McGrath Foundation Fundraising

Raffle prize valued at $200
September is here, and now I'm getting into the swing of my Kaszazz fundraising event for the McGrath Foundation. I am holding a card making event at Dilston Hall, Dilston, Tasmania on Sunday October 14th 2012, 1pm-4pm, $10 entry. If you're able to attend you will be making three "pink" cards and enjoying some afternoon tea, with 50% of your entry fees going to the McGrath Foundation. Also, 10% of the sales made at the event will be donated to the McGrath Foundation. I am also running a raffle that will be drawn on the day at this event. Of course, you do not need to be there to win. Tickets are $2 each, with the prize (pictured left) being a Kaszazz hamper valued at $200. All proceeds from the raffle will be donated to the McGrath Foundation. Contact me at or on 0425256777 to purchase some tickets, or to book into my fundraising event.

"Pink" card for sale
If crafting isn't quite your thing but you like the look of handmade cards and would like to support the McGrath Foundation, you may choose to purchase my "pink" card that is for sale through the month of September and the first two weeks of October. These are $5 each, and $1 from every card sold goes to the McGrath Foundation.

For those of you who are unaware, the McGrath Foundation raises money to place Breast Care Nurses throughout regional and rural Australia. These Breast Care Nurses support the women and their families fighting the disease. One nurse costs $300,000 to place for three years, so every little bit donated helps. They also raise awareness of breast cancer in younger women. Breast cancer is not an old woman's disease, and younger women should be vigilantly checking their breasts for lumps and getting them checked out if they're found.

This is such a great cause to support, and I would love to have you all help me to raise money for them. Don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to purchase raffle tickets, the "pink" card, book into the event, or just make a donation.

Happy scrapping, till next time...
