Small Hands Creating Hope Project

Small Hands Creating Hope

I want to introduce to you a wonderful project in which I have the privilege of being involved.  The Small Hands Creating Hope project is the idea of MaryAnne at Mama Smiles.  She is a thirty year cancer survivor and has gathered a talented group of kid-centered bloggers to raise money for the American Cancer Society.  Each of us has created a craft with our children or students that could be made by or for someone facing cancer.  The projects are amazing, beautiful, and inspirational.  Several include tutorials so that you can recreate the crafts yourself.

Our projects have been compiled into an ebook, which will be sent out to anyone who donates at least $15 to the American Cancer Society.  An email with the download link, as well as a second link that allows you to purchase a hard copy of the book at production cost will be sent once your donation is received.   This button will take you directly to the American Cancer Society’s donation page:

Donate to the American Cancer Society

If you donate but do not receive this email for any reason, or if you have trouble with the download, email smallhandsproject at gmail dot com.

We are hoping to raise $3,000 by July 4th.   A blog hop will run from May 14th until July 4th to celebrate and raise funds for the American Cancer Society so that many more people can celebrate thirty years of cancer survivorship.  Learn about each of the bloggers who participated in the book by visiting the blogs below on the following dates.  There are even a few giveaways planned!
