Thanks to everyone for your …
Thanks to everyone for your participation! I am excited to say that collectively we raised $1500 for Art with Heart!! Over the busy distracting holidays, and only through work of mouth and Facebook. Pretty great, I'd say. Thanks to Marcia who signed up to be a fundraising team member as well!

Your efforts in spreading the word; sharing this opportunity via social media; telling friends face to face; convincing folks that Newtown is not lacking for paper snowflakes or dolls or teddy bears; and every dollar donated, will go toward healing these young tender hearts who have endured so much.

The grief workbooks go to print this Friday, and everyone who has donated through the time of this email (Wednesday 1/9 at 11:30 p.m.) will be listed in the actual workbooks being sent to CT, on the Heroes Page. If you haven't yet seen the sample of this let me know and I'll email it to you. Fantastic idea from AwH.

Thanks to everyone. When I started this I just hoped we could help make a dent in the seemingly insurmountable task of sending a grief workbook to every surviving child at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. With your donations and a last-minute surprise deal from the print shop, Art with Heart can afford to print a book for every student, and cover shipping as well without further delay. That is thanks to you.

Follow Art with Heart Seattle (www.artwithheart.com) on Facebook for further updates, or on Twitter @art_with_heart. Thank you so much for helping make this effort a success. I love a team effort!!

Love and hugs,

Good evening! Here's a follo…
Good evening! Here's a follow up today from Steffanie (Founder and Exec Director, Art with Heart) on Facebook:

{"A special thanks to everyone who donated to help put together a customized grief workbook for the kids of Sandy Hook!

Thanks to your support, the costs of printing and shipping the books have been covered! This is Phase I of a two-part outreach, and we are grateful for your caring and loving hearts!" Any additional donations [after next week] will go towards covering Phase II, which will be providing on-site art therapy a few months down the road, probably around April, when PTSD is likely to develop.}

So cool, right? And so exciting! Our total today is $1,315. Amazing. I am so proud of what we have all accomplished together, especially last-minute and over the busy holiday season. Wow.

I'll leave the donation page up through next week in case you know of anyone else who wants to still get in on this. Those later funds will be used towards phase II, the on-site art therapy delivery in the spring -- which is hugely awesome and I am so excited to know about. That delayed PTSD response is a big deal, and I feel good knowing AwH will be addressing it.

Thanks again so much, know Art with Heart is most appreciative, and please let me know if you'd like me to email you the draft of the "Heroes Page" from the book. Art with Heart would like to list your name to recognize you as a friend of this project. Steffanie and Art with Heart want to make sure you are listed accurately - so let me know if I should email over the .pdf for your review before next Wednesday.

You have made such a major difference in a family's life -- and by way of this fundraising event, in my life too.

Thank you for your kindness. :-)
