Updated on helping out our friends…

Hi!

Please read my last post HERE on a fun way you can help our Australian friends.  I hope you are able to play.

I know our US scrappers are having a rough time with this economy, and spending the extra money to ship to Austrailia may be tough.  So, I talked to Sarah and we have a plan.  If you would like to mail your projects to my PO Box, I will collect them all and ship them together.  This will make the cost of shipping lower for everyone.  And I will use money I raised at a local card sale at Stamp Your Art Out to cover the shipping.  (Thanks again, Connie!) 

For details on what to create, click HERE.

If you want to ship through me, please mail it by March 1 to this address:

Jennifer McGuire
Aussie Memory Gifts
PO Box 428612
Cincinnati, Ohio 45242

If you want to ship directly over there, you are welcome to – she shares the address there.

Thanks for helping out.  I am sure our friends over there will help.    Hugs!

    Wow, so generous of you to offer to ship in bulk. I’ve emailed Sarah, too, and although I’m not a scrapper, I’m going to attempt to do a few pages and mail them to her. I hope she gets inundated with pages!

  2. You just continue to amaze me. That is exactly why I have always thought of you as the BEST scrapbooker/card-maker EVER!!! Thanks so much for doing this.
    I would love to do an album, however, I have a 4 week old baby and a 6 year old boy so a 12×12 almost completed album is kind of hard for me right now since I pretty much dont have any spare time. Do you know if she will take a mini. Those would be good for boys & girls too.
    Thanks a lot and may God continue to bless you and your beautiful family.
    Hugs,
    Dayami ;)

  3. Consider it done!
    For some reason, I have lots of 12×12 pages from classes that I have never gotten the urge to use! I am so glad they can go to a great cause….

  4. I check your blog often as I just love your style and the way you seem to balance life so well. I live in Victoria, about 20 minutes from the fire region and whilst not directly affected, our world has been greatly impacted. My husband works with foster kids in the region and has had a terrible week with carers losing homes. He is back up there today. Many friends have lost homes and some, their lives… The air here is thick with smoke.
    Then in a moment of quiet I check my fav blogs for a bit of inspriration and see that from the other side of the world you are rallying to make a difference to the people so far from you. My heart is full. Good on you for being authentic and real and willing to stand beside others in their darkest times, even with so much distance between you… what a treasure you all are!

  5. Again, thank you so much. I just knew you and your big heart would help out all those people so badly in need. If you need any extra towards postage please email me.
    Eternally grateful.
    Sue.

    This is so good of you Jennifer!
    I’ll have something in the mail to you Monday that you can send.
    I’ve already emailed Sarah too.
    Thanks again for doing this!!
    Happy Valentine’s — spread the Love!

  8. You are so sweet to do this! I just need to get through this weekend and I think I can focus on getting a few layouts cranked out. Is it okay to post and link to you on my blog? There are a couple of girls who teach with me at the lss that are interested as well. Is there a deadline? We were thinking of putting it out on the newsletter for customers to join us.

    My heart goes out to the Victorian families.
    They are all in my thoughts and prayers.

    You have a very big heart. I too have layouts from swaps that I have never gotten around to using and will get them into the mail to you this week. God bless you!

  10. Jennifer that’s such a generous offer! I’ll certainly give it a go, I’m from Australia but living here in CA and I’ve been shocked at the news coming from home. Thanks for helping out!

    Do you mind if I link to this from my blog too?

  11. Thank you so much for your kind offer Jennifer. I have a batch that I will get out to you today. Please let me know when they arrive and if they are okay. Thanks for doing this.

    Thankyou so much for doing this for us Aussies, we truly appreciate this coming from so far away especially when you have your own causes closer to home.
    Good on ya!
