Joyce was caught being awesome!

Joyce Samples is a very special grandmother. Her willingness to help and her constant support of her daughter and granddaughter seem to know no bounds. She is a problem solver, and when she sets her mind to getting something done, it is going to happen.

We recently asked Joyce to make "lovies" for GP2C to send out to our girls as birthday gifts in September. In less than a month, she made 40!

Evie with her "lovie" that her Mimi, Joyce, made for her and 40 other girls who have Rett Syndrome.

"She is awesome, not just because she is my mom or Evie's Mimi, but because she is willing to be there for all the Rett girls and their families," said Candace (Joyce's daughter)

Joyce goes above and beyond to lend support to GP2C through volunteering. She is AWESOME and we appreciate her endless efforts. THANK YOU JOYCE!

GP2C Launches New Superhero Dolls!

From chalk, to digital, to print to plush! Our GP2C Superhero is now huggable!

Our little superhero, Anna Cate, first appeared as a chalk drawing at a 5K race in Richmond, VA in November 2012. The artist, Jen Lange, then took her to the digital world. Soon after, Jen created different superhero girls inspired by each of our board and advisory board members' daughters.

Once we had such an amazing group of little superheros, we started to print them on banners and postcards and more!

We thought, "they are so cute and just jump off the page!" hmmmm maybe they CAN just jump off the page and we can make them into dolls so that everyone can have a superhero inspired by their daughter or another little superhero in their lives!

Introducing the GP2C Superhero Doll collection!


Each doll is 26" tall. You can choose hair and eye color as well as skin tone. There is a limited number per week that we can have made, so order soon if you want in time for the holidays!

Thank you to Emilie and Anna Cate Rabke, Adina Nickerson, and Jen Lange as well as Sabrina Nalbantian of Le Petit Creations!
