American Idol & HOLLY to HOLLYwood! (ESPAÑOL)

Welcome to “The Good Stuff” where we shine a light on the good things that happen every single day!

(CHATTANOOGA, Tenn.) - By now we’ve all heard the heartwarming story of “American Idol superstar” Lauren Alaina and her cousin Holly!    Holly is a cancer survivor and Lauren’s constant source of encouragement and strength.  Early on, it was Holly that taught Lauren to sing and taught her how to choose songs that would perfectly accent her natural, God-given talent!

Lauren and her mom are in Hollywood right now compliments of American Idol, but now it is our chance to send Holly to Hollywood to cheer Lauren on!

Last night (March 5th) at the American Legion in Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, an All-American grass roots fundraising party was held to help send Lauren’s family to Hollywood.  About 100 close family and friends gathered to help show support for this salt-of-the-earth family.   The benefit was complete with a giant cake with Lauren’s picture, as well as “VOTE for Lauren” t-shirts and buttons!  The evening was a great encouragement to the family and the benefit raised some of the funds needed to help send Lauren’s family to Hollywood.   The evening was wonderful in every way, but Hollywood is pricey and there is still time to help meet this family’s need if you are so inclined!

Holly and her mom are still trying to make it to Hollywood to see Lauren perform.  They would love to make it to this week’s performance, which means they will need to fly out to California on March 7th or 8th!    If you would like to help with food, lodging or airfare … then Holly and her mom will be on there way to Cali!

To join the American Idol fun and help “Send Holly to Hollywood,” here’s how you can help:  On-line Donations may be made at www.CoCoMcCain.com  by going to the “SHOP” tab and selecting the “Send HOLLY to HOLLYWOOD” item in the lovely goods shopping cart (100% of these donations will benefit Holly and her family).  If your company can help in another way, please email us at TheGoodStuff@CoCoMcCain.com.

Our hearts are with Lauren and her family during this exciting time!  Holly and Lauren, we are grateful to you both for showing us that all things really are possible!

COSAS BUENAS con Coco McCain 

Bienvenidos a “Cosas Buenas” donde iluminamos una luz en las cosas buenas que suceden todos los días! Rutinarios actos de determinación, generosidad y triunfo al enfrentar una tragedia! Crees que cualquier cosa  es posible? Crees que estaríamos mejor si escucharamos más cosas buenas? Si crees, preparate porque “Cosas Buenas” está por llegar!

HOLLY a HOLLYwood: al estilo de “American Idol”

Ya abrán oído hoy de la historia de la  “Superestrella de American Idol” Lauren Alaina y de su prima Holly!   Holly es una sobreviviente de cancer y una constante fuente de ánimo  y apoyo para Lauren.  Desde temprana edad, fué Holly quién enseñó a Lauren a cantar y le mostró como escoger canciones que se acomodaran perfectamente  al natural don que Dios le dió!                   

Lauren y su mama están en Hollywood ahora cortesía de American Idol, pero ahora es nuestro turno de enviar Holly a Hollywood para que apoye a Lauren.

El 5 de Marzo en la Legión Americana de Fort Oglethorpe en Georgia, una fiesta de recaudación de fondos fué organizada para ayudar a enviar a la familia de Lauren a Hollywood. Cerca de 100 gente cercana y familiares se reunieron para mostrar su apoyo por esta sencilla familia.   La fiesta de beneficiencia se completó con un gigante pastel que tenía la foto de Lauren así como camisetas y botones con el logo  “Vota por Lauren”!   La tardeada fué un grán estímulo para la familia y reunió parte de los fondos necesarios para ayudar a enviar a la familia de Lauren a Hollywood.  El evento fué maravilloso en todos los sentidos, pero Hollywood es caro y todavia hay tiempo para ayudar a esta familia a juntar los fondos necesarios si es que sienten la necesidad! 

Holly y su mamá todavía están tratando de ir a Hollywood para ver a Lauren cantar.  Les encantaría estar en el evento de esta semana, lo que quiere decir que necesitarían volar a California para el día 11 u 12 de Marzo!  Si quisieran ayudar con comida, alojamiento o el pasaje de avion … Holly y su mamá enprenderian el camino a Cali!

Para unirte al fondo para American Idol y ayudar  a “Enviar a Holly a Hollywood,”  así es como pueden ayudar: Puedes hacer Donaciones en Linea através de www.CoCoMcCain.com al ir al botón de “SHOP” y seleccionar el artículo “Send HOLLY to HOLLYWOOD” en el carrito de Lovely Goods (100% de las donaciónes beneficiarán a Holly y a su familia).  Si tu compañía puede ayudar de otra manera, por favor envia un e-mail a TheGoodStuff@CoCoMcCain.com.

Nuestro corazón está  con Lauren y su familia durante este tiempo tan emocionante!  Holly y Lauren, les estamos agradecidos por mostrarnos que realmente todo es possible!
