Project Charlie

Pin It
First, please forgive me for the absence.
I am still adjusting to working outside the home twice a week
and keeping up with a growing business.

BUT, you won't hear me complain!
I like to be busy.

Project Charlie

You are probably wondering what Project Charlie is all about.
Let me tell you.

My running buddy, Diana, who is also one of my besties,
is an incredible woman that has taken to helping save animals.
She fosters bully breeds (pit bulls and pit mixes) and works
closely with the BARC Animal Shelter here in Houston.

We all know shelters are always full, always in need.
This is where Project Charlie comes in.

We want to make the cages a bit more comfortable for the animals,
in particular, the kitties as they do not like to sleep on metal.
That is where we come in.

We would like to make fleece knot blankies for all the kitties.
In order to do that, we need HELP!
The blankets will be about 2.5' x 2' which will
allow us to make 3 blankets per 2 yards of fleece fabric.

Our goal is to make at least 100 blankets by December 1st.
But not only that, we want to give the staff something as well.
You know they are over-worked and under-paid.

What better way to say thank you to them other than putting together
a wonderful care package for each one which will include but not be
limited to a $5 gift certificate (to anywhere but preferably to Starbucks,
fast food restaurants, Target, Walmart, etc), soda, and snacks.

In order to make Project Charlie a success, we need your help!
We are accepting donations to purchase all the items above.
Whether it be in the form of cash, check, or items such as
fleece, sodas, snacks, or gift cards...we would really appreciate it!

If you are in Houston and don't have the funds to send something in,
it's ok because we need man power to make the blankets.
Knot blankies are so easy to make and we will gladly give you
the supplies you need in order to make it, just let us know!

We hope to make Project Charlie a yearly event.
This is our way of reaching out to help BARC.

The question is, will you take the challenge and help us?
For more information, please email us at
signature (dot) creations (at) hotmail (dot) com
and help us make this a success!!!

You can also donate by sending money via PayPal to
the same email address as above.
Just make sure to send it PERSONAL and GIFT
so Paypal doesn't take any fees from your donation.
Also, put PROJECT CHARLIE as the subject!

We appreciate you, your help, and you spreading the word!

Happy Friday peeps!
