the heart project fundraiser kickoff

I am so excited to be a part of the heart project, a collaborative project to raise money for the American Heart Association. There are more than 70 bloggers who have teamed up to provide a beautiful ebook of heart projects in order to raise money for the AHA.  The group is headed up by Jamie at Hands On: As We Grow.
The book includes 100 + ideas for kids. The projects are divided into four sections cook, create, play, and display. There are  photographs with links to the project instructions for each project! My contribution was the "I Love You More" Heart which was based on the book, "I Love You More". (Stick around to the end of the post, and I'll tell you how to win that book too!!)
The book is loaded with other heart themed activities. Here's a sample:

You can get a copy of the book by donating $5 to the American Heart Association. Our goal is to raise $1,000 for the AHA by Valentine's Day. The book is only available for download through donation for the month of February! Get it before it's gone!
Add to Cart

There is also a printed version available for $20 plus shipping ($5 of each purchase of the printed soft cover book will go to the AHA)
US $20.00

We really want to make this project a success so we've teamed up with some companies to sponsor the project. 
craftprojectideas.com showing the love

For every book sold, Craftprojectideas.com is donating $1! That means in addition to your $5 donation by purchasing the The Heart Book, Craftprojectideas.com will donate another $1 on your behalf (up to $500!)

We are also partnered with Melissa and Doug and Fudoo Boards. They are offering great prize packs which will be auctioned off. Check out the links to the auctions on ebay.
