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.

Operation Write Home Make Someone's Day Challenge


This is a short challenge...and it's got a specific goal! Shippers for Operation Write Home need to keep up with the anytime cards as well as the wonderful grad and Dad cards...so we need your help in rounding out those boxes! What's an anytime card? Thinking of you, hello, birthday, love, miss you, anniversary, etc...as well as blank. All those non-holiday types.

To be eligible for the prize drawing, you need to do the following:
1. Include at least half anytime cards. (It can be all anytime cards if you wish.)
2. Include at least two AnyHero cards.
3. On your packing slip, be sure to write that it's for the Make Someone's Day challenge!
4. Ship early enough that they arrive on or before Monday, May 10th. And with the slow mail we've had lately, you may want to give it a few extra days cushion!
If you'd like to go that extra mile (though this gets no extra entries since it's no requirement), include a donation for shipping. That keeps these boxes heading out overseas to our heroes!

Marcy will be offering prizes! I had trouble getting the pictures to post so if you will just click on the link to Operation Write Home you will be able to see the prizes.

I got my cards ready today, in the box and ready to go to the post office. Hope you will be able to join me in this worthy cause. Just remember --
NO GLITTER!
