Scrap for Yaz - This Saturday

Scrap for Yaz is happening this Saturday! What is it? Well, it is a big event for Yasminah’s Gift of Hope happening on Saturday in Parramatta.

“SCRAP FOR YAZ If you are in NSW we invite you to join us next Saturday the 9th of October at the Mercure Hotel Parramatta between 9am - 4pm for a day of fun! Help us decorate journals to provide to families with children in Neonatal Intensive Care or dealing with the loss of their baby. Even if you aren't creative there are still ways that you can get involved. “

Since October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month YGOH will be doing a few things to help out. Even if you can’t attend Scrap For Yaz there are other things you can do.

- YGOH is holding an auction at the end of the month on facebook to help raise fund to take this program to more hospitals. If you have a business which you would like to donate something from to be auctioned off it would be a great help.

- You could donate to help fund the journals, either money or scrapbooking supplies.

- Link to YGOH on facebook so your friends can hear about them too. You never know who might be in a position to go or help out in some way.

- Spread the word any other way you can think of, email, facebook, twitter, blogs, anything.

I will be there on Saturday selling copies of my book and making journals. 10% of my royalty from every book sold is donated directly to Yasminah’s Gift of Hope.

So if you can, we’d love to see you there.

  1. Thank you so much for posting about this; this just what I need right now, somewhere to pass on all my excess scrapping materials without the guilt of having thrown them out! I'm so glad that something that will make so little impact on me will have a positive impact on someone else. A -xxx-
