Operation Safe and Sound

Today I am here with a very special post. My dear crafty friend Christy's home was broken into and many of their possessions were destroyed or taken. Some things held such sentimental value that nothing will replace it. I cannot begin to imagine what she is going through, but I know that these jerks violated her home, the place where she and her family should feel safe. It is where they raise their children and sleep soundly at night. Sadly, in addition to physical belongings being lost, they have also been robbed of any sense of security. I can only hope that over time they can begin to heal.

Christy has been updating her Facebook page, and I know that dealing with the police and insurance company has only been an additional stressor.

BUT What makes the crafting community so awesome is that we are always there for each other, no matter how far! Some of Christy's friends have come together to help. Many of the girls are making cards, I was unable to. (We just got back from a 2 week vacation today) But ultimately, the expense of trying to get her family back on their feet is going to be a strain. She needs to replace many household items, necessities for living, in addition to rebuilding a sense of security we many times take for granted.

So we are asking for your help. We've tried to make it convenient for you to help Christy and her family.  There is a Pay Pal Button on each of our blogs. We are asking that if you are willing and able, donate whatever you can to help Christy and her family rebuild their lives. NOTHING is too small. Our goal is to raise at least $1000 to help cover the costs of food, lodging and replacing at least some of the items taken.

If you're interested in seeing all of the cards, a full list of girls who are participating in the drive is available at Lawnscaping Challenge blog and A Blog Named Hero
