♥ Project Happy Hearts ♥




We have all been so saddened by the loss of Tuesday Whitt over the past few weeks. But there are a special few who have chosen to act... determined to turn loss into hope.  Kacey over at Chronicles of a Mommy has put her money where her mouth is, and has invited us all to do the same through her Project Happy Hearts

A couple of weeks ago, she featured two great (and EASY) ways to help sick kids...

Tabitha at A Five Oh 4 Uplifting is dedicated "to 'Spreading Smiles Worldwide' to all children and adults in need of uplifting." She makes and delivers goody bags to hospitals and shelters. If you email her at afiveoh4uplifting@gmail.com, she'll send you a list of items needed for the bags that can be purchased and shipped directly to her from OrientalTrading.com. 

Make a Child Smile is an organization that "provides information for people to write uplifting and spirited letters to children with chronic illnesses." What's easier than writing a letter? 

I chose to sit down with my kids and write some letters to the featured kids on the Make a Child Smile website. It is my hope that our simple, silly and sincere warm wishes will give these seriously ill children a reason to smile and offer a brief distraction from the brave battles they are fighting.

Now I am off to email Tabitha to get her wish list. What's more fun than a little online shopping on a cold and rainy Saturday night?

Happy Valentine's Day ...

This is a great idea--we are home today due to yucky coughs and colds, so this will be a great project to do. Thanks!
