Paws 4Thor

I mentioned in a previous post about my friend Erin and her remarkable little boy Thor from Paws 4 Thor.

Erin is currently in the lead for winning $50,000 from giveback.org to give to charities of her choice. She plans on giving the money directly to Paws 4 Ability to get Thor his service dog, and help other families get a service dog too.

This was taken directly from her blog: It doesn't cost anything to help, and it is a simple 2 click process and you can opt out of any emails from giveback.org
Please consider helping her. Thank you so much.

Dear Friends,

I'm sitting here writing this...begging you to help me. This time I'm not asking for money. I'm asking for 2 clicks of your time. You see, I have a real chance at winning $50,000 for the charity of my choice and I REALLY need your help...

PLEASE Click [this link], then click "Connect with Facebook" - that's it! If you don't have a Facebook account you can manually enter your email to sign up on the Give Back website.


I get 50 points for every person who does this, and if I have the most on July 17th I win $50,000 for charity! Enough to top up Thor's file and reach his goal for his service dog AND to help several other families in need of a service dog!

As of this morning,I am in 1st PLACE and still have until July 17th to win this ---
PLEASE HELP ME... it costs nothing...just 2 clicks of your time could mean changing the life of my son and others like him who are in need of a Service Dog.

*note: I don't receive the money directly, I am simply competing to be allowed to say which charity receives the funds...and in my case I will be choosing 4 Paws for Ability, Inc - the non-profit agency we're currently fundraising for to get Thor's Autism Service Dog.

With your help, I can do this.

And if you're willing to lend a bit more help, here's my referral link you can share on your blog, twitter, facebook, email, etc. (just copy and paste)

If you have a blog, you can also post this button which will link directly to this post...



Thanks for all your help!

Lovely Dogwood for a Southern Gal living up North!

I have a friend Dana, she is a fellow artisan. She is the heart and soul behind Colors of the Woods Jewelry. She makes lovely jewelry as well as beautifully handcrafted ceramics. I asked her if she would make me one of her lovely business card holders, and in exchange I would needle felt her a bookmark. So, she asked for something that would remind her of the South, where we both grew up respectively, but only met virtually after we had long left Alabama. So, I decided on the Dogwood Tree which I thought was the state tree, but I am mistaken. Anyhow, the Dogwood Tree is a beautiful tree, and has fragrant white or pink flowers. It is a lovely sweet reminder of my years growing up in Alabama.

Thank you all to those that have participated in Handmade Love Thursday.

I have decided to stop hosting Handmade Love Thursday for the time being. There has been a decline in interest, and I simply do not have the time I would like to dedicate to blog hops at this time. I would like to thank all of you that have participated in the hop, and I will be sure to let everyone know again when I have time to dedicate to it properly. When I decided to do the hop, it seemed I had the time, but that has changed. I guess being busy is a good thing. :)
