St Baldricks Charity event

>> Friday, March 11, 2011

Have you heard of St. Baldricks? The St. Baldrick's Foundation is a volunteer-driven charity committed to funding the most promising research to find cures for childhood cancers and give survivors long and healthy lives.

Recently, I was contacted by papercrafting friend, Sarah Williams and she told me the story of her friend. Her friend has a boy named Oliver. Oliver has an inoperable brain tumor that is terminal. Oliver wears an eye patch so that he does not get double vision, but being the trooper and fun little guy that he is, he eye patch sports a guitar and the words, ROCK N ROLL! He's a kid after my own heart.

And indeed, his story has touched my heart. There are so many young ones fighting cancerous diseases, and St. Baldricks is truly making a difference!
I approached Diem, one of my llustrators for Paper Makeup Stamps, about making a fairy just for Oliver with all proceeds of the digi sales going to the St Baldricks and/or family for Oliver. She loved the idea and not only drew the perfect fairy for Oliver, but also an awareness ribbon and the word Rockstar!

This digi set is $4 and you can purchase it here.

And here are 2 cards I made using this digi set!
I colored the ribbon blue because light blue is the ribbon color for children's cancer awareness. :D
And i want to give one more shout out to Sarah. Because today, Sarah has commited to to shaving her head to raise money for this charity! You can check out Sarah's commitment page HERE! Sarah, I am so very proud of you!
