THE BIG DAY!!! And we raised...

We had an awesome day at Crop For Kids on 15 March 2008. There were lots of games, raffles, shopping, and scrapbooking that happened on the day. We saw many ladies having a good time, chatting away, meeting new friends, eating and drinking. The committee members were exhausted at the end of the day, but we were really glad we did it. We have photos which we will be posting soon.

We have done a rough count of the money we raised, and we are pleased to announce that we have achieved over the set target.

WE RAISED OVER $11,000!!!!!

We are all extremely pleased with the result. A big THANK YOU to all the SPONSORS (please see navigating panel on left), all the online class instructors, and EVERYONE who came to the event. Without your generous support, we wouldn't have made it.

And to our dedicated committee members and their supportive families, the event wouldn't have come this far. We will be posting the final figures again as soon as we have them.

Some important information for THE DAY :)

Scrapbooking Trash & Treasure

During the crop, we will have a scrapbooking Trash and Treasure table. If you have any scrapbooking products (paper, stamps, embellishments, tools etc) that you would like to sell, please do the following:-

  1. Have each item (or bundle) sealed in a clear plastic bag
  2. Label it clearly with your NAME, CONTACT NUMBER AND SELLING PRICE

When you arrive at the crop, take your sale items to the table marked "Trash and Treasure" and the girls will give you a receipt of each item/bundle. Throughout the day, everyone will be able to purchase items from the table. At the closing of Trash & Treasure, bring your receipt(s) back to the table, and if your items have sold you will be given 75% of the sale price. The remaining 25% will be donated to the Royal Children's Hospital Good Friday Appeal.


There will be at least 3 scrapbooking shops present that day who will set up stands for your shopping pleasure, and to get supplies that you may have forgotten to bring.


We will have snacks, tea/coffee and soft drinks available for gold coin donations. We will also have food available for purchase at lunch time (probably pizza). We will donate ALL profits from the kitchen sales to the Good Friday Appeal. However, if you prefer, you are welcome to bring your own food and drinks.


Sales of food and drink, raffles, Trash & Treasure, games etc can only be paid for with cash. We recommend that you bring plenty of gold coins with you. There is no ATM at the hall, although there is bound to be one somewhere close by.
