HI all,

I am putting together 2 charity kits to benefit a friend of mine who is adopting a little SN boy from Haiti. This little guy is 15 months old and has a very large hernia (easily corrected by surgery here in the US). She is adopting from the same orphanage we are adopting Clarens from.

If there are any designers here (or people who like doing it for fun) that are interested in helping please e-mail me. Also if anyone knows someone who would like to help, let me know.

Thus far the deisgners that have agreed to help are:
Kay Miller
Christy Skaggs
Restored Elegence
On My Own Designs
Karen Wallace

Here is the color palate that we are using (picked out by Christy Skaggs)

and it was based on this Haitian painting that I have

If you want to be involved, the 2 kits that we are doing (you can choose one or both...both are based on the same color palate):
Haiti in my Heart series
#1 Hope for Anderson - Theme: children, play, adoption
#2 Bringing Anderson Home - Theme: tropical, travel, Haiti

I am hoping to have kit #1 done by the end of May so that it can come out in June....and #2 done by the end of June so that it can come out in July.

THANKS!!!

Here is little Anderson (me holding him on April 11, 2010)

What a wonderful thing you're doing here, Wendy. I guess we know why you've been busy lately--your little guy will be so lucky to join your family!

Thanks Dona. We started the adoption process for Clarens back in early March and it has been crazy busy since then. We also went on vacation in mid-March (planned way back in Jan) and just before we left on that we got in on plans to go to Haiti with a group (April 9-11) of other adoptive parents all visiting their children. Also add into that, me teaching a homeschool co-op class for 10 weeks (3 left to go).

I have hardly done any scrapping at all since the end of March...just no time!

I think it's a wonderful thing, too. Your photos brought tears to my eyes! I wish I could design and help! All I can offer is to ask that you please let me know when the kit is available ... I'll buy it, for sure! The color palette is gorgeous ... it's sure to be a beautiful kit. Best wishes!

Marshmella-Thanks so much!! I will send you a PM with the information I sent to the others.

As far as where this is being sold....I'm still working out those details. If the store I am working with right now decides that they can't do it, I have other possiblities.

Also I will let everyone know when this kit does come out.

Michaela - I am working on the previews and trying to get a few last minute things done. I am hoping it will be released by thte end of the week yet. It will be sold as DSG. I will PM you a copy of the preview once it is complete. Thanks again SO much!

Hope For Anderson is in the store at DSG!! Since this site requests that you do not put any links for other stores here, I have not included the link. If you want the link just send me a PM.

A special thanks to all of those here at GDS who helped by contributing to this awesome kit: Marshmella Designs , Jenn (Dancing Princess), Darlene Currie, Stacie, JStockert, Lone, and Rebecca

If you are helping with Bringing Anderson Home, please rememeber that it is due June 30 (I might extend that date as I am gone on vacation from June 21-28). Also if you are NOT on the list and would like to help, please let me know. I will make a new list of those helping (the new one will have a theme of Tropics/vacation/Haiti). THANKS!!

Lone - if you did not get the PM from me with the link to the kit, please let me know.

There were 4 GDS people who posted their LOs for me, I sent you your gifts via PM on the other site (they do not send out an e-mail when you get a PM).

THANKS ALL!!
