Today I'm here a special post for my friend Christy. For those who may not know Christy is a part of the Lawnscaping Design Team. She was one of the first people to comment on my blog when I first started. She is sweet and encouraging and a good friend.
Unfortunately Christy and her family were victims of a home invasion recently. Many of their valuables were stolen and their home was trashed. Some of the things that were taken or destroyed were sentimental and irreplaceable. You can read her post about it HERE. One thing Christy said to me long ago was how she loved the community we are all a part of through crafting and blogging. We are there for each other despite the many miles that separate us. The people who broke into Christy's home not only stole her possessions but also her sense of security. They violated her home, the place where we are supposed to feel safe and secure. Dealing with police reports, investigations & the insurance company has been and continues to be exhausting and frustrating for Christy and her family.
Some of Christy's Friends have come together to try and help. We are of course making cards for her because that's what we do. But ultimately, we want to help her and her family get back on there feet. Imagine having to replace the necessities while also trying to rebuild the sense of security that we sometimes take for granted.
If you would like to help Christy and her family there is a PayPal button for donations. If it is your heart's desire to give please do, every little bit can help, nothing is too small. Our goal is to raise $1,000 to help cover the costs of food, lodging and replacing some of the items taken.
Christy I made this card to encourage you to continue to shine even when the world seems dark around you. Don't let the actions of others weigh you down, keep your head up and God will keep you and your family safe. Hugs to you sweet friend. :)
Thanks for stopping by today, and thank you for your help.
