Charity Hopping Around the World - Giveaway

Welcome to the Charity Hopping Around the World Event
Hosted by

Each blog participating in this hop has chosen a charity to feature along with a giveaway.
I have chosen to tell you a little bit about a charity near to my heart.

3 years ago Princess C was diagnosed with Alopecia Areata.  Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that attacks the bodies hair. We became concerned when it looked like Princess C had rolled in a dogs bed - only it was her hair she was covered in. The doctor found about a quarter size bald spot on the back of her head. After a treatment of steroids her hair stopped falling out and began to grow back. Unfortunately steroids is not a cure, but it can help. We've been lucky enough to not have a recurrence, but it could come back any day.
There has yet to be a cure for Alopecia, or even a known cause for the disease.

The Children's Alopecia Project aka CAP is devoted specifically to helping children learn to live with this disease.
Although a cure would be great CAP's main goals are to
-Build Self-Esteem
-Provide Support
-Raise Awareness

You can follow CAP on facebook, twitter and on their Blog.
If you feel like you can you can make a donation to CAP HERE

I reached out to Kimochis because I loved their concept, and feel they do for all children what CAP does for children with Alopecia. Kimochis toys are not just a toy but a way to help children understand and communicate their feelings.  You can read my review HERE.

Chilanthropy I knew I wanted to work with as soon as I read what Chilanthropy means.  Owner and founder, Rey, has devoted his business to helping charities around the world while creating wonderfully Eco-friendly candles. You can read my review HERE
