We're gearing up for our biggest weekend of the year and we can't wait to share it with you. In the five day period from Thanksgiving to Cyber Monday, our goal is to generate enough to give $1 million to the fight against pediatric cancer. Help us reach this goal by enjoying our upcoming Melon Madness promotions, surprise gifts and brand new products!

Because of your support, our impact is spreading further than ever before! We just launched our International Giving Program, and we will now be giving beanies to children in hospitals all over the world as well as financial gifts to nonprofits fighting cancer internationally.
We recently released our brand new children's book, and over the past few weeks it has been amazing to see children at hospitals all over the country hear the story, get to know the characters and relate the uplifting story to their own journey through the difficulties of cancer treatment. In case you haven't heard the story, we wanted to share a little background with you about why and how we created our first-ever children's book.

The following is a guest post from our nonprofit partner, CureSearch for Children's Cancer.
One of the most difficult realities of childhood cancer is that there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason why some children are diagnosed with it. That was one of the biggest struggles for Pam when she found out her three year old son, Caden, was diagnosed with stage IV high risk neuroblastoma.
Tsihala was just over two years old when she received a cancer diagnosis. After a series of doctor visits and many days worrying, Tsihala’s parents received the devastating news that she was battling AML, a type of leukemia. Her cell counts were extremely high with cancerous white blood cells, and treatment began immediately and aggressively.
Meet Carter, a 13-year-old superhero, wakeboarder and cancer survivor! Carter battled leukemia for three years, enduring a long process of treatment and recovery.
