Laytons legacy card drive & fund raiser

  • Happy Saturday,


  • 1. DONATE! - directly to Layton's Legacy YouCaring Fundraiser. For every $5 donated, you will be entered into the drawing for one of the prizes above!! All winners will be drawn from donations made thru the YouCaring Site. **Prizes will be drawn and announced here on my blog on Saturday, May 19th.**

    2. SHARE! - I know that not everyone is able to donate, but sharing about the fundraiser gives it more visibility! Please feel free to share the YouCaring Link or this post on all your social media outlets!


    3. CREATE! - this is also a card drive, and if you'd like to create a card using the theme/moodboard below, I would love that! I will be including these handmade treasures with the giftcards when I hand them over to the NICU social worker, and my dream is that the NICU will be covered in beautiful creations inspired by Layton!! Link them up HERE, and then please email me (lea@lealawsoncreates.com) to get the address for sending - and note that I will need them to arrive by May 31st.


    HOW TO STAY UPDATED:
    There are two ways to stay updated on the fundraising progress, and to see photos as I drop items off at the NICU.
    1. Subscribe to the Lea Lawson Creates blog via email using the prompt in the upper right corner - then you will get email notifications when I add a new post.
    2. Follow Lea Lawson Creates on Instagram. I will add photos & videos to my IG Stories, and likely go LIVE a few times throughout the fundraising effort and as we drop everything off at the NICU!
    Anything you can do can help a mom or dad thrust into NICU life feel like someone out there cares about them as they go through a time that is very scary and very hard. THANK YOU from the very bottom of my heart for helping me do this!

    BLOG HOP
    Not only is this a fundraiser, but also a super inspiring blog hop with MANY stops along the way! As you hop along, you will see amazing cards created with a very special theme. I created this moodboard when we started planning Layton's nursery, and it is my very heart poured into a graphic. We have also chosen to go with encouraging sentiments, in hopes that the NICU parents that receive these cards will feel uplifted, even if only for a moment.



  • WAYS YOU CAN HELP:


  • I am hoping to make a few more cards to send this weekend, but this is the first I used Amy Tangerine from American crafts and pieced everything from the 6 X 6 cardstock the colors are just perfect for the challenge
 The cause is very near and dear to my heart. A few years ago my grand nephew Stanley James was born with a heart problem After three heart surgeries, he was such a fighter and we thought he was gonna make it. He stole my heart he was in the NICU at Henry Ford Hospital in MI and when his little body could not make it and he passed away at 8 weeks I wept. I can't even imagine how hard it was for the parents
