Tis the Season for Giving...

THIS RAFFLE TICKET GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED, THANK YOU TO ALL WHO PARTICIPATED!

WINNERS ARE REBECCA C. & CYNTHIA H.


Here's a picture of Erica! Isn't she a sweetheart!


I recently found out that one of my Out Of The Box Sampler box buyers each month, was using her box purchases to help out a little girl so she would have Christmas presents to give her mom and aunts. I thought that was wonderful. After a couple emails back and forth I found out a little more about this amazing little girl named Erica. Her story tugged at my heartstrings and I knew I had to do something for her and I'm hoping you will want to help me too.

Let me tell you about her...

Erica is an 8 year old 3rd grader with Merosin-deficient muscular dystrophy. It is congenital, so she has had it since birth. She is in a motorized wheelchair. She is extremely intelligent, keeps up with all her school work and is quick to charm people. She is very kind hearted and compassionate, with a quick wit. She has made many friends since school started in September. She loves Barbies, the Jonas Brothers, Hannah Montana, art projects, and singing. Erica's wish, which Make a wish is granting, is to go to Disney World Fl, for her birthday which is March 13.

Here's where you and I come in at...

Make A Wish needs everyone's help to make sure that Erica gets her wish. This economic downturn we're all having has really affected the charities this year. People just don't have the money to donate like they used to. So I decided that I was going to raffle off two of our Halloween Sampler boxes from October. If you missed this last Halloween box, here's your chance to win it, AND, help Erica get her wish too.

Our Halloween box was just awesome, but I've made it even better. I've combined the 3 boxes we had left over into two that have a total of 21 samples each!

Want a chance to win? Here's how to do it...

RAFFLE TICKETS WILL BE SOLD FOR JUST $1.00 EACH. You can purchase just one ticket or as many as you'd like. The more tickets you purchase, the more chances you'll have to win and the more money we'll raise for Erica.

100% OF THE MONEY COLLECTED WILL BE DONATED STRAIGHT TO ERICA FOR HER MAKE A WISH!

When you purchase a raffle ticket or multiple tickets thru our paypal button below, each one will be assigned a number that I will keep track of. At the end of the week, I will use the Random number Generator to pull two winning raffle ticket numbers. I'll come back here and post who the winners are.

If you would just like to donate instead of buying raffle tickets, you can do that also thru the paypal button below. Just put a little note that says your donating to Erica's Wish.

So open your hearts and your pocket books so we can have a little part in making wishes come true for a little girl who will have the time of her life at Disney World!

DO you know if they have accommodations in Orlando thru Make A Wish? If not, I have several timeshares and would be glad see if I can get something for them. (No charge to them, of course)

I am the parapro that is with Erica. To say I am touched by the generosity and kind hearts of people, would be an understatement. With the condition the economy is in (especially here in the state of MI) charities are hurting. Michelle stepped in without hesitation to help a complete stranger, without any qualms. I wanted to thank everybody that has donated, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you so very much. I mentioned to Michelle that Erica's Mom said Parents magazine is supposed to do a story on Erica. I will keep you posted on that too. Thank you Kim for your kind, kind offer. I will pass it on to Erica's Mom, and give her your email addy. What a thoughtful and generous thing to do. I am absolutely overwelmed by this. I can only hope that my written word conveys my gratefulness to you kind people. Once again, thank you.
