A Very Airmail Christmas: 2012

Good afternoon my dearest Dingleberries, don't be mad. I warned you yesterday that I was back. By that I meant to annoy the ever living shit out of you. So feel free to fling some poo!!

As most of you are well aware I signed up for A Very Airmail Christmas in 2012. Hoping some of you did the same. It was a heart wrenching experience and really hit home with me at the loss of my dear Mama MB. This project all began way far away from me at the loss of a very strong woman who also lost her battle with cancer. One of her last wishes were that strangers from across the world would mail Christmas cards to each other.  What a wonderful idea and way to spread the cheer across the world.  
My heart goes out to her family and loved ones.  It's not easy.

It was a good experience and though  I wasn't able to share it with Mama MB I hope we can do it again next year.  


My card came all the way from Edinburgh, wishing I had a link to her page so I could pay her thanks.  Beautiful card and I loved that she actually purchased/sent out cards that funded cancer research. I will remind myself to do exactly the same thing next year.. 

Because you know what?  There is never enough research being done to stop this monster!!  

-Hang in there!

    I'm actually friends with the person who sent your card, she doesn't have a blog though I keep pestering her to start one. I have sent her a link to this post though so she can see it. :)

  3. Oh geesh I didn't even know this project was for those fighting the battle, I would have surely joined. At the time I was worried about money, I'll be sure to include this for next year. It's a good cause and surely won't break the bank!

    2. Oh no. I looked yours up Jo-Anne, and I know the person sent it, because there is a picture of it in the gallery before it got posted. I know my card which was going to NZ took about 3 weeks to arrive... I'm so sorry the card hasn't arrived. Pesky postal services!!

  7. The number of break throughs lately have been crazy. Hopefully something in the next few years will come out of this.

  9. It was so much fun to set up and it will definitely be done this year too. Like I mentioned I'd like to do it in memory of Mama MB this year. I know it's what 'Robin' would have wanted - to spread the memories of others too! Happy new year girly and hope the bump is behaving!
