We were inspired to begin Sharing Serenity when the Davenports were forced to cancel their reservation last minute because their son, who suffers from a rare genetic disease, had to have emergency surgery. Reading about their family’s story was a great source of inspiration to us. In the months leading up to this we had been working on a t-shirt design – something simple and fun that we could offer to our guests as an add-on when making their reservation. Learning about the Davenports inspired us to add a little more meaning to this simple t-shirt.

More about the Davenports:

Kruz and Paizlee Davenport, siblings in Muscle Shoals, AL, were born with a very rare, and fatal, genetic disease called Schimke Immuno-Osseous Dysplasia (SIOD). Their parents, Kyle and Jessica, have stepped into action, and made it their life’s mission to find a cure for all children with SIOD. Together, they are the Founder and Co-Founder of Kruz’n for a Kure Foundation, and with the love and support of a great community, in less than a year, they have sent a total of $350,000 along to Stanford to support SIOD research. They desperately need our help to continue the research that could prolong the lives of their children, and the lives of others. Visit to learn more, and donate now.

There are scores of people waiting for someone just like us to come along; people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give.
