Cards for Kids

We had another 'card buffet' set up at our Autumn Crop, this time with a focus on making cards for kids. These are cards that were made to be delivered to the nurses at Children's Hospital, as we've learned the awesome nurses there like to give cards and gifts to their patients.

If you have some kid appropriate cards you'd like to donate with us, please drop them off at the store by next Saturday, Oct. 27. We are also doing a GIFT DRIVE and accepting donations of small gifts suitable for TEENS. All of these items will be used to brighten the day of kids & teens going through some tough times at Children's Hospital.

TODAY- Saturday, Oct. 20 is also the LAST DAY to purchase tickets for the draw baskets we have in the store!  The winners will be drawn after closing!  There are some really great prizes, as you can see below:
Tickets are available for just $1 each and the draw will take place tonight!  There are 9 different prizes, including items for a tea lover, sports fan, camera buff, happy stamper & anyone tickled pink :)  We look forward to sending a generous donation to BC Crop for Kids/ BC Children's Hospital Foundation!

Thanks once again to the following businesses & individuals who donated in various ways to this cause- we so appreciate their generosity!  Special thanks to Tanya for organizing the draw & bake sale for us!  We appreciate all your efforts :)
