For sweet little Henry

hello-monkey1 This week has been a very sad one. Henry Morgan Anderson, the 3 year old son of our former DT member Sarah Anderson and her husband Darrin, died Monday, November 2, 2009, after being unable to overcome a virus that made him ill last week. Henry enjoyed almost daily visits to the local zoo. There, he would watch the feeding and care given to the various animals.

Lorie Ames has organized a way to donate for a memorial for Henry. As a memorial, trees will be planted at that zoo in his honor. Melissa at Pink Cat Studio has created a digital stamp to help raise funds for a tree for Henry. I’ve used the digital stamp in my card above, as well as a digital greeting that Melissa has available on the site. All proceeds from the sale of the digi stamp, minus Paypal costs, will go towards the tree.

If you would like to donate towards the tree, please visit PCS to purchase the digi stamp that I used on my card today. Another way to donate to the memorial is to print out this form and mail in your donation directly. You can send in any amount using the form. The funds will be pooled.

Please be sure to write on the form that the donation is for Sarah Anderson’s son, Henry. Once all of the money is collected, a tree and location will be selected. If you have questions about the form please contact Lorie Ames. Lorie will be in contact with Sarah along this memorial journey to ensure that her wishes are followed.

To contact Lorie, please visit her blog.

If you don’t know Sarah and would like to learn more about her, please visit her blog.

Thank you for your help in raising money for a tree for Henry.

What a lovely card Carolyn, I adore the colorcombo you've made. Also I wanted to say how nice of you I think it is to spread the word about the fundraiser for little Henry.

Thank you so much for this. It meant a lot to us and was perfect because he loved monkeys and "gerfs".
