Nearly four years ago I met a very special lady
right here in blogland. I have yet to meet her in person
but maybe one day that will happen too.
Terri is a loving wife, mother and elementary school principal.
Who would have thought that a homeschool mom and
a public school principal could be friends?
Its easy...Terri rocks!
Anyway, Terri's daughter Ashley suffers from
Crohn's Disease and she has decided not to take
In April of this year Ashley began a fund raiser called
The Purple Dress Project.
You can read more about it at her blog....
Our family has also seen Crohn's
at its worst in Warren's cousin.
He was hospitalized just last month
once again with a terrible attack.
A young boy in our neighborhood has recently
We feel a connection to these three people
in one way or another and wish to support
them by raising money for research and treatments.
I will donate half of the price of certain limited edition
French Lavender Candles to Ashley's Purple Dress Project.
My friend and fellow Etsian, Elisabeth Arona Walsh has
donated her talents in creating the artwork featuring
Ashley's Purple Dress.
Story explained on her blog.....A Hasty Life
will go to my Etsy shop.
Still wondering how you can help?
I'll bet you thought I was going to ask you to
purchase a candle?
Well, if you want to that would be great,
but, even better would be to spread the word.
If you wouldn't mind grabbing your favorite photos
and either write a blog post, put it on your side bar,
let your facebook friends know or twitter it.
Whatever you can do to let others know
that they can help it would be great.
You can link them to
my Etsy Shop.....
The fund raiser candles are easy to spot.
You can make a difference in the lives of
Ashley, Logan and our cousin BJ
as well as the others like them.
If you are willing
I thank you.
As do Terri, Ashley and Elisabeth.
