Valentine Exchange


Valentine's Day is just around the corner. I would love to organize a Pink Valentine Exchange in honor of Deena, of "Can I Be Pretty In Pink?" If you don't know Deena, she is a cancer survivor, still fighting the effects of her illness. She couldn't organize her Christmas ornament exchange this year, so I would like to do this one for her.
The rules are simple:
1. Leave your name here if you would like to participate.
2. Create a pink valentine to be exchanged with another person who has signed up. this can be any media of your choice!
3. E-mail me your address. laurienuske@yahoo.com
4. On February 1st, I will assign your exchange partner, and you will mail that person your Valentine.
6. You don't need to have a blog to participate in this exchange.
7. Be Creative! Mail a Valentine you yourself would like to receive!
8. Please mail out by February 7th to insure your Valentine reaches your partner before the 14th.
9. Please! Only join in if you are sure you can fulfill the obligation to your partner!!

That's it! You can sign up at any time between now and February 1st. There is also a link on my side bar, to bring you back to this post. If you would like to help spread the word, please feel free to post the link on your blog!! And say a special prayer for Deena, O.K.?

I hope I'm on the right link, Laurie. Of course I want to participate. I'm sure Deena will love this. Diane (if you need anything else to sign me up just let me know.)

Count me in! I have followed Deena for some time and love her and this is so kind of you to do!!! I'm originally from Michigan as well (Battle Creek) so us Mid-Westerners, former and present, need to stick together. Will email my information.

Happy New Year!

That's great m_mclatchy@att.net. My name's Elizabeth. I had a friend who recently shaved her head in honor of her friend and raised money for the cause. What a proactive friend. I'd love to help.
