Hi sweet blog folks!
I hope you are having a blessed day today! I’ve got some exciting news with a way that you can give back AND have a chance to win a GREAT prize! As you all know if you read my blog from time to time, I am going to be participating in the MS Walk on April 9th in Nashville in honor of my Mom who has multiple sclerosis. My goal is to raise $500 before the walk and so far I have raised $200. I’d of course love to raise even more than that and that’s where you come in! I know that in these hard economic times that donating can be hard and I honestly understand that and it’s okay. That makes every donation that I have received and that I will receive even more special and appreciated. So to say thank you for donating – I have rounded up some awesome prizes from some awesome people and although I know that 99.99% of people who donate don’t do it to get anything in return, I wanted there to be some goodies up for grabs if you did open up your heart and your wallet to help me reach my goal for my Mom.
I have about a month until the walk and so this fundraiser will run until then. For EVERY dollar that you donate – your name goes into the hat to win one of these AWESOME prizes.
1. A custom blog design for your blog by:

4. The Hero Arts Technique Garden DVD and the Hero Arts Hero Hue’s DVD that were done (and donated), but one of my sweetest friends, Jennifer McGuire. Jennifer is awesome. :)

5. Three 240 yard spools of THE best twine there is from The Twinery in Pink Sorbet, Lemondrop and Mandarin.
7. A $25 gift certificate to The Cookie Jar.

If you have an item that you sell or make that you’d like to donate to this fundraiser for my Mom, email me. I’d love to add it to the list of prizes.
And lastly, another aspect of this fundraiser is something that I am calling
In honor of this fundraiser – Persnickety Prints has generously given all one happy mama blog readers a coupon code for 15% off all print orders! Use the code printsforapurpose when you checkout! The code is good until April 2012 so now you don’t have any reason not to donate for a good cause, get a cute print every month and then upload them to Persnickety Prints and orders lots of copies to keep, give as gifts, frame, etc! :-D
So along with some awesome prizes above that you can have a chance to win – with just a $5 donation you can also pick a print from the above and ALL of the money raised goes to a great cause!
I will have a new print or two every month – sometimes throughout the month and I will let you know what charity will benefit from the prints next. If you have a great charity – email me and let me know! I am hoping that this will be a big success and that we will all raise a lot of money together for some great causes.
If you’ve read this far – THANK YOU! I know this is a super long post, but I wanted to get it all out there today since March starts tomorrow and I only have a little over a month to fundraise.
