A Love Printable that benefits Ronald McDonald House Charities
A Quote about Love, a printable for a good cause, 100% of the cost goes to Ronald McDonald House Charities via www.wineandglue.com
This is one of those posts that I wish would just write itself.
Or I wish that it could just stand on it’s own.
Like . . . 
“Hey look! I made a sweet new print. Only this one isn’t free. It’s $10 but all $10 go to Ronald McDonald House Charities, which is a pretty awesome cause. Go over to my Etsy shop and buy it! Kay?”
That’s not really all that poetic, is it?
So I will say this.
Doing Acts of Kindness is one of the hardest things I do as a mom. It is the quintessential act of motherhood for me, because it is at times unbearable, it is wholly important, and it comes from a place of undying unconditional love for my child.
Each act is done for Elliot.
Each act reminds me he isn’t here.
Such a double edged sword.
This print is so near and dear to my heart. It is a quote about love that I think pretty much sums up motherhood for me. It also sums up the feeling of holding Elliot in my arms. And I think because of that it speaks to me about losing him too.
And so I have made it, as an Act of Kindness.
It costs $10, which is how much a family is asked to contribute for each night they stay at the Ronald McDonald House just across the street from where Elliot lived his entire short life. And every penny of the $10 will be donated to Ronald McDonald House.
A couple things.
It’s a downloadable file! So about a minute after you buy it you can print it, frame it, hang it, and enjoy it!
The watermark isn’t present in the print.
If rainbows aren’t your thing, let me know! I’m more than happy to make it in a different color at no extra cost.
