Heute möchte ich euch zeigen was durch eure Hilfe möglich war!
This happy and excited man is Tina's (the owner of High Hopes Rubber Stamps) grandfather. One month ago I asked you for help to bring happiness to Frank's life and to send him a card for his 88th birthday. My fellow High Hopes Design Team Divas also asked for help and it was a huge success. But read for yourself what Frank has to say :)
Dieser glückliche und aufgeregte Mann ist Tina's (die Besitzerin von High Hopes Rubber Stamps) Großvater. Vor ca. 1 Monat habe ich euch um Hilfe gebeten um Frank zu seinem 88. Geburtstag eine große Freude zu machen. Meine HHRS Design Team Kolleginnen baten auf ihren Blogs ebenfalls um Hilfe. Und es war ein riesen Erfolg!!! Aber lest selbst was Frank dazu zu sagen hat :)
I am most grateful to all the people who took the time, effort, and expense of sending greetings for my 88th birthday. My son Frank initiated the idea abetted by my granddaughter Tina, that caused an avalanche of cards totaling over one hundred and fifty. I received 46 cards on one day alone!
Many were from relatives, but a great number were from people I have never met. Quite a number of different states were represented as well as many Canadian Provinces. Many customers of Tina's stamp and card business in other countries were nice enough to send greetings.
Represented were Australia, Austria, Canada, England, France, Germany, Iceland, Italy, Scotland, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and the Union of South Africa. All these were hand crated and showed effort and originality.
My heartfelt thanks to all who sent these many greatly appreciated greetings. They made this a birthday to be well remembered.
Sincerely, Frank White
