Card Drive For A Worthy Cause
I'd like to take a moment, today, to tell you all about a wonderful cause, and how you can help brighten a day in the lives of some special people.
The Ear Trust is a wonderful organization that supports the use of cochlear implants across Yorkshire and neighboring areas, to enable babies, children and adults with profound hearing loss to begin to hear. Visit their website here, for more information on the Ear Trust, read patient stories and make donations.
Little Carly is three years old, and is just one of the children The Ear Trust has helped. Carly's grandmother, Trisha, has a blog, and you can read about Carly, and how the Ear Trust has helped her, here, at the top of the page. Trisha also has two Ear Trust digi stamps for sale on her blog for $1.50 each. (Read below for info on the creator of these wonderful digi images!) All proceeds from the sale of these special digi images will go The Ear Trust.
As part of the Design Team for Stamping Dragon Designs, I have volunteered to organize a card drive. (See below for address where you can send your cards) I am asking all of you to send cards to these wonderful people that are being assisted by The Ear Trust.
The wonderful Janette, from Stamping Dragon Designs has generously created two adorable digi snail images, below, to help raise money for this awesome cause!
These images can be purchased from Trisha on her blog, here, or you may purchase them from Janette's store, at Stamping Dragon Designs. Again, all proceeds from the sale of these adorable stamps, purchased from either site, will go to The Ear Trust, to help enable people with profound hearing loss, to begin to hear.
We are asking all of you wonderful people out there to please help bright up a day in the lives of these special people, by sending cards.
We'd love it if you'd purchase the special stamps, to create your cards, since proceeds go to the charity. Those of you who purchase the Ear Trust Digi stamp and create a card with it, to send to the Ear Trust, will receive this special image, Jiggy's Presents, created by Stamping Dragon Designs, for free, as our way of saying thank you.
It is not a requirement to use the Ear Trust Digi on your cards, but we would love it, if you did! You may send cards for any occasion, using any images. Please help out by sending a card.
When sending your cards, please include a blank envelope for each card, and send all your cards in one package.
Please mail your cards to:
94, Canal Street
Barnsley, South Yorks,
A Huge thanks, in advance, to each and every one of you that take the time to send cards!! We really appreciate it!
