Bone marrow donation technology has come a long way, and is now as simple as giving blood. So we are trying to raise awareness and get people to register at http://marrow.org/ to be a bone marrow donor. And why are we doing this your might ask? To help a friend a fellow crafter, Liz Decade. Liz is battling 2 different forms of acute Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that this hop will help her to find a match. You can see her story at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va6RNwYj4BE&list=UUz-JkPSKRldHJNbbEotv8DQ&feature=plcp.
Even if you are not a match for Liz, you can still help her. You see bone marrow registrations drives are expensive, you have to pay for each person who is registered, and Liz is trying to raise money for bone marrow drives and medical expenses (it costs a lot of money to get a transplant). You can donate to Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org. All of the money donated will go to bone marrow drives or medical expenses.
And we have some wonderful sponsors who have donated prizes for our hop.
Sweet Stamping Treats Digital Stamps, Trendy Twine, MB Treasurista, Paper Piecings by Nikki, Inspired Stamps, My Pink Stamper, Peachy Keen Stamps and Market Street Stamps have all donated prizes to this hop. In order to be eligible for one of these prizes you must comment on every blog in this hop! There are other requirements for the sponsors so please see Liz's blog post for more details.
If you are coming from Melissa over at Time Weavers blog you are on the right track. If you want to start from the beginning please go to Liz's blog Decade of Scrap.
Now on to my project:
This hop theme is Thinking of you or Friends; I decided to go with the Friend theme by altering a $1 frame from Michael's and what better way of celebrating friendship than to dedicate this project to my sister Leydi... My Best Friend.... she is everything to me... she looks after me and spoils me rotten... I sometimes call her mini me but I think it's the other way around... she's so feminine, so conceited in a good way... to put it in her words... "Lady like" lol... I so want to be like her... anyways here is the frame....
Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to go to marrow.org and find out how to become a marrow donor... I already did!!!
