The team at OAA has been raising money for many good causes this year, this month we chose the OK Kids Korral in Oklahoma City which provides free housing for the families of children fighting cancer at OU Children's Hospital.
OAA's Charity of the Month
We're sure the kids would much rather be chasing down eggs in the sunshine of their own back yard, but we thought we would help the Easter Bunny out and drop off a few baskets for the kids until they can get well and get home. We have been so blessed by the outpouring of donations from our team members through our Five Dollar Friday's (we get to wear jeans if we buy a sticker for $5).
The excitement was contagious! When the checkout clerk at Walgreen's asked "why are you buying so many bunnies?" our answer inspired her... it turns out her life had been affected by childhood cancer and the experience of losing a child. She and her coworkers pooled together to donate 16 bags of candy to the kids baskets!
Our team will be dropping the baskets off this afternoon. There are so many great things you can do to support this amazing home, to get involved visit the Toby Keith Foundation here.
