I am a guest for a very special fundraiser. Barbara's (with LittleMissMuffet stamps) daughters, Cassandra and Lydia, are participating in a "Jump Rope for Heart" activity at their school where kids learn jump rope skills and raise money for the American Heart Association.
Learning about a healthy heart at school really hit home for her girls, especially when it came with a connection to a few close family members. For example, their cousin Ryker had open heart surgery when he was only 6-months-old! He is now a teen and doing great! He loves many activities including photography and was the inspiration for a new image Barbara has drawn for today... meet Polka Dot Pals Ryker.
This image is available in the Little Miss Muffet Stamp store but the best part about him is you can also help Barbara's daughters in their fundraiser! How, you might ask? There are two ways! First, for every PDP Ryker purchase, LMMS will donate $2.00 to Cassandra and Lydia's fundraiser! Secondly, you can also donate directly on the American Heart Association website to their individual fundraiser page by visiting these links: Casssndar's Donation Page and Lydia's Donation Page.
But wait, there's more! That's not the only image you'll get in the package - there are two other very special images. Those two were drawn and colored by Cassandra and Lydia themselves! They've entered their artwork into the T-shirt Design Contest for next year's Jump Rope for Heart. Maybe they'll win, maybe they won't, but the fun was in creating and now you can create with them too! Both colored and uncolored versions are included.
Thank you for being a part of this fundraiser and we hope you can take action to have a healthy heart even if it isn't via jump rope. Spread the word and share your creations online in the current LMMS Challenge and/or in the FaceBook LMMS Group too!
Here is my creation using both the girls image combined with Barbs cutie. I love how it turned out and am proud to be apart of this fundraiser. Fundraisers like this touch so many peoples "hearts" and I hope you too can get some satisfaction out of being a part of it too!
