Welcome everyone to our "YMBD Gives Back" National Scrapbooking Day Online Crop! We are so glad you joined us and are thrilled that you are going to help us "Give Back"! Official crop kickoff is 7pm EST tonight (Friday May 1st) and runs all weekend long! Deadline for all crop submissions is Midnight EST on Tuesday, May 5th.
So how is YMBD "Giving Back" you ask? Well.... The last time we "gave back" we colaborated as a group to make "Cards for Heros", which is a US based organization supporting US Military Troups. During that time, there were several requests wanting to support a Canadian cause next, and I promised we would!
So here's the story... This May marks the 6th year of the anniversary that we lost my Dad to cancer. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer on April 1st, 2003 and passed away only 5 weeks later (3 days shy of his 57th birthday). The sad part is, I really don't think I know anyone who's life has not been touched by cancer in some way or another. And we all need to work together to help find a cure. And YMBD is going to do that by donating proceeds from this weekend's crop to the Canadian Cancer Society. It really doesn't matter in the long run, which cancer society gets our funds, because any breakthroughs anywhere will benefit everyone around the world! And I know together we can all make a difference!
SO COME ON OVER AND SCRAP THE WEEKEND AWAY---ALL WHILE GIVING MONEY TO A GREAT CAUSE!!!!
