Holiday Gift Guide – MD Anderson Children’s Art Project – Frugal Novice

Holiday Gift Guide – MD Anderson Children’s Art Project

The Skinny: If you’re in Texas (or even if you’re not), you’ve probably heard of MD Anderson Cancer Center. The mission of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center is to eliminate cancer in Texas, the nation, and the world through outstanding programs that integrate patient care, research and prevention, and through education for undergraduate and graduate students, trainees, professionals, employees and the public.

The Children’s Art Project at MD Anderson Cancer Center helps make life better for children with cancer. Through worldwide sales of young cancer patients’ original artwork featured on seasonal note cards and gift items, the project has returned $27 million to programs that benefit cancer patients and their families. Each year, the project offers Holiday, Everyday and Valentine collections of note cards and gift items.

My Opinion: I love the fact that you can find adorable gift ideas here and help children with your purchase. If you don’t see anything you want to buy, you can make a donation in the recipient’s name. When my kids are a little bit older I think we’ll start donating to this and other causes in their name as one of their gifts – what a great way to share the concept of thinking of others.

Buy it For: Anyone on your list!

Win It

One winner will receive a notepad and notecards from the Children’s Art Project and I will make a $10 donation in your name. This giveaway is open to all U.S. & Canadian residents. Entries will be accepted until midnight CST on Monday, November 29.

Note: MD Anderson Children’s Art Project provided the notepad and notecards for the giveaway, however, any opinions remain honest and my own. I was not compensated monetarily for this post.

    I love the new “Winter Woods” design and the “Presents” design……but then again the phone covers are pretty awesome too. Come to think about it……they don’t have much I don’t like. My husband gets his treatment plan from this hospital and we LOVE them. I think purchasing from the Childrens Art Project is the best way to give two Christmas presents at once. M.D. Anderson strives to work MIRACLES every day.

    I’m totally a notepad junkie, so I love all the notepads. Especially the Winter Woods and Love U Lots. I love that butterfly weekly planner too. So cute and I’d use it a ton!
