FYI:  Many of you have noticed that we have cards in the store.  This is my personal donation.  I purchased the cards for various ocations myself.  All of the money from these cards goes to “Crafting for a Cure.”  The money goes to Childrens Hospital in Detroit, Michigan.  It buys craft supplies for children.  So when you choose a card or two to take home, the money goes into the canister near the register. 🙂 Nancy
