Fundraising UPDATE!!!

Updating once again:
My son is up to $102.03 US, which converts to about $159.92 roughly, give or take the exchange rate hehe.

Even better, on Thursday night, we received an email from Tasmanian of the Year 2008, Bruce Englefield, chairman of the "Devil Island Project", who works with the Tassie government to build the enclosures that quarantine the disease free devils, to keep them safe and healthy! He explained to us that while the funds donated to the research will help eventually, that if we were to donate some of the funds to their cause, that there would be more visible, tangible results, and that his name would appear at one of their sites as a sponsor.

I never dreamed that when my son came home that day a few weeks ago, and started telling me what he wanted to do ... well, I didn't realize that he would get so much attention from all over the world! LOL

Thank you again to everyone for your support! Watch for more goodies to come soon!

As promised, I have put together a charity scrap kit to sell for my son. 100% of the profits will be donated by him to the "Save the Tasmanian Devil Appeal", that you can read more about here:

I will post updates regular on the progress of the donations and sales of this kit.

Sweetening The Pot

I have decided to sweeten the pot where this scrap kit is concerned :o)

When you buy this scrap kit, your name will automatically be entered into a draw (yes this includes those that have already gotten the kit), and there will be 3 prizes drawn May 2nd, 2009.

What for you may ask?

1st Place: An "Unlimited License" from me. Every tube, scrap kit or element pack I ever will have access to free of charge.
2nd Place: 2 of my tube packages from AMI, and 2 of my scrap kits
3rd Place: 1 of my tube packs, and 1 of my scrap kits

Prizes are transferable if you can't use them :o)

Thanks for reading everyone, and I hope you enjoy the prizes!

UPDATE: Another pot-sweetener hehe
