"Believe in the power of believing in yourself."
"It was my honor to create art for Girl Power 2 Cure. My dream is that my art touches lives in a meaningful and positive way, one heart at a time," shares Sandra.
GP2C Board Member, Emilie Rabke, says she was introduced to Sandra's work about eight years ago in a boutique shop in her hometown. She was instantly drawn to her work by the touching quotes and unique pieces.
Emilie says, "I love how so many of her quotes are exactly what I want to say, it is like she is reading my mind! Her work speaks to me and her handwritten quotes add a personal touch to each piece."
Emilie thought that Sandra Magsamen would be a perfect person to make a custom art piece for Girl Power 2 Cure as she believes in making every day count.
She says, "Like all parents of a daughter with Rett Syndrome, we try to make the most out of each day for our daughters in helping them and others who are around them. All of our girls living with Rett Syndrome are a gift and they truly give us so much to celebrate in their own way. They have taught us to believe and with this Sandra has written a beautiful quote to inspire us all.
"My hope for this project is that it will grow just like our Garden of Hope. The cards are simple with our flower incorporated into them with a beautiful quote. My hope is that people will not only believe that by purchasing these cards they are making a difference by contributing to research; but, that they learn to believe in girls with Rett Syndrome, like my daughter Anna Cate."
The note cards are approx. 4"x6" and come in a set of 12 with envelopes (4 of each design) and are available in our GP2C Store. Purchase for just about any occasion -- Teacher Appreciation Week, End-of-the-Year Teacher Gifts, Therapist Gifts, Mother's Day, Graduation, Birthday, Thank You, Holiday, OR Just Because! Proceeds will go to Rett Syndrome research.
Sandra adds, "I hope that these cards reach millions of hearts and the proceeds help to bring comfort, healing and a much prayed for cure!"
Thank you for your inspiration Sandra!
