Behind the Story
Robert's Snowflakes

Robertís Snow: For Cancerís Cure, a fundraiser on behalf of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, gives parents, childrenís book lovers, and art aficionados a chance to bid online for one-of-a-kind, original snowflake art created by over 200 childrenís book illustrators.

Grace named the fundraiser after Robertís Snow, a book she wrote to cheer up husband Robert after he was diagnosed with cancer and could not enjoy the winter weather. After Robertís subsequent relapse, Grace turned to her illustrator friends and asked them to contribute their collective talents to the fight.The response was tremendous--the artwork created was so amazing that the 2004 snowfakes were immortalized in thie book, Robert's Snowflakes.

With 100% of the sale of the snowflakes and 100%of the royalties of this book going to fight cancer, what better reason is there to wish for snow?
