Eat Loud! at Sandwhich to support Be Loud! Sophie Foundation Feb 12-21
Sandwich is really excited to tell you about something that they have going on for ten days in February. Between February 12-21, we'll be donating a percentage of our sales to the Be Loud! Sophie Foundation.
The mission behind Be Loud! Sophie Foundation is to support adolescent and young adult cancer patients and their families at UNC Hospitals. But Be Loud! Sophie Foundation is so much more than that. Read about their mission here.
Sophie Steiner, for whom the organization is named, was a visionary photographer, dancer, and writer long before she received the cancer diagnosis that changed, and ultimately ended, her life. At age 13, a year before she became ill, she wrote a poem called, "Be Loud." Here's an excerpt:
And move with grace
Explode with light
Have no fear...
By focusing specifically on adolescents and young adults, Be Loud! Sophie Foundation is raising awareness about the unique needs of this age group. Janet, from Sandwhich, has known the Steiners for many years and she is thrilled to invite you to join hands with Sandwhich in supporting this wonderful organization.
