Art Hearts for Haiti - You ROCK!!!

9:13 AM





The call went out and you've responded in a HUGE way - we have finished up with
115 hearts*!!!

Once again, let me say to each of you Thank YOU - you humble me with your generosity of time and your willingness to get involved. The blogosphere is made up of just the nicest folks in the world!

Now we move into Phase II - which is get the gallery launched. This should happen on Tuesday. I'll take today to get the hearts up and organized. Once the gallery is launched, I will start working on the collaged art with all the hearts. 

*If you've sent in a heart and have not received an email back from me, please email me again, as we've had a couple of instances where I did not receive the hearts.   

Again thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!

Switching gears for just a moment (but still related to Haiti's rescue):

I received an email late last week about another Art Heart Initiative going on.....two pint-sized philanthropists have sent out a call to their local schools asking students and parents (and now the internet) to make hearts and mail them to a post office box. Their goal is 1000 hearts! These two young ladies, Emma and Kate, along with mom, Linda, will be scanning the hearts, posting it on their web site and then sending it to the children in Haiti. Their web site can be found here with more information.

Please check it out and if you have time, send them a heart or two for their initiative!

  1. GREAT job on these hearts Laure.

    I love seeing your new photo on here.

    I know what you mean about spam I had to do the same on all my blogs. So irritating but unfortunately necessary.

  4. Hi Laure:
    Thank you so much for posting Kate and Emma's Art Heart project information. They made the front page of the local paper yesterday: http://www.sentinelandenterprise.com/ci_14306120?IADID=Search-www.sentinelandenterprise.com-www.sentinelandenterprise.com

    We are implementing phase 2 of the project this week in which people can purchase a heart template to make their heart or order a tshirt imprinted with a heart design...with proceeds going to the children who are suffering. Thanks again for your support.

  5. Hi Laure,
    I don't think I got an email from you when I sent my final kitty heart. Maybe you didn't get it? Let me know and I'll send it again. What an amazing response! I know you are super busy---wish we could help with this phase.

    I really like your new profile pic---lovely ; )!
