View Full Version : RAK for ill member

04-14-2009, 09:18 AM
Hi everyone,

One of our long-time members is battling a very serious illness. She has not posted publicaly about it, so out of respect for her I will not say who it is.

However, I would like to send her a "Get well" RAK package from the community.

If you are willing to send something, you can send it to me (PM me for my address). If you clearly mark RAK on the outside of the package/envelope, then I will not open it but will box everything up and send them all on directly to her.

I would like to send this out by the end of April, so please send me things soon if you would like to be included.

Cards and Themes she is collecting: butterflies, flowers (especially sunflowers), hearts, animals (cats & dogs), teddy bears, angels, snowmen
She likes inchies and has a few chunky books, including trees and hearts.

I really, really hope that many of you will find it in your hearts to send something to her.

04-14-2009, 09:20 AM

04-14-2009, 09:26 AM
I'd like to send something, but a hint on a theme or color would be nice. Otherwise I guess something flowers would be an appropriate RAK?

04-14-2009, 09:53 AM
Count me in. Will check back for theme ideas, but Katie's flowers sounds good to me too.
