Did You Know...

...that Scrapbook Royalty is a 100% volunteer run organization?

Our entire committee, including Founder Elena Etcheverry, are volunteers! None of us are paid for the work we do for Scrapbook Royalty whether it is web design, event planning, fundraising, seeking donations from manufacturers and stores to use as silent auction items, designing make n take for the events, running events, composing our email newsletters...we put in hours and hours of work for free to help benefit all of the different charities we help fundraise for. Some of us volunteer full-time to work on Scrapbook Royalty's events while others help as many hours as they can spare but no matter how much time we put in, we do it because we enjoy helping others.

...that Scrapbook Royalty raises money for OTHER charities?

Scrapbook Royalty has helped over 15 different nonprofits, and some more than once! Our main mission at Scrapbook Royalty is to help raise money and awareness for other charities, nonprofits, worthy causes. At each of our events we invite a representative from the charity we are helping to speak to our attendees about their charity and the work they do. Our goal is not only to raise money of the charity but also to spread the word about their work and their cause all over the world. This helps people who are interested in that cause to find out more about how to help and people who need services from the charity to find them as well.

...that you can host your own Scrapbook Royalty affiliate event?

...that Scrapbook Royalty not only gets help from volunteers but from business, manufacturers, and stores as well?

We could not raise the amount of funds we've raised for charities or put on our royally awesome events without the help of our generous sponsors! From scrapbook supply manufacturers to restaurants and bakeries to consultants to local scrapbook stores to individuals who just love to craft to instructors and designers, Scrapbook Royalty has been very fortunate to have encountered a group of immensely generous sponsors who have had a hand in raising thousands of dollars for charities all over the globe.
