Stampin' Out Alzheimers

Just a quick post to share some really exciting news with all of you! I'm heading up a large fundraising event called Stampin' Out Alzheimer's again this year in an effort to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association. Most of you know that this is a cause that is very important to me and I hope that if you're able, you'll help make this event successful. The actual event is a week-long "Pay to Play" Virtual Papercrafting event with tons of scrapbooking, stamping, and other papercrafting challenges, workshops and tutorials. Kicking off May 25, participants will have a full week to take part in the various challenges as well as share their own Alzheimer's stories on the Stampin' Out Alzheimer's website. Papercrafters who participate in the different challenges and class content will be eligible to win various papercrafting related prizes donated from our many generous sponsors (so far we've received over $500 worth of prizes from our sponsors, which will be given away throughout the event). 100% of the proceeds raised during this event will be donated to the Alzheimer's Association to help in their endeavors of research, education and support.

But you don't have to participate in the event or even be a papercrafter to make a difference and donate to this worthwhile cause. If you'd like to make a donation to help us reach our goal of raising $2500 for the Alzheimer's Association, you can click on the "give" button below and donate securely using a credit or debit card or checking account via paypal.

Thank you in advance for your support both in this and in our lives!
