Swimming for Katie Blog Hop & Fundraiser

I know that there are many fund raisers out there, but I feel that this one is for an amazing cause

Today I have a special blog hop for you and I hope you will swim along with us to help out Katie and her family! Please read on for Katie's story...

From October 10-12, stampers are joining together to support and encourage our friend and fellow stamper, Katie Renz, who is currently battling inoperable gastric cancer.  If you're not familiar with her, Katie’s cancer story started just before Christmas last year.  This young, beautiful, healthy, vibrant mother of 3 with her infectious smile was suddenly diagnosed with an inoperable cancer, virtually overnight.  A few tummy aches and then stage 4 gastric cancer.  Her first post about it is here.  The idea of “Swimming for Katie” came from her recent post here.

Information central is HERE.

Here are all of the items for sale - 100% of the profits go to help Katie and her family.  

I hope you will join me in supporting Katie through a purchase or donation.  The following is a list of everyone who has projects posted today.
