For A Great Cause...

Do you have art or scrap supplies that you no longer need or use? Why not donate them to charity? Here are a few non-profit organizations that will use your supplies to help others:

Operation Scrapbook is a charity that strives to provide Foster Children and children with cancer their own scrapbooking supplies so that they may record their life stories in a meaningful way.

The Child Abuse Preventing Association (CAPA)- helps children and their families heal from the effects of child abuse. Donated scrapbook products are used during art therapy sessions, and to create albums for children when they leave the center.

Make-A-Wish Foundation grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. A wish is granted every 40 minutes in the United States, and volunteers will use your supplies to create meaningful scrapbooks for each wish recipient, documenting the entire experience.

Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) your donated supplies will be put to good use during arts and crafts time at one of their 90 summer camps in the U.S. These camps offer specialize activities for children with limited mobility or who use wheelchairs because of a neuromuscular disease.
