Take it away, Brooke!
The evening was perfect…it was an evening filled with love, an evening where friends came together to honor a special little someone, an evening where we wore red in hopes of bringing more awareness to a cause that impacts so many lives on a daily basis. It was such a special evening…one that comes around once a year but always leaves a lasting impact on our hearts.
It was an evening where I was blessed with the gift of partnering with Kendra Scott & the American Heart Association to honor our sweet Addison and to bring more awareness to heart disease in women. This is a cause that I am so passionate about.
You see, Addison was born with a couple of holes in her heart, and as she grew, one of the holes closed on its own but the other continued to grow larger and larger. We knew this hole would have to be fixed but at the time, we didn’t know it meant our baby girl would undergo open heart surgery. It was a tough time for our family, but we held to the hope that before long, our baby girl’s heart would be whole again. Surgery came and went, and she recovered beautifully. She is such a strong little girl and now she thrives as a beautiful, sweet, independent 5-year-old!
After this life event, I knew being involved with the American Heart Association was my calling. After all, it hit so close to home, and I wanted to do something to make an impact!
Because Kendra Scott is so passionate about giving back, they provided me with an opportunity and the perfect platform to host an event in Addison’s honor to raise money for the Nashville American Heart Association. I’m so happy to report that we raised $668 for our local chapter!!! My heart bursts with pride and gratitude to have had this opportunity.
Addison will always know how loved she is and how we all worked together to bring awareness to something that impacted her at such a young age. Not only did we come together for Addison, but we came together to honor ALL women and ALL families who have been impacted by heart disease and heart defects.
Thank you so very much to Kendra Scott and the American Heart Association for partnering with me for this event. It truly means the world to me and my family. I feel humbled and honored to have the opportunity to support such an incredible brand and to raise awareness for such an important cause. And many thanks to all of YOU who offered your love and support here locally and at a distance. We are forever grateful.
During the entire month of February, for every purchase of a select suite of styles made both in-store and online, Kendra Scott will donate 20% of the purchased price with a maximum donation of $150,000 to the American Heart Association.
