My friend Yatie is calling out for help in her charity event. Here are the details. I hope that all my scrapper friends can come forward to help her. Here are the details and more in her blog here.
WE NEED YOUR HELP!!!
NASOM Alor Setar will be taking part in the Charity Carnival being held by the Sultanah Bahiyah Foundation in May. We at NASOM Alor Setar have decided to get the kids to make greeting cards to sell at our booth to raise some money for the center. We desperately need some stash URGENTLY for the kids to start making cards.
What is NASOM?
NASOM stands for The National Autism Society of Malaysia. It is a non-profit, non-governmental welfare organisation which was formed in 1986 by a group of parents and professionals. NASOM is a national voluntary charitable organisation and aims at providing education, help, care and protection for people with autism and their family members.
What is the Charity Carnival?
The Charity Carnival is a yearly event that the Sultanah Bahiyah Foundation holds to raise money and NASOM Alor Setar has secured a booth to promote autism awareness to the public, to let people know that there is a special center they can send their kids to, as well as to raise money.
What can I do to help?
If you have some stash that are begging to be put to better use towards a worthy cause, why not consider making direct product donations for the usage of the kids at NASOM Alor Setar?
What can I donate?
There are two ways you can donate:
- cardstock (pre-cut into 6x12 for easier shipping)
- patterned papers (pre-cut into 6x12 for easier shipping)
- embellishment (buttons, flowers, stickers, alphas, ribbons, chipboard elements, wordings e.g. Happy Birthday, Congratulations, Have A Nice Day etc...)
If you have a die cut machine, you can just die cut some elements like flowers using different materials e.g. cardstock, patterned papers, felt, chipboard etc...
You can make the cards yourself and donate to us so that we can sell them at the Carnival, and help us raise some funds.
How do I send the items?
You can send your donations to:
NASOM Charity Cards
C/O Yatie Tajudin
1055-C Jalan Tunku Abdul Halim,

All packages must reach me no later than 8th May 2010 to give time for the kids to put together the cards. If you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know that you've donated some stash, I would be grateful so that I can keep a look out for the packages and confirm receipt.
