Puzzled

"peppermint stripe" charitable puzzle piece wreath ornament


Do you have puzzles sitting around the house that have seen better days? Either they are missing pieces, have been outgrown or just not used(and probably won't be!)

I have a purpose for those poor neglected puzzle pieces. Every year I like to sell an ornament to benefit a charitable cause. This year I am selling puzzle piece wreath ornaments to benefit a charity called
Autism Solution Center. Their vision is to open a minimum of one, NO COST autism treatment, education, assistance and research facility in each of the 50 US states, and abroad in other countries.

If you would like to mail me your unwanted puzzle pieces(all sizes welcome, please use the most cost effective method of postage), I will donate the mailing cost +$1 to Autism Solution Center. In addition, I will send you a puzzle piece wreath as a special Thank You for helping me in my endeavor. If it sounds like it is something you'd be interested in, leave me a comment with your email address and we can exchange mailing addresses.

OHHHHH! I don't have any puzzles. I'll have to see what's left at my Dad's house next time I'm there. If I find any, I will forward them on to you. Wonderful idea - both the ornament and the raising of funds.
