THE ART OF GIVING

THE ART OF GIVING: Thanks for stopping by and getting involved in this great opportunity. In starting off the new year, Christine and I decided to put together a challenge blog that would not only provide you with inspiration and free goodies, but to also let you know about the many ways we can "PAY IT FORWARD" to others in our lives...in simple and GIGANTIC ways. We hope that in combining both inspiration and giving to others, we can all make this world a better place, one layout, card, and gesture at a time. Thank you for taking this journey with us.

Project Cuddle & Creative Options  

Sunday, March 8, 2009

Thank you for joining us in another great Pay It Forward opportunity and giveaway. This month’s focus is on a non-profit organization founded by Debbe Magnusen and known as Project Cuddle®. The organization’s goal is to help prevent infants from being abandoned. Project Cuddle® offers a crisis line where frightened girls or women can find safe, legal options so that they never have to leave a baby at a dumpster, a church or dirty back alley. It is a reality too often seen in this world. Since its inception, Project Cuddle® has saved over 600 babies across the country and into Canada from the fate of being abandoned, or worse. What can you do to help? We are asking for your donations of new baby bottles or pacifiers to donate to this agency. Every little bit will help. If you are interested in joining this opportunity, please email us so we can send you an address on where to ship these very important necessities. Once we collect all the bottles, we will take a picture and deliver them to the agency.

If you are looking for a paper craft challenge create a layout that is baby focused. You can upload it to our Mr. Linky :) Everyone who creates a layout will also be entered in our raffle for a Creative Options paper kit.
So to sum it all up there are 2 challenges:
Challenge 1- Send us new baby bottles or pacifiers for project cuddle
Challenge 2- Make a baby layout or baby related layout and upload it at the bottom of this post!
It is that easy :)

So,why not try for both? If you participate in 1 challenge you get one entry. If you participate in both challenges you will get two entries! The winners will receive both a creative options tote and paper kit!
We are happy to be to have this month’s challenge sponsored by Creative Options, who bring you creative and stylish storage/organization systems for your crafting needs. They are also concurrently running a Sweepstakes with the kits we are giving away, where you can win a gift basket of goodies. Check out their site here and let them know we sent you! All we ask is that you Be Creative and send us some inspiration. Once you have created something, place your name and link in Mr. Linky’s section so we can all ooh and ahh over it. Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you strut your stuff.

Thank you to Creative Options for sponsoring us this month! Here is a little bit of inspiration for all of you. The Creative Options kit is versatile and a lot of fun! Check out what our team did with this great kit!

    This organization's mission spoke straight to my heart. As an adoptive mom I can tell you that there are definatly options for these children. No baby should be a throw away!!!!!
