Hope for Jasenn
I wanted to tell you all about something very special going on right now, a wonderful person you may know, Linda Permann, started an Etsy store to raise money for her brother-in-law who is fighting stage IV kidney cancer. I'm not the only who knows how hard it is to make ends meet during the holiday season - and maybe you know firsthand how scary it is to deal with a sick family member and huge, scary hospital bills. That's why I think what she is doing is so lovely - with the help of crafters (and her own crafts) she's donating 100% of the proceeds from her store to Jasenn and his family.
So often we want to do a little something for someone else during the holiday season, but feel weird about giving to strangers or don't know where to start... this is a perfect way to give to a wonderful person and get something in return!
I donated my embroidered menorah to the store, and I would be honored if any of you purchase that or anything else from Linda's store. I would ship my embroidered piece to you, along with a few little goodies from my stash and my sincerest thanks for helping a young family this holiday! There are tons of great things in her shop, be sure to check it out!
Update: You guys are amazing! One day after this post, my menorah was purchased by Alli - thank you! There are still so many great things in the store - please visit!
