Spread the Love Blog Hop for Jaimie

This is the "Spread the love blog hop for Jaimie". If you arrived here from Laura Campbell's blog you're on the right track. If you're just starting, hop over to Katharina so you don't miss anything!

A little about Jaimie and why we're doing this...
"On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."

Our hope is that everyone hopping around today will stop for a moment and think about Jaimie and her father and what life must be like for them now. One moment in time has changed their lives forever. We are asking that everyone reading this message please take a moment to make a card and send it off to Jaimie. You can make something very simple or much more involved, but please share some words of hope and love and let her know that people do care and want the best for her. Please send your card to the address below:

Jaimie Cates
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057

This card will be on it's way to Jaimie. I think the sentiment stamp fits where this special young lady is in her life right now. She needs to know that the Lord has a plan for her, that's why she's still here. She must be a very special young lady.
There is a blog set up for this occasion and it has more information about Jaimie and our sponsors for this hop. Be sure to stop by and get entered for some of the prizes they've graciously donated. Here's the link.

Thanks for taking the time to help us help Jaimie! Your next stop on this love hop is Katie Cotton and you are in a for a treat! She's super talented!

Challenges this card is also for:
Midnight Madness-sketch
Just Magnolia-monochromatic
