Polka Dot Pals Rosalie

Hello Friends!
Today's post is about a special little girl.  I was commenting on some projects for a design team I am on and saw this story.  I was very moved- and I hope you get a chance to help too.


Little Misses and CART for Cassandra

Welcome!  Today I want to share my story with you about a special young girl. My 11-year old daughter, Cassandra, was born deaf and is brilliant. Although we had a huge learning curve, it has been an amazing and rewarding journey watching our little girl grow and experience life.

She attends a public school and has asked for real-time captioning (RTC).  RTC is where a captionist will type up what is spoken in class and display it on a tablet so she can read information that she has missed. Without it, she struggles every day and has to guess at the meaning of half-heard words and sentences.


This event is to raise awareness and to spread the word.  You can read more about her story HERE and sign the petition HERE.  For each signature we receive, the school administrators receive and email regarding our request.  I hope you can help me fill their in-boxes! 

To support this petition, and to spread the word, Little Miss Muffett Stamps has released a dozen new images to play with.  Plus Polka Dot Pals Rosalie is a freebie in the store for everyone to join in.  We’d love to see what you’ll create… but more importantly, we hope you can help Cassandra by signing the petition and spreading the word.  

You are welcome to send words of encouragement:
CART for Cassandra
P.O. Box 163462
Fort Worth, TX 76161-3462 

So this is the card I sent to Cassandra!

So go and grab this FREEBIE!!
Thanks,
Amy
