Greetings fellow scrappers!

I am reading Woman's Day magazine, and guess what I found on page 16? There is a group called Crops of Luv, based in Pheonix. This group creates custom scrapbooks for critically ill children and their families; their volunteers document the kids' special trips and granted wishes (they work with groups like Make-a-Wish, etc). These kids' families send in pictures to the group, and volunteers create the scrapbooks for the kids. It seems that it takes several volunteers to make each book, so it's not like you would have to do the whole book. The group also needs donations, of course. And if you have a die-cutting machine, you can volunteer to cut shapes for the group. I am definately going to get involved it this! And, now I know where my extra supplies will go--I have a set of Disney alpha-stickers, for example, that I was going to put in a scrapbook for a friends' son (but ended up not using).

You can go to cropsofluv.com for more information. Just thought I'd pass this along! I am so excited: just imagine how these books will be cherished by these terminally ill kids and their families!

Thanks for posting this... It is a wonderful thing. I will be glad to help too.
You are right about it helping so much.
I was a member of a local scrap group that had hundreds of women. WE used to have charity crops to raise money for all kinds of charities. We also held many many crops where we got together to put pages in albums for terminally ill members so their childrenn would have them. WE even did t hem after they were gone for years.
We also did it for just anyone in the community that we knew was sick.
Everyone of the recipient families was so touched & felt so much love by these books & pages.
