And the Valentine Fairy Rests... THANK YOU!


I delivered the Haiti Jar to Dr. Randle, as well as a quilt for a child in Haiti, and some heart bags for he and his family to enjoy.
 Dear Blog,
Well we can finally say that the 2011 Hearts for Haiti project is over.  I was able to visit Dr. Randle at his office today at St. Marks Hospital.  He showed me a picture of his staff over in Haiti and the clinic they hope to build over there soon.  He said my money will go toward the funds for the clinic that will help people to get better from serious injuries.  

I am part of a club called "Liberty Girls" that learns together about being friendly, brave, and helpful.  There are six of us and we helped make the quilt that Dr. Randle is holding to give to a child over in Haiti.  Thanks for your help fellow Liberty Girls (and especially our leader Adrianne for her help)!  It was fun!

I want to say a HUGE "Thank you" to everyone who bought my heart-shaped bags and also gave me money for Haiti!!!  I was able to put $225.00 in the Haiti Jar after my costs were paid.  Because YOU were so generous... it made me want to be more generous.  I have some friends that have wanted to sell heart bags too... so next year I might want to set this up in different neighborhoods and even in other states, so we can give even more to Healing Hands for Haiti.

THANK YOU AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN!:)

Love, Eliza (a.k.a. The Valentine Fairy)

A LOT of work!!

Dear Blog,

Well my mom and I are starting to recover from all that brownie making over Valentines week and there were some lessons learned!!  First, even though we experimented with recipes ahead of time it took 2 batches before we felt like the brownies were okay to sell.  Being a Baker is a lot of work and very tiring.  With all the mix-ups we made over 600 brownies and it took a lot of time.  There were 2 brownies for every bag, and every brownie took a lot of attention, so it was exhausting!

The good part is that people get excited about helping others.  People want to help Haiti, but also love giving something to someone they love.  This was a lesson I learned last year, and it makes all of this work worth it.

I am trying to set up a time to meet with Dr.Randle and give him the jar and I will take a picture and put it on here when I do.

One of our customers called me "The Valentine Fairy", so that will be my new name because I really like that.

Goodbye, The Valentine Fairy ( Eliza)
