We have some exciting news to share with all of you. Scrap Happy is SO pleased & excited to tell you we will be participating in the Operation Write Home project. If you are unfamiliar with Operation Write Home, it is an organization that collects handmade cards from around the country and sends them in care packages to the troops overseas. They can be cards to the troops or blank cards for the troops to send home to their loved ones. Either is more than welcome.
To help you get started, Scrap Happy will be hosting a FREE card class on Sunday, June 19th @ 6pm. This will be taught by Susie and all the cards you make will be donated to the troops. Then, the following Sunday, June 26th, you can come into the store anytime from 12-6 to make your own cards to donate. Both of these are free, however, we would appreciate if you would still sign up, either online or at the store, so we can keep track of supplies, etc.
If you can't make it to either event, we will still be an official "drop zone" for any and all cards donated by you, up until July 2nd. That is the deadline as we have to ship these out by the Fourth of July!
If you want to donate your handmade creations, please note there are some simple guidelines to follow when making your cards. These are for the safety and ease of handling of the troops, so please take a look by clicking the "guideline" link above. They are in need of Birthday, Thank You, Missing You, Thinking of You and generic & Blank cards. Especially blank cards so they can write to their loved ones. Also, please include masculine colors and themes, as well.
As if this fabulous organization wasn't enough, IF, and ONLY IF, Scrap Happy donates the most cards during this time YOU the kind, creative, generous person YOU are will be eligible for a chance to win a FREE Cruise 'n Crop on Royal Caribbean, thanks to one of our favorite scrappy companies, We R Memory Keepers! Can you imagine? Not only could you be cruising along in paradise, but scrapping at the same time!! It is almost too much for me bear, I think I am going to faint!...............................................Okay, I have recovered................................................
For more information please check out the Operation Write Home website and we really hope to see you at one of our events to donate to this worthwhile organization!
