I'm reposting my Blog Candy for a Great Cause in hopes of a few more participants and because the candy just got sweeter (the entire package is now worth $140)!!!!! I was contacted by one of my fellow Shimmerz and Madelynn''s Twinkling Tuesdays design team members Jami Bova. Jami is a super talented stamper as well as a fabulous stamp designer. Check out her blog HERE. Jami has generously donated 4 stamp sets that she designed to add to my Cystic Fibrosis Blog Candy for a Great Cause. You can find Jami's stamp sets at 2 Red Bananas. The stamp sets that will be added to the blog candy package are :
- Value of Joy
- Gunther's Greetings
- Wrapped in His Love
- Caring Critters
These are some SERIOUSLY CUTE stamp sets. Wish I could throw my name in the blog candy pot, lol! Here are the stamp sets:
Here is a recap of the original blog candy post:
This month my blog candy is going to be a little different...This month I have a challenge for all of you. My good friend Chava (who I've known for 30 years - yikes, does that make me feel old!) has a 18 month old son Alex. Shortly after Alex was born he was diagnosed with having Cystic Fibrosis. For those of you unfamiliar with CF here is a brief description:
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.
I'd love to help Chava reach her fundraising goal. I have already donated to her walk but would like to try and help out a little more. 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 CF donation site HERE to place a secure donation (don't worry if your name doesn't show up on her donation list instantly, I've noticed that in some cases it takes several hours). After you donate, leave a comment on this post. If you prefer to donate by check instead of credit card you can mail a check made out to "Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (CFF)" to Chava. Her address is: Chava Pocernich 514 NW Cindy Ln Ankeny, IA 50023. You DO NOT need to tell me how much you donated. I just appreciate any help you can give! I'm keeping this blog candy open a little longer than normal in hopes of helping her raise as much money as possible...I will pick a blog candy winner on Friday April 17th. Please help spread the word!! I'd love for any of you to mention my post on your blogs, the more exposure the better.
Now for the blog candy...This blog candy package is valued at over $80. The package includes:
Gina K Heartfelt Hits 1 stamp set,

If you donate (any amount), your name will be put into the drawing for the entire blog candy package. When you donate please come back and leave a comment on my original blog candy post HERE (you can also post it on this post, I will check both before doing the drawing). If you have any problems with the link to Chava's site please let me know. It has worked for me but Jami had a problem with it. You can also go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation's site and click on their Great Strides Walk info link. You can do a search for walker: Chava Pocernich and that should take you to her page also. You do not have to tell me how much you donated. Just let me know that you did.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a fabulous day
