Spread the Love Hop

Hello Stamping Friends,

Today I have a very special post! Erin and Denise have organized a Spread the Love blog hop to help bring love and hope to a young New Hampshire girl named Jaimie Cates, who sadly was the victim of random violence in her own home and as a result of this random act, also lost her mother. It was a terrible tragedy that has touched us deeply and so we wanted to do something to help Jaimie

Here is the story:
"On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."

Our hope is that everyone hopping around today will stop for a moment and think about Jaimie and her father and what life must be like for them now. One moment in time has changed their lives forever. We are asking that everyone reading this message please take a moment to make a card and send it off to Jaimie. You can make something very simple or much more involved, but please share some words of hope and love and let her know that people do care and want the best for her. Please send your card to the address below:

Jaimie Cates
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057


This is the card I am sending to Jaimie:

Today the blog hop starts at Katharina's blog and if you are just joining me, you'll want to hop back to Katharina's and start this special hop there. If you are joining me from Tracey from Starving Artistamps you are in the right place!
Your next stop is Jacilynn Cox . Our hop will end on our new blog, Stamp Something...for Jaimie where we have a special card drive challenge posted with opportunities for participants to win some really terrific prizes donated by our generous sponsors. So be sure you continue to hop to see all the love and hope being spread for Jaimie and then we hope you will make a card and enter it into our challenge!

I hope you can help us to spread the love !!
God bless
