Lose Weight, Fight Hunger

Weight Watchers is starting their Lose For Good Campaign again this fall -- get healthy and help fight hunger.

Every pound you lose equals a world of good

From August 30 through October 17 Weight Watchers will donate up to $1 million to feed children and families who need it. Learn more on the Lose For Good website.

I'll be participating so let's cheer each other along and do a world of good!

Wanna do your own food drive to fight hunger in your area? Here are some ideas on how to collect food and tie it to crafting:

  • Host a crop at your house. Ask participants to each bring a canned good to your crop.
  • Ask your local scrapbook or crafting store if you can set up a food donation box in their store. They can promote your food drive via their website and newsletter.
  • Set up a swap box at your local scrapbook store, a retreat, or at your own crop night--crafters can "purchase" items from the swap box with a canned food item.
  • For more ideas, check out Scrapbook Royalty's Feeding Our Communities effort, in conjunction with the Fiskateers, earlier this year.
Just passing along a little charity info for ya!

Help Us Win $10K from The Christie Cookie

The Christie Cookie is giving away $25,000 split among three top charities!! They are having a contest and we NEED YOUR HELP to win!!

Go HERE to nominate Scrapbook Royalty to win the $10,000 first prize!!

We can certainly use this money to help us raise money for other worthy causes. We need a new laptop to use at events (ours is falling apart), our storage facility fees need paying, we need shelving for our storage center, and we'd love to hire someone to revamp our website and registration database as well as an accountant. This money could certainly free us up to do more on the charity side of things (versus all that admin stuff) as well as help us get some of the professional help we've been seeking!!

To nominate Scrapbook Royalty, go HERE and enter in the following:

CHARITY NAME: Scrapbook Royalty

Check The Christie Cookie out on Facebook:

The contest deadline is October 15, 2009 so spread the word to friends, family, and fellow charity minded crafters to help us win the prize. Thank you in advance!!

a bit of inspiration....

It's Elena, back from CHA and the World's Largest Crop Attempt! I have so much to post and share about the trip and crop but am finding that I really need to share something else first....

I posted about this art doll on my blog. I will put the less emotional version on here...

Blessings and Hope

This is what I am filled with because I received the most amazing book in the mail today.
You can help fight Ovarian Cancer by purchasing raffle tickets for $5 each or 6 for $20.

You can help fight Ovarian Cancer by purchasing your own copy of this little book $25.95 or $34.95 for the hard cover.


Two easy steps-

1) Just add this picture:

and this link:

To your blog, or send it out in an email.

2) Then leave a comment here with the words "I shared The Ties That Bind" and a way to contact you if you win.

The raffle is going on till end of September. With your help we can reach our goal of $10,000 raised through this amazing doll!
