A Scrappin' Fundraiser

WHAT : Scrap, Share and Shop for a Cause
WHEN: March 8, 2008 (Saturday), from 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
WHERE: Centro Montessori, 49 Xavierville Avenue, Loyola Heights, QC
WHY: To benefit the Carmelite nuns of Sta. Ignacia, Tarlac. The funds raised will go to finishing the construction of their chapel which currently lacks walls and a permanent roof.

1. Simply join us on March 8 for a day of scrapbooking, sharing of ideas and techniques, and shopping for scrapbooking goodies. Invite your friends, scrappers or otherwise, to be with us on the day.

2. Buy tickets! For only P150, you get a catered lunch and merienda, the opportunity to win exciting raffle prizes, buy scrapbooking items at cost (or less), and watch demos from the best scrapbookers in the country. If you can't attend but buy tickets, your P150 still goes to charity.

3. Make everyday cards (any day theme cards). These cards will be used by the Carmelite nuns to reach out to other potential donors. Cards will be collected starting March 8 to April 30, 2008. Envelopes will be provided, so you need to make your cards fit the size 6 of the baronial envelopes (5X6 inches actual size of the envelope). Make your cards no more than 4 3/4" x 5 3/4" inches in size. For every 5 cards donated, you'll be entitled to a raffle of some scrapping goodies -our way of saying thank you for your support.

4. Refer individuals and corporations that might be interested in giving donations so the Carmelite nuns can write directly to them. All donations, in cash or kind, are tax-deductible.

5. Donate scrapbooking materials that can be included in the auction. All auction earnings will go to the fund. We have many generous individuals who have shared their blessings with us.

6. Bid in the auction of scrapbooking materials. The starting prices are at 50%-60% off retail price. As all auctions go, the item will go to the highest bidder. There will a P50 increment in the bidding. All auction proceeds will go to the fund.
