Join ScrapFest & Scrapbook and Cards Today to “BRING A SMILE TO A CHILD!" at ScrapFest in Kitchener!!

We are looking for birthday cards for children. These donated cards will be sent to children’s hospitals across Canada so that every child receives a special card on their birthday from hospital staff! With each card donation, your name will be entered into a draw for an amazing Scrapbook & Cards Today prize. Cards can be delivered to SCT at their booth at ScrapFest in Kitchener.

Ladies, I am going to take some time out of preparing for ScrapFest in Kitchener to make a couple of cards for this great cause over the weekend. Please find the time to do the same. Lets all help put a smile on a child's face! What could possibly be better than this?

Thank you ladies for coming up with the forum posting incentive!!! Now I can read some posts!!!!

I really appreciate the program of the card making challenge to your participants. The children will be blessed to receive a card while in hospital.

I would love to see some of the cards that get handed in. Would it be possible to have the magazine display them on the booth walls in a rotating fashion as they are handed in.

I am sure you will receive many. One of my friends has made at least 7 before the incentive posting was even announced. I have a few made too. I have all boys/men in my world, so I will have a group of teenaged young kids birthday cards made.

That is what I am really excited about is the opportunity to few the cards made at the show.

Two other things I am looking forward to is how well our host Karen will make the friday night crop ROCK.... and my teacher for the classes I have signed up for. She has been teasing us for the last few weeks now on her classes and I feel like a grade 1 kid going to my first day of school.

Thanks for this big event in our neighbourhood!!!!

Thank you so much Lisa for posting this here.

Scrapbook & Cards Today will be continuning our efforts to bring handmade cards to children in our "Bring a Smile to a Child" campaign. Please bring a birthday or seasonal card to our booth where they will be displayed and after ScrapFest will be donated to children's hospitals across Canada. How wonderful for hospital staff to be able to provide handmade cards to children on their birthdays or to the families going through a rough time.

Sometimes just a little something special can brighten a day!

Thank you ladies!!!! Kerry & I can't wait to see everyone!! Very Happy


Catherine

Yikes!!!
