Guard Your Heart Journal ~ Pay it Forward February

{Have you ever heard about a situation and it just breaks your heart and you feel like you HAVE TO do something about it?A few months back I met a lady, Lovely Reckley, and she told me how she goes to four different schools in Abaco and feeds 85+ children that would have otherwise had no lunch. For some of these kids, this is the only meal of the day.Lovely even takes food to some of them when school is out.That really broke my heart. I mean, I know there are kids all over the world that are starving, but when I realized there were children right under my nose it killed me. I kept wondering what I could do. I thought about offering to help cook, but cooking for so many mouths really overwhelmed me. Then I realized what a COMMITMENT this awesome woman had made to these children…..EVERYDAY!!!At Christmas, instead of giving gifts I gave a donation to her organization (and to our Humane Society) instead of buying things that people really didn’t need.But it kept tugging at my heart. So, I decided for the month of February I would post several heart themed items to my blog. They would be for sale, and I would give 25% of the cost of the item to Lovely, to help with her costs.I may post an item everyday or I may post several items a week…..I am really not sure, but 25% will go to “Feed the Children” in Abaco, Bahamas.I CANNOT imagine going without food, or only having one meal a day that I had to rely on someone else to bring to me, and these children shouldn’t have to deal with this either, so please help!}

I was M.I.A. yesterday because I decided to go to the doctor to find out that I have laryngitis!! Today is day 4 with no voice. Very frustrating, and my furry children are fully taking advantage of me! Doc says I should feel better by the weekend or early next week……..*sigh*
Today I am listing my Guard Your Heart Journal that I showed you a few weeks ago in this post.

I made this for my show and was so very proud of this. Can you believe it was the only journal cover that did not sell? So I am putting it out there one last time. If there are no takers this time then it is meant to be mine 🙂

This journal cover fits a Mead Composition Book, so it can be reused over and over and is machine washable.

It is a sewn collage of cotton fabrics, burlap and buttons.
Full of texture!

This journal cover is $45, and 25% of that will go to Feed the Children Abaco.
You can find it in my Etsy store……HERE.
Or you can message me on my Bahama Dawn Facebook page….HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!
