A special thanks to everyone that welcomed and encouraged us as we brought Foundation flyers by your schools today! It was such a pleasure to meet so many that Mrs. Honeycutt personally touched. It only solidified our commitment in doing our part to help those of you that help so many on a daily basis! Thank you for everything that you do and your continued support of our cause and please don’t hesitate to c
Hi, Mrs. Honeycutt gave me the gift of words. I intended to go to college and be an artist. Instead Mrs. Honeycutt inspired me to write. I was so worried as to how to write my paper. She took time out of her busy day to help me. She inspired me. I remember her smile. Whether it was a bad day or a great day she always smiled. Thank you for the gift of words Mrs. Honeycutt. Through the years you touched so many lives. I always looked forward to seeing her. Always dressed so nice and smiling. You are missed so very much. Always, Stephanie
Due to the tremendous support and fun had at last year’s Relay for Life, we will be participating again this year in Vickie’s honor at Jay M. Robinson High School on May 14th.
In order to help raise awareness for the Foundation we are asking for your help. Instead of making a direct donation to the Relay for Life site, please consider making your donation to the Vickie S. Honeycutt Foundation as we continue to grow and try to help others. However, being that the Relay is such a fantastic cause we want to offer them our support as well. So for EVERY donation made through the Foundation site between now and May 1st we will MATCH your donation with a lump sum donation to the Relay for Life on May 2nd. Such a great way to support both causes!
Please go to our Donation page here to place your donation.
Also, we had a great time last year and would love to have more smiling faces there with us throughout the day. So please consider going to our Relay page here (http://main NULL.acsevents NULL.org/site/TR?pg=team&fr_id=33413&team_id=926403) and Joining our Team. Hope to see you there!
It is with such pride that we can announce the first family we were able to help! Our first donation went to a very deserving family in Charlotte, NC. Please read about little Liam Fudge, such an inspiration. It is only with your support that we were able to make this happen so thank you so much and please help us continue to spread the word so we can expand those we touch even more!

I was so touched by reading about the life of your Mom. She sounds like an amazing woman who has impacted alot of folks in such a good and positive way. I know you miss her and I am sorry for your loss. I love the t-shirt idea in her memory and I bet she would too. Thanks for sharing her personal story and the pictures with all of us,the Avett Brother fans.
To this day I still have a hard time thinking of Mrs. Honeycutt as anything but Mrs. Honeycutt, regardless of how many times she told me to call her Vickie! My most vivid memory of the teaching side of Mrs. Honeycutt is when I turned in my first paper in her 10th grade English class and apparently I got a little too comma happy!! In true Mrs. Honeycutt fashion, she somehow managed to tell me I was completely wrong but in a way that actually made me like her more. Those are the teachers that truly made a difference in my life and Mrs. Honeycutt is the example I think back to most.
However, to me the teaching side was only one facet of her life I was fortunate to experience. I was also extremely fortunate to get to know her and her family on a personal level. Her son and I became great friends and it’s obvious to know why he is listed in my phone as “Super Dane Honeycutt”. Her family truly was a reflection of her and it’s my honor to help remember her legacy with this Foundation.
Thanks to all of those in our initial setup of the Vickie S. Honeycutt Foundation and I look forward to trying to do my part in mirroring the generosity that Mrs. Honeycutt spent her life spreading. Please do not hesitate to contact me for questions or if you know a teacher or educator that we can try to help.
First of all, we are overwhelmed by the response the foundation received so far. The t-shirts have been selling like crazy and we have had tons of people contacting us, willing to help. Thanks for everything you’ve done so far. We’re are just days away from getting the PayPal donation process underway, so be on the lookout for that!
In late October, Vickie was honored by the the Concord-Cabarrus Business and Professional Women’s Club. She was named “Woman of the Year,” and was the first ever to be honored posthumously. You can read more about the ceremony and other women that were honored here (http://www2 NULL.independenttribune NULL.com/news/2010/oct/22/professional-womens-club-honors-two-cabarrus-ar-473594/).
There was also a great article, written by Ben McNeely, that appeared in Concord’s Independent Tribune. The article talks about Vickie, the Foundation and how the Avett Brothers have helped give the foundation a nice kick-start.

Thank you all, again, for your support.
For the month of October, The Avett Brothers (http://www NULL.theavettbrothers NULL.com/us/events) have been kind enough to create a new t-shirt, especially for the Vickie S. Honeycutt Foundation. All proceeds will go towards the charity and the shirts can be purchased at any Avett Brothers show during the entire month of October. Here are a list of tour dates – if they’re coming to a city near you, make sure to stop by the merchandise table for a good cause!
