Charity stamp for Baylee


Good morning girls i have a special card to show you today and if you can help please do xxxx
It's not a new thing to mention that Charity is an important aspect of life to me. Honestly, I think that if you receive good fortune in life, it is out of respect to God who gave you that fortune to help others who might need help. There are so many ways to provide an act of charity to help someone. Often times, financial assistance can help someone get thru a hard time because it's one part they wont need to worry about as much.
This is where Paper Makeup Stamps has often stepped in doing charity stamps. When you purchase a charity stamp or image, all proceeds from the sale all go directly to the designated charity.
Recently, Paper Makeup Stamps was contacted by 2 friends (Carole Chesser and Ashley Newell) about a sweet girl named Baylee Tadlock. At the age of 9 months, Baylee was diagnosed with Leigh's Syndrome. Leigh's Syndrome is a metabolic-mitochondrial disease. The family was told to expect Baylee's life to be only of about 2 years. That she would never walk, talk, sit up or even crawl. But Baylee was a fighter and a lover of life! She loved to ride horses! She loved disney and princess Ariel. Baylee recently went to be with our Lord on January 9th at the age of 13. You can read all about Baylee, her too short life, and her family's amazing faith at www.adreamforbaylee.com
One of our illustrators, Diem Pascarella drew this wonderful image. All proceeds from the sale will go directly to the Tadlock family. They have set up a scholarship fund in baylee's name with http://projectride.org. Project Ride is a program giving therapeutic recreational horseback riding instruction to children and adults with special needs. PMS is designating the funds for the tadlock to use as they need.
We thank you for your support in helping us to help remember sweet Baylee Rose.
