Be a GOOD cookie, find some GREAT holiday gifts, and a GIVEAWAY...

 
https://www.facebook.com/events/400029063455971

Sadly, Charlotte lost one of its "Best Cookies" last week when Grier Christenbury lost his 7 year battle with neuroblastoma at age 9. He and his family were, and are, an inspiration to this city, and this world. This Saturday and Sunday is the Cookies for Kids Cancer Bake Sale, and Grier would want this sale to be HUGE, so let's make it that way! Head out Saturday or Sunday (or BOTH for crying out loud) and get yourself some treats in Grier's honor. Multiple locations of the bake sale this year for your sweet-tooth satisfaction.
After you have your Saturday sugar fix (or before), head to Christ Episcopal Church on Providence Road for their annual Christmas Bazaar on Saturday morning, 9:30am-1pm. From the folks behind the bazaar:
    The 2013 Annual ECW Christmas Bazaar is right around the corner! We will have wonderful vendors, fantastic handcrafted gifts, fabulous holiday greenery, and delicious homemade foods to get you in the Christmas spirit.
    Authors of "The Welcoming House" and "My Secret Angel and Me" will be on site for book signings.  A “My Secret Angel and Me” reading will take place at 10 am – so bring the kids!  The Good News Shop will also be open during the Bazaar hosting a Collared Greens trunk show!
    All proceeds will benefit ECW outreach efforts.  We hope to see you there!
 
Also, Charlotte Warehouse Sale is having a HUGE liquidation event this Thursday through Sunday, where over 3,000 items will be reduced an additional 50%! The best news? One lucky Buzz reader will win a $25 gift certificate to the event. Head over to our Facebook Page and enter between Monday morning, and Wednesday at 12noon.
 
Blessings,
The Buzz

  2. Your blog is absolutely worth to read if anybody comes throughout it. I'm lucky I did because now I've got a whole new view of this. I didn't realize that this issue was so important and so universal. You certainly put it in perspective for me.
