Non-Raffle to Benefit Australian Bushfire Victims & Shout Out

I'm sure you've all heard about the devestating fires that have claimed so many lives and properties in Australia. Our hearts go out to the families who have been affected and we offer up prayers for them...but there's more that we can do to help!! Lisa and Debbie are working to get a Non-Raffle benefit up at Splitcoast Stampers, starting in March. But they need help getting the ball rolling.

Would you be willing to donate supplies, gift certificates or handmade items for the non-raffle? All proceeds will go directly to the Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfires Appeal. They need to have pictures in to SCS by Feb. 28...this Saturday, so they can start it the first of March. Donors will mail the prizes directly to the winners. Lisa explains all this in more detail on her blog. Please go read her post or you can email her directly at lhjulberg@charter.net with any questions you might have. Let's all pull together and to help out this worthy cause.

{A Quick Shout Out}

HAVE YOU SEEN THESE?! Nicole is soon releasing her new stamp line, so hop on over to her BLOG and check out some of the sneek peeks she's got going on, and there's lots more that she hasn't posted on her blog yet. I think it's so awesome to watch a fellow stamper persue her dream and start her own stamp line! So let's all hop over there and leave her some encouraging words!! :)

Kris thanks for spreading the word on this.... this has affected so many people in Australia, not just those in the area hit. Emotionally, it has taken its toll - but it is also such a blessing to see the support and assistance that has been given so generously. We drove through this area when in Victoria in January and to look at my photos now and see what is being shown on the net and news is just devastating. All the help that can come their way will definately be appreciated. Thank you.

:) Marcia
