PAINT FOR CHARITY




PLEO PAINT IN

Our annual Paint for Charity event....

PARENTS' LIFELINES OF EASTERN ONTARIO

To raise funds that will provide recreation and socialization for 16 to 25 year olds living with mental illness. This is a hugely underfunded area and every penny we raise counts.

HOW CAN YOU HELP?

OUR GOAL FOR 2010 IS TO RAISE $5,000

All you need to do is paint, decoupage, quilt, make cards or use whatever craft method you prefer to create an ornament or other small gift item.

Your donation of this craft item is then sold by volunteers during Christmas sales events. And all the proceeds go toward our cause. Every cent.

Love to knit or crochet? We can definitely use your hand made slippers and mittens and scarves!

Mail or drop off your items to EARMARK Purrductions Creative Studios, 3152 Stonecrest Road, RR2, Dunrobin, Ontario, Canada, K0A 1T0.

If you prefer to make a financial contribution, please mail your cheque directly to Parents' Lifelines of Eastern Ontario, 204 Rosebud Private, Ottawa ON K1T 2B1 Charitable # 89563 5019 RR0001. (Please do not send financial contributions to me.)

I wish you could see the look on those young people's faces when they see the ornaments arriving, knowing someone out there cares so much.

YOU GET YOUR OWN WEB PAGE!

As the ornaments arrive, they are photographed and uploaded to a new page. Your very own web page! A page you can share with family and friends.

It's our way of showing the world how much YOU care.

We chose Parents' Lifelines of Eastern Ontario as our paint for charity project because they are so underfunded.

A BIG THANK YOU!

300 laser cut MDF tags and ornaments donated by Coyote Woodworks

A charity event is never a one-person effort.

I would like to thank Janet, the owner / operator of Coyote Woodworks who without hesitation, agreed to donate so many of the laser-cut MDF ornaments.

It is these generous and gracious acts of kindness that make doing a good deed do-able. It makes our paint for charity efforts worthwhile and possible!

MORE THANKS to all the volunteers!
