You Are Worth It

My sweet fellow blogger, Carole, From My Carolina Home is starting a card drive for battered women.  She reached out to me and asked if I would help spread the word.  Of course I said yes.   Here's what she has to say:

First, I'd like to invite my stamping and card making readers to make some cards of encouragement and support for these ladies.  Something that says "you are worth it".  Cards that are uplifting and supportive.  Make several in the same design, or use different designs, it is up to you.  The only request is to keep them uplifting in tone, and to not use a religious theme as there are many different religions represented in the residents and we won't know who is getting what.  Inside the card you can hand write, stamp, or use your computer to make an uplifting message.  You could say something like this on the inside -

"As you go through this time of change,know that you are important and valued.You deserve to be happy and safe.
Good luck with your future plans."

Sign the card as you like - either "A friend who cares", or something similar, or your first name.  Mail your completed cards to me with an envelope for each one addressed only as "For You". 

Isn't this a wonderful thing Carole is putting together?  It goes right along with the Calling All Sistahs Encouragement Challenge I coordinate every month.  My Card of Encouragement for these ladies:
