2nd Annual Roses for Rylan Fundraiser

Aaahhhh, 2012. Welcome. Time to get my CF kickin' booty back into the swing of things. I am bound and determined to make this our biggest fundraising year yet. It's time for Rylan's Renegades to surpass the $10k mark.....the $15k mark....and make it to the $20k mark!! (I've got a healthy little contest going with another CF mama, which definitely is a win-win for everyone!!). There are so many wonderful things happening in the CF world, so now is the time to kick it into high gear.

If a 'cure' is so close (fingers/toes/and every hair on my head crossed), why is it necessary to donate, you ask? THIS is why it's necessary. There are little boys and little girls struggling with the why's and what if's of this ugly disease. There are young husbands and wives being taken too early from this ugly disease. There are people out there struggling just to take a breath. Is that ok with you? Because it's not ok with me. These people are my family and my friends. Our cure is close, but it's not here yet. The momentum is moving forward, but it needs to be BARRELING forward. And don't you want to be a part of that? I know I do. My New Year's resolution is to raise $20k for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Rylan's Renegades. And with your help, we'll get there.

Ok. Exhale.......

.......I'm off my soapbox now.

Our 1st little fundraiser of the year is.....wait for it.....the 2nd Annual Roses for Rylan, Gettin' Crafty for a Cure. I know. Original, huh? Ok.....I'm not claiming to be uber creative....and I definitely didn't do too hot in my marketing class in college. Simply put, our 1st Roses for Rylan fundraiser went great, so why fix something that ain't broke. Brilliant, right?

So, here are the details. For $7 each, or $13 for 2, you get a fun little card that we've put together.
(I got the inspiration from a cute little blog I found via Pinterest, of course! Check out her fun designs here!!)

Each card has a handmade "rose" barrette (for little girls).....

....or a fabric "rose" bobby pin for us big people.

You can choose what the message of the card says.....whether it's for a birthday or just to say hi. And the best part?

ALL proceeds will go to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (Rylan's Renegades). I'll even throw in a stamped envelope for you, so there's no excuse for you to miss your cousin's next birthday.

What I need from you:
1. How many cards do you want?
2. What do you want each card to say? Options are: Happy Birthday, Missing You, Thinking of You, or Hi Friend.
3. Do you want a bobby pin or barrette attached?
4. What is your address?

Send the above info to teresajmack@gmail.com and I'll send you payment information.

**DISCLAIMER: No, I'm not a 'pro-scrapbooker' and no, I'm not Hallmark. These cards are just a fun way to raise some money for our cure. Thanks for joining this Mommy on a Mission!!**
