Lungs 4 Life Fundraiser. . .

The LUNGS 4 LIFE fundraiser is now in FULL swing! Sassy Cheryl's along with some amazingly generous artists and incredibly GENEROUS contributors are taking this opportunity to help raise funds for Tripp Oldham, a 19 year old boy suffering from Cystic Fibrosis.  
Doesn't this photo just capture his spirit!  
Tripp will need a double lung transplant in the next 2 years and his family is in need of raising money in order for this to happen.
All donations from this fundraiser will go directly to the LUNGS 4 LIFE charity fund.
We hope too, that you will save the Loves Healing Hands/Lungs 4 Life logo, located in the right-hand column, and post on your blog or website to help spread the word.  

We are making some incredible images and prizes (just below digi package) available to you just for participating.

The Fundraiser will run through August 14th. with the winners being announced the following Sunday, August 21st.
First up. . .
we have put together a fantastic package of digi stamps for you to have for a simple donation of just $20.

1st Place Prize: Handmade Copic Marker Case
(Valued well over $100)
Donated by the ever so talented Shirley Swoope.  When I sent out the email about doing this fundraiser, she immediately contacted me and wanted to participate.  I can't tell you how much it meant to me.  Shirley is not only an amazing card designer, but an avid sewer.  Shirley has shown me these amazing Copic Marker Boxes before and I have to tell you, I've actually thought about purchasing some Copic Markers, just so I can get my grubby little hands on one of these.

  1. Hi there, I tried to make a donation through buying a raffle ticket, but it didn't bring up a shopping cart/checkout? Took me straight to Paypal but no transaction to pay for. Is it just me or does it need fixed? :)

  2. What a fantastic fundraiser. Thank you so much for allowing me to contribute to this great cause. A big thanks to all those who contributed images, prizes and their time.... and to those who purchase the images and raffle tickets in order to help Tripp. Cheryl, you're a blessing.

  3. Good luck to Tripp and may he stay healthy....I hope you are able to help out the family. :)
