God grant you the light in Christmas, which is faith;
the warmth of Christmas, which is love;
the radiance of Christmas, which is purity;
the righteousness of Christmas, which is justice;
the belief in Christmas, which is truth;
& all of Christmas, which is Christ.

A Good Cause

There are no women in my family who have or have had breast cancer, but I have quite a few blogging friends who have had breast cancer enter their lives.  Gaynor at Stitchers Anon is one of them. 

Gaynor works hard to raise money for breast cancer research.  She is now working toward a goal of raising 500 euros by the end of this month. For every euro you donate (one euro equals roughly $1.26), you will be given a "raffle ticket" for a chance to win a marvelous prize!  The current list of prizes can be viewed by clicking here.  

I am donating two prizes.  First, this Christmas ornament ... BBD's Noel ... stitched by me & finished by the talented Myra.
My second donation is this Yiota's X Stitch kit ... Country Cottage with a Snowman.  The kit is sealed & includes chart, all threads, & evenweave fabric. 
If you'd like to donate a euro or two via PayPal to help Gaynor reach her goal by October 31st, click on the link below.         


Many thanks   : )
