I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer a week before my 35th birthday October 2011. To get myself through chemo, I taught myself to knit and crochet. It is an activity I enjoy very much. I promised myself to use my newly gained perspective on life to help others. The Hawn Foundation seeks to help transform children's lives by providing them with opportunities to acquire vital social and emotional skills, to improve academic performance, enhance the quality of their lives, and help others in their community. We support research studies conducted by university associated social scientists and neuroscientists and develop evidence-based educational programs for children, such as MindUP™, using cutting-edge scientific research on the brain and social emotional learning. The Hawn Foundation is committed to helping children lead confident, happy, and successful lives. We also assist educators to create supportive learning and social environments that effectively address children’s mental and physical wellbeing while nurturing the growth of creative, reflective habits of mind. My fundraising goal is $5000 to help a needy school afford this wonderful program for it's students. I am also accepting art and handmade items to sell though Etsy. All proceeds benefit the Foundation. Thank you http://www.thehawnfoundation.org/welcome
