Today our “Miss Mayberrys” is Ally (@ouroregonadventures )
Ally is a mom, a wife, and an overall inspirational woman! 🌷She is an incredible person who is raising awareness about TCS (Treachercollinssyndrome), which is the syndrome her boy Nolan has. She wants to make sure kids like Nolan are advocated for and assisted through their education and medical changes. She is teaching us that different is beautiful, and that bullying is NOT ok. She is kind and teaches us how to ask questions and be educated instead of ignorant and rude. As you scroll through her social media, you will find yourself smiling at her quirkiness, appreciating the love she has for her family, and having more compassion for others. We are so excited to feature Ally and her son Nolan today!!! Mayberrys Fashion will:
1. Gift Ally with $100 of product as a small sliver of recognition for the kindness and awareness she is spreading
2. Donate 20% of every order, placed in the next 30 days, using code “Nolan18” at checkout to the charity of her choice (@ccakids The Children's Craniofacial Association of America)

With the EARLYBIRD special, kids climb for just $10 and the the fundraising minimum is waived. It’s still a great opportunity to teach them about giving back and being a part of something bigger than themselves. For us, it turned into a platform to share with them about the ultimate service, and the atrocities of 9/11. The climb is very doable and so much fun! If you’re interested read on....

This week, a young woman walked into our building on a bitter cold morning. She looked tired, cold, and her shoes were literally falling apart. Fortunately, our staff was there and ready to help. We gave her a new pair of boots, a coat, gloves, and extra winter clothing to keep her warm. Her face lit up in joy as we handed the items to her. "Thank you" she said, again and again, tears in her eyes. After some warming up, she gave our team a big hug and went on her way. We invited her to come back soon. The smile on her face was contagious.
A pair of boots may not seem like much, but at this time of year, they can mean everything to someone in need.
