Blossoming Bouquet AND a Great Cause - CARDS FOR JACOB.....

Happy Wednesday!!  I've been making so many cards lately, lots of fun birthdays, wedding, all different occasions, and a lot of 'Just Because' cards too, those are always fun to share with people. This floral bouquet I made last night, a combination of every color I could think of:

But really, I wanted to share another story here today that has captured my attention.  I came across this story by clicking on an ABC7 news story on Twitter.  I know a lot of us crafters get heavily involved with causes for children and, especially if it combines card making as well - then it becomes even more special and heartwarming.

Jacob is a terminally ill boy who will be turning 15 years old this August 28.  He is suffering from Mitochondrial disease.  It results in his body failing to produce energy for the cells in his body to facilitate proper functioning.  This disease leaves him bed-bound with a host of daily, painful symptoms. He is asking for 100,000 cards for his birthday and that is all he wishes.

You may follow his public story on Facebook at Adventures with Mighty Jake or you may follow an account that his parents have set up on Twitter @mightyjake828 - Jacob Priestley.

You may send other things if you wish but really, if you send even one, sweet card, that would make his day!  There is a secure postal box that you can send cards to so please share anywhere and with anyone you can that you think would be interested:

Jacob Priestley
P.O. Box 855
Queen Creek, AZ 85142

I'm hoping Jacob reaches his goals of all the wonderful cards, I know he has received tons already! Sending big hugs and lots of love to him and his family! xoxoxo
