Help For My Niece's Classmate!

Last week I posted some pictures of 3 of my nieces and the shirts we made. Hannah (the 10 year old) asked us to save can tabs. A boy at her school broke his leg earlier this year playing football. The leg would just not heal. After testing, they discovered the little boy has cancer. The school is saving can tabs for the family. The tabs will be sold to help the family pay for treatment. He has a younger sister who is close to my 2 year old nieces age. My sister has given up 1 day a week of Henley's daycare so the mother of this little boy can have a place to take the little girl when they take the boy to treatment. 

I made these 3 boxes for my sister's family, my parents, and my family to put our tabs in. I didn't have the correct cartridge, so I used a bear I had.  I also didn't have a trashcan, but this box is gonna hold "can" tabs! :) Here is my submission for the Flaunt It Fridays: FIF #8 - Give A Hoot challenge.

-Tags, Bags, Boxes and More - (I call it box 20)
-Every Day Paper Dolls - bear
-Plantin SchoolBook - speach bubble

If anyone would like to help this little boy's family, it would be greatly appreciated. Just let me know in a comment and leave an email address (my email at provider dot com) and I will email you my address.
