Pay it forward

I have been fortunate. I can’t even tell you when I first bought my KNK. I know it has been well over 10 years ago. When our youngest son joined our family 32 years I had to quit my job and stay home to care for him because he had significant health issues. So our family of 7 learned to live on one income.
I saved for a long time to be able to purchase my first KNK. When I first starting making plaques with my KNK every roll of vinyl was a major purchase. But every penny I made went back into materials, and now I have an over abundance. I decided to pay it forward.

The county that I live in has a Relay for Life, a walk to benefit cancer research. My second son was diagnosed with stage 3 malignant melanoma 6 years ago. The treatment he had nearly killed him, but he survived! And the list of friends and family members who have battled cancer is unfortunately too long to list. So I decided this year to make plaques for our local relay and have them sell them at the relay and have the money go toward cancer research. I have spent about 1 month, on and off making over 60 signs. Here are some of them.

The designs are both purchased and my own designs. I hope that each and everyone of you who are fortunate enough to have their own KNK pay it forward in some way. Make a plaque for a benefit, send a card to a friend. It doesn’t have to be 60 plaques, just something to brighten someone’s day.
