Hi Ladies,

A good friend and an amazing local karoke singer just lost her home and all of its contents in a horriffic house fire earlier this week. (Investigations are leaning towards arson due to some area teenager's starting the fire due to mischief and pranks.)

Sarah Alta is a new mom of a 6 month old little boy. She also has a couple beloved "fur babies". Needless to say, she is utterly devistated. I thought it would be nice to send her a card shower of encouragment, prayers, etc.

Given that her & the baby are staying in temporary housing right now, you are welcome to send the cards to my P.O. Box and I will hand deliver them to her.

OR you can give them to me at the event in Syracuse on May 18th!

Here is the address:

P.O. Box 244
Etna, NY 13062

In addition, local friends are trying to put together a benefit to help raise money to help Sarah out for things she needs for the baby, herself, her fur babies, and rebuilding a new home for the family. Given that I live on a limited budget, I prayed to God to help me find a way to help.

Then the idea came to me to make & donate cards for a fundraiser item! I would love to be able to donate a large basket of assorted handmade greeting cards to be raffled off to help raise money. But, I am only 1 person and can only make so many. So, I am humbly turning to my crafty friends & asking that if anyone here on SCS has any "extra cards" they would like to donate for this cause, I would be most appreciative. I'm thinking the more cards in the basket, the more money raised for Sarah and her family.

For the donated "extra cards" to help with the fundraiser, you can send them to me at my P.O. Box address:
