In Memory of Kathreen and Rob. {Clean.}

Like so many in the online crafting community, I was stunned to hear of the loss of pioneer and superstar Kathreen Ricketson this week. Kathreen and her partner Rob both lost thier lives while on a year-long unschooling and book-writing adventure across Austraila with their children.

I had the honor of working with Kathreen on several occasions and will attest to her inspiring spirit and contagious enthusiasm. Her work on both Whip-Up and Action Pack Magazine have inspired countless people. To say she will be missed is does not begin to touch the truth.

Kathreen and Rob were survived by their two magical children. A trust has been established for them because, well, because we need to help in some way – however small.

    This is so sad. I’ve added the button to my sidebar and am donating proceeds from the sale of some Angel Ornaments at my shop. (this is the only way I can donate at this time, or I would just directly donate to the fund). Thank you for providing the button. My heart goes out to their little ones & family.

    I am so saddened by this loss. Thank you for creating the button. My blog does not get much traffic yet, as I haven’t been very good about blogging, but perhaps someone will see my post and the button and offer a prayer or a donation. I have made a donation, and am sending endless prayers to the children, friends and family of these wonderful people.
