"The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy." ~Streep

Scrap Pink is in a little over one week and we are all so excited to play such a special part in the fight against breast cancer. Most of us here have had our lives touched by this horrible disease, whether through family or friends, and we know many of you have endured alongside mothers, sisters, daughters and friends. Because breast cancer effects so many, we want to allow for every opportunity we can to support wonderful organizations like Susan G. Koman for the Cure.

We still have a few spaces available for the Scrap Pink Crop. In addition to a fabulous day of scrapbooking and spending time together, a portion of each crop fee will be donated to Komen for the Cure. We will also be hosting a luminaria ceremony after dark to show support for the victims and survivors of this disease. (Crop is Saturday, September 27th from 10am-2am. Please call us if you have questions or want to sign up!)

If you want to contribute even more it's as easy as buying a raffle ticket! We were surprised with a very generous donation from the brand new Hilton Garden Inn in Beavercreek and we are raffling off this fabulous prize during Scrap Pink! Raffle tickets are only $1 each or get 6 for just $5! All proceeds will go to to Komen for the Cure! The winner will receive a one night stay in a romantic suite at the Hilton Garden Inn, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and more! There is no limit to the number of ticket you may purchase and you do not have the be present to win! This is such a simple way to show your support for breast cancer research and treatment and you never know... you may be the winner! (Drawing will be held at 2pm on Saturday, September 27th. Winner will be notified immediately.)
Breast cancer makes an impression on all of us in ways big and small. We can fight back just as hard. Scrap Pink gives us the opportunity to combine something we love with a cause we feel so strongly about. Let's take this chance to come together with our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends to enjoy our time together and lend our strength to the battle against breast cancer.
