Cards for charity

One of my Blogger friends, Monique raises money for breast cancer research. Monique will participate in the A Sister's Hope 60K, a 2-day walk held in the weekend of October 6 - 7, 2007. Each participant committed herself/himself to raise at least 1,500 euro. There are a few charity foundations that get money from us each year and one of them is KWF Kankerbestrijding. I donate money each year as my dad was diagnozed with cancer in 1999, and again in 2003. I think it is important to raise lots of money for research. I really like Monique's initiative and therefore support her 2-day walk financially. If you would also like to donate money go and check the post about A Sister's Hope 60K on her blog. To raise more money Monique posted a message on the Dolls & Decorations message board yesterday and asked about ideas or things she could sell at the fair in her town. A few girls suggested to make cards that Monique can sell. Monique was very enthusiastic about the idea. The fair is on Friday September 7th already, so there is very limited time to create some cards. I didn't have any hand-made cards in stock anymore, so I created some new cards today. I managed to make 6 cards. The designs are not very spectacular, but hopefully nice enough for Monique's card sale. :D

nou eenvoudig noem je dit?? ik vind ze allemaal super en helemaal top dat je dit doet!! en ik ga zeker geld doneren want ik heb het borstkankergen en heb dus 60-80% kans om het te krijgen, dus voor mij is dit ook erg belangrijk!
helaas heb ik zelf zo geen kaarten op voorrraad en krijg ik ze ook niet meer af voor vrijdag.
