A Reminder....Special BLOG CANDY

I will wait until MARCH 30TH to do the draw
since some of you wonderful people are
sending cards in from very far away.

Spread a Smile Campaign
Blog Candy With a Purpose
Candy worth 250.00
In order to have a chance at winning the following BLOG CANDY,
I ask that you please do one of the following things.

1. Leave a comment in this section on my blog with your email address, so I can email you my home address. (I don't feel comfortable posting it on here.) Or, you can
email me and I will email you back with my address.
2. I would appreciate you posting my Blog Candy on your blog.
If you do, you will get an extra chance at winning. Just be sure that you let
me know that you posted this Candy on your blog.

3. Make a card (no bigger than 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" ) that will cheer a homeless person up, motivate them or give them hope. Your other option is to make a card that will make an elderly person feel good. (Even if one heart is touched by one card, then it is a worthy cause.) Please sign your cards and indicate where you are from.

4. Stamp something special inside your card.
People who send (snail mail) in a card will get an extra entry/chance to win.
The more cards you mail in..... the more entries you get.
So, if you leave a comment, post my Candy on your blog, and mail in a card...
that will give you 3 chances to win. Plus... If you send me more than one card then you can add an additional chance to win with every card you send me.

I will personally distribute these cards (maybe with my Grandaughter Jazzy) through out the Spring and Summer in the hopes to just put a smile onto some faces and hope in their hearts. It's a small thing to do. However, sometimes small things have a huge impact. Please participate and Share a Smile.

Wow what wonderful candy again Dorothy and what a wonderful idea. As I won your last candy, I would like to opt out of entering the candy, but I would still love to make and send a card for this wonderful thing you are going to do and of course I will put a link on my blog. You should already have my email.

This is a fantastical idea! I often visit my MIL and other elderly in this area and I know how lonesome they are and how much they appreciate a kindly gesture. They will treasure these cards so I hope you get lots of them!! You are on my blog roll where your special shows blog candy shows up under the title. I will have to wait to send you some cards as I am away for the next month, taking care of my mother after surgery. (But send me your address anyway - maybe I can convince mom to get some card-making goodies!)

You are a very special person to do this!!!

HI this is a great thing to do. At the holidays my daughter and son in law challenged all of us to do some type of good deed and then we told what we did on Christmas day. Some did stockings with the local church, food for a dinner for a family in need, .etc. It will hopefully become a tradition. Here is my email dfrueh@gmail.com I don't have a blog but I will email this to friends who stamp. Donna

CraftyRia said...
