Just quick apology for sending two newletters out tonight. I noticed a typo in the expiry date of the Photo Express coupon and I wanted to make sure that everyone got the correct coupon. Please make sure you print the coupon from the "RESEND" newsletter which is the second newsletter sent out.

We are very excited that Scrapbooks & Cards Today has come on board as an event sponsor!!! They are donating a copy of their Fall 2008 issue to each of the goodie bags for our registered crop seat holders, and they are sponsoring a giveaway. Details are below:

In September, 2007, Scrapbook & Cards Today launched the "Bring a Smile to a Child" campaign in time to support Canada's Scrapbooking Crop for Kids. They asked paper crafters everywhere to make and donate birthday cards, which were then distributed to Children's Hospitals across Canada. Their goal was to ensure that each hospitalized child received a card from hospital staff or caregivers on their birthday. Well, the campaign was SUCH a success that they have decided to continue it throughout 2008. They have now collected over 1,000 cards, and they are still going strong. They would love your help with this campaign! Please make and donate a child's birthday card and drop if off at the BC Crop for Kids regstration/info desk on the weekend of the event. For each card made you will receive a draw ticket for a chance to win a subscription to Scrapbook & Cards Today and other wonderful prizes from their sponsors!

All birthday cards handed in on the weekend of the event will be given to BC Children's Hospital Foundation for the children who use the hospital's facilities.
