I Need Your Help, Girls!!!

***An Update!!  First of all I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and concern for Lizzy!! ThanK YOU!!!!! So many of you have emailed your donation ideas. Each of you is AMazInG!!!


The deadline for these items is May 1st, 2011. Thank you so much!!!


Hello, to my wonderful Blogging friends!! I love and appreciate each one of you. Your support and friendship has changed my life. That is why I thought of coming here today...to ask you a favor....

Two weeks ago our dear friends the Smiths...their daughter was in our home and suffered a major stroke. Yes, you read that right...a STROKE at age 11!!!

Lizzie is currently undergoing rehabilitation at Children's Mercy Hospital in Kansas City, Missouri. She is paralyzed on her right side {although she does have some movement now} and her speech has been deeply affected. One-third of her brain was damaged.

My friend Kristin and I are putting together a fund-raiser for her to help with expenses. We all know how expensive health care can be.

What I am would love from you is something handmade we can auction off at the fundraiser. I know so many of you are talented!!!

Anything would be appreciated...a knitted scarf, a mixed media piece, something you've sewed, a framed photograph...you get the idea. Anything you would want to donate would be so appreciated!!!

If you would love to help out in this way please email me at 

leslieackman@yahoo.com


I appreciate you so much:)

  5. I have to add this, in honor of Lizzy. She spells her name with a y. I always get a giggle on how adamant she is about it. This is an awesome idea. What is the deadline?

  6. Hi Leslie, I'm passing on this information on my blog also with a link to here. I also want to contribute something for the auction, I will e-mail you for details. Maybe posting the deadline will help other readers know your time frame for the auction. My thoughts and prayers are with Lizzy and her family.

  9. How about a whole crafty package of scrapbook supplies? Would that work for an auction? I'll email you later when I get home, but I can put together a pretty nice package and donate to the cause, most definitely!!!!
