Hope House Home for Boys

The cards that I sell here in Chapala and Ajijic, Mexico benefit the dental program for the boys at Hope House in the nearby village of Ixlahuacan. There are close to 30 boys at the home and many of them come to the home having received no dental treatment. If you live here at Lakeside and would like to order a quality, hand crafted card for a special occasion and help me contribute to this worthy cause, please e-mail me at bettyinchapala@yahoo.com Card price is 50 pesos; the entire sales price is donated to Hope House.

Taylored Expressions Dragonfly Card Drive

The following was written by Donna Baker on her blog "Serenity in Stamping".
Taylored Expressions is hosting a card drive to benefit the Neo-natal Unit at Sanford Medical Center in Sioux Falls SD. Taylor has both a very good friend and a sister-in-law who work as labor and delivery nurses at SMC where they use the dragonfly as a symbol of hope for families who have lost a child during delivery or in the early stages of life and they have requested hand-made cards featuring dragonfly images.
Your help is needed. Would you consider making and donating some cards that feature a dragonfly? You may use stamps from any company - they do not need to be from TE. As a thank you for participating Taylor will enter your name into a drawing for a $50 gift certificate to the TE Store. Here are the details:
Create cards (1 or as many as you'd like) that feature a dragonfly image (from ANY stamp company.) Sentiments can be things such as "thinking of you" and inspirational quotes or they can be blank.
If your cards are standard A2 size (4.25" x 5.5") Taylored Expressions will provide the envelopes. If your cards are any other size then we ask that you please send a blank envelope along with each card donation.
The more entries we receive, the more prizes there will be. Taylored Expressions will give away 1 $50 Gift Certificate for every 50 cards we receive. So - there will be one GC given if we receive 99 cards or less. For 100 - 149 we will give 2 gift certificates, for 150 - 199 there will be 3 gift certificates and so on.
You will be entered into the drawing once for EACH card you send in with no limit. The more entries, the better your chance to win.
Mail your donations to:
Taylored Expressions Card Drive
924 NW 33rd Street
Ankeny, IA 50023
Cards must be received no later than March 25th.

I think this is a wonderful cause and I have posted some of the cards I will be sending. Will you join me in being a blessing to someone who is hurting and needs the comfort that God and others are able to give?
