YOU can Make a Difference in a Child's Life!

Have you ever heard of Operation Smile? It is a non-profit organization that provides facial surgeries to children who have a cleft palate. It costs just $240 for one surgery. Check out these smiling children who have been blessed by a contribution. Aren't they awesome? Unfortunately, I am aware of too many of these situations where children want to be free of hardships based on their appearance and you can help!
If you are not aware, Close To My Heart is regularly donating to Operation Smile through the purchase of stamp sets and this month, through our "Share a Smile" special. You can also always make a donation through my website or by contacting me directly. 

Allow me to share ways on how you can support this worthy cause:

ROUND-UP MATCHING
Every time you place an order, you can round up to the nearest dollar (or higher), giving the extra as a donation to Operation Smile. During October, your round-up donation will go even further because Close To My Heart will be matching all round-up donations, up to $10,000! ($20,000 will provide for 83 surgeries!) The round-up option is provided upon checkout when placing an order through my website. Contact me with questions.

If $1,000 in donations/round-ups is submitted through my website before the end of the month, I will be entered in a drawing to serve Operation Smile on a future mission! That would be an awesome opportunity! 

PURCHASE A PUNNY PALS STAMP SET AND THIN CUTS
With the purchase of every "Punny Pals" stamp set, Close To My Heart will donate $7 of the proceeds to Operation Smile. 
And, for this month only and while supplies last, you can get a coordinating set of Thin Cuts for cutting out the adorable animal shapes. Even better, Close To My Heart has designed an exclusive card kit that includes the Thin Cuts along with card bases, envelopes, paper pieces, and instructions that you can use to create these endearing cards that are sure to bring a smile to anyone's day.
Here is an image that includes the kit contents:

To complete the cards as designed, you'll need these additional products:
  • D1751 My Acrylix® Punny Pals Stamp Set 
  • Z899 Black Memento™ Ink pad
  • Z3132 Watercolor Paints 
  • Z3224 Waterbrush—Small Round 
  • Y1003 2" x 2" My Acrylix® Block 
  • Z2060 Thin 3-D Foam Tape 
  • Z3372 Adhesive Runner

PURCHASE A SHIRT
Wear one of our "Simple Smile" or "Make Someone Smile" t-shirts with pride, knowing that $10 of every shirt purchase is donated toward Operation Smile. These shirts are exclusive to Close To My heart and represent the company's mission to celebrate life and share what matters. (You can find a sizing chart and prices through the provided links.)


YOU MIGHT WIN!
Finally, when you participate in our Share a Smile promotion by purchasing any of these special items or rounding up your order in support of Operation Smile™ you will automatically qualify for a chance to win a not-yet-released stamp set from our upcoming 2018 Seasonal Expressions 1 Idea Book! CTMH will be choosing winners throughout the month of October, so any time you place an order, you can be a winner!


Thank you for considering supporting Operation Smile while you also benefit with these fun items. Contact me with any questions.
