Today, I am so honored to be part of a wonderful blog-hop for a dear friend: Ann Cox and her family. I met Ann many years ago while blogging - and was so happy to have met her at CHA and get a to talk with her briefly. She is a wonderful person, amazing teacher, mother, friend and wife.
Ann and her family are going through a difficult time right now - her husband Kevin had to have a triple by-pass surgery and along with that is having kidney trouble. He only has one kidney because he donated the other one to his father. This has put their family in state of medical crisis - both emotionally and financially. Kevin is the primary caretaker of their little baby, while Ann teaches and to help them get thru this time, their friend has created a GoFundMe page to help the family. Please check it out here: https://www.gofundme.com/g81dn0.
I would like to thank Ashley Newell for creating this bloghop - a chance to us to spread the word about the GoFundMe page for Ann - as well as offer some prizes for you when you stop by and comment on each person's link in the hop - check out some of these amazing sponsors:
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps $50 gift certificate
Lawn Fawn Stamps $50 gift certificate
SugarPea Designs $50 gift certificate
To enter to win the prizes, please complete the hop and leave comments on each stop. Bonus entries will be given to those who donate to the GoFundMe page. Winners will be drawn on Feb 11 and posted right here.
If you would like to show your support for the Cox Family by making a card and posting it to your blog, there will be a linkup at our last stop CAS-ual Fridays.
For my card for the hop, I wanted to send Ann some sunshine and a sentiment from one of my favorite Verve Stamps: Blue Skies -- this sentiment reads: Blue Skies Are Coming Your Way... I know that this is a rough time right now Ann - and that the skies might seem very gray ---- we are all sending you our love and prayers and miles and miles of Blue Skies filled with sunshine!!!
Your next stop on this hop is the wonderful Lisa Lara !!
Here is the full hop list:
