Spicy Monkey :)

A few months ago I blogged about this amazing organization, The Ronan Thompson Foundation. I wanted to help and bring awareness to this terrible thing called cancer. I have been spreading the Ro love and my mom has been giving out bracelets to our family/ friends! I have followed along the blog of Maya Thompson and heard about her for quite some time (thanks to my madre who has followed her since she was in NYC with Ronan some years ago). You may have heard more about Ronan in the news lately, two weeks ago the Stand up to Cancer televised special which brings entertainment celebs together featured a song for Ronan by Taylor Swift. A beautiful yet emotional song about a blue eyed boy who dies from cancer and the lyrics stem from his momma Maya's blog! You can download the song via Itunes and the proceeds support the Rockstar Ronan foundation! (The song sky rocketed to #1 on itunes-- go download it!!!!) Last Thursday, Maya held a small trunk show to showcases her newest hobby to keep her mind busy - jewelry making!!(and all proceeds also go to her foundation). Her dreams of building a research center  downtown Phoenix are amazing and inspirational. She recently won a Chase Community Giving grant of $50K by fellow supporters who voted daily on facebook and  that award will go towards her foundation.

Spread the word and order your bracelets and tee-shirts online and watch this video below! Dell will donate $1 to every view to pediatric cancer ( click here )

Here are some I picked up from the trunk show!
