Spreadin' the Love Blog Hop!!


Today I am taking part in a very important Blog Hop....to Spread the Love for Jaimie.

"On October 4
th, 4 teenagers armed with knives broke into a home in a small town in New Hampshire. Alone and sleeping inside were a mother and her 11 year old daughter. These 4 boys broke into this home with the intent to rob and kill anyone inside. They stabbed the mom, Kimberly Cates, to death and left her daughter, Jaimie, for dead in their driveway. It was a completely random act, their home was chosen only due to its secluded surroundings."

Our hope is that everyone hopping around today will stop for a moment and think about Jaimie and her father and what life must be like for them now. One moment in time has changed their lives forever. We are asking that everyone reading this message please take a moment to make a card and send it off to Jaimie. You can make something very simple or much more involved, but please share some words of hope and love and let her know that people care and are thinking of her. Please send your card to the address below:

Jaimie Cates
c/o Mont Vernon Fire Station
Main Street
Mont Vernon, NH 03057



I designed this card for Jaimie with the most girlie, sparkly, pretty things I could think of! I think Antoinette looks so joyful and full of happiness and the colours are perfect for a little girl. I hope the glitter and sparkles and bows bring just a tiny smile to her face.



If you would like to start the hop from the beginning, head over to Katharina's blog. And when you are done here, you can hop over to my good pal, Cammy's blog! Then when you reach the end of the blog there will be a challenge. One that will make you feel so good inside and will send love and hugs to one very hurt little girl. I am so proud to be one of the sponsors of this challenge. When you get there, you can read all about Jaimie and all about the details of the challenge.

Love,
Kimmie
