GinaK Special

I'm going to go outside of my normal comfort zone and tell you what I think about Gina K. and her store, Stamping Freak. I think everyone has heard of GinaK by now, but if you haven't please check out her webstore, (is that a real word yet??)

Gina K is one of the most giving people I have ever "met" (okay, we've just met online!) She is donating 10% of purchases today to the September 11, 2001 Children's Fund. She even has some specials listed for today only! (ahh-hummm, those scallop oval doodles are pretty cool so I finally bought the set today!)

It amazes me that she can and is donating on top of donating! What do I mean? She is donating $7-8 from each set of Stamps for a Cause (to their respective causes) then another 10% t0 the Children's Fund. As I was mulling all this over (and surfing her webstore for what I couldn't live without and could justify to DH) the Scripture kept running through my head, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13.) In our present day here in America unless you are serving in the military or in a profession such as police or fireman you probably aren't in a position to drastically lay down your life on a regular basis. I believe that Gina has found a way to lay down her life, that is her financial life for others. Yes, she is selflessly giving more to help others in need. Please check out her store and help her make even more of a difference today!

Thank you Gina for all that you do!

I am going to try to find something special to do today to commemorate 9-11 in my own special way. Perhaps I can go through that box of cards that I have "on stand-by" that I never seem to use because I have to make something fresh and new for whatever it is that I need a card for, and send out some RAKs. They won't know it today, but in a few days I will (hopefully) have brightened someone's day!
