Crop for a Cause

Is anyone interested in a scrapbooking retreat that will not only help you get your projects done, but also help a worthwhile cause in Nebraska?

I am helping Make-A-Wish spread the word about their "Crop for a Cause" on June 19-20. The proceeds from this 26-hour long scrapbooking marathon are going to help a little boy named Cole fulfill his "wish" of being a cowboy. Cole is 7 years old and fighting lymphoma and they are working to send him to the Bar W Ranch in Whitefish Montana where he'll be able to rope cattle, sing campfire songs, and see a bank robbery reenactment. Feel good about getting projects done, feel good about helping grant wishes!

A few of the retreat highlights are their raffle prizes and food being provided. Not only can you win a ton of scrapbooking supplies, but you will also have a chance to win an iPod Shuffle, a Cricut Personal, and a Cricut Expression. Or, do you have a husband you will want to thank for letting you have a whole weekend to yourself? Another raffle item is an autographed football and two tickets to Coach Pelini's Big Red Kickoff Dinner. This is a fundraiser the Husker football coaches do for Make-A-Wish each July. All your meals and snacks are also being provided (Panera, Famous Dave's, the Cookie Company, and more!)

So, if you want to get a jump start on the summer, send in your registration for "Crop for a Cause".

A flyer with more information and registration form is attached or visit https://sites.google.com/site/makeawishcropforacause/.

Happy scrapping!

Sounds like a great cause! Too bad I don't scrap book. I hope they get a lot of participants.
