What is Hope for Haiti

Have you noticed the Hope for Haiti button on the sidebar over there <---------? Well Jenny has put some hard work into Hope for Haiti and I will let her share with you what it is about.

Hi, I'm glad you are here. My name is Jenny Buttler and I own Simply Delightful Designs, a small-ish website and blog design company. I live in Corpus Christi, and I am a mother of three. I created Hope for Haiti very quickly in hopes of spreading hope. I have been a big follower of Compassion.org and have read about missions that other bloggers have taken and have always been so touched.



When I heard about the recent earthquake in Haiti, I cringed. I knew that there were many Americans down there right now volunteering. I lay in bed at night wondering if there was anything that I could do to help, even in a small way and God gave me the idea for Hope for Haiti. It may not be much, and I'm not sure how successful any of this will be - but when you have nothing, a little bit can mean a lot!



All money raised from the raffles on Hope for Haiti will be donated to two organizations - The American Red Cross and Compassion.org. These are two organizations that are very close to my heart and I hope that you can and will take part in what I hope will be a very exciting and heart-warming fundraiser.


I have been getting items and/or services donated, and each item will be listed individually on Hope for Haiti. To purchase a raffle ticket, simply click the link at the end of the raffle description. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please email jenny@simplydelightfuldesigns.com or leave a comment anywhere on Hope for Haiti and I will get it.
Thank you Jenny for your hard work! We have donated a $75 Gift Certificate for Cap Creations to Hope for Haiti.
Please visit Hope for Haiti today and go buy some raffel tickets to spread hope!

Money saving tip.

Mason Jars are great to have on hand. They make great inexpensive vases for centrepieces. Flowers from the supermarket are also fairly inexpensive. Just get some bouquets split them up and place a few stems in each mason jar and you have an instant centerpiece. And if you like, tie ribbon or raffia around the neck for an extra touch. These centerpieces work well for many parties. We have used them for baby and bridal showers, retirement party, in memory of party and more. You can say that we have definitely gotten our money's worth from our Mason Jars. About 10 bucks for a case of 12 and when you are done just clean and dry and place back in the cardboard case to store for next time.
