Project Happy Hearts

Do you know Kasey from Chronicles of a Mommy? If not, you should. Put stopping by her site on your to-do list.

Recently, she wanted to organize something in Tuesday's honor. You've all heard of Tuesday by now, right? She prayed and thought a lot about this. She said,

"I wanted to turn this ache that I feel into positive energy and honor Tuesday's time here. I know that her story did not end with her time here on earth. I have teamed up with Tabitha at A FiveOhFour Uplifting. Tabitha, along with her family, have a mission to organize goody bags for ALL children with ALL illnesses along with women & children in homeless shelters. This month her family is donating all of the goody bags in Tuesday's honor. The recipients of these bags will be the patients of the San Antonio Methodist Children's Hospital. Please visit A FiveOhFour Uplifting to see how you can help."

Through Tabitha, she also found the Make A Child Smile organization. This organization provides information for people, like you & me, to write uplifting and spirited letters to children with chronic illnesses.

So, Kasey affectionatly dubbed this her little venture {Project Happy Hearts}. She asked each of her readers to donate to A FiveOhFour Uplifting's mission and/or write a letter to a child in Tuesday's honor.

So, this is how we helped make someone's heart smile in Tuesday's honor. Emma wrote a story about a Strawberry for a sick child, and we're hoping that it brightens their day.

HAPPY VALENTINE'S Day!

About a month ago you mentioned that you used a cybershot on the pics at DL. I have a cybershot and my pictures look NOTHING like yours. It's 7.2 megapixels. Sorry to be bothering you about this, but I am trying to figure out what kind of camera to get and I'm not really ready to invest $600 on a Canon.
