April Love Drop: The Kahlen Family

The arrival of a new month means it's time to share another Love Drop success story. Last month, the team collected $5,000 worth of cash and goods to give to Katie, the recipient for March who had overcome two brain tumors and struggles with the subsequent medical expenses. A surprise gift of 15+ friends arrived at Katie's house for the drop, culminating in an amazing, touching celebration. You can watch how it all went down here.

This month, the team gathers to grow support for the Kahlen family. One daughter, Brenna, has had tuberous sclerosis, a serious medical condition, for nine years; accompanying medical expenses paired with the economic downturn of recent years have taken their toll on the family. In addition to financial assistance, they Love Drop team plans to unite the artistic community to help support Kent's glassmaking work. Watch the Kahlen family's introduction video below.

Want to help?  Here are two ways you can participate:
  1. Give $1.00 - This is the best way to help out and join the Love Drop team at the same time.
  2. Donate a piece of art - They will be hosting an auction this month and would love to feature your artwork in it. Proceeds go to help the Kahlens this month, with the bonus of promoting your work.
As always, your support is much appreciated. If you can, please open your hearts for this family and drop some love. Thanks!
