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.
You can mail them to:

Thank you so much!
I just stumbled across your blog, and have added a link to your post on my most recent stamp! I hope you recieve lots and LOTS of cards for this young girl. Haeli and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
Count me in! I'll send a card as well as some goodies. I just went to a benefit last night for kids with cancer. I'll keep Haeli in my thoughts and prayers for sure.
Just read this and the heart strings have well and truly been tugged. I've posted a message and a link back on my blog. Here's hoping that Haeli receives lots of cards. Keeping her in my prayers, x
