I Feel the Love Project August 2012


I FEEL THE LOVE PROJECT


Olivia, 9, and her mom EriKa 

Olivia's story, as told by family friend, Karen. 

Olivia is a 9-year-old with a sparkling heart, in need of extra love and encouragement.  My lifelong friend, her mother, lost her battle to cancer in 2011. Facing this new reality has been extremely hard for Olivia. As valiantly as our beloved Erika fought cancer, Olivia fights to put an end to this terrible disease. 

Soon after her passing, at only 8 years old Olivia founded Kids Involved in Cancer Research (KICR) with a fierce drive to raise awareness and money for colon and lung cancer research. The annual KICR walkathon took place this past weekend and what better way to show Olivia we support her than to send her a box full of love from IFTL Project. She is so brave, possessing the same inspiring strength I saw in Erika, and I would give anything to take away her pain. This ministry gives us the privilege of delivering sunshine to Olivia's heart. Our happy cards will bring a smile to her beautiful face as she fights her own battle of dealing with the loss of her mom. It will mean so much to her to see that there are people thinking of her, who took the time to make a fun little card especially for her. Every card will be a blessing, engulfing her with healing love and light.

  3. Hi! Madison, I am new to this I sent you cards from Canada last month and I want to do it again. Do you want these cards left blank or do we write something in them? Just wondering what to write if so and so you have any suggestions? Thanks for everything that you are doing. I love the love of God that you are showing in such a tangible way! Keep up blessings other and I know you will be blessed.

    1. Lynnette, thank you for the cards last month. I posted them in the photo gallery:) They were awesome!! For this month, you can write in the cards. You can say whatever you are inspired to say. It can be something like, thinking of you and praying you are having a wonderful day... Sending you love and encouragement from (Calif) or wherever you are from... you get the idea. Thank you so much.

    2. Thanks for your reply. i collect cards in Canada for send a smile 4 kids and they are always left blank for the doctors, nurses, kids or others to write in so this is why I was asking!
      Thank you for posting the pictures of the cards that i sent in. I saw them and i am so glad that you like them. I am pretty new to cardmaking but I absolutely love it, I also am a scrapbooker when I take the time to do it.
