As most of you know, Jane has a very special birthday coming up and we though it would be nice to acknowledge it this year in a special way.
We thought given that there is very little Jane doesn't 'have or can't buy for herself that the best gift we could give her is excuse the expression "a gift from the heart" - a check for the new charitable foundation she and James
have started- The Open Heart Foundation. With that in mind, in order for this to be meaningful we are going to set a goal of $500. Given how many order Jane's products usually, we feel this is an attainable goal. I know many of you would prefer to give Jane something more personal but she has made it clear over the years that as much as she loves and appreciates the thought behind these "gifts" she really doesn't know what to do with them. A gift to her foundation is something she will truly embrace. However, for those who would like to feel they are reaching out to her in a more personal way we would like to invite you to include a personal note in an email - or even snail mail if you wish with your donation. (Please do not send gifts or artwork etc)

Probably the most efficient way of doing this is by paypal. Most of you know my paypal but if not it is michaela1@aol.com If you don't have paypal and prefer to send a check, email me privately and I will give you my home address.

Our common appreciation for Jane and her works has brought so many of us together, let's use this time to show her our own appreciation for that and the many years of enjoyment she has given us.
We hope you will want to participate in this special project in whatever amount you can.

Jane's birthday is February 15th so we have approximately one month to meet our goal. Please do not post this information on Facebook as that is one place Jane could possibly see it.

After considering the amount of time we have to get this together I would like to set a deadline of February 1st to get everyone's money, and personal notes to me. Also depending on how much we collect- I'll do a poll to see how many would prefer all the money go to the foundation and how many would like to get flowers also.IF we do flowers to get something really decent we will have to plan on $200 or so. We did that before when James's father died and that is what we paid. So we can think about that. Everyone is being quite generous so I really think we may even surpass our goal who knows! This is our chance to kind of show Jane how much we appreciate her by honoring something that means a lot to her.

Hi everyone, after thinking about this a bit I'd like to add that anyone who would like to send Jane a birthday card can add that with their donation or if they are using paypal just send the card . YOu can send the cards to me and I will include them in the envelope. Please nothing but birthday cards though- however if those of you are creative wish to design your own, that's fine.
This way everyone who wants to personalize their gift to Jane will be able to. I will also have the names of all who donate printed in the card as I think to do this right we will have the card printed professionally. So far we are doing fairly well but let's see how much we can collect by Feb 1st.

Thanks to everyone who has already contacted me!

After thinking about it and talking to several people, I think we really should stick to just the check for Jane for the foundation. We forget, she has a beautiful garden of her own and I'm told now that she has a delivery of fresh flowers also every day so really the money would be kind of wasted. I think the idea was to make the gift more personal but we can do that with people writing cards and notes. Hope people agree. Besides then our goal would have to be about $700. Knowing Jane it will mean far more to her to get a donation for the foundation since it will be opening a few days later officially.
