Hearts for Haiti

The devestation in Haiti is heartbreaking, and Close To My Heart wants to help ease the suffering. During the month of February, our 12" x 12" textured cardstock combo packs are buy one, get one FREE -- and with every offer purchased, CTMH will donate $2 to Operation Smile's Haiti relief efforts.

You might be wondering what $2 could possibly buy. Here are a few items:

» Collapsible water containers ($2 per container): Each container holds 10 liters amount of water and is especially useful for kids carrying water for long distances to ensure that all their water doesn't spill en route from their water supply. It is also very useful for storing clean, safe water for everyday use.

» Water purification tablets (60 cents for 50 tablets): Each tablet is able to turn 4-5 liters of dirty water into water suitable for drinking. Every day, 4,000 children worldwide die because they do not have access to clean water, according to UNICEF.

» High energy/protein biscuits ($1 per pack): These contain minerals and vitamins and have been developed for malnourished children during emergencies.

» Oral rehydration salts (7 cents for one package): This solution, containing sugar and salt, treats children suffering from dehydration caused by diarrhea. Approximately 3,500 children die each day from dehydration caused by acute diarrhea, according to UNICEF.

(Many thanks to CTMH consultant Amy Hervey for sharing this information!)

The Hearts for Haiti campaign is definitely a win-win for all involved! You get a great deal on our wonderful textured cardstock, and the suffering people of Haiti receive much-needed assistance. Visit my website February 1 - 28 to stock up!
