Welcome to the Crafty Friends Who Care blog hop. We are so glad you could join us for Day 2 of this very special hop. We have more fabulous projects for you. But the most important thing about this is to raise awareness about bone marrow donations to help Leukemia patients.

Bone marrow donation technology has come a long way, and is now as simple as giving blood. So we are trying to raise awareness and get people to register at http://marrow.org to be a bone marrow donor. And why are we doing this your might ask? To help a friend a fellow crafter, Liz Decade. Liz is battling 2 different forms of acute Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that this hop will help her to find a match. You can see her story at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va6RNwYj4BE&list=UUz-JkPSKRldHJNbbEotv8DQ&feature=plcp.

Even if you are not a match for Liz, you can still help her. You see bone marrow registrations drives are expensive, you have to pay for each person who is registered, and Liz is trying to raise money for bone marrow drives and medical expenses (it costs a lot of money to get a transplant). You can donate to Liz at lizquesada.leukemia@gmail.com. All of the money donated will go to bone marrow drives or medical expenses.

And we have some wonderful sponsors who have donated prizes for our hop.
Sweet Stamping Treats Digital Stamps, Trendy Twine, MB Treasurista, Paper Piecings by Nikki, Inspired Stamps, My Pink Stamper, Peachy Keen Stamps and Market Street Stamps have all donated prizes to this hop. In order to be eligible for one of these prizes you must comment on every blog in this hop! There are other requirements for the sponsors so please see Liz's blog post for more details.

If you are coming from Carla - http://racincrafts.blogspot.com/ blog you are on the right track. If you want to start from the beginning please go to Liz's blog (http://decadeofscrap.blogspot.com).

  Here is my project for this hop:



I altered this balsa wood box for a friend of mine, as she needed a container to keep her meds in, but she did not want it to look like a pill container, so I covered the box with Graphic 45 Bonticella papers and she loved butterfly's, so I fussy cut the ones from the paper! : )  I also mod podged the box, which made it stronger, so she could put it in her purse. 

Thank you for stopping by and don’t forget to go to marrow.org and find out how to become a marrow donor. Your next stop is Beckie's blog at http://justbcreativecrazy.blogspot.com
