I haven't done much fundraising for Shwachman-Diamond America this past year, so I've decided to donate all the proceeds from sales through my Stampin up! website from now through Christmas to Shwachman-Diamond America. Shwachman-Diamond America has done great things this year. SDA supported the North American Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome Registry whose website went live this year, they supported Camp Sunshine with a small donation, paid expenses for Dr. Harris to present grand rounds at Wake Forest, just approved an $8,000 USD research grant and approved a minimum of $8,000 USD to support the Sixth International Congress on Shwachman-Diamond Syndrome in NYC next year.
SDA would love to donate more to the Congress, but in order to do that, SDA needs to raise more money.
Please consider helping the cause. Stampin Up! Sells great scrapbooking, card making and crafting items. Their products make wonderful Christmas gifts, too! No special promotion code needed..... I will donate all proceeds from on-line sales now through Christmas Day to Shwachman-Diamond America. Just visit http://www.pattiecurran.stampinup.net/ Here's a picture of a card and matching luminary I made over Thanksgiving. I gave a set like this to a friend as a small gift and she loved it! You can learn to make the luminary on my video tutorial website Twosday's Techniques.
