Queen of Hearts

Kicking off a big month at the Preppy Pink Palace!  I'm dedicating this month, with the help of some fab friends, to my darling friend Margie, the Queen of Hearts.
"Since 2003 Marjorie Sprague, founder of The Queen of Hearts Foundation, has been raising money and awareness in support of the cancer and organ donor communities. Marjorie’s passion comes from very personal experience. She received the precious gift of life twice; beating non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1997 and then receiving a new heart in 2005. She started The Queen of Hearts Foundation to provide financial assistance to individuals coping with the day to day challenges of surviving cancer; or waiting for or recovering from transplantation. The Foundation hopes to make a difference by removing some of the financial stress.
Since its humble beginnings, the Foundation has grown, taking advantage of the opportunities that have been given to Marjorie to help others fighting for that second chance at life. The Queen of Hearts Foundation is a totally volunteer organization that thrives on getting people involved. What cause appeals to you? Doing good for others will give you inspiration in other areas of your life. One person can make a difference. Please support the Queen of Hearts Foundation and help make that difference."

Margie was on the transplant list, still waiting for her heart, when she decided to start Queen of Hearts, wanting to help others even while waiting for life saving help herself!  She is a true inspiration to all who know her and that is the reason that QoH is entirely volunteer and has nearly quadrupled what we raise since our inception!
The QoH started the month with our 9th annual Aloha FundraiserIt is a fantastic Aloha themed casino night with a chinese auction that is always a good time!  But it's time for us to grow again and we have our sights set on the internet!  We have a website and an underutilized Facebook cause and non-profit fan page...but those days are over.  Internet, here we come!
To get us started, the lovely ladies at The Pink Monogram and Marley Lilly gave us wonderful donations for the chinese auction...our FIRST from online retailers!!!

Now it's your turn to join it the fun!  Your first Queen of Hearts treat is brought to you by Marley LillyJust pop over to Facebook and "like" the Queen of Hearts and when you spend $85 at Marley Lilly, use coupon code QOH for FREE SHIPPING!!!  There more generosity to come this month from some truly amazing people...make sure you keep checking back!!!
