Hearts For Hannah

Each year at this time I donate in memory of Hannah Congdon to Joining Hearts and Hands, a non-profit educational organization. Hannah and four of her friends died together in a tragic car accident shortly after graduating high school in 2007. They were each young women with promising futures.

I want to help remember Hannah and her 4 friends by selling specially made glass hearts and donating all proceeds to Joining Hearts and Hands in her memory. Last year we raised $820.00. This year my goal is to reach $1000.00 by the end of June. Every few days I will post glass hearts that are currently available here on my blog. You will see a special link to the right that says Hearts for Hannah.  You can email me to let me know which one you would like. Each is specially priced at $20.00. If these are to be mailed, there is a small shipping cost.

My husband and I have been supporters of Joining Hearts and Hands since its beginning in 2004. Please take a moment to read about Dr. William Cala and his wife Joanne and how this organization benefits the orphans in Kenya and their communities.

Those hearts are gorgeous!

Being a local reader, I can attest to what good people the Calas are.

Nice, Linda!
