Kylie has so many new friends now, we wanted to introduce you to our challenges. We issue challenges from time to time to get smiles and spread smiles. It took us only three days to get all of the US states to be smiley. After that, people sent so many smileys from all over the world that we began collecting them. This is our current map:
Green countries have smiled for Kylie
Last week, she got Kenya, Togo, and Cuba!
If you know anyone in one of the blue countries, give them a shout and tell them to be Smiley For Kylie.
From India, we had it, but this is too lovely not to share
Use Instagram or Twitter and make sure to hashtag #SmileyForKylie
Or share them on our Facebook Page
Until then, Keep Smiling!
Some fun vacation pics came in,
A horsey smile, the beach, and cheerleading camp
Pretty smiles from campers in North Carolina
The Sherlocks in San Fransisco
On a Windy day in Panama City, Bekah & Katherine decided to make a Smiley For Kylie on the sand. With the double red flag out, the people were forced to stay inside. So three bored teenagers staying in the same condo took a picture of Bekah & Katherine’s work and posted it on Instagram before they did. So here is their Smiley from four angles.
Thank you all for taking Kylie along with you. She is still enjoying seeing your vacation pics!
Bethany Pridmore is a friend from First Redeemer who has had her own battle with cancer. Since the beginning, she has encouraged Kylie and our family with scripture and words of empathy.
When we had the Bald is Beautiful challenge, she was one of the first to respond.
Like Kylie will someday, she has hair now.
Recently, when Kylie felt the sting of hearing that she wasn’t near the end of chemo treatments, Bethany shared her own story of getting the very same news and pushing on. It meant a great deal to Kylie.
Thank you, Bethany, for sharing you trials and victory with Kylie.
Yay! We went through a Broadway drought but finally got one over the weekend.
Kylie got this cute one from Taylor Louderman who was in Bring It On: The Musical
(Thanks to her sister Madison for reaching out to Kylie on Facebook.)
Remember, with Kylie’s love of the theater, the Broadway category of challenges will never close.
So keep those Smiley’s coming on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram with her hashtag
We got a flurry of camp pictures and a few leftover from the 4th of July
Then came cousins John & Lindsay in Jamaica, Uncle Ray & McKinley in water, and Megan in front of Mont Blanc, France
This isn’t a vacation pic, but just in case anyone thinks about messing with Kylie… she’s got the law on her side:
Thank you all for taking Kylie along with you this summer
