Right now I have the Beatles tune about things getting better all the time looping through my head and I'm loving it! We are so blessed to have wonderful participants in our crop who return year after year and we LOVE YOU ALL!!! Many people who have never been but are thinking of signing up balk at the mandatory minimum of $100 in donations we ask from every participant. But once you've been to the event, nobody ever seems to think twice! We are so grateful!
I want to let everyone know that 100% of the donations that you bring in for YSC Duluth stays in our area to help young women with breast cancer by funding our support, outreach, and educational programs. In fact we work hard to get donations ourselves so as much money as possible from your registration fee can be put into our programs as well. We are constantly touched and overwhelmed by the generosity of our sponsors and donors, but especially by all of you. Each person you ask for a few dollars is one more person who will know that young women can AND DO get breast cancer. Each person who donates to our auction or writes you a check is one more person who will share with the women in their lives the importance of being aware and proactive in their own breast health.
So I want to express a special thank you to all of you for helping our cause, not just with money, but with your words, with your efforts, and with your support.
In my last post I highlighted Kathy Stewart, Creative Memories Consultant Extraordinaire. This time I want to bring your attention to another one of our three time participants, Heidi Blix, who is a Close To My Heart Consultant. (Heidi's been keeping that info under her hat so she can enjoy the Scrap for Survival for herself! Way to make yourself a priority, Heidi!!!! We love that!) Anyway, Heidi is very generously donating all of the proceeds from her sales during the month of March to YSC Duluth. Isn't that incredible? We are blown away by her generosity! If you are new to Close to My Heart, you have to check out what they have to offer. They have beautiful paper and embellishments and clear stamps to die for! Their products are wonderful whether you're a card maker or a scrap booker. There's truly something for everyone! Check out Heidi's website at www.urcrafty.com and take a look at all of the great March specials too! If you prefer not to order online, Heidi is willing to take phone orders and will still make the donation to YSC Duluth. Heidi's contact information is on the website.
Thank you so much, Heidi! It truly is just getting better all the time!
Happy Scrapping, everyone!
P.S.: We still have seats avalable, so if you know any friends who are on the fence, tell them to quit stalling and come to the best crop around! They won't be sorry!!!
And don't forget to participate in the page challenges, dessert maker challenge, and art bra contest! We can't wait to see what you cook up!
