Wanna Help??



My good friend Jill is starting to make gift baskets through her company, Heavenly Blessed, and she also sells some of the basket fillers by themselves, too. One of the great products that she carries (EVERYTHING she sells is top-quality!) is BabyLegs. Now, I know, I know... BABYLEGS??? That just sounds gruesome, doesn't it? ;) Let me explain. BabyLegs are basically legwarmers for children! They are traditionally worn on the legs kind of like tights. They have two open ends, making it easy to change diapers and slip on and off. These are great for baby girl and boy legs. My son, however, likes to wear his BabyLegs on his arms, prolonging the use of his t-shirts. And he LOVES them. Requests them! We own several pairs of BabyLegs, and we use them nearly every day now.

Okay, so my title implies a way for us to HELP. This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and there is a new pair of Pink Ribbon BabyLegs. For every pair of Pink Ribbon BabyLegs purchased, the BabyLegs company will donate 10% of the proceeds to cancer research. But get this...Jill will also donate ANOTHER 10% on top of that!! And look how cute they are...

If you know Jill, like I do, you know that she has a tender heart and giving spirit. And she just loves children! So, naturally, she is taking this a step further. Jill would love to donate pairs of BabyLegs to a local children's hospital to be given to children who are cancer patients. Jill points out that BabyLegs are convenient for children in the hospital to wear, as they are often hooked up to IV's and having medical procedures. Clever. She has comprised a list of BabyLegs styles to from which to choose, and for every TWO pairs that you purchase to donate, Jill and Heavenly Blessed will donate ONE MORE pair! As if this wasn't good enough, the BabyLegs company has heard about what Jill is doing, and if 100 pairs are donated, they will MATCH those 100 pairs!! :) Be sure to donate and pick up a pair or two for your little ones as well!

On top of this, I was thinking that it would be wonderful if we, as papercrafters, could create cards to include with the donated BabyLegs. Don't you think??? Not only would each child receive a new pair of BabyLegs, but they would also receive a super gorgeous, handstamped, made with love CARD to go along with it! Please do not sign cards on the inside, as Jill has plans for a special message for each card, but feel free to put your "Stamped by ....." sentiment on the back of the card! :) All cards will be mailed to me, and I'll get them to Jill. See below for details.

Okay...Thanks for reading all of this! Here are all of the details for purchasing and following through!

I don't really have money to buy babylegs right now esp since we have like 10 pairs we don't use any more. I'm gonna have to try them on his arms like you did! Wait, back to the point, I'd like to make some cards. I'll email you for your address.
