Rally Ruby

This is Ruby.  She is 3 and she's battling stage 4 melanoma. Here is her story: http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=39795154 There's something about childhood cancer that gets us rage-y and pulls at our hearts simultaneously.  We'd love nothing more than to help rally support for Ruby and her amazing family, so we've decided to create a line of 3 products that are all about her.  100% of the proceeds will be donated to family. We're so excited about our Ruby products.  Please help us show this family some love.
