Lindsey's Legacy Hop

Welcome to those who've come from Tracey's blog....

Today, we are hopping in memory of our dear friend and fellow cardmaker, Lindsey Martin-Penny, who sadly passed away last year from a rare and aggressive form of ovarian cancer. 

September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month and Lindsey’s husband Burke thought it would be a great time to sell off her many craft supplies, with all of the proceeds going towards Lindsey’s Legacy Fund for Clear Cell Ovarian Cancer Research in cooperation with The Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

The purpose of this hop will be to honour Lindsey, celebrate her life and all that she loved, as well as help spread the word to raise funds for clear cell ovarian cancer research.  You can help in one of several ways!

1. Purchase a Flat Rate Mailer stuffed with loads of fabulous craft supplies.  These can only be mailed within Canada and there will be no tax receipts provided with the purchase of these boxes.  A box of craft supplies would make a great gift for yourself, a crafty friend or a child/classroom!  For details about the boxes and how you can go about purchasing one, please email lindseyslegacyfund@rogers.com with the message "Craft Box" or visit Lindsey’s original blog, Bashful Blogging.  Every craft box purchase in September will be entered into a draw and one lucky winner will win a $100 gift certificate to Scrap ‘n Stamp.

2. During the month of September, shop at Scrap ‘n Stamp using the code LINDSEY10 at checkout.  You will get 10% off your purchase (sale items excluded) and Scrap ‘n’ Stamp will donate 10% of their proceeds to Lindsey’s Legacy Fund.

3. Any donations over $15 made directly to Lindsey’s Legacy Fund will receive a digital tax receipt.
4. Repost this hop on your social media and encourage others to share!

Lindsey’s Legacy Hop begins at my wonderful friend Emily Leiphart’s blog.  If you get lost along the way, please return to Emily’s blog where she will have the entire hop list.

How to hop:
💙 Like and leave a comment at each stop
💙 Learn a little bit about Lindsey’s connection to that person
💙 Share this post and help us save lives

Emily introduced me to Lindsey as Lindsey would frequently travel to my neck of the woods to visit family.  I was so lucky to meet Lindsey and her husband Burke in person a few times and we stayed connected through crafting.  She also joined our Seize the Birthday design team.  She was such an amazing person and I feel luck to have known her.  We were known to have cocktails together when she was visiting so I made a cocktail card in her honour (and CASED one of hers). I miss her ... this hop makes me happy and sad too.

The next stop on the hop is the wonderful Carol. Please be sure to leave a comment at each of the stops where you can learn more about Lindsey’s life, loves and her legacy.

Thanks so much for hopping with us!

p.s. I'm also hopping along as part of Color Hues so this is one of two posts today to honour Lindsey.

Glad that I 'met' you through her.
