Friendship Day: St. Jude's Ranch

I had the pleasure of volunteering at St. Jude's Ranch, Friendship Day Event, on Saturday along with my amazing husband, Mark (DJ kraM) Ulep, and friend, Alejandra Rios, who provided music and entertainment. The weather was nice, the kids had a blast and we are so happy to be part of the experience.



Thus, I made these inspirational calligraphy paintings for the children below. They were excited to take home goodie bags, dance to cool music and win game prices.








Here's one of the thank you letters from a child of St. Jude's Ranch shown above. It says, "Thank you so moch it's like you know someone goes out of there way to care! I love you Guys this means, so much!" So adorable and heart melting.




More thank you cards from the children. The ceramic artwork is by Leslie who made a beautiful piece that says, "What St. Jude means to me is the house, family, and friends."


Thank you so much to Patty Goode for organizing and coordinating this "Friendship Day" event. And big thanks to the volunteers and contributors who made this special day unforgettable.
