We Heart Haiti...

Hi Everyone, I am happy to announce yet another Charity Challenge The Scrappy Tree is sponsoring. It has several elements to it and hopefully one of them speak to you and encourage you to take part.

We are working to support Save the Children- Haiti Relief and in turn, hope to get you thinking about what you can do.

On January 12, 2010 Haiti suffered from one of the worst natural disasters ever and they continue to suffer. Save the Children, among many other organizations, has vowed to help them through this difficult time and bring Hope to Haiti...but they can only do it with continued support from those of us more fortunate.

The Scrappy Tree has designed three ways to encourage you to participate and help.

First up, for sale on our Etsy.com store, our Paper Hearts for Hope-Candy Grams. For $5.00 (USD), we will ship to anyone, in the US or the UK,and it will include your message, inside a felt heart envelope with heart shaped card and valentine sucker enclosed.

Next, we will be auctioning off a wide variety of items created and donated by our friends in the craft world. We think there will be something for everyone, so please stop by and check it out and please help us spread the word. Below are a few sneak peeks;

Mini AlbumFelt Heart embellishment

12 x 12 painted and embellished canvas

Gem and Foil Heart bracelet

Hand-Dyed Toddler T-shirt

Canvas Wall Hanging

Heart Embellished Wood Frame

And there are many more coming, we are just getting started! New items will be added January 27th and continue to be added until Valentines Day.

Lastly, and perhaps the most fun for you all, is our Create A Heart Challenge.

In typical Scrappy Tree fashion, we don't want to hinder your creative flare, so create a Heart Project, of ANY KIND and upload it here to submit Or to our Scrappy Community site, under, Challenge for Charity Group. The contest will close February 13th at 10:00pm PST.

Now the awesome prizes: First The Scrappy Tree will donate $50 dollars in your name to Save the Children- Haiti Relief.

Next, we will brag about you a lot :) But wait, there's more...

And Charee and Diane over at Graphic 45 have generously pulled together some of their awesome product to shower on the winner, see the pics below:

There are two 12 x 12 Pattern paper stacks, a cool envelope mini journal book and some of the coolest new embellishments, chipboard buttons, graphic 45 style paper flowers and beautiful ribbons and lace.

We also have some really fun and wonderful giveaways to share, so make sure you become a follower, stop in here often and find and follow us on Facebook and Twitter, where other giveaways will be offered.

*Please note, all net proceeds from all three above events will be donated to Save the Children- Haiti Relief.

~If you would like to donate your Heart project for the auction, please contact us via email at thescrappytree@hotmail.com, with your name, and details of your project, including size, color,etc. and attach a few pictures.

Thank you for your support.

Just a suggestion - but you put the name of the person who created the works that are donated. That may help people bid even more if they can get a piece by a favorite friend or artist.
