Win Prizes and Help Someone

Hi everyone! Just wanted to step in for a minute and tell you how you can win some wonderful prizes and help a fellow stamper in the process. I belong to several rubber stamping/cardmaking groups on the internet, and one of our list members, Bron Gibson has fallen on some really hard times. In February, she had to have her right leg amputated just below the knee. Then just 2 weeks ago, her husband, Jim, was suddenly fired from his job. The apartment they were living in was one of the perks of his job, so they have had to vacate it immediately. They are now using up their retirement savings to live in a motel. At most, they can live there 45 days, then their money will be gone.
They are trying to get from Georgia to Texas where a lifelong friend of Bron's has a house waiting for them.
In the meantime, they are in dire straits.

The rubber stamping group is trying to help Bron and Jim by having an Online Raffle to raise money to help Bron and Jim get to Texas, to help them eat between now and then, to help get Bron to therapy, and to help them in any way we can.

you can help Bron and Jim by buying tickets for the Raffle.

Tickets are $1 apiece, or 6 tickets for $5.
If you'd like to help, you will need to send a check or money order, made out to JIM GIBSON or BRON GIBSON and mail them to

She will add your tickets to a hopper and she will notify you of the numbers on your tickets, and keep a running tab of what numbers belong to which person.

On Thursday, May 19, 2011, at 7pm, Eastern time, we will begin drawing tickets, and we will draw them until the last prize has been awarded.

Winners will be posted to the list and to Facebook, once all the names have been drawn, and i will also post the winners here on my blog.
