The Heart Project: A Fundraiser

The heart project is a collaboration of over 70 bloggers, including myself, to raise funds for The American Heart Association. This has been orchestrated by Jamie from hands on : as we grow, and it's a project that's very important to her

We have worked together to produce an ebook with over 100 heart projects made for or by kids. The book includes projects to create, cook, display, and play with.  I'm excited to tell you that our I Spy Toy Heart Collage has been included! This book of hearts is beautiful, and you can have a copy of your own by making a donation to the American Heart Association. We are hoping to raise $1,000 dollars for the AHA by Valentine's Day. 

About The Book:

The heart project eBook contains photographs of heart projects from bloggers all over the world. It also contains links for tutorials to almost all of the projects included. You can also choose to get the printed version, which would make a beautiful coffee table book. The printed version includes an index of the blogs that contributed so that you may still visit the blogs that contributed.

Would you like a sneak peek of the book?

This book will only be available through donation through the month of February, so you'll need to hurry! Make a $5 dollar donation to the AHA and you'll receive the eBook as a free gift. This would also be a great book of resources for Valentine's Day!

Ways To Donate:

US $5.00 Donation to the AHA
Add to Cart

craftprojectideas.com showing the love

And in addition to your $5 dollar donation, Craftprojectideas.com has agreed to donate another dollar on your behalf for every book sold (up to $500).  If you would like to tell them thanks for their generosity, you can visit the CraftProjectIdeas Facebook Page.

If you would rather have the printed version (or in addition!) you have that option as well. They are 8.5 x 8.5", paper back, and full color. For every book sold, there will be a $5 (US Dollars) donation made to the AHA. And again, this book is only available through donation through the month of February.

US $20.00

If you would like to donate without receiving the book, you can do that as well. Any dollar amount would be appreciated!
