The Elves have Arrived!

Are Elves from Catie causing mischief around your house? Here at CURE Childhood Cancer, the Elves have already started running wild!

For those of you who haven’t heard of Elves from Catie, these little Elves visit children’s homes only during the holidays. Each Elf is totally still whenever there are people around, but as soon as you go to sleep, work, or school, the elves create mischief! When you come home, you’re sure to find the elves frozen in place, caught right in the middle of trouble!

Apparently this little guy had a sweet tooth.

Elves from Catie were created in memory of Catie Wilkins, one of CURE’s Kids who lost her battle with cancer in 2007. For each Elf sold, a portion of the proceeds is donated to The Catie Wilkins Memorial Fund, which supports CURE Childhood Cancer. These Elves add a lot of fun to your household during the holidays and your children will be thrilled to uncover what the elves have been up to each night. You may purchase an Elf and Book Package or individual Elves in-stores or online at Swoozie’s or at www.elvesfromcatie.com.

Not only do these Elves make a great gift for your children, but they also make an amazing gift to send to a child with cancer who will be spending time in the hospital this holiday season. If you would like to donate an Elf to a child, you may do so online at www.elvesfromcatie.com or in-store at Swoozie’s. Swoozie’s will ring up your Elf at checkout, keep it, and deliver all the Elves to a hospital here in Atlanta.

You also may have seen Elves from Catie featured on NBC 11Alive’s Atlanta & Company on Wednesday! Click the image below to watch our segment:


Elves from Catie will be featured on the set of Atlanta & Company all December – creating mischief, of course! Stay tuned to see what kind of trouble they get into.

We hope all of you support CURE by starting the Elves from Catie tradition in your household. Thank you for your continued support and have an amazing holiday season.
