When can putting dogs in caps help a cancer victim? When the folks at Love Your Melon get involved.
Frequent readers of the Care To Click cancer blog will remember that we highlighted the Love Your Melon crew about a year ago. The idea behind the organization founded by Brian Keller and Zachary Quinn is simple: buy one of their Love Your Melon caps and they will donate a cap to a child battling cancer.
Love Your Melon has continued to grow over the past 12 months. Now, a project that we think pet owners will like has caught our attention.
In an effort to make life a little better for a Phoenix boy named Anthony Lyons who is battling acute lymphoblastic leukemia, Love Your Melon has started a new contest. Anthony apparently loves dogs and his face lights up when one comes to visit him in the hospital. When dogs aren't present, he enjoys looking at pictures of them.
The Love Your Melon crew is asking people to take pictures of their dogs wearing a Love Your Melon cap and post them on Anthony's Facebook event page (Photo Doggies For Anthony) and on the Love Your Melon Facebook page. As you can see from the pictures on this page, some of the results have been adorable.
A quick check of Anthony's page shows thousands of dog photos. Most dogs aren't wearing Love Your Melon caps, so even if you don't have a cap it's still perfectly acceptable (and encouraged) to post a cute photo of your dog. But we do suggest helping a child battling cancer by ordering a Love Your Melon cap. There's no rule against posting another photo of your dog wearing the cap once it arrives.
