Well, we did it! We had only 4 days to market my Hearts for Haiti bags but we sold well over 200 bags which was our goal! Many thanks to Smart Cookie who made delicious cookies to put into the bags. I LOVE creating Valentines for people to give to people they love. Even though it is really hard work for a couple of days, it just seems to have reward after reward. Now I am getting all the money together and I will put it in my "Haiti Jar" that I bought for this year. Hopefully in the next two days I can take the jar to Dr. Randle and he can give me an update on Healing Hands for Haiti. I know that we could raise so much more money than we do, so I will be thinking this next year about how to do that. We will definitely need help because my mom and I are tired after making and delivering so many many bags... over 400 cookies!! Thanks to everyone who supported us!
Love, The Valentines Fairy ( a.k.a. Eliza)

It took longer than we thought, but Smart Cookie ( of Utah) is giving us a discount on a variety of cookies to put in our bags this year! We (mostly my mom) are very happy that professionals will be doing the baking. The flavor choices are: Mint Chocolate Fudge, White Chocolate Fudge and Double Chocolate Fudge. There will be two cookies in each bag along with a couple of chocolates and my signature sparkle heart stick! Each bag will have a tag that says "100% of profits go to Healing Hands for Haiti". It feels really nice to think about people giving their loved ones a tasty Valentine and helping Dr. Randle build his clinics for people that have lost limbs in Haiti. All orders have to be in by Wednesday, February 8th so we can pass on order numbers to Smart Cookie! Oh! and we must share that the cost of the bags will be $2.50. Thanks for reading!
Love, The Valentine Fairy

There has been some anticipation this year for Eliza's Hearts 4 Haiti charity. I have a goal to sell close to 400 bags! Last year we sold around 250. We ( my mom and I) are working with a local cookie shop to custom make the cookies for us so I can compile even more bags and not have to spend so much time doing the cooking. The cookie company is presently experimenting with a special recipe to make the cookies top quality for us and hopefully "heart-shaped". I can't wait to let everyone know what company will be helping us... I will announce this next week. Signed, The Valentine Fairy ( Eliza)
