Katy's Kindness Blog Hop

Hello and Welcome to the Kindness Campaign Card Drive and blog hop. The Katy M. Murphy Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by Katy's mom Amiee. Katy had a congenital heart defect and lost her life at the tender age of 6. Amiee started the Foundation to honor her daughter's memory.

The Katy M. Murphy Foundation would like to start sending out Kindness Kits to families that are on similar journey as Katy. The purpose of a Katy's Kindness Kit is to share a bit of happiness with a child, and their families, that are stuck in the hospital. Each kit will contain items that brought Katy happiness during her many hospitalizations and will be delivered to patients, inpatient, at Boston Children's Hospital specifically on the cardiac floors. 

We would like to add a handmade card to each kit and that is where YOU come in. We will need many cards and are turning to the card making community for help.

Today we are kicking off the card drive with a blog hop. We are hoping that all of you will help us by sending in cards to help complete Katy's Kindness Kits. The foundation will be delivering kits to the hospital to help make the children and their families stay at the hospital easier, or kinder if you will.

All the details for the card drive can be found HERE, as well as a list of AMAZING sponsors who have offered up some phenomenal prizes to be raffled off to those who submit cards. Please read the rules carefully. The card drive will run from February 14th to April 15th, 2017.

I made this sweet card using Purple Onion Designs stamp just for this hop:

I hope many of you will help and participate by sending in cards. As card maker, we have lots of handmade cards in our stash, what better way than putting them for good use to brighten someone's day, right?
Now, let's get on with the hop. Here is the list of participating blogs. Thank you for stopping by here and may your day be a blessed one filled with lots of love.
