I Feel the Love Project- October 2011

I am honored to announce today that for the month of October, Ethan Pinter will be the recipient of our handcrafted BIRTHDAY cards.   

Ethan was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia at the age of 2 months old. Thanks to a liver transplant and the wonderful care he received from his doctors, Ethan will be celebrating his 2nd birthday in November.  We will be joining the celebration by making handmade birthday cards for this precious little boy:)  

When Ethan was 10 months old, he and his mother lived at the Ronald McDonald house while they waited for a liver transplant for Ethan.  He received his gift of life on Feb 18, 2011.  Ethan is doing quite well but he will be in the danger zone till the age of 5. He has been in and out of the hospital since the age of two months. His mother had to live at the Ronald McDonald House for 9 months. She said that it was the hardest 9 months of her life.  She was separated from her daughter, Haley, who is now 8 years old and her now husband, Chris, for this period of time. Ethan's mom believes that it is important to "live each day to the fullest and do not take life for granted."

Here is how you can help.  Each crafter can submit a card(s) by October 31st to:

Project #5

It would be fun to share our cards with one another, so please feel free to link a photo of your card to my blog before you put it in the mail.

This month you may submit a birthday card to a little boy who is turning 2.  

Thank you in advance to all my online crafting friends.  Let's make this a huge success for those who need to "Feel the Love!"
