Crop Scrapbooking Fundraiser for hurting kids and animals!

Help raise money for Second Chance with Saving Grace's foster/adoption program by scrapbooking.

For Immediate Release Everywhere - To raise money for its foster/adoption program, Second Chance with Saving Grace is reaching out to people with a unique form of self-help – scrapbooking.

"Many people are facing tough times," said Dr. Diane Dike, co-founder with her husband, Paul, of SCwSG, a nonprofit organization that helps hurting people and animals. "Scrapbooking is a healthy way to connect with friends and family, lifting our spirits."

At a recent SCwSG retreat, volunteers talked about the many benefits of scrapbooking, including memory support, increasing self-esteem, self-expression, bringing friends and family closer, and offering a break from the stress of everyday living.

"We found taking the time to scrapbook renewed our friendships, released anxiety, and offered a therapeutic way of working through life's challenges," Dike said. "We also think it makes a fun way to raise funds while helping hurting people and animals."

SCwSG has teamed with Prima Marketing, Inc., of California for this current fundraiser. Prima's scrapbooking premium products and packaging are environmentally responsible, with most flowers and embellishments acid- and lignin-free, and using other renewable resources, Intra said.

"SCwSG is a perfect fit and the place we want to send help," said Pom Intra owner of Prima.

For a minimum donation of $200, people will get a Prima Crop Kit that retails for $500. Each group or individual that participates will receive at least: 240 sheets of scrapbooking paper, two big bags of flower petals, one roll of lace; 20 crystal centers, 20 crystal swirls and a free PDF file to help promote their event.

"This fundraiser will help us raise money for a much needed van and playground for our foster/adoption program," Dike said. "So relax, de-stress and cherish your memories while helping hurting people and animals."

To participate, send a check made out to SCwSG to: Michael Stephens, Prima Marketing, Inc., 5564 Edison Ave., Chino, CA 91710-6936. For questions, a consultant's help or more details please contact Michael Stephens at: 909-627-5532 ext. 203.
