Helping Hands & Mending Hearts Update

We had a little set back in getting everything sorted and ready to go, my husband had a heart attack, Thursday morning. Thank God for taking care of him and protecting him.

He was life-flighted to Freeman Hospital. They took very good care of him. He is home and doing great. Just taking things slow and easy.

We have been getting a lot of donations, I will provide a list of the names of all the companies and people who make donations, please remember to support these companies in the future.
If you have some extra supplies you would like to donate, including stickers, paper, cardstock,(even usable scraps) scissors, punches, tools, nice, slightly used items you would like to share, please bring them by or send the items to;

Show Me Scrapbooking,
2105 Hazel Ave,
Carthage, MO 64836.
I have an area already set up in the store and all proceeds from these items will be donated to Helping Hands and Mending Hearts.

If you know someone who has lost their scrapbooking things due to the recent tornados or wants to begin a scrapbook to help in the healing process please send them our way. This is for anyone in the area who was affected by a tornado not just the one in Joplin.

My store hours are a little mixed up right now with my husband on the mend, so please call before you come the store phone is 417-358-5400.

Below are pictures of some of the things that we have to help.
 



Remember all proceeds from our Friday Night Crops will go toward helping those who lost so much from these disasters.

Let's Help

May 2011
Attention All Scrapbookers:

Sometimes doing a little thing during a crisis is enough to help brighten a persons day or to make a difference to just one person.

Although most of the people in the area who lost so much are thinking about the big things right now, and will continue to in the next few weeks and months. Someday things will slow down and lives will begin to rebuild. The people of this area who have been through these storms will never be the same, we know that with the help of God, family and friends we will make it through these difficult times.

Show Me Scrapbooking is setting up a large area in the store to help anyone who may have lost their scrapbook supplies due to the tornado. If anyone who was directly effected by the tornados wants to start a memory album, please come in and get started, these supplies will be free of charge, we will be doing this on an honor system. (Some limits may apply)
Sometimes scrapbooking can be very healing therapy.

We have already started giving out some things, we will be donating a large portion of our product and we have heard from several companies and individuals who will be donating supplies. If you have things you wish to donate please bring them or send them to the store at 2105 Hazel Ave in Carthage our phone number is 417-358-5400 my home phone is 417-358-8026, if there is no answer please leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible. Please remember we will not be charging for these supplies.

We will also be making up some kits in the near future. The proceeds from the kits and from the Friday Night Crops will be going to help tornado victims in this area.

Now is the time for us to unite, perhaps just as one person or one small business we won’t be able to make a very big difference but if we pull together with love and kindness, we may be able to make a difference in many peoples lives.

Thank You and God Bless You,
