First I want to say a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has sent in a garden gnome for our Send in the Gnomes fundraiser for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
We started this crazy adventure just under 3 weeks ago and so far 139 gnomes have come in from all over the world. You can see all of the gnomes that were sent in HERE.
Our goal is to collect 1,000 garden gnomes and set out on an epic adventure this summer placing garden gnomes in public, community and children’s gardens all the way from Seattle to the St. Jude Children’s Garden in Memphis, Tennessee.
Yesterday we opened a box full of gnomes from Beth.
Beth has a rare brain tumor that St. Jude has been helping her fight for the past few years. Beth and her mom Leah wanted to be a part of this gnome a licious project and sent in a whopping 5 gnomes!
Beth, you are AWESOME and I’m glad you are getting the help you need. Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you continue to heal and I am so grateful we can help your hospital.
We placed your gnomes in our pea patch for now, but will make sure they all make it to St. Jude when we load up the Motor Gnome this summer. Stay strong kiddo. You and your friends are the reason we are doing this!
Hugs and Kisses,
