Volunteers in Action!

On Columbus Day Weekend Elena and Sheila attended Scrapbook Expo in Ontario, CA. They passed out Fairy Fly Bys, shared the good news about Scrapbook Royalty's charitable works, and helped host the crops both days of the event.

Have you ever thought about volunteering for charity?

Scrapbook Royalty is always searching for a few good volunteers. You don't have to be local to Southern California to participate and you don't even need to be a crafter! You just have to have a desire to help others and the ability to make a small (or big if you want to) commitment. Sometimes we need talented crafters to create something for us, like thank you cards for sponsors -- you'll get a one-time call to action. Other times we need more administrative or professional tasks done, like accounting services, that may be long-term commitments. You tell us what you can offer, what your skills are and then our volunteer coordinator will contact you with volunteer opportunities as they come up. Send us an email at to obtain a volunteer questionnaire and please, let us know if you have any questions!! We appreciate any and all help from our volunteers!!

To thank our local volunteers, Elena arranged a class for our volunteers. I drove down to San Diego and taught a little wall hanging with Scrapbook Royalty colors to the volunteers who were able to come out the crafting night -- we had a blast!!

Margie Romney-Aslett may be headed out here to teach another Volunteer Appreciation Class soon!! So besides the reward of feeling great after you've done charity work, there are other fun benefits for being a Scrapbook Royalty volunteer!
