HEART TO HEART Blog Candy

WOW! I just cannot believe how big this got. As most of you know by now, I recently released my newest set through Gina K Designs called Whimsical Autumn, which benefits the Alzheimer's Association. My grandmother passed away in June from complications of this horrible disease and I wanted to try to help in any little way I could. I recently found out that today is World Alzheimer’s Day. The Board of Directors of the Alzheimer’s Association DOUBLED all donations given up until today so I asked Gina for some preliminary figures. After just two weeks, lots of sets have been sold. On Friday, I sent over my first commission--$450. So the first contribution ended up being $900! I am thrilled.

100% of my proceeds from this set will always go to the Alzheimer’s Association, but it was so much fun to send that first donation over. Here is the email I received after my donation:

Dear Carolyn,

Thank you for your friendship to the Alzheimer's Association. Your donation of $450.00 to our World Alzheimer's Day campaign is greatly appreciated and will be used to help fund vitally needed programs and services as well as critical Alzheimer research.
Your help is appreciated now more than ever. There are an estimated 5 million Americans currently affected, with another person developing Alzheimer's every 71 seconds ... By mid-century, someone will develop the disease every 33 seconds unless we do something.
Alzheimer's disease is an escalating epidemic due to our aging population. In fact, 10 million baby boomers will develop Alzheimer's disease in their lifetime.
Because of your gift today, we are one step closer to ensuring that more of us - our parents, ourselves, and our children - can grow older without fearing this devastating disease.


Sincerely,
Alzheimer's Association

So thank YOU! Because today is World Alzheimer’s Day, I wanted to do something special for another group of people who are affected by this disease---the caregivers. What began as a little idea----totally GREW! My hope was to get a few contributions from some stamping companies so that I would have a very cool prize to give away to one lucky winner who participated. AS you might have heard----the little prize turned into a GINORMOUS one! So many fabulous companies came forward and offered to contribute. I am so thankful to them.

In addition, I contacted a few WONDERFUL stamping friends to ask them if they would send a card (signed on the back) to add to the blog candy. Although I only asked a few people (and not my buddies out of the country because of the timing)—I had so many sweet emails and tons of handmade TREASURES donated by some of the best stampers/cardmakers out there!

So........ONE LUCKY PERSON WILL WIN OVER $1,000 in prizes PLUS ALL THE AMAZING HANDMADE GIFTS AND CARDS!!!!!!

I have been asked by a few people if I was planning on spreading out the prizes since it ended up being so huge….and I decided that I am going to stick with the original plan---that ONE person wins it all. Every person who plays along will receive a gift—the gift of making some person feel so special. But, I wanted this to be a big prize so that a lot of people play along. And, part of the fun of this blog candy is that whoever wins will be showered with gifts. I have a lot of them at my home and so the winner will receive a HUGE box from me. But some companies are sending out their own and many are gift certificates (as noted in the descriptions below) so the winner will be receiving goodies in the mail for a LONG TIME. How fun will that be?

***Before I get to the how you can win, I wanted to share that the Flourishes Design team all purchased the Whimsical Autumn set and are posting creations that they have made with this set today. Flourishes is one of the companies that donated to the cause and wanted to help generate more cards for this drive and so they took it one step further---please check out this link to see all of their fabulous cards. ((((Flourishes)))))

If you do not know anyone to send a card to you can send it to the address below (this is the home my grandmother lived in for the last few years of her life. The nurses, aids and support staff there were tremendous. It is such a difficult job and I would love to see them showered with cards!)

Wow, I just read your exciting news and blog candy and was it awe. This is just amazing what a turn out you are getting.

I have to agree Caregivers do go un noticed at times, I am sending my card to the nursing home I do some work for sometimes. It is very sad to see those people. I would love to take them all home with me. But I know that they are well taken care of there.

I am also excited that I don't have to blog or upload it onto a gallery, as time doesnt allow me all that. All you that have these blogs and galleries are so smart.

Three of the companies would be jacksonbelle embellishments, scor pal, and stampers dream. Two stampes would be Lauren Meader and Emily Giovanni.

Wow...that's alot of wonderful prizes. I used to work as a CNA and worked with alot of patient's who had Alzheimer's until about 4 years ago when I stopped working in order to stay at home and take care of my father-in-law who suffers from this awful disease.
We are still able to keep him at home and it can be very difficult at times but we just keep going. It hurts my heart so much to see how fast the disease takes one's mind. I haven't decided who I will send my card to as I have several options but here is the link...http://abc123.sewnews.com/index.php?option=com_zoom&Itemid=78&catid=63241&page=viewproj

I don't have a blog, but I did make a card to send to the wonderful person helping my grandmother, who is in the early stages of Alzheimer's. I used SU harvest stamp set, coloured it with my copics, and used a variety of Bazzil cardstock in rusts, oranges and browns.

Three companies that donated are MFT, Gina K, and the Cat's Pajamas. Two people who donated are Sharon Johnson and Beate Johns.

Cammie,
I'm so sorry about your grandmother. This is an amazing tribute to her and a wonderful way to celebrate her birthday. My grandmother is early to mid stage Alzheimers and it's increasingly difficult for my dad, her primary caregiver. I made my card for him.

My card will be posted here www.withflyingcolors.blogspot.com later tonight. I used the new tree set from Stampin Up and the new Autumn Vine paper. I will be mailing it to my grandmother's nursing home. She has passed on, but she had Ahlzheimer's and they took such good care of her. This is a terrible disease and I applaud your efforts! What a great thing that so many are doing. :)

Three companies who donated are My Score-Pal, JUst Rite Stampers and Splitcoast STampers. Two people who donated are Susan Liles.. I will have posted this on my blog later tonight.

Jane said...

Sorry if you get this twice. I don't know what happened to my original post. I was thanking you for this wonderful idea and generous blog candy. Our church started an Alzheimer's Day Care center in our fellowship hall which grew so large they had to build their own place. That was a wonderful mission for our church but stunk because of the great need for this type of thing. I have made the caregivers at the center a card and will send one to the address of your Grandmothers facility. I don't have a blog or know how to post a card. Sorry but thank you for recognizing the caregiver. The good thing about Alzheimers for the patient is you can't remember your memory is gone. The bad thing is your memory is gone. But the caregiver never forgets. Thank you. Jane Mykleby, janemykleby@yahoo.com

First of all thanks you for all that you have done for this cause and the many companiesand girls that have donated to this cause. My first companie is Gina K because I purchased her stamp on opening night in honor of my father-in-law- before I heard of this give-away.Just Rit Stampers and Verve Visual. 2 girls Alana from Godchick Designs and Dawn Lusk (love her card) I have sent a card to a friends sister who is a care giver to her husband. I will try to send a copy of it to Splitcoast Stampers. Have never done that before. Will try to find a helper. Thanks again so very much and God Bless.

All I can say is "WOW". I can't imagine the number of appreciation cards that this post is generating. This is important to me because all of my father's sisters had Alzheimers.

I don't have a blog and can't upload a picture of my card, but I'm e-mailing this information to my stamping friends and am sending a card to the Alzheimer's unit of my local nursing home.

I want to thank each company and person who generously donated. Three of the companies are Gina K Designs, Papertrey Ink, and JustRite Stamps. Two of the people are Kim Hughes and Dawn Lusk.

Thanks.

Wow, Cammie! What a wonderful thing to do. My grandpa is living with Alzheimer's, and it's very hard to see the progression of the disease and the effect it has on the entire family. I commend you for your efforts in raising awareness!

I made a card on my blog for my mom (she doesn't know it's for her) because she's the one who takes care of her father. Here's the link to the card: http://samanthawelch.blogspot.com/2008/09/awareness.html. I'm so excited about some of the companies who donated, specifically: Taylored Expressions, JustRite Stampers, and The Cat's Pajamas. I love the cards made by Cambria Turnbow and Dawn Lusk.

Cammie, I thank you for the time and love that went in to this project. My Mother in Law was taken from us by Alzeheimers, over 8 years, we watched the strong woman she was slowly disapear. The caregivers are tremendous people, the families affected... well there just aren't words for the sadness this disease brings. I know way too many friends that have been touched by Alzheimer's.
I made this card specially for a friend whose mother is just starting to show some symptoms of the disease. You can see the card here on my blog....

This was such an awesome thing that you did. I know how har it is to care for someone with this horrible condition. I went through this with my father, but his condition was so much worse and he became so violent that he had to be commited to a hospital and we have not been allowed to see him since because the visits make him worse because he can't remember us and it makes him angry. This is a card that I am sending to the facility that he is at.

The three companies I picked to mention were Score-pal, Flourishes, and SplitCoastStampers. The two individuals I picked to mention were Nicole Taylor (butterflyears), and Jessica Rone (Knightrone).

Thank you so much for your hard work towards this cause and for the love and caring of all of the individuals and companies who chose to take part in this project.
Hopefully some day there will be a cure to help stop this condition and the descrution that it does to the families and indiviuals that it attacks. -Mia

Wow.... what a list of wonderful products and cards!

My mom has this dreadful disease, so it is near and dear to me.

I like to make tea bag cards quite often, that way I can stick a bag of herbal tea in it , just for a little something extra special.

Also , love the House Mouse images and they always bring a smile to my face so I hope they do to others as well!

Hi Cammie!

We have a friend from our church who is a caregiver for her husband....she recently had to put him into a nursing home, and she has missed him so badly. I try to send a card ever so often just to let her know that we are remembering them in our prayers. My card will go to her.

There are so many wonderful companies donating blog candy for your cause, including Flourishes, Gina K, My Favorite Things, and many many others. Some of my favorite challenge stampers are donating cards too! Jessica (Knightrone), Chat (nitestamper), Carole (TruCarMa), Amy (rohla) and Sharon (notimetostamp, whom I had the privilege of meeting on our vacation to the UP) to mention a few. Thanks to all of you for such an awesome offering of treasure!

Thanks also to Riley for letting me know about this! I am happy to participate, and would LOVE to win the motherlode of blog candies! :)

This is such a wonderful way to honor your grandmother. I'm sure she would be proud of you.

My husband and I spent several years helping with my mother-in-law, who developed Alzheimers about 10 years before her death. She passed away in 2001. My mother, who had recently retired, did so much to help us take care of Jean that I've sent her a card to thank her for all her help.

I don't have a blog and didn't know how to upload a picture, but I did mention this to several of my stamping friends and hope they entered as well. If they didn't, at least they now know about your blog!

Three companies that donated to your blog candy are: Unity Stamp Company, Scor-Pal, and My Favorite Things. Two individuals who donated are: Cambria Turnbow and Carole Burrage.

I am so grateful to the wonderful caregivers who have the patience to deal with Alzheimer's patients each and every day. There were many times we felt at the end of our ropes, but, thankfully, we never all hit that point at the same time.

How wonderful of you to do this! The gallery at CK won't work for me right now, but I will be posting my card over there. Thank you so much to Rae for telling us all about this! What a wonderful thing to do for the people that take such good care of those that can't do it for themselves. My Grandad had Alzheimer's, and my Grannie took such good care of him. I wish I would have thought to send her a thank you card. I will be sending mine to my brother who works very closely to those with this and many other aweful diseases as their activities cordinator.

Gosh darn it, I think I'm reading this about 1 hour too late to enter, but I do want to congratulate you on your stamp design, on donating all of your commission, and on raising awareness of Alzheimers. My FIL has it, and MIL is his caregiver - I just sent her a card this week.

Kudos to you!

WOW!!!!! What amazing blog candy for a truly amazing cause. I have relatives with dementia but theirs either was not diagnosed as Alzheimer's or was/is not related (my uncle has a brain tumor so it is related to that). I am honored to participate. And there is a secondary bonus if I win the candy... I am putting on a fundraiser of my own in Nov. to benefit our adoption fund. A basket or 2 or 3 of the Blog candy prizes sure would make excellent silent auction prizes!!! Thanks Cammie! Sorry so long-winded.... ;)

Sorry I did not get an entry in! I did make a card to send to the nursing home where my mother resides. She is also a victim of alzheimers and the staff takes wonderful care of her!

WOW! I missed the timing for that awesome blog candy package ... but SO happy I stumbled upon your site (through another SCS blogger site). I'm definitely putting you in my favorites.

I have had a number of people in my family with Alzheimers and a number of my staff at work have dealt with (or are currently dealing with it).

I'm going to send out a card to my Aunt just to say hi. She used to write books with my uncle (who's passed away). Now she finds it so hard to remember.

With tears in my eyes, thank you for your generosity with your stamp set!! And continued success!!

Gina said...

Three companies who contributed:
Angela Sgro, Scor-Pal, Flourishes

I am sad to say I found this too late to enter but I want to thank you for recognizing all the caretakers of alzheimers patients. I also lost my grandmother to complications of this horrible disease. It took my mother, step father and three sisters and I much time and anquish to make her final years as pleasant as possible.

Yes I found it late too but what a great thing to do. So I went ahead and sent a set of cards to my granddad because my grandma passed away 2 years ago after suffering for 11 years with the disease.
