Motley Rice LLC is selling hugs this holiday season.

Hugs for Harper is an endowment named after Harper Drolet, an 11-year-old girl who died of a rare cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.

Harper is the creator of Motley Rice’s 2012 holiday card and MUSC Children’s Hospital’s card of the season for the Kids Helping Kids Holiday Card Project benefiting the hospital.

The money raised for Hugs for Harper will go toward research for this soft tissue cell cancer.

“After choosing Harper’s holiday card, we were moved to select The Hugs for Harper Endowment as this year’s holiday project recipient as a way to extend our admiration for and support of Harper’s cause,” Michael Elsner, Motley Rice lawyer and charitable committee chair, said in a press release.

To purchase a hug (a decorated holiday paper link that will be displayed at Motley Rice) stop by Motley Rice at 28 Bridgeside Blvd. in Mount Pleasant by Dec. 31. Each link is $1 or $5 for six.
