Startin' Early for Orphaned No More!!!!!!!!!

Okay ladies!...and gentlemen....if there are any of you floating around! ;P  I know I said Sew Crafty Saturday would start on the first of the year, but I recently discovered Orphaned No More.  Daleea has launched a 3000 bracelet campaign to bring her precious Isabella home...she needs to sell 3000 bracelets to bring her daughter home.  I was so touched I knew I had to do something to help!  I am actually crying as I write this...and really...if ya know me...I don't cry!  But look at this beautiful little girl!  It breaks my heart that she is alone half a world away from a family that desparetly wants to hold her in their arms.

3,000 Bracelets Campaign
"this is an opportunity for everyone to change the life of a precious child.... to minister to an orphan.... to help her family one day hold her in their arms and tell her that she is orphaned no more... she belongs to them.... to her family.

And you will get something sweet, sassy and fun in return...."
You can read more about Daleea, Isabella, and their family here and you can read more about the campaign here.
I contacted Daleea today and told her I would like to feature her blog when I started my linky party to try to help get the word out, she told me that she would love to be featured and what a blessing it would be because she will be leaving on January 14th to get Isabella and they are still $4000 short of their goal....hence the starting early!

Note:  Once you have posted the button or written a post etc. you will contiue to be eligible each week for the giveaway just drop by and post another comment (leave me a comment for each entry)  And if you wrote a post about it maybe just add a little reminder with a link to the older post in one of your new posts. This isn't neccasary but it would be nice.
