Hello there!! I'm here to share the details of an upcoming hop sponsored by LOTS of your favorite companies to benefit a super lady who needs some support right now, our own Design Team Coordinator...fabulous Julie Ranae.
Many may know that a few weeks ago, Julie Ranae had to have emergency oral surgery resulting in the removal of her two front teeth. The dentist at that time believed the best course of action would be to remove the rest of her teeth and replace them with permanents. Relieved at finding a solution to her major dental problem .. she visited the office for dental surgery. Unfortunately, it wasn't the visit she was expecting. After the consultation and scheduling the surgery, the surgeon's office informed her that she would need to bring $4000 back to the appointment with her and they would proceed. This amount would not include the 'dentures' she would need as well.
Here Julie is today, sitting without front teeth that were pulled with the belief that they would be replaced immediately. This has been an overwhelming experience for our dear friend and one that I hope our creative community can help with.
Join us beginning October 7th for a blog hop to benefit Julie called 'Operation Julie's Smile'. There are a variety of companies and design teams who will be participating in this hop to help raise funds for this benefit including Lil' Inker Designs.
So far, nearly $500 in prizes have been donated by the participating companies and we expect this will only increase as our hop date draws near! Both participants and those who donate will be eligible to win the fabulous prizes.
Operation Julie's Smile is now accepting designers/teams who would like to be a part of the benefit hop. If you are interested in getting involved in this creative fundraising event, please contact Nicole Rixon at firstname.lastname@example.org The deadline to be
a part of the hop is Wednesday, Sept 28th.

See you starting October 7th and thank you in advance for your support!
