a little about what their life looks like right now as they prepare to say goodbye to their beautiful girl and return her to our Eternal Father's glory all the while facing impending unemployment.

Courtney's body has been racked with seizures since she was five weeks old and after 22 years of fighting, her body is just worn out. Sunshine has come to know Miss Courtney through Miss Mary's blog and we are so thankful she has shared her precious girl with us and the world so that we can offer our prayers and petitions on their behalf. But we are also "doers". And when someone is struggling, we want to do something to help.
We came up with a little fundraiser idea for Sunshine. She contacted the designer of a pair of fingerless gloves and got permission to use her pattern for gloves to sell on Etsy. I am so proud of her initiative!
Today, I have posted four pairs of fingerless gloves hand knit by Sunshine herself in different colors and different yarns. Most of them are one-size-fits-most teen/adult women's hands. One does run smaller than the other so it might fit a child's large hand.
They would be perfect to tuck into a teen's stocking or spunk up a winter outfit with some color. ALL of the proceeds will go to the Lenaburg family to help with Courtney's extensive medical bills and future funeral expenses. So, you get to make a donation and receive a beautiful pair of fingerless gloves in return which just might give you a jump start on your Christmas shopping!
If you live where winter barely breaks below 70 degrees and  have no need of any fingerless gloves or would like to make a donation just because, you can use the Paypal button on Mary's blog or use the GoFundMe website that some friends established to send them a little financial assistance if you'd like. I know that prayers and sacrifices are always welcomed.

Head on over to my Etsy shop to see more of these gorgeous gloves and decide how you'd like to help this dear family in need.
