Calling all Designers or anyone

Well, hello everyone!! Haven't posted for several days, but today is my Birthday!! Whoo hoooo!! Ummmm, kind of just another day - just one year older!!! LOL Anywho, there is a friend of mine, Jeanette from Moo Two Designs that is doing a charity kit for a little girl named Chelsea who has Leukemia. Here are the details for any designers or anyone wanting to help out and get in on this wonderful kit. If you aren't a designer you can help by going to Moo Two Designs when this kit hits the store and purchase it to help Chelsea and her family out!!

This is written by Jeanette Bollinger:

You may or may not know that I am a contributing`author to a book about life as a mother of a child with Down Syndrome. It is a collection of stories from over 50 Moms, and it is a really amazing book!

Anyways, one of the little girls that is featured in the book is one and a half year old Chelsea! This sweet little girl has just been diagnosed with Acute Myelogenous Leukemia! For those who don't know, this requires many, many chemotherapy treatments and an extremely long stay in the hospital. Chelsea has been in treatment for about a month now, and is such a trooper!!

As you can well imagine, this experience is a very expensive one, both emotionally and financially for the family. Chelsea has an older brother that she can rarely see for fear of Chelsea catching a virus, because she has no immune system due to the chemo. Her mother Cary has been staying with Chelsea most of the time, occasionally getting some sleep at the local Ronald McDonald House.

What I would like to do is create a beautiful collaboration kit and send the proceeds directly to the family. My thought is that it could at least help with meals, transportation, what have you.
I have come up with a color scheme, and the title I would like to use for the kit is "Sweet Butterflies"!

I am so excited to have to opportunity to help this family. Us Moms that contributed to the book (which is called Gifts:Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives) are quite close,so this is hitting quite close to home, especially since children with Down Syndrome are prone to developing Leukemia. I know that if Carter were ever sick like this that I would appreciate any and all help, so lets help this family!!!Who's with me??

And here's the beautiful Chelsea!! Now who could resist helping this little girl out?

Check out the color scheme and more details here

The deadline for this kit is November 20th!! So, let's get busy helping this family out!!
