Tickets are selling and donations are rolling in the door. Once again Crop for Kids is shaping up to be a sensational day. I don't want to give away too many surprises, but let me give you a little taste of what you'll get in your goodie bag when you arrive at the hall: a pack of American Crafts thickers, chipboard embellishments, bling, paper, lollies, personal items and discount vouchers. I think that's worth the entry fee right there!

As for raffle prizes, we've got some great ones this year. But we'll keep them a secret until the day. It's not too late to get donations to us either. We can take donations up until March 29th. Whether you're a business or an individual you can donate items. Even if you can't give much, every bit helps and we can make up hampers with smaller items. Just email us at and we'll tell you where you can send it. A big thank you to all our sponsors. You can see their names on the left. Please support them where ever possible.

Don't forget we'll be holding a scrapbooking Trash and Treasure at the crop as well. So pull out all those supplies you are never going to use and make some money on them whilst helping to raise even more money for the Royal Children's Hospital. All you need to do is to place the item/s in a clear plastic bag and decide on a price. Bring it to the Trash and Treasure table in the morning and fill out a label to attach to it. Then at the end of the day, you can go back and see if your item/s have sold (and several times through the day to pick up some bargains). 25% of the selling price will be automatically donated to Crop for Kids, and the remaining 75% will be paid to you, except for magazines where Crop for Kids will take 100% of the selling price. Unfortunately we can only accept magazines less than 12 months old this year. We already have a box full of older ones!

Tickets are selling fast, so if you're planning to come and haven't booked yet, do it today!
