I hop you are enjoying the hop today!! Did you hop here from Melissa's blog??? If not, start back at the beginning on Katharina's blog to see some amazing creations, words of hope and a chance to win some fabulous prizes.

This hop is in honor of Jaimie Cates. She is the 11 year old neighbor of my friend and a strong, brave girl. It is hard to believe there are teenagers out there who are evil enough to do what they did to Jaimie and her mom. But through organizing this hop, I found there are even more amazing people out there with huge hearts. People from all over the world are doing whatever they can to restore hope in this little girl's life. Hugs to you all!

Please take a few moments once you reach the final stop on the hop, our new spread the love...for Jaimie blog, to read her story, light a virtual candle and send a card. If you are able, there are links there as well to her mother's memorial funds.

Your next stop is Kimmie!!! Please continue spreading the love!!! The hop runs until 10am Monday, Nov. 9.

Please help us spread the word by posting about the hop on your blog. Leave a comment here for your chance at my blog candy shown here. Make a card and post on the last stop for your chance at sponsor donated candy!
