Designer in Need - Charity Collab

I am so sad for Tish, she lost her kitty, then lost her dog and her entire house. This tragedy that happened to her is unbelievable.

On November 5, Leticia of Pixiemama Designs house was burned down. Her entire house and all of her stuff. Luckily, she and her just turned 4-yr-old son and husband were visiting family while their house burned to the ground. It is believed that this was caused by a problem with the furnace. If Tish, her son, and her husband had been home, they likely would not have made it out of the home. I am so so so glad that they are okay. But, the sad part, they lost their dog. Their cats ran away, but the dog didnt. Tish recently lost her cat to a rare disease was really heart-broken.

Prior to all of this she had set up a charity kit to raise money for the SPCA. It is called Goodbye is not Forever. I had the honor of working with her kit. I made 2 pages of my cats who have passed away.

The kit and matching glitters are selling for $3.50 each, and $2 of the proceeds of each sale will be donated to the SPCA International, to help animals get out of abusive situations or find homes that they desperately need. The kit includes 12 papers and over 30 elements, and is dedicated to her loving little Otis.

Scrappity-Doo-Dah is in the process of collecting kits to make a mega collab called Country Christmas where all the proceeds will go to Tish and her family to help them replace some of what they have lost. If you are a designer and you are interested in participating in this charity collaboration please contact Tiffany at tiffany at inspiredbydominic dot com or contact Yvonne, Heather Manning at SDD.

I have seen the kits as they have come in and they are beautiful. I am currently making quick pages and brag book pages to contribute to the collab. It will be released shortly. I will post when it is released to point you in the direction where you can purchase it.

If you want to do something to help and you are not a designer please consider purchasing one of Tish’s many fabulous items in her store at Scrappity-Doo-Dah. I assure you that you will get a fantastic product and you will also be helping out a family in need.
