2017 Promotional Materials

Below are some promotional materials that you are free to use. You can also use any text from our website or video’s from our Facebook page.

Keep in mind as you share that we want this day to be all about childhood cancer awareness, so we don’t fund-raise or promote other sites or cancer resources, or promote adult cancer awareness or other special needs.  Those are all wonderful things, but this day is all about fun, ice cream and awareness.

Excited to eat a scoop with you!  Thanks for getting the word out!!!

Thank you!!

February 18th was a day filled up with great kids and yummy ice cream beyond words. Wasn’t it an incredible experience? We pray it touched you in deep places and moved your heart. As we managed each picture that came in today we celebrated, smiled, laughed, cried ugly tears, and ate way too much ice cream. Our fingers are numb and our bums are sore, and our hearts are very, very full.

We are thankful for all 75 AMAZING KIDS and their warrior families who let us get a glimpse into their cancer experience and their beautiful hearts. Because of your involvement the world is hearing the message that kids get cancer too. Thanks to all of you for eating ice cream to encourage them and help infuse some smiles into their stories. Eating Ice Cream for Breakfast may not cure cancer or change the world, but it does give us all a reason to have a little fun together, to share some compassion and to inspire people into action. Having the fight of our children acknowledged and the grief and struggle seen means so much. For every picture you posted, comment you left and “like” you clicked you gave us some much needed encouragement. Thank you so much… for all of it!


Lastly a huge THANK YOU to Malia’s auntie Alisa for bringing this all together into what it has become. She handles all the technical stuff, and does it with much passion and great love, on a budget of zero and very little sleep. My husband and I act as support staff, and are so proud of what Malia’s original little birthday party has become. We do it all for you and you do it for us, and we all get to know some really incredible kids through it all. Hope you join us again next year! Same day. Same place. God bless.
