In a previous post, I wrote about my homemade thank you notes. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures of them before I mailed them off to the people who generously donated to the Pan Mass. Thankfully, a bunch of people donated to my ride since that post and I just spent the afternoon created new cards and writing messages of thanks to be mailed out tomorrow.
This time I took some pictures of these cards. I think it is pretty impressive what you can do with some craft paper, stamps, markers and stickers.
Again, thank you for all of your generous support. We are closer by the mile in finding a cure for cancer.
When I was younger, writing “thank you cards” after Birthday parties and Christmases was an annual ritual. Both Abby and I were told the importance of this gesture and certainly made aware if we ever forgot to write one in a timely manner. As much as it was a pain when we were younger, I am so happy that my mother was such a stickler back then. Now, I pride myself on my thank you cards. They are sincere and heartful. They get to the point, but include more than “thanks for the gift.” And now… they are homemade.
I spend the last few nights slaving away at my craft desk. I armed myself with glue, craft paper, stamps, decorative whole punches, alphabet stickers and of course, card stock. I cut, measured, stamped, drew and glued together tiny symbols of thanks.
Thanks for support in the Pan Mass. Thanks for hope that is given to cancer patients being treated at the Dana Farber Center. Thanks for the possibility of a cancer free future.
Over the next few days, my PMC supporters will receive these tiny envelops of thanks. I hope that they realize just how much their donations and support mean to me. The memories and emotions that the PMC creates are hard to put into words. I can only hope that people are able to gain a small sense of what I feel, through my emails, conversations and pictures.
So, I say again, thank you to all of my friends and family who have generously donated to the Pan Mass Challenge. I have raised over $2,000 in donations from 24 different people, and I am still counting! I can receive donations through October so it isn’t too late to make yours. [Click to Donate]
