Many of you know our incredible Director for our Iowa Chapter Lucy and her "best girl" Elayna. In honor of Elayna's Birthday, the Unravel community is adopting a new Unravel holiday, "Yes Day!"
What is Yes Day? There is no one better to tell you about Yes Day than Elayna’s mommy, Lucy Sandeen:
“We first began turning a no into a yes for our daughter, in honor of Jennifer Lynn Kranz. The concept was special from the beginning, but it became even more meaningful to our family when our daughter, our sweet, little 5-year-old Elayna, was also diagnosed with cancer. Her life was not easy after that and every opportunity to turn a no into a yes became that much sweeter.
Sometimes, the yes was as simple as giving in to her little girl whims— letting her stay up a little later to watch a show before bedtime or packing up and heading to the pool when she wanted. We created opportunities for a yes because they made us all feel so good. We enjoyed reverse dinner (going out to ice cream before eating dinner) and we threw a birthday party for a beloved teddy bear. We had so much fun doing these things and those memories are so cherished now.
Yes Day is about doing something with your kids that you wouldn't normally do. It's your chance to make the exception, break the rule, and say yes. I promise that you will never regret the memories that you make with them when you say yes.”
We would love for our Unravel community to continue bringing joy to their families with the Yes Day tradition in your homes. Post your Yes Day adventures on November 29th, tag Unravel, and use #2021yesday.
Anywhere that brings you
and your family joy!
