We are so excited to be a part of Layton’s Legacy Card Drive & Fundraiser Blog Hop in honor of Lea Lawson’s son Layton.

Lea is raising money and collecting Starbucks gift cards to distribute at the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital NICU for parents of the sweet babies spending time there. Make sure that you stop by Lea’s blog to read the story of her sweet baby boy.

How you can participate:

  • DONATE! – directly to Layton’s Legacy YouCaring Fundraiser. For every $5 donated, you will be entered into the drawing for one of the prizes above! All winners will be drawn from donations made thru the YouCaring Site. **Prizes will be drawn and announced on Lea Lawson’s blog on Saturday, May 19th.**


  • SHARE! – We know that not everyone is able to donate, but sharing about the fundraiser gives it more visibility! Please feel free to share the YouCaring Link or this post on all your social media outlets.
  • SHOP! See Lea’s blog for special shopping opportunities.
  • CREATE! – this is also a card drive, and if you’d like to create a card using the theme/moodboard below, that would be great! Handmade cards will be given with the gift cards when they are handed over to the NICU social worker. Link them up HERE, and then please email: lea@lealawsoncreates.com to get the address for sending – and note that Lea will need them to arrive by May 31st.
