APRIL 1ST GIVE A FOOL A £1 DAY by Rich Watson
Rich Watson is a good friend of Crafty Bob so please help
I am currently fundraising for the Huntington's Disease Association. I know I keep asking for help, but donations are drying up so I'm getting desperate and am trying something different!
Can I tell you a very short story? When I was 13 I met the most beautiful girl (Nicola Colgan) and we started 'going out'. 8 years later we got married and last December we celebrated out 20th wedding anniversary with our 2 beautiful daughters, Olivia (13) and Holly (12). Unfortunately this was shortly after Nicola was diagnosed with Huntington's Disease (HD). There is currently no cure or treatment for HD and this disease will stop her ability to walk, talk, eat and ultimately live.
This makes me very sad and very angry but I have 2 options - 1. do nothing. or 2. do whatever I can to help raise much needed funds to provide support for people with this disease and ultimately find a cure.
I chose option 2. I will never give up and am currently doing a challenge to walk, run or cycle at least 5km EVERY DAY for 100 days. So far I have averaged over 10km per day and on 1st April I will have passed half way and would really like your help. I really believe that with funding a cure can be found and we can celebrate many more wedding anniversary's together (unless she divorces me for doing this ;-)
All I am asking for is a donation of £1 on April Fools day to celebrate me being a fool to think this would be easy but getting past half way :-) I know everyone has a million things they need to spend their money on but all I am asking for is £1, Please.
You can donate by text by texting 'NOHD71 £1' to 70070 or you can donate via my website at CLICK HERE
Please please please help if you can - can I also ask (or beg) that you invite some of your facebook friends to this 'event' so we can spread the word and raise some money.
Thank you. Rich Watson

Spring has Arrived! by Diane Hannah
It's a lovely warm but cloudy Easter Sunday. Spring is finally arriving, with the pollen scattered on everything, bulbs blooming everywhere, and the Cherry Blossom Trees in bloom. This one pictured is in my yard. Planted about 10 years ago as just one little stick. It is now in bloom and oh so beautiful, it has these fabulous light pink flowers, that will yield to lush green leaves that will stay until fall. Spring and summer are my favorite time of the year. Spring with all of the birds singing is what inspired me to make the Romantic Bird series of cards. Available as a bumper set, or choose one or two of your personal favorites. Everyone on your card list would love to receive one of these cards on their next special day! Great for many occasions, each card includes printed sentiment tags, and a blank for you to personalize.
