Both my husband and I have family members who have suffered for years with Multiple Sclerosis. It is terrible and slow, and changes people ways you can never really anticipate. That is why it is so important to support MS research.
Not long ago I went searching for gifts from shops and companies that support life-saving research. And I was so happy to discover Dawn's shop on Etsy. Blinky Muffin offers a line that Dawn calls "Monsters for MS." Her handmade monsters are just too cute! Each one is crafted from 100% new material and are hand sewn and stuffed with eco-friendly stuffing (made of %100 recycled PET bottles). "My 'Monsters for MS' collection is a family of one of kind, handmade sock creatures all ready to find new homes. $20 of the purchase goes towards the MS Society of Canada. Over $2500 has been raised since 2009!" Her little monsters are doing quite a bit of good.
And like my family, Dawn's life has also been touched by someone suffering with MS. " have a beautiful and spirited friend with a bottomless heart who courageously lives with MS every day. She has a sense of youth and humour that is inspiring, and every little monster has a bit of her in them!"
You can get to know Dawn at Blinky Muffin a bit more, too. Find her on...
