The Unforgettables Crop for Kids

Wanted to bring some attention to an upcoming crop, being held in CA, to raise donations for The Unforgettables Foundation. The Foundation is a non-profit charity that raises money to help grieving families with expenses after a child has died. This is going to be a large two-day event with raffles for amazing prizes (the big prize is a free photo shoot with Tara Whitney, who is a fantastic photographer) and lots of scrapbooking! You can view full details at Karen Wilson's blog but here are the basics: Date: January 26, 2008 9:30 a.m. - January 27, 2008 2:00 a.m. Cost: $100 per scrapbooker + a donation of at least $100 for TUF (prizes for the higest donations will be awarded!) Cost covers 2 meals, t-shirt, goodie bag & more! Lots of opportunity drawings will be held to win retreat weekends with friends - and so much more! Location: Redlands, California Contact: Karen Wilson - theunforgettablesfoundation@verizon.net if you would like to register or sponsor our event. Availability: 200 crop spaces Fundraising Goal: $50,000Please visit our website for more information about what we do to help grieving families after the death of their child. http://www.theunforgettables.com/ I'm talking with one of my local scrapbooking stores to see if they'd like to host a smaller one-day event. I'll provide more details as those plans solidify. I can hardly imagine the pain associated with losing a child, it makes me weep to even consider it. While nothing could ease such the ache that would come from losing a child, this, at the very least, is a way to help alleviate some of the financial burden. So if you live in the Redlands (and hopefully New England) areas, consider signing up, donating, or participating in some way!
