I am so excited to be a part of Small Hands Creating Hope, a collaborative book and exciting fundraiser for the American Cancer Society, put together by an incredibly talented group of bloggers. Each blogger contributed a kid-friendly craft idea or tutorial that could be made by or for someone facing cancer. Most of the crafts revolve around the themes of sunshine, butterflies, and HOPE.
The kids and I created and shared a Butterfly Cookie Cutter Stamped Card that would be perfect to send with a caring note to a cancer patient or survivor.
You can receive the eBook with tons more creative ideas for just a minimum donation of $15 to the American Cancer Society. An email with the download link (as well as a second link that allows you to purchase a hard copy of the book at production cost) will be sent once we receive your donation. This button will take you directly to the American Cancer Society’s donation page:
If you donate but do not receive this email for any reason, or if you have trouble with the download, email smallhandsproject at gmail dot com.
MaryAnne at Mama Smiles compiled this book as a way of celebrating thirty years of cancer survivorship! Our goal is to raise $3000 by July 4th. A blog hop of participants will run from May 14th until July 4th to celebrate and raise funds so that, in the future, thirty years of cancer survivorship will be the norm, not the exception! Learn about each of the bloggers and their contribution to the book by visiting them on their assigned dates – a few bloggers will be running celebratory giveaways, too!

Your card looks fantastic – and I love that the kids can do it (almost) all by themselves, and from a very young age. Thanks so much for participating in this project!!!
And thank you for linking up to Learning Laboratory at Mama Smiles =)
What a lovely craft for a beautiful project!
