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!)

If you do not have a blog, that is fine...just mention it when you upload your card. If you cannot upload your card (because you do not know how) that is fine. Just tell someone about this!)

Please, only one entry per person. In your comment please link your card and also list three companies and two individuals who have donated to the blog candy. Finally, be sure to link this post to your blog and spread the word! Don’t forget to include your email address so I can contact you if you win!

However, I have told all of my stamping friends about this blog. Three of my favorite companies that donated are Splitcoaststampers, Papertrey Ink and JustRite Stampers.

Bless your heart Carolyn, your grandma is smiling in heaven.

I am going to send my card to my sister who is the caregiver of our very sick father. Without her we would be lost as she cares for him 24/7.

I am also sad that I don't have a blog to promote this great news you are doing for fellow stamps. I go weekly to the library to check out blogs as I don't own a computer. Have to wait until next Tuesday when I check again. I was glad you opened this up to everyone. Thank you Carolyn for giving us all a chance.

Three companies you mention are unity stamps, gina k, and my favorite things.

Two stampers would be Lauren Meader and Sharon Harnist.

You will make someone feel like they won a million bucks Saturday.

Wow, Cammie, this is just amazing. Here is the card I made, which I will be sending to your grandmother's care facility.

I am just blown away by the generosity of companies like MFT with the special discount and donations they made and all those sets from Verve and the Cats Pajamas and so many other.

Stampers are the best. Amazing generosity from Kim Hughes, Melanie, Joanne and all the rest. It truly is heart warming.

Thank You! I am touched by your generosity and all the donations you have received from individuals and stamping companies for this worthwhile cause. Reading all the comments has been emotional and rewarding
Alzheimers has affected our family with my father being the latest. My mom took care of my dad for about 10 years at home before he had to be placed in a nursing home. The care he received there was GREAT! We had another 6 years with him even though he had long been gone from us because of this disease.
I do not have a blog to post my card but I sent a card to my mom and to the Kelliher Care Center in Kelliher, MN thanking them for the special care they gave to my father. I am also sharing your blog information and worthy cause with the members of two card exchange groups I belong to.
3 companies who donated are My Favorite Things, JustRite Stampers and Verve Visual. 2 individuals who donated are Lauren Meader and Charmaine Ikach.

It is so wonderfulwhat you are doing Cammie. And, so many have stepped forward to be part of this. My Mother didn't have Alzheimer's but she had a debilitating muscular disease that eventually took her ability to walk, control her bodily functions, dress or feed herself. My father spent many years tirelessly caring for her. This reminded me I needed to say Thank You again, and again.....

My card can be seen at www.texasscrapaddict.blogspot.com or http://imascrapaddict.myphotoalbum.com/view_photo.php?set_albumName=album09&id=thankyou.

My silliness continues...I posted this on the wrong date....I really need to unclutter my mind and schedule!....Carolyn, my apologies! I think I have made the appropriate corrections to my blog. Now, I'll update my automated blog emails to include yours. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction and again, kudos on your successful awareness program, it certainly made me think. If this becomes an annual process (hint hint) please let me know. I'll see what I can offer as part of the next blog offering.

Wow! All it takes is one persons kindness to spread the word about Alzheimers. I don't know anyone personally affected but I know someone who works at the neighbourhood retirement home.

Hi Cammie---thank you for your work with Alzheimer's. It has affected our family as my father in law was diagnosed years ago. My mother in law took care of him until he passed away peacefully in his own bed a few years ago. I have put a card in the mail to my mother in law, just to thank her for taking good care of him for so long! We need to find a cure for this disease!! Thanks to all who contributed towards this cause! Thanks. Karen D.

This is truly impressive and for such a great cause, how could anyone resist. Thank you for putting this together. As a nurse who has cared for Alzheimer's patients I have seen firsthand the stresses that caregivers go through and how it is often a thankless job. They truly deserve these cards.

Wow... Cammie this is indeed over the top! Isn't it wonderful how just one person can make a difference... I'm so proud of what you have done... and thank you for allowing me to help too.

I admire her strength.

Wow, what a fantastic way to bring awareness of such a life-changing disease. I don’t know if you are allowing international entries or not, but I wanted to thank you for such an opportunity anyway. I haven’t been personally affected by Alzheimer’s disease but have been moved by the stories of those who have. I did a bit of research here and discovered several happenings this week for Alzheimer’s awareness week. I plan on sending my card into the Alzheimer’s care unit of the hospital to thank them for their patience and caring for the patients they have. I don’t have a blog or anywhere to post my card.

Hi Cammie,

I'm so sorry for your loss. I totally agree with you on the people who take care of our loved ones, like these people do, deserve some special attention!

Cammie: Without a doubt this has to be the most generous and heartfelt post I've seen on ANY BLOG - and what a fabulous cause this is for. Both my parents passed away from Alzheimer's and I can say first hand-anyone and anything connected with Alzheimer's has a SPECIAL PLACE in all our hearts. I don't have a blog and can't upload a picture but will be forwarding a couple cards out to the Staff at Artman House in PA.

Please consider me for this amazing blog candy-I planning on sharing this win with the many alzheimer's residents at my work during a planned Activity Event I'm hoping to host in November. I'm going to get a group of my volunteers together and we are going to work with our residents to do holiday projects and many of these items would make a great starting point for our needs. Thanks for making this opportunity possible for all of us. Kadie

This is just amazing. My grandfather has alzheimers with lewy bodies and my aunt is his caretaker. I can't tell you how much I love her for doing all she does to make his remaining days comfortable. This is a great reminder to reach out and say thanks for all you do, because so often I take for granted that he is being cared for.

This charity means a great deal to me. My grandfather had "dementia". We always said he was out in left field. Being 34 years ago we didn't know about Alzheimers. My dear grandmother tended to him for 7 years. He never left the house and was pretty much bed bound. I am sending my card to The Artman Home. I do not have a blog. I really don't know where else to post it!

A wonderful idea! I am a nurse who cares for chronically ill patients, and I can tell you that all of these cards will be appreciated, and treasured! It is a thankless job at time, and a small gesture such as a card to let them know they are making a difference means a whole lot more than you can imagine! I will gladly make cards and pass them to family members, post the cause on my blog.

After reading of the loss your friends baby girl... Free scrapbooking supplies just doesn't seem all that important to me right now! So I do not want to enter for the blog candy, just here to offer my support!

What a great idea. My dad has this disease and it's affecting our whole family, espcially my mom, who is the one taking care of him. My grandpa just died on 8/9 with it as well. That was a long journey. He had many, many bad days, which is what my mom isn't look forward to.

I will send my cards to my mom and to my aunt, who are and were both their caretakers. I do not have a scanner and my camera is still the old fashion kind, film.

Hi Cammie

I am posting my entry here, the card I made was for my mom's caretaker Nestley, she is quite an amazing person and thank you for making me realize that she too needs encouragement, she has always kind words for us.

Hope this is the right place for it, I'm pretty sure this is what I understood.

Thank you Cammie for organizing such an awesome contest, not only for the gifts but for what the awareness it brings around the world.

Kindly, Peggy aka marilynprestonn

Oh hun, you have done an incredible job here and I want to say thankyou for working so hard. I hope lots of cards are making carers smile as a result of your efforts. I was a carer for 7 years to my little boy before he died and I know how hard it is but also how lonely it can be too. I am sending the card I made to the home where you grandmother lived. There are so many unsung heroes in this world. I hope I can brighten their day.

What a wonderful thing you are doing for these awesome caregivers.

I don't have a blog but I am sending my card to my mom who took care of my grandmother for 16 years before she lost her own battle with Alzheimer's. My mom is amazing and it has been a tough road for her. I would love to win this blog candy so that I could give it to her.

I have shared what you are doing with all of stamping friends. Hopefully they will join in as well.

Three companies that have contributed (it was hard to narrow it down) are Papertrey Ink, Gina K Designs, and High Hopes Stamps.

Two individuals are Joanne Basile and Lauren Meader (love their stuff).

My name is Tracy and my email address is tlpond@gmail.com. Thanks for the chance to win and for your recognition of those that work in this difficult but rewarding field.

My granddad was afflicted by what we now believe to be Alzheimers, but was undiagnosed when he was sick in the early 1970s. He was uncontrollable at home and kicked out of a half dozen nursing homes before my dad finally found a home where Boppa was cared for by a group of wonderfully engergetic and hopefilled nuns.

I think this contest and the story behind it is just one more example of the wonderful community that is built by stampers. All of you have inspired me to finally join up and start sharing. I don't have a blog, but I've posted my card to my brand new Splitcoast gallery:

WOW is all I can say. The generousity of the world is amazing!

This is such a horrible disease. My friends mother passed away this summer from complications of Alzheimers. It is a disease that changes a persons true nature so much that it hurts the caregivers. Geri was such a wonderful person BA (before Alzheimers) and to see the drastic change just made me cry everytime I saw her. My friend does my hair every month, so even though I didn't see her daily, I watched her downhill progress.

I don't have a way to scan my card, and don't have anyone I know to send it to, so I'll send it to you. I don't have a blog set up yet.

Three companies (of the very many) who donated are Starving Artists Stamps, Scor-Pal and Sweet & Sassy Stamps. Two individuals who donated are Denise Marzee and Laura Canale

WOW! What a generous bunch of people! I personally haven't known anyone going through this horrible disease, thank God, but I know I have read about so many people with this and it is so sad. I have already sent a card out to your Grandmother's home, (yesterday) but I didn't take a picture, Just popped it in an envie and mailed without thinking. I will probably send another, if I can make one tonight and take the picture and put it on SCS. Thanks for what you are doing, it is such a wonderful thing and to all the contributors also. Unity, Starving Artistamps, and Score pal, plus all the others. Cammie, there are so many people out there who will appreciate what you are doing. Bless you.

He will go out to get in his car and not even know which one is his. Most of the time he just doesnt know were he is. I know it is hard work for the caregivers and I know they must have such patience. God Bless them..

Cammie,

What a wonderful tribute to people that really give selflessly on a daily basis! I know that they will all appreciate the gratitude you are displaying. I have posted my entry at http://stampin-suz.blogspot.com/ and mentioned your blog candy there as well. The two people I blogroll all the time that gave cards to your cause were Beate Johns and Cambria Turnbow. And three companies providing prizes were Eclectic Paperie, Papertrey Ink, and Jacksonbelle Embellishments. You can reach me at suz.roberts@sbcglobal.net if I'm fortunate enough to win!

Thanks for all you do - I'm a big fan!

I am very sorry that I do not have a way to post my card, nor do I have a blog. I will be sending a card to a male friend who recently lost his wife to this terrible disease. What a wonderful caretaker he was. He commented to me that taking care of his 2nd wife who suffered from this disease was even more difficult than caring for his first wife, who he lost to cancer. I can only imagine, and applaud his courage and compassion.
Three wonderful companies who contributed to your blog candy are: Unity Stamp Company, Scor-Pal, and Polka Dot Plaza. Two designers who generously contributed are Cambria Turnbow, and Deborah Anton. Thank you for this opportunity to care for others. Linda ls4@windstream.net

I don't have a blog, but I did mention this blog candy in the gallery where I posted my card and will be letting my freinds and family know. I think what you are doing is great.

Thanks to all the individuals and companies who donated stamps, cards, paper, ribbon and so much more for this blog candy. It makes me happy seeing companies I normally buy stuff from, like Jacksonbelle Embellishments, Papertrey Ink, and Eclectic Paperie, be so generous when it comes to a good cause. There are alos lots of individuals donating whose blogs I visit regularly for inspiration. Two of them are Jody Morrow (Confessions of a Ribbon Addict) and Sharon Johnson (notimetostamp).

Cammie,
What an awesome job you are doing here, and what a great support group you have donating.

I had a father-in-law in the early stages of alzheimers when he passed away. It was a mystery to the family until some of his other brothers started getting diagnosed with it eventually ending one brothers life in the advanced stages. It was sad to see and so hard on the family. I currently do not know a care giver so I sent my card to the address you provided. I don't have the card posted (as I do not have the equipment to do so and have no blog), but I am telling everyone I know about this.

Thank you so much,

The 3 companies I will list are Gina K Designs (where I saw this posted), Stampin Bella and Scor-pal. Two of the people donating cards are Cambria Turnbow and Beate Johns. The cards are outstanding and would be such a treasure to have.

Thank you again for bringing this cause to the front for many people to see.

You rock!!!!!

I don't have a blog to post my card. However, I sent one to Hales Rest Home in Spanish Fork, Utah. They cared for my grandmother during her last stages of Alzheimer's Disease. She was lucky in that she did not begin suffering from this horrible disease until she was 90 years old. Last month marked our 16th year without her. I still miss her so much. Thank you so much for urging so many to thank the caregivers of our loved ones with Alzheimers.

Three companies who have donated prized are Scor-Pal, Stamper's Dream and Verve Visual. Two stampers who have donated cards are Beate Johns and Carole Burrage.

Thank you, again!

Hi Cammie! WOW! This is just incredible!! Both of my grandmothers suffered from Alzheimer's and it was heartbreaking. I was a part-time caregiver for one of them, so I know firsthand how difficult it can be. I think this is such a great thing you've done, as well as everybody who donated!

I love what you are doing for the Alzheimer Association. I have had several family members with this disease, which concerns me about developing it later in life, with everyone's support maybe they can make great strides in understanding and if not wiping this out, at least making it livable, if there is such a thing.
I do not have a blog, but did share this on an email list that I belong to. Also, my card that I sent to a good online friend's husband who works with Alzheimer patients in Florida.

Serendity? Coincidence? Or God? I think God has a hand in this effort. My heart is so tender for this cause because we just moved my sister-in-law to an assisted living nearby so we can help take care of her (she is in early stages of Alzheimer's). It is a heart-breaking disease.

I posted my cards and did a "chatty-kathy" kind of post about your Alzheimers Outreach on my blog at www.creativityisgood.blogspot.com/2008/09/apples-for-alzheimers.html.

What an incredible person you are to allow us to share this giving to others. My Card is going to the caring people at the Nampa Care Center (their Alzheimer's unit) and I'm sending an extra card to the staff who also took care of my precious mother in the cancer ward. Both are tough places to work and deserve or praise and thanks. I listed your blog on my site at http://www.yuwie.com/scrappergal/ so I hope more will send cards from that. I can't upload my card because my battery is dead in my digital camera - go figure- but both are in blues and browns with a fall flower on the front. The three companies I'd like to list are Verve Visuals, Scor Pal, and Flourishes .. but all the companies and donations have blown me away. Two individuals I'll mention are Lauren Meader and Nicole Taylor. Bless you for your work for others. My email is scrappergal@gmail.com.
