Hi fellow crafters. I have a story to tell today....
Earlier this week my sister, who works for a school system, contacted me regarding one of the middle school students. This young lady, Haeli, is in 6th grade, just like my little girl. Haeli is dealing with a very serious disease, something that is even hard for an adult to deal with... cancer. She has a rare form of ovarian cancer. She is currently undergoing chemotherapy.
The first thing I thought of was all the friends I have made in blog land while crafting. I thought of all the beautiful cards and scrapbooks people make. And, I thought, this little girl would probably really like to receive cards and other craft items from all over the US as well as the world. I am sure this would inspire her own papercrafting. So that is where you all come in! I would love to send this young lady anything to bring a smile to her face. My sister tells me she is interested in art, and her teachers say she is quite talented, so I am putting a basket together of scrapbook/stamping items for her to use. Also, I am asking you, my followers/friends to send her a card. Of course if you want to send her a little something else, stickers, embellishements etc, I am sure she would love that as well. Maybe for a moment we can take her mind off her illness!
So fellow crafters, I humbly ask for your help here. Could you send a card to Haeli? Would you be willing to post a little something on your blog asking for cards for her? I am sure she would be thrilled to receive a lot cards, etc. from all over the world.
