I would like to ask you all for your support in making a small donation to help one of my special customers in her goal to provide scrapbooking supplies for remote communities in the Mornington Island area. Shelly works within the communties to encourage the value of family and life through her scrapbook pages with them.
It would be appreciated if you could donate some scrapbooking goods to help Shelly. I know we all have something in our stash we could give her. I've already collected a box of papers for her and any donation from you all would be much appreciated.
I will have a washing basket at work for your donations and it would be appreciated if you could drop them into the shop by 22nd September 2012.
I have organized some working bee days and I will be bringing my punches, embossing folders and die cuts along for everyone to use or you can bring your own favourites, along with some scraps from your stash and we will create some pieces for scrapbooking. Any help would be appreciated. Just call the shop on 55395188 to let us know your comming.
Working Bee Days from 10am onwards

Shelly Letter (Sorry the Letterhead from Quota would not copy and paste)
22nd August, 2012
Quota International is a Community Service Group and the Gold Coast Club is a member of the 30th District.
Last year, as Governor of the District, my project was to support the indigenous community on Mornington Island with the assistance of the Mornington Island PCYC.
Part of the PCYC program is to run scrapbooking classes for the women on the Island to develop and enhance their sense of family. From donations throughout the 30th District last year, funds have been used to purchase scrapbooks and various other items have also been donated.
All these items are being sent up to Mornington Island either at the end of September or in early October and hopefully I will also be going up to help with the classes
If you have any unwanted supplies or items that you would like to donate, please drop them in to The Stampers Hut.
A very big thank-you to Karen for her help with this initiative.
