Carol’s Scrap-A-Thon

Hi Everyone!

It's Carol, and I wanted to tell you a little bit about the generosity of Clip It Up by Simply Renee! 

On Saturday, November 13, 2010, I held a Scrap-A-Thon fundraiser to benefit our school district.  After a referendum failed to pass in our school district, all extra-curricular activities had been cut for our three schools.  Parents got together to raise funds in order to bring the the extra-curriculars activities back for one year until a new referendum could be placed on the ballot and successfully pass.  I decided to do my part and hold a Scrap-A-Thon fundraiser!  I solicited many donations, and I was blown away by the generosity of so many companies, including Simply Renee!  The wonderful Clip It Up ladies donated a 36" Ribbon Organizer for our raffles!  Let me tell you, the Scrap-A-Thon attendees went crazy buying tickets for that particular raffle!  Everyone wanted that Ribbon Organizer, and who could blame them!?!  When my youngest daughter and I pulled the name for that raffle, you could have heard a pin drop in the room!  I was very happy to read Holly's name!  She was so excited to win such an amazing prize!  Congratulations Holly!  Hopefully we'll get to see your Ribbon Organizer mounted and all set up in your crafty space!

Thank you again to Simply Renee for their generosity!  I am so grateful!  I am also happy to report that the Scrap-A-Thon event raised $1,100 for our school district's Special Donation Fund!!  ♥
