CU Night Sky, coordinating FB freebie and a new charity collab

Hi all,

first I want to tell you about out new charity kit at Digital Scrapbooking Studio aka theStudio – actually I will let Toiny aka theStudio owner tell you about it:

“It has been over a month since the mass shooting at a movie theater in colorado, for most of us this means it’s forgot or barely niggling our brain sometimes during the day.  But for the victims of the shootings this is still their life. My heart aches for those that lost their loved ones, I cannot even begin to imagine their pain.  My heart and prayers are with their families.

In addition to those killed, there were 58 people wounded.  Each of them has a story, and one of those stories touched my heart.  You can read about Caleb Medley here: a website started by his friend Vilmos.  It is the kind of thing I would do for my friend, maybe that is why it touched me.  Or maybe it is that Caleb is the age of my older sons.  Quite possibly it is the birth of his son, Hugo, days after the shooting.

Regardless of why Calebs story tugged at my heartstrings the most, it tugged.  I had to do something to help. I reached out to my design team and they immediately agreed to help me as well.  Together we created a beautiful, happy, filled-with-hope mega kit.  Now we are offering it at a very low price.  Our goal is to raise as much money as possible and send that Caleb’s way.  He faces a very long recovery and he will need help for years to come. My hope is we can help just a little, and let him know he is not alone.

All monies raised from the sale of our mega kit will got to Caleb.  All fees will be paid by theStudio.  We have three donation options for you $3.00, $5.00 or $10.00.  You receive the For Caleb Mega Kit free with each option, and a couple of small bonuses for a $5.00 or a $10.00 donation.

Charity Kit for Japan

Charity Kit for Japan

I am here to ask all of you to give a little.  In return our Studio Designers have created a gorgeous Charity kit for Japan.  All proceeds from the sale of this kit (I mean 100% all) will go to Samaritan’s Purse specifically earmarked for Japan Relief.

We have all been shocked and saddened by the utter devastion wrought by the March 11th earthquake and tsunami.  The ongoing battle with Japan’s nuclear reactors and the damage of the fallout continues to horrify all of us.  That one of the richest countries on this planet, one with so many resources, can suffer such a great fall is a scary wake-up call for us all.  My prayers and thoughts are with everyone affected.  If ever I needed a magic wand, it is now.
I have no magic wand.  I do have a ton of compassion, a modicum of talent and a small internet store.  I also have an amazing team of Designers who jump whenever I call for help.  Together, and with your help, we hope to raise as much money as possible.  So please, take a look at our kit, spend a little of your hard-earned money and help.
Here’s a list of the designers who contributed to this great kit: Aimee Harrison Design Studios,  Ambowife Designs, BooLand Designs, eqrAveziur Designs, DarleneHDeli Scraps by Min, Digilicious Designs, Julie C., Let Me ScrapbookLinda Cumberland, Monika Designs, Nibbles Skribbles, Piggy Scraps DesignShelly Marie Scraps, SKrapper DigitalsSnips and Snails Designs and Susan Godfrey Designs
