Welcome, I am so glad you could join me for this special hop.
The most important thing about this hop is to raise awareness about bone marrow donations to help Leukemia patients.
Bone marrow donation technology has come a long way, and is now as simple as giving blood. So we are trying to raise awareness and get people to register at http://marrow.org to be a bone marrow donor.
Why are we doing this? We want to help a friend and fellow crafter, Liz Decade. Liz is battling 2 different forms of acute Leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant. We are hoping that this hop will help her to find a match.
You can see her story at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Va6RNwYj4BE&list=UUz-JkPSKRldHJNbbEotv8DQ&feature=plcp.
Even if you are not a match for Liz, you can still help her. You see bone marrow registrations drives are expensive, you have to pay for each person who is registered, and Liz is trying to raise money for bone marrow drives and medical expenses (it costs a lot of money to get a transplant).
You can donate to Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All of the money donated WILL go to bone marrow drives or medical expenses.
We have some wonderful sponsors who have donated prizes for our hop.
