Max, hard at work
                The MacNeil Family


The FIGHT A MONSTER campaign has wrapped up as of Dec. 14, 2013. In four weeks, we sold over 500 monsters, who found their new homes everywhere from our own city of Edmonton to all across Canada - from BC to New Brunswick and so many places in between. We had orders all across the USA, and emails pouring in from people telling us they saw us on their local news stations! The story spread far and wide. We mailed a monster to Great Britain, and are mailing one to Hong Kong. We heard story after story of those fighting their own battles with cancer who were encouraged by the monster project and reached out to participate.

The project grew beyond our wildest expectations, and as we come to an end, we're filled with gratitude for the outpouring of support. Thanks to everyone who bought a monster and shared our story, we've raised over $13,000, with all proceeds going to the MacNeil Family as well as the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

Although we're done selling monsters, we'd encourage you to continue to support the MacNeil Family. If you'd like to make a donation directly to them, visit any Canada Trust branch and make a donation to:

Trust Fund: Account # 6043880 / Branch #8969


Max is four years old. He likes to draw. He draws cats, and planes, and storms, and whatever he feels like drawing. One recent morning he decided he wanted to draw MONSTERS. Right after he started this new series, a family that we know got the devastating diagnosis that their little girl Kyla, who is three years old, has leukemia. Max and his mom got to talking about this, and about how cancer is pretty mean, and scary. Kind of like a monster. So many people we know have battled with or are battling with cancer. Right now it's Kyla that we're thinking of - and her mom, Amber, who recently finished treatments for a brain tumor that she was fighting. So Max decided he wanted the proceeds of these artworks to help Kyla and her family FIGHT this awful monster.

We don't always like to see SCARY art, do we? Some of these monsters look downright angry. But that's how we FEEL when we hear about this monster, cancer, attacking our friends and neighbours and family members. So maybe it's okay to see something ANGRY once in a while to remind us to stand behind these people in support as they fight their battles with cancer.

WHEN YOU BOUGHT A MONSTER PRINT, MAGNET, CANVAS or T-SHIRT, the proceeds went entirely to support people who are fighting cancer. 50% of the proceeds went directly to the MacNeil family to support them through their battle, and the other 50% will be donated to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada. Visit here to find out more about what they do. 

                                                                                                                                  Kyla is a brave fighter!
