In Memory of CJ

Hello friends , Today I would like to ask for your help. My very good stampin friend Melissa (some of you may know her as stampedbym or have even visited her blog Stamp it Scrap it, Share it )has opened her heart to help a high school friend who recently lost his little girl Charlotte.
Charlotte was diagnosed with a brain tumor on January 20, 2009. You can read more about Charlotte and her family here. Sadly, Charlotte passed away on January 7th. Melissa is helping to pay it forward. I am asking all of my blog friends to open their hearts and make a difference in the life of another child.

Melissa's friend and his wife have created the CJs Thumbs Up Foundation in order to pay it forward. Their mission statement is this: To provide financial support to families of children with chronic, life-threatening illnesses through individual giving and public/private partnerships with organizations who have similar goals.
Melissa set out to find a way to help and with her good friend Joni, owner of Inktegrity they designed a beautiful image in Memory of Charlotte,





CJ loved to listen as her mom and dad read to her,and like all little girls loved the Disney Princess. My understanding, she was thought of as a butterfly and as you can see from the beautiful image Joni created she captured the important things in this little girl's precious life.

I am asking you to help by purchasing this beautiful image, by remembering Charlotte and helping her family to make a difference for such a worthy cause. All proceeds from the sale of this stamp will go directly to CJTUF.org to further their cause.

You can purchase this image by visiting Melissa's blog here this is posted on her side bar.

Here is my card for Charlotte

Many thanks and hugs for your help for a good cause.

I as a parent and grandmother, I can not begin to imagine the grief this family has endured and will in the days to follow. Open your heart, this will mean a lot to Charlotte's family and others.

Hugs
Jacki
