Heart Cards Wanted for American Cancer Society Fundraiser!

Hi Everyone~

Hi! I need 500 cards by December 2nd!!! I am reaching out to fellow card makers to help me with a fundraising project for the American Cancer Society.

My mother is the Chair for the American Cancer Society's Re-lay this April! She is in charge of the Orlando relay (East Orange County.) It
is one of their largest fundraisers. It is a beautiful event actually. It lasts 24 hours. This event is to help people with any type of cancer...and they also promote awareness.

The first lap they have the Survivors...which includes both of my parents...walk. The second lap the caretakers and family walk. Then, they
have everyone walk a lap. The lap is a mile. There must be someone walking at all times! This is being held on a high school's track...which has
this special component in it. The track absorbs the impact of each step.

My mother has met with the different clubs of this high school and the kids are participating by sleeping over...and walking when there is a
spot without someone walking...perhaps at 2:18 in the morning!

My mother was assigned an area of 2 miles where she can go to businesses and ask for donations. Sadly, her area has about 5 businesses only. A
Dollar Store, a pawn shop and I don't know the others. She needs to raise money for tents...12 -I believe, tables, food, water, Gatorade, table
cloths and more. Everything that they need for that day...they need to raise money to buy the items. The American Society does not provide them.

I offered one fundraising idea of making baskets with cards, note cards, envelopes, pen, stamps...and sell them. She would rather...and I have
accepted...that I sell sets of stamped cards. I am putting 10 cards in a set, with envelopes, and tying them together with ribbon. I have 2
opportunities to sell the cards...One is the end of the 2nd week in December! The other is at the event in April. I need to have 50 sets of cards by the 2nd of December. I need another 100 sets by mid-March. I sat down and started making cards...there is no way I can make those cards on my own! ! Duh!!

I need help! So, I am asking friends, and some of the stamp blogs that I love...to please donate as many cards as they can. Every cent will go to the American Cancer Society. The sets can be made of the same card, or an assortment. If you were to send individual cards, I may put them with other similar cards from someone else.

I am asking you, if there is anyway your you and your friends could be asked to help out...if they would like to help! I thank you for
even considering helping out. Stopping cancer is close to my heart. Please let me know what you think. And, just to be clear...this has nothing to do with my blog-- He IS Able!

Thank you, I would be happy for even one card...although a set of 10 is even better! More would be a miracle! If you could please put them in plastic envelopes to avoid people getting oils from their hands on the cards. When you send cards, please be sure they are in a plastic bag. We get lots of rain in FL. If you have any questions, please pm me. Thanks for considering this very worthwhile charity!

He IS Able,
Traci Starkweather

I hope you have read the thread to see why I need help getting 500 cards together by December 2nd, and another 1,000 by the second week in March.

Please help by sending an above mentioned set, or a few individual cards. Every card helps!
