Sweet Card for a Sweet Girl


My Pink Design teammate Cristi forward this email to me, about a card collection for a little girl whose leukemia has recurred. Please join in if you can. It would mean a lot to this little girl and her family.


Hello ladies.
Hope you all are doing well. This email is to ask all of you for some help. Hopefully you can post this info on your blog or attach a link to my blog (techniquesbytrish.blogspot.com).
After working for my parents' business for 10 years, you get to know your customers pretty well, and over time they become more like friends. One of the customers had told me last year that he was thrilled that his niece, Madison, was in remission from leukemia! Their family was overjoyed that such a young girl had beat this vicious cancer (she's only 6 years old). However, just last week, their family was hit with the most horrific news........Madison's cancer has returned.
Now I personally do not know Madison, BUT I'm the type of person who wants to help whenever I can. I know that I can't cure her, but I can help with making her day a little better by sending her a card to put a smile on her face. So, this is where I'm hoping to get your help.....I'm hoping to get a TON of cards to cheer up Madison. "Get well" cards and anything that is super girly would be perfect!!! And if you'd like to send a small gift, ex: a barbie or stuffed animal, I'm sure it would cheer her up and keep her company while she spends the next several weeks in the hospital. I know she loves pink, butterflies, and anything girly.
If you're interested in helping, please send your cards/packages to the following address by Friday, October 29th (please have it in the mail on or before that date):

Thank you everyone in advance for spreading the word and helping this young girl get through such a hard time,
Trish
PS....if you'd like to send a card to Madison's parents with words of encouragement or your prayers, their names are Bobby & Maria.
