Hello and welcome!!! If you came here from Lee Murphy's blog you're on the right track!
The creative blogging community is coming together today and through the weekend to help one of our friends, Julie Ranae. You may know her as the Design Team Coordinator for many wonderful companies including The Twinery, Lil' Inker Designs and so many more.
Julie does so much for our companies and now it is time for her friends to help her out in return.
What many people don’t know about Julie Ranae is that she has had some pretty major dental surgeries in her lifetime due to medication she had to take as a child. It was in her plans to think about having all of her teeth replaced at some point in the next 5 years, a decision that was pretty easy to plan out. But then it happened…she chipped her front teeth a month ago. The dentist told her there was no way to save them & that it was his recommendation that she have all her teeth removed soon, but for that day, they needed to get her front teeth done so her gums could begin to heal. He said he would 'work out payments with her to have ALL this work done...but when she called to make her appt for the first step of impressions, they told her the amount of money that was needed and that the 'payments' applied only to the two teeth that were extracted that day. Her husband Paul was with her & that too, was his understanding as well. So this is how she has found herself in this situation…Needing at least $4000 to get started and another $3000 to finish the process…a total of $7000.
Nicole Rixon, owner of Sweet Stamp Shop put together this benefit after finding out about this situation and before Julie Ranae knew it, it took flight!
Because she is an event organizer by trade, she has taken on the job of organizing all of the blogs in this hop as her way of ‘working overtime’ for what she needs, the same as if she were able to work overtime at an outside job to pay for the work to be done.
It is the goal of all of the generous friends & sponsors of the OJS hop to help make this situation more do-able for our friend so that she can share a brand new smile with all of us soon.
