Queensland Flood Appeals...

We have all heard the devastating effects the floods are having in Queensland, so much heartbreak for families losing or missing loved ones, losing everything they own, it is just unfathomable...

I just want to post on both Kraft It Up and White With 1 a couple of links for some sites that Sherry Mendozza & Sharryn Thompson have created to help fundraise for the families of Queensland and also a couple of links for monetary donations.

Firstly is the Rising Flood Appeal

"I am asking that you scrap a page that will be appropriate to go into a memory album for a family so that all they need to do is add photos. Hopefully they will have friends and family who can supply them with photos as no doubt they will all be lost too.
If you aren't a scrapbooker, don't worry you won't miss out, you could make a card for a family or a small gift that could also be passed on. I'm sure anything you make will be greatly appreciated by the flood victims."

Please send them too:
Rising Waters

This is for memory gifts ONLY.

You can view more details on the blog that is regularly updated HERE or by using the link above.

Second link is for Your Creative Journey Silent Auction for Queensland Flood Victims.
