Meet Carmen. Carmen is a bright, thoughtful, sweet 8 year old girl who loves baking, cupcakes and her family. Carmen was also recently diagnosed with Extraosseous Ewing's Sarcoma...a rare form of cancer.
I first met Carmen's mother, Jaci (like Jackie), when we were both in high school and participating in a community program for high school girls together. I've since moved away but I've remained connected with her family via Facebook and through my mom who is also friends with her family. So of course hearing that such a great kid has this huge cancer fighting journey ahead of her hit my heart.
Why am I telling you all this? Because this sweet 8 year old girl has just one wish this Valentine's Day:
A Whole Lot of Valentines Cards
And if doing something as simple as sending a card to this great little girl will help her battle against cancer, I can definitely find some time and a stamp to make that happen!
I'm telling you guys because most of my readers are either 1) Crafters and/or 2) Moms. And I know that crafters, moms (and especially crafty moms) are the kinds of generous people who might want to help make a little girl's day by dropping a card in the mail.
So are you in?
You can send your cards to Carmen at:
PO Box 156
Suquamish, WA 98392
What kinds of cards would be good?
Store bought cards
Hand crafted cards
Kid crafted cards
Cards with cupcakes
Cards with Johnny Depp
Any Kind of Card!
