Royal Purple Freedom Hop

Welcome to the Royal Purple Freedom Hop!  If you have arrived here from Talented Amanda  then you are on the right track.  If you just happened to stop by to visit my blog and would like to hop along with us, please start with  Faith who is the person who put this wonderful hop together.  Make sure to start from the beginning with Faith to see all the blog candy being given away. I am so honored to be a part of this amazing and thoughtful hop.  Please read below for the reason Faith started this hop.  If you make a card, you will be entered into a major prize drawing.  All the info is below.

About 4.8 million intimate partner-related physical assaults and rapes occur every year while many more assaults and rapes go unreported entirely. Over 3 million children witness violence in their home each year and those who see and hear violence in the home suffer physically and emotionally. These statistics are sad and overwhelming, but help IS out there for those that choose to break the silence.

Together we can make a difference! Help us instill some hope where very little probably exists and give 24 families a chance at recovery when we are able to donate 1k dollars to the Bradley Angle House. Your purple themed card(s) with a hope filled message inside could make all the difference, not to mention give YOU a chance to win the grand prize for this hop...what is it you ask?   A prize basket valued at more than $100. The blog participants (the ones who created for the hop) will not be entered into the drawing.  This Prize Basket is for all of you who send in a card for a great cause.

Want more chances to win the grand prize?  Additional entries will be given for each $1 donation you include with your card. Would you prefer 1 entry, 10 entries, or 100 entries  is more of what you had in mind? It's all up to you! Cards must be postmarked by June 30th for inclusion in basket drawings and can be mailed to the following address:

Royal Purple Hop
c/o Vicki Smith
P.O. Box 1496
Millbrook, NY 12545

I made 4 cards to send to the families who may need a little note of hope.  I hope that my cards will make them smile, even if it's just for a few minutes.

I have donated cards and money towards the cause to help these families in need, so I will not be offering blog candy for this hop.  I hope you understand. but....

(You still have until June 12 to win blog candy.  I am offering a prize for each day of the hop.  All you have to do is comment on my Thank You To Our Teachers Blog Hop Posts dated June 5th, 8th and 11th)

Your next stop along the way is the Amazing Jackie.   In case you get lost along the way, here's the entire line-up:
