Help for Katie

For those who haven't seen this yet, this is a post about Katie Renz - you can meet her HERE on her Card blog and HERE on her Family Blog. 
Many of you may know that she has a wonderful husband, 3 beautiful little boys, that she is a super Mummy and talented crafter...she also has Stage 4 Gastic Cancer.
Today, her husband wrote an update on her blog. This is so sad and our hearts are broken and we continue to hope for Katie's Miracle!!!!!  WE ARE HOPING YOU CAN HELP.

We're trying to get the word out to to help Katie and her family with a financial gift.  

LORi Boyd was asked at the start of the year to design a stamp for Katie and her family. She ended up getting an email from Katie herself telling her how much she loved it. Katie said it really was her boys and was very appreciative.

So, at this time LORi and the rest of us would like to do a HUGE push of this image for the Renz Family.  It just so happens that Katie's 2 little guys have a birthday on the 19th of this month and her older boy has one on the 1st of December. The hope would be that we all could let them know we are thinking of them during these occasions so that Kevin and Katie do not have to think or worry about that (especially in light of the medical bills they are incurring too)!

The stamp is shown above in the Help4Katie logo, but I've also included an example below, of a card made by LORi.

You can help this cause for the RENZ FAMILY, by purchasing this stamp for $5. And then you can support them further (if you wish) by creating a card and sending it to them (CLICK HERE for details on where to send your card).



or if you'd like to donate what you wish:

_________All donations will receive a random image__________ 


AND if ANY of you would like to help spread the word on EVERY forum,
blog, etc etc you can think of, then the proceeds will go to The Renz
Family. We know she would be so appreciative that we are helping to wrap her
boys with our love and care.

THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH for supporting and loving Katie and her Family!   
PLEASE keep Praying for Katie's Miracle!!

Oh Mary J, my heart hurts for Katie and her family. I've been following her story & blog for a while now and my heart is heavy with sadness right now. Continued prayers for Katie and kudos to you & the papercrafting community for wrapping their arms around her & her family. I will do whatever I can to help.

This is such sad story, I feel so bad for her little boys and with them having birthdays coming up too. Hopefully we can all make a difference.

So sad, Mary. Katie's story brings tears to my eyes every time I read it. I'm praying for her and her family. It's great to see the crafting world come together like this.
