The Love 4 Logan Foundation was created to inform the public of childhood cancer while generating revenue to purchase baby blankets, mobiles, and other items for babies in the NICU and those babies diagnosed with cancer. Through the foundation we are able to express our gratitude to those that helped our baby by helping other babies.

Right now there is a need for blankets.

Per Kortney: Hey friends & family! I am trying to get NEW FLUFFY (no thin flannel or receiving blanket) blankets together to send to Logan’s family to donate. PLEASE let me know if you would like to donate. These blankets can also be HANDMADE, but same rules, must be a warm, fluffy blanket. I found perfect ones on Amazon and they don’t cost much, but mean a lot to the families they are being donated to!

I am hoping for a few handmade blankets to donate to the children’s hospital where Logan was cared for. If you know how to knit or crochet I would be willing to donate the yarn! The blankets should be about 30×45, fluffy & warm. They would need to be ready in the next few weeks. Thank you!

If you would like to help with this amazing cause and/or if you know how to crochet or knit…or know someone else who does, please get in touch with Kortney at photoburpee@yahoo.com and use the subject line “Love for Logan” as soon as possible. Please share this with anyone and everyone!!

You can continue to follow Baby Logan’s journey on her Facebook page at Love for Logan. And most importantly, please continue to keep Baby Logan, her brother and her mommy and daddy and all babies affected by cancer in your thoughts and prayers.

Soft Batch Dark Brown Sugar Coconut Oil Cookies by Averie Cooks look so comforting and yummy.  I’m trying to incorporate more coconut oil into my baking, so I’m excited to give these cookies a try, and there is no butter or white sugar in this recipe.

I am a follower of the Food Babe, and I am so thankful for all the research she does to help keep the rest of us informed about what is actually in our foods and drinks.  One post I point people to is the Low Calorie Beverages Will Kill You Before They Solve Obesity article.  Please read it.  It will open your eyes to a lot of ingredients that are in your beverages and foods.  What did you think after reading her article?
