Fund raiser | Froggee magnets set of 3 handmade | RMHCSCO

Since we lost Tanner in 2017, just before he turned 21 after a long battle with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, I’ve wanted to give back for all the generosity my family received from Ronald McDonald House Children's Charities South Central Ontario.  I am so excited to offer “Froggee's for Tanner" (set of 3 magnets) in Tanner’s honor. “Froggee” Was Tanners best friend.  We found him in the hospital gift shop the day Tanner was born. Together they faced every day, every hospital stay, every procedure and surgery. every minute of his life. Froggee's for Tanner is a set of 3 hand poured Froggee magnets, their faces are hand painted and they are poured in small batches. Dimensions: 3cm by 2.3cm The Manic Maker provides the magnets all the labor and the packaging. 100% of All proceeds from their sale goes to provide special dinners  for the families staying with RMHCCSCO. We are so grateful to all our incredible customers who have purchased our Froggees for Tanner. We have been able to offer 2 special dinners so far totaling $1000.00 We look forward to our new goal of Sponsoring a family for a whole week. This is a very special cause not only to our family but many others.
