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 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.

Hello all and Happy 4th of July!  As you celebrate your Independence day with your families with BBQ's, fireworks, block parties or perhaps just a simple and quiet day off please take time to quietly reflect and remember the men and women who have dedicated their lives to serve our country and given us this freedom.

Today I have listed a few simple ways that we can help out the men and women of our armed forces.  The video above is about a program started by two young kids called "Cell phones for soldiers".  You can click on this link and learn more about it HERE.  More or less donating your old cell phone will  provide soldiers with free calling card minutes to call home and to speak to their friends and families. What a simple and kind thing to do. I know most of us have old cell phones lying around. :0)

Another  kind and easy thing to do today is to go and vist the USO support site and leave a message to our soldiers to wish them a Happy 4th and to thank them for their continued service and dedication.  GO HERE :0)

Now of course this post would not be complete without a prize being involved right?... so...leave me a post with a link to your blogs and/or facebook pages with the links to cell phones for soldiers and the USO  4th of July message board/wall that I gave you today and you will be entered in a random drawing for this prize sponsred by: The Robin's Nest and Tammy I.  This will challenge will run from today unitl Sunday, July 11th.  A winner will be announced on Monday July 12th.
Good luck and remember to keep on
Scrapping it Forward!
