OWL Valentine's Cards, Anna Griffin Designer Papers, Hot Pinks, Zebra, Cheetah, Black and White

I would like to introduce you to a very special Etsy shop.

This shop was started to help earn money for a very worthy cause, to help begin research for a devastating illness. The following is taken from the shop's profile.

This shop was established to sell items to raise funds for Cockayne Syndrome research because there is currently no treatment for children affected by CS. There is not even a clinical trial testing any medications.

What is CS?

CS is a tragic childhood disease that causes premature aging and a shortened lifespan.

The butterfly is the symbol for children who have lost their lives early to CS, so many of our items feature this symbol.

Please consider purchasing an item in our shop or donating cards/items to the shop. You will be credited in the item description.

Thank you so much,

Thank you for taking time to visit this shop, and hopefully you will find something you like.  Check out the wonderful handmade cards they have to offer!

That's awesome. I've never heard of this. Always learn something new and to have a cause ~ even better.

Thanks Pepperhead. Here's to praying for a cure!

What words can I use to explain how much it means to me that you posted this? You have brought me to tears by your kindness, thank you so much. I am grateful to you for raising awareness of CS among your circles. I know a cure will be found someday, I just hope that someday is soon. Thanks again from the bottom of my heart <3

Many blessings!
