Candy for a Cause.........

I have a strong desire to do something for someone else............ and give each person that helps me a chance to win some goodies! Honestly, don't you always feel bettter after you have done something that you know will make someone else smile? I know I do! So here is what I want to do- we have a local Ronald McDonald's House that is affiliated with the University of Michigan. I feel blessed that I have healthy children as I honestly do not know how those parents can do it. RMH is home to many sick children and their parents while their little ones are inpatient or getting treatment of all sorts. I want to collect cards for them to send out, I am looking for general cards such as Thinking of You, You make me smile, Thank you, I am there for you, Friendship ......... anything you think that they would use.
My goal is 100 cards- so please help me reach that goal- and all you ladies over seas/Canada - you have lots of time to mail those cards to me- I will leave this open until December 1st. I will then draw a winner on Thursday December 4th.

What you will win: SU Everyday Celebrations, SU Fancy Fibers "Annie", SU Eggplant hemp twine, and SU metal edge tags.

So- here are the details:

1. Send me a card/envelope that I can give to RMH families and I will give you an entry for EACH card you send me. Email me at steinrn@yahoo.com for my address when you are ready to mail them.

2. Post a link on your blog spreading the news of this Candy for a Cause and I will enter you in the contest- please leave a comment here that you have done this.

Thank you so much for participating in this Candy for a Cause!

What a wonderful cause...even without blog candy. I will be more than happy to make a couple of cards for you and the RMH. I am off to post on my blog at www.cheribella.wordpress.com right now.

Hi Heidi, I have posted about the card donation on my blog. I also sent you an email yesterday. If you happened to look at my post, the card looks nicer in person.

Vickie said...

Opps, I spelled the email wrong. Sorry. I am redoing right now.

Paula said...

What a great post! I am working on posting a link on my blog about this. Maybe I will feel well enough to make some cards to send also. I have a blog award for you at my blog so check it out.
