A Headstone for Ruby

Fundraiser for Ruby's Headstone

This story really pulled at my heartstrings. 

Abby, at  Third Grade Bookworm, wrote a post about her student, Ruby, who passed away a year ago after a five year battle with Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  She recently discovered that Ruby's parents can't afford a headstone for her as they are struggling to pay Ruby's medical bill debt.  

Abby to the rescue!  She organized a fundraiser for the parents to put money towards the headstone.  

To read more about this, please follow this link.  If you are able to donate $20, Abby will send you $130 worth of TPT products that have been generously donated by TPT Sellers (too many to list!)  You can find the list by following the link above. 

Only teachers would understand the special bond we have with our students.  Please consider helping this family create a place for peace.
