Cystic fibrosis is an inherited chronic disease that affects the lungs and digestive system of about 30,000 children and adults in the United States (70,000 worldwide). A defective gene and its protein product cause the body to produce unusually thick, sticky mucus that:
- clogs the lungs and leads to life-threatening lung infections; and
- obstructs the pancreas and stops natural enzymes from helping the body break down and absorb food.

Here is where my challenge comes in. Chava is doing the Great Strides walk in Des Moines, IA on 5/17/08. Her fundraising goal is $150. I'd love to help her reach this goal (I am happy to say I was the first person to place a donation on her site). To help her out I am offering a chance at some fun blog candy to anyone who donates. There is no minimum donation. You can donate $1 or more. All you need to do for a chance at the blog candy is go to Chava's donation site HERE and donate (don't worry if your name doesn't show up on the donation list instantly, I've noticed that in some cases it takes several hours). After you donate, leave a comment on this post. You do not have to tell me how much you donated. I just appreciate any help you can give! I will pick a blog candy winner on Friday May 9th. I'd love for any of you to mention my post on your blogs, the more exposure the better.
Now for the blog candy: It is a clear stamp extravaganza!! The stash includes "Winter Holidays" set from Autumn Leaves, a package of misc Studio G clear stamps, a package of birthday themed Studio G stamps, a cute flip-flops stamp from Imaginisce, a cute hula penguin from Imaginisce, a popsicle stamp from Imaginise, a package of Magic Mesh, a package of self adhesive pearls and a package of self adhesive rhinestones.
I hope you all have a wonderful day! Thanks for stopping by!
