Help One Classroom and Enjoy Three Exclusive Digis on Me...

 

Have an extra $5 to spare? 
I have some extra artwork to spare for you:)...

I have been wanting to funnel some of my time and energy into a solid charity that aids people in poverty.  As my own excess continues to be something I confront daily...battling the desires to just be another American consumer is hard, honestly... I wanted to find a way to meaningfully impact a people or even a single life in a loving, beneficial way. 

I have been following Help One Now for months.  I love everything about this organization.  It feels small and deliberate~ not a massive charity where it is hard to see your money actually making the impact you imagined it could.  The projects are manageable in size, but they build upon one another, transforming communities, lives, and hearts. 

Their newest campaign is called Help One Classroom
That is my goal. 
One classroom in Haiti.
One teacher's salary and supplies for one school year.
It is $2500 dollars. 

Can you help me?

If you have the five dollars to spare, I have three exclusive digis for you:).
Here is how this works~
PLEASE read carefully:)...

Donate at least $5 here.
It goes directly to Help One Now for a specific classroom.  
**After you donate, please forward me a receipt of your donation at krista7smith@yahoo.com**
Title the subject HELP ONE NOW .
I will reply with your three free digis. 

The digis will NEVER be available for sale in my shop or as rubber.
Once the $2500 goal is met, they are scrapped forev's.

I'm excited when the crafty world gets together for change. 
It is a good thing~ when your hobbies and talents have a lasting impact in the world.

I look forward to lots of emails over the next couple days!:)
Feel free to spread the word!

    3. I too would like to donate but will only do it through paypal. It would be great if we could send the money to you, we pay any paypal fee & then you make the bulk donation. If this works for you email me your paypal details & I will send money immediately. My email is jlambert@adam.com.au
      Thanks hoping you can do it as I LOVE your images.

  39. Hi Krista. I would love to donate as well but like some others don't feel comfortable unless it's thru Pay Pal. I was thinking what if those of us who want to send our $5. that way or who are having problems with their website were to send the money to your Pay Pal account and then you could get one large amount to them?
    You are so generous and such a sweet person!

  66. Living here in Colorado, we experience the need to spread the love often (fires, floods, snow storms!)... so I thought that it was divine intervention when I was pointed to your site yesterday. I had come across one of your digis and fallen completely in love! It is a pleasure and a privilege to donate to such a worthy cause! Bless you!!
