An opportunity to give

My friend Jesssica has such a wonderful heart, I recently got an email from her about a program she is involved in. I wanted to share it with you...

When I worked at Scrapbook Lane a few years ago, one of the things i had the opportunity to do was volunteer hours at Leeza'a Place in Joliet. Leeza's Place is in a few words, a "safe setting for all families who are dealing with loved ones diagnosed with a memory disorder."

One of the things that they do is teach families to scrapbook memories before they are gone. Unfortunately, due to current economic conditions, they do not have a budget to replenish their scrapbook supplies.

That is where you come in. I spoke with one of the gals at Leeza's place this morning about doing a scrapbook supply drive for them and she was thrilled! Do you have more paper than you will ever use? Have you purchased doubles of something? Has your style changed and you often hear yourself saying, "What was I thinking?" Have you ever purchased a set of stickers for one sticker and have no idea what you are going to do with the rest of the sheet? If so, now is your chance to clean out your stash. Over the next couple of weeks, take a few minutes to go through your stash and see if you have any scrapbooking supplies that you would be willing to donate.

Some ideas include:
Patterned Paper

*These items are in greatest need.

Those that would like to help Leeza's place out can contact me. If you would like to help and are going to the crop you can bring things then as Jessica will be at the crop!l

  1. Betsy, I will definitely have some stuff for you - I haven't even been able to get all of my "stuff" back in my room after my reorg! (see it on my blog - !) Since I'm doing crop for the cure on the date of your crop I'll have to get it to you another way. I'll email you later!
