Ear Trust

As most of my blogger friends know my darling grandaughter carly who's 3 is profoundly deaf. She had a cochlear implant op in jan 2010 and it has changed her life completely. She can now hear as well as you or me with her implants in. I wanted to do something to thank the implant centre and Chris Raine the amazing surgeon who did so much for her. I had no idea where to start but the lovely Dragonllew asked her friend janette from stamping dragon designs  if she could help and she did us an amazing snail digi which she has kindly given us permission to sell to fundraise . Janette also did our fab badge and she also did me a fab christmas version too. Both versions are available to buy for 1.50 each from me .If you wouldn't mind then i'd like paypal gift then we don't pay fees . I have now added a donate button in my sidebar to make donating easier . Please state whether you'd like the santa snail or normal. Here are a few examples of what i've done with them so far

I know it's a big ask but if you could help we would be very grateful. I will have to email them out myself and will do so as soon as possible.
If you click here you can see more examples of janette's fab work .

As a thank you to all my lovely followers I am offering a draw for blog candy  just leave your name at the bottom of this post Draw will take place on the 17th november Be Lucky. . Please would you take the ear trust badge from my sidebar to help us raise awareness  as this is a very difficult task. Thank you

  1. I have just brought the christmas digi, he is so sweet! I can't wait to use him.

  2. I have just brought the normal snail. I have never done a paypal payment not through ebay, so I hope its right! Have added the logo to my side bar too.

  3. Oh Nooooo Ive just gone to click on palpal address in post and it says default client is not installed arghhhh do you know what that means? I have a paypal account.
    I have popped this on my blog with a link back

  4. Well done Trisha, your makes are gorgeous, hope you get loads of sales, I'm off to sort my digi out now... xxx

  5. Bit late now but will be back to buy a digi over the weekend. Have put the badge and link on my side bar mean time. A great cause and I'm so glad it has work so well for your grand daughter.

  6. Sorry me again - can someone tell me how I can purchase through paypal ? Im such a numpty at things like this xx

  7. do you have a paypal account? If so just go to paypal and log yourself in . then it'll put you on your overview page . Along the top is a row of tabs click on the one that says send money. In the box that says to: you put the email addy listed then how much you want to send .Then click personal then make sure dot is in box next to gift then click continue. just follow any further instructions usually it asks you to confirm you want to send /or that it has sent . Hope this helps trisha x
    If you don't use paypal normally i'll have to figure it for you.

  8. Just checked if you don't have a paypal account then you click on the yellow send money box here Then it will pop open a window . you type in my email addy then your own then how much to send then click on personal, then gift ,then continue and it will ask for your card details. Hope this helps trisha x
