Spread the Love Blog Hop

Starving Artistamps will be sponsoring and participating in a special blog hop Monday November 2nd organized by Denise (owner of Whimsy stamps) and Erin Bailey (co-founder of the Stamp Something challenge blog)

After being touched by a tragedy that recently took place in a neighboring New Hampshire town. Denise and Erin have decided to make a difference and set up a Spread the Love Blog Hop with the hopes to cheer up an 11 year old little girl who was the victim of a random and violent crime:

On October 4th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home were a mother and her 11 year old daughter were sleeping. 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.

This is what Erin and Denise hope to accomplish by organizing this event:

"We want her to be showered with cards from around the world in an effort to restore hope to this young girl’s life. We’re also encouraging anyone who participates in the hop to mail a card to Jaimie and/or anyone they know who has been a victim of random violence."

So mark your calenders for 10 am EST November 2nd, 2009. There will be giveaways and a huge list of hop sites with piles and piles of cards to ogle!

Denise and Erin have set up a dedicated blog for the hop and will posting information as it becomes available. The blog is temporarily unavailable but will be set up by hop time on monday.
