Hope for Lily charity collab

Good morning everyone,

I have some special news for you today, I participated in making a collab for a new charity organisation, called OSAi (One Step Away international), an organisation that helps women in need. Please visit the site to learn more about their good work!!
And please visit the OSA facebookpage and 'like' them! For a flying start they need your support!

This is the story:
A great group of designers made a collab to help a lovely woman in Romania, who is facing homelessness and several other problems. We call her Lily, and we made this collab to support her and help her financially. The money from sale of the kit will go to One Step Away International, a US-based nonprofit organization. OSAi provides financial assistance to older single women in crises situations like homelessness.

Earlier in 2012, Lily was being taken to court for backpayment of utilities and was told that at the end of May she would have to move. She's been trying to find steady work that will support her for 4 years and has been living on what she can get here and there. She was in despair and without hope.

Now, with the help of OSAi, Lily's utilities are paid. The suit has been dropped. She has found an apartment for which OSAi gave her the deposit. She is also getting necessary dental work, additional job training to enable her to get a job which will support her, and monthly assistance until she has that job. The best part is that Lily now has hope for the future. For Lily and all those other women in need!
Thanks a ton!

Designers who provided their time and creativity to this kit: Berna of Studio Berna/Dutch Designs, Hollie of Holliewood Studios, Sharon of Art for Scrapbooking, Maaike of Find your Bliss designs, Kim of Kimeric Designs, Kitty of Kitty Designs, Susan of Raspberry Road Designs, Julie of Sherwood Studio, Susan of Evoke x slgr, and Jeanine of Page.One


Are you curious what you'll find in the kit?
Well, there's 160 (!) elements waiting to find their way to your LO's, 65 papers and an alpha want to be there also. All made using the vibrant colors of Romania. Take a look:
