FredFlare, a cute boutique on the web and in Brooklyn, NY, is hosting a sort of "valentine drive" where you make homemade valentines, mail them in, and they will sell the unique creations in their store for $4 a piece, with all of the proceeds going to Elder Craftsmen. My grandparents participate in that program, and a lot of what they do is make things like baby blankets etc for charitable causes. So this is basically charity for charity! It sounds fun!

Information: http://www.fredflare.com/blog/?p=3196&bf=sw

1) MAKE A VALENTINE
You can make it out of anything Construction paper, collage, paint, crayon, a print of a photo you took, write a poem, make a mix tape, whatever ya feel like! Just make it fun and from the heart and easy to send. Be sure to include a matching envelope. Have fun with that also!

2) SEND YOUR VALENTINE + ENVELOPE TO FF BEFORE JAN 15TH
Ya can just pop both in another envelope and send it regular mail to SNAIL MAIL VALENTINES c/o fredflare.com, 300F Kingsland Av, Brooklyn NY 11222. Hurry! Your valentine MUST be postmarked no later than Thurs, Jan 15th to participate. Thats only 10 days away. DONT flake on me, peeps!

3) YOUR VALENTINE WILL DEBUT ON FF THE LAST WEEK OF JANUARY
All valentines will be sold online and in our new Brooklyn store for the super friendly price of ONLY $4 EACH and ALL the proceeds from the sales of these valentines will go directly to Elder Craftsmen! Our last charity event raised $5K. Can we beat it? With your amazing creation in the mix, I know we can!

What a GREAT idea!  I only came across this post yesterday, but wanted to participate...  I didn't have time to make many, but I did send a few valentines off this afternoon - I hope they arrive in time to be included!.  Please keep us updated on how it goes, OK?
