Biggest RAK ever.

That's what I am up to right now. I will be putting together a HUGE rak. And one of you are going to get it.

WHY?
I have a friend, Lois. She is 40 years old and have cancer. She is in pain and needs positive, uplifting people to remind her continually to live and that life is worth living. She has an amazing husband and four beautiful kids. The doctors are not giving her long to live, but I believe that God is the author of life. And I know you believe that too.

WHAT?
If you want to be entered into this awesome draw (and if anyone want to contribute prizes, big or small, please email me) then this is what you are going to do: take 10 minutes of your time and create a card for Lois. A card that speaks of life and laughter, of fun and flowers. A word of encouragement, maybe your favorite scripture. Take a picture of it and upload it HERE for all to see. Then you post it to her. I visit her every day and I will make a list of all the cards she gets and I will let her draw names out of a hat for winners. The deadline for all the cards to reach her in Canada is March 20th. So, if you want to play (and I hope every single person that reads this will) make her a card, and post it. THAT's how simple it will be.

Please email me: wilna71@gmail.com if you want to participate. I will email you her address. Those who are willing to add this little he{ART} flower to your blog to help me get the word out, will be in my good books for life. You can just right click the image and save it to your computer and add it to a side bar. Please link THIS post to it.

I am going to drive you nuts. I love this girl with all my heart. I just want the best for her. AND I KNOW AMAZING PEOPLE like you, who can contribute to her life. I am calling all my friends from America, Australia, Poland, Holland, Canada, India and SOUTH AFRICA and the whole world to play. Most of all I hope that you would do it to give back. To remember that you have something to be grateful for. Come on girls, email me. Make those cards. Imagine her smile and tears and amazement that people care. Imagine that. I will report it all back to you. I promise.

I have not said a word to her. It's for you to surprise her.
PLEASE say yes!
Love
Wilna

I am not much of a card maker, but I needed a project for tonight, when I am scrapping with my friend, so I'll haul out the big guns and try to make something nice for your friend.

My cousin Mike has cancer (father of 7 children) also and is hoping to finally be able to get the stem cell transplant he is waiting for from his big brother. If you would pray for him also, Wilna, I would appreciate it!

I'd love to do something for her. I'm not much of a card maker either - but a canver fighter speaks to me. My son had cancer at 3 and is now 7 and three years cancer free. I love to do anything I can to help someone else in any way!!

I'm doing this.

I did this for my mom when she had cancer. I had a speech class in college. Everyone in one of my classes made my mom a handmade card after my speech. It was so touching. My mom loved it.

This is wonderful for you to do for your friend.

Lisa said...

I just emailed you for the address. I would love to send her a card. Your post so touched me. It is very wonderful of you to organize something like this for a friend.

Hi Wilna,
I'm ON IT! And I will request prayer for Lois with my friends in the Order of Ecumenical Franciscans. Folks from literally around the world (400+) will be praying on her behalf on a daily basis.

You are an amazing friend...may God bless you abundantly for your kindness!

Hugs,
Paula Clare
