A Free Digital Pocket Scrapbooking Mini Kit – A Way To Give Back

Happy Day!
Back in THIS POST, I announced something so exciting! I am joining Canadian Humanitarian on an expedition to Ethiopia.  
My goal is to volunteer on an expedition to their programs in Ethiopia in October of 2015. As a volunteer, I will be working in a variety of ways – helping by doing handy work on their centers, cleaning, organizing and distributing donations, washing the hair of the children, preparing meals, working side by side with locals in their community on a variety of projects, and doing whatever grunt work is needed in their centers. It’s going to be work, but life-changing, amazing work. I can’t wait!
I also plan to extensively photograph my experience and share those photos via social media, as well as donating most to the charity for use in their advertising/website etc. I am so pleased to be offering this service to this great organization.
You can read more about this amazing charity and the fantastic work they do on their website:

As a volunteer, I will have to fundraise the entire amount of the cost of this expedition. In order to give back to the amazing people out there who are willing to donate, I have created a set of Project Life cards that will be given at no extra charge to anyone who donates ANY amount.
FREE with a donation of any amount. 
 Soon I’ll be sharing examples of layouts made using this sweet kit!
To donate, click on “DONATE HERE” (below). You can decide on any amount – remember EVERY single little bit helps. Choose “PayPal” and either go ahead and donate through paypal, or if you do not have a PayPal account (or prefer to pay another way) choose “Pay As Guest” on the pop up screen and you will be directed on how choose your method of payment.

**Please include your email in the comment so I can send you your free printable card kit! (This is not a physical product – it comes in pdf format, ready for printing.)**
If you would like to get involved in other ways, there are many opportunities! You can read more about different ways to help on their site – things like sponsoring a child, donating items, attending a fundraising event, or even joining them on an expedition! The possibilities are almost endless.

Thank you, in advance, for all of the support and for spreading the word. I couldn’t make my goal without you! And I hope you enjoy the card kit for your Project Life needs!


Help Me Get To Ethiopia!

This is BIG news and I’m so excited to share it. But first a little back story. 
 About 6 months ago, my husband started working for an amazing charity called “Canadian Humanitarian”. Since then we have learned more and more about the incredible work they do, helping kids in Ethiopia, Uganda, and Malawi. They have helped hundreds of children get a good education, warm food in their bellies, clothing, and opportunities that will set them up for a successful life!
In February, my husband made the trip to visit their programs and to meet the kids that are benefitting from them. His stories were just awesome. I couldn’t wait to get involved, too.

So, I have decided that I want to go. I want to see, first hand, what they are doing for these kids and to lend a helping hand. My goal is to go on an expedition with them in October of 2015 and to photograph my experience.

As a volunteer, I need to fundraise my way there. It is a daunting task, so I’m getting an early start on my fundraising. I am looking to the generosity of others to help in any small way they can, to donate to my total. I need to raise $4000.00. It’s a lot, but I’ve got a year and a half to do it. 
If you, or anyone else you know, can help – please do! Any small amount will help! 
I am also working on a FREE Project Life digital kit that I will offer to anyone who reads, in exchange for a donation of any amount. I want to give back! 
SO, if you want to help, please visit my giving page

You can decide on an amount and pay via PayPal. Or, if you don’t have a paypal account, click on “Pay with Paypal” and then when the pop up screen appears, select “Pay as guest” and choose your method of payment. That’s it!
Thanks, in advance for your help and please spread the word. I am SO excited to go. If you want to find out more about Canadian Humanitarian, or their USA branch, “Kids Hope Ethiopia“, please visit their websites. Photobucket
