Helping Hudson - a Wheely Great Cause!

Good morning everyone.  Today is the official first day of the fundraiser to help Hudson get a Kid Walker!  I donated an exclusive new design for the Punch Art Package.  This cute little beetle is so versatile. You could try changing his colors to create a different look.  It's a larger piecing, so it would work great for scrapbooking as well.  Please support this great cause and go to the site to order.  The bundles are listed as $10 Australian Dollars each.  When converted to US Dollars, they are only about $9.50 each.  That's a bargain for 10 different designs per bundle!  The tutorials will be delivered to you via email after paying through paypal.

Below is a look at my design included in the Punch Art package.  Following that is some more information about this wonderful cause.

It’s true when they say that a little goes a long way, and I’m here to tell you about how a simple purchase of some fun -filled paper craft tutorials can give freedom to a little boy!

Hudson is 2 ½ but unlike most children his age, he has had a tough little life!  Doctors realised he had an incomplete brain before he was born and as a newborn he was discovered to be legally blind.  Hudson has recently been diagnosed with both Cerebral Palsy and Epilepsy!  His mobility has been hindered severely by his disabilities, however his family and friends wish nothing more than to give him the chance to get moving on his own. Hudson needs a special Wheelchair/Walker, called a Kid Walker. This device will help get him mobile, allow him to play with his brother and sister, interact with other children his own age and give him independence in his day to day life!

This is where the stamping world really comes into play! When a group of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators are asked for help they come to the rescue, ink and paper in hand, to work miracles. This is what has happened around Hudson over the last few months. First with his mum’s direct team, and then spreading out across Australia and New Zealand and over in to the US, the UK and Canada! His story has touched so many people so its time to share it with you all! 

There is a HUGE online stamping event taking place, called Helping Hudson -A Wheely Great Cause!  The organisers have been working really hard, securing support, tutorials and donations to get this event underway. There are going to be three weeks of stamping fun for you to join in – come back as often as you can, there will always be lots more to see, do and learn. It kicks off on the 1st August and will run right through until the 22nd. You’ll find it at

When you come on over to the blog you’ll find out all about Hudson, his family and his cause! But, more importantly, you can DO SOMETHING TO HELP HUDSON, at the same time as helping yourself learn how to make some great new paper craft projects. How? By purchasing bundles of tutorials kindly donated by Stampin’ Up! demonstrators the world over.  Each bundle has 10 fun-filled tutorials for just AU$10 (This is approximately $7.75 in US Dollars)! And there are six themes to choose from: Bags & Boxes, Christmas, Kids’ Birthdays, Projects for Men & Boys, Punch Art & Scrapbooking. There’s even a FREE bonus bundle if you buy four or more. WOW how exciting! All proceeds go directly to help Hudson.

And we would love you to help spread the word too. Check out the ‘Spreading The Word’ page at the site for all you need to know to get the word out to as many people as you can.

Thank you so much for your support of our fundraiser. It means so much to me and my family. I can't wait to share the news that Hudson has finally got his wheels.
