Kim here with a post today on a cause that has become near and dear to Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine’s team.
You may have already noticed on our blog and Facebook page; a link to “Hope for Haiti”. We also have a full page dedicated to the cause in our magazine, in hopes that OUR scrapbooking community can rally together and help raise the funds required to build an ART ROOM for the under privileged children living in the outskirts of Cap Haitien.
This art room would be a roof-top adjunct to a school being built with the help of volunteers like our team member Alison Orthner. She has joined forces with LIVE DIFFERENT and CANADIAN SCRAPBOOKER magazine in efforts to make this dream become a reality. A place where these children can leave the hardships of their life for a short time and create beautiful art and music. Every child should be so lucky!
Any donation is welcome and can easily be made online. Donations over $20 will get a tax receipt and donations over $35 will receive a small canvas banner. These banners are for YOU to create art to be sent back to Haiti to be hung for the children to enjoy. How colourful and cheerful they will be.
I want to quickly share what I did with one of my 3 banners. I used some of my favourite scrapbooking supplies on this one from Sizzix, Clearsnap and Tombow, but may pull out some fabric and sew on another. A simple, happy project that I hope will be well received!
$20,000 is a big goal! With your help we can make this happen! For more information or clarification on any details, please let us know!
