Shells For Change
I know I said I wasn't going to post, but this is a special post, and is something dear to my heart.
The above is a special card that I've designed. The sales of these cards will go toward helping the victims of the tornados that ripped through Alabama in April. My friend Rachel's community was devastated by the storms, and I am working in conjunction with her to get needed funds and goods to the people in her neighborhood. So many of them lost absolutely everything! Half of the proceeds for each dozen of these cards sold will go toward helping Rachel's community. Purchase the cards here.
I have gotten to know Rachel, a fellow blogger, since I stumbled upon one of her posts right after the tornados struck her neighborhood (read her story here). I was so touched by her spirit and her willingness to do whatever she could to help her community recover (read that story here). Many times her posts have left me in tears - both from the beauty of her words, and from the helplessness I felt. So, this is me doing my part to help.
Neither of us is affiliated with any organization. We are simply two people who see needs and who want to make a difference. Isn't that what it's really all about?
If you don't wish to purchase the cards, but would like to make a donation, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how. 100% of outright donations will go toward helping Rachel's community.
