Happy Valentine’s Day! THANK YOU so much to everyone who participated in the 2nd Annual Valentine’s Day Cards For A Cause! Whether you purchased a card, told a friend about it, or shared on social media, it is with your help that we were able to raise as many meals as we did!
So what is the final count? As of today, we have raised…
for the babies and toddlers at
The Ebongalethu Educare Center Preschool + Nursery in South Africa!
This provides meals for the 60 children for 6 months!
I am hoping to get some photos of the kiddos and school soon to share with you.
Many cards were made but the most that were crafted were the Long Distance Love card for those of you with sweeties far away but close to your heart!
These cards raised hundreds of meals,
and featured 42 states…
…and 24 countries! It also helped me brush up on my non existent geography skills :)
We also had a super fun Valentine’s Day DIY Workshop + Pop Up Shop Event at Leanna Lin’s Wonderland with the lovely ladies of PaperFox LA! We colored in and decorated cards and envelopes for moms, dads, and grandparents and raised over 150 meals!
Thank you for making this Valentine’s Day mean so much more, and spreading the love to your friends and families
as well as children in South Africa!
PS: These cards will remain available in the Etsy shop and for every one sold, they will continue to benefit The EEC! If you’d like to contribute to the cause, please send me an email, hi.atiliay (at) gmail.com, and I will give you directions on how you can raise more meals!
