To hear you say "This one's mine"....my heart is spoken for....

I wanted to let you guys know that My Favorite Things is having a very special sale for a very special cause. It runs today through Friday and Kim is offering 10% off all stamps when you use the coupon code TISH.

Here is the message from Kim (MFT’s owner):

A few months ago, I posted about a friend, Tish, who’d been diagnosed with a very rare form of ovarian cancer. Tish battled through 6 rounds of chemo only to discover two additional tumors, one on her spine and one in her stomach. My heart fell when I read her CaringBridge post which broke the news. Since her diagnosis last August, the family has held the motto of DRIVE ON! in dealing with this aggressive cancer and fought a valiant fight.

Tish lost her battle early Tuesday morning, and I found out about it late last night. Tish leaves behind two beautiful, young sons and a hubby, Todd, who I worked with for several years in my past life. I know Todd much better than I knew Tish, and know just how difficult this has been and will continue to be for the immediate future. Prior to Tish passing, a benefit was planned to help the family recover from the mounting medical bills and ensure a bright future for the boys, Tucker and Tanner. The benefit is still underway, but with a more solemn feel. My husband and I are donating some items to a silent auction, and this is a picture of the gift card holder for that auction. The content of the gift card is about $200 in MFT merchandise, and I know every little bit helps. But I want to do more.

Todd was the most compassionate, tender-hearted *boss* I’ve ever had, and I want more than anything to really help this family.

So what I’ve decided to do is two-fold: 1) Starting Tuesday, I am offering a 10% discount on ALL stamps on the site. Use the coupon code Tish at checkout to receive 10% off all all the stamps in your shopping cart. (It won’t discount your other merchandise, just stamps.) The coupon code will run from Tuesday, April 15th-Friday, April 18th. 2) I will donate 10% of ALL proceeds (including money spent on other items on the site) to the family at their April 26th benefit.

FYI***The discount is only for retail customers***

I am making it my goal to personally make the payments on the FL College Pre-Paid plan for the boys during an entire year which will be about $1200. Please help me reach this goal.

What a sad and tragic story! I had read about Tish on Kim's blog ... or somewhere, maybe SCS ... and she was requesting cards to be sent Tish's way. I was really touched by her story, and sent a little something to her.

I'm so sorry to learn that she lost her battle ... how devastating for her family and children.

Kim is so generous and kind-hearted to be doing this. I gotta say, there's some awesome imaginary stampin' friends out there, isn't there?

~Hugs, Deb
