Remember how cool it was in elementary school to give and get Valentines? You'd beg your mom to buy you the coolest ones, the ones that had stickers and the whole nine yards. And you'd look forward to whatever DIY craft your teacher came up with that year for your valentine "mailbox". The only one I clearly remember making was a huge heart pocket, made out of red construction paper, with pink yarn used to close up the sides.
Well, who says big kids can't have fun still? Here at Haiti Scholarships, we're allowing you to re-live the glory days, while also helping our students register for classes. In exchange for a minimum $20 donation, we'll send you 5 handmade valentines, which you can share with your closest friends. Imagine the joy of 1) your adult friend getting a valentine in the mail, just like the old days; and 2) students in Haiti knowing they'll be able to enroll or stay in school. Talk about a win-win!
So, what kind of valentines are we talking here? Nothing fancy, but they're made by yours truly, with LOL (according to my mom, this means "lots of love").
Just click here to donate, and donate at least $20.00. Then send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address. A few disclaimers: orders will be taken up to and including February 10, 2012; colors and patterns may vary; free shipping within the US only (sorry!).
A huge thank you to Jeff Armstrong for donating his photography skills!
