I'm creating this post as a permanent home for all of the details about the Crop For A Cause event on October 4, 2008. All proceeds from the days activities will be donated to Titian Ministries International. When: October 4, 2008 Time: 9a.m. to 5 p.m. Where: Salvation Army - Meadowlands, 187 Stonechurch Rd. Ancaster Ontario Registration: $40 The goal of the event is to raise funds and awareness for Titian Ministries International, a not-for-profit registered charity founded by Sharon Titian, of Hamilton. Titian Ministries operates a Mission and a Farm in Ghana, Africa that among other things provides a home for orphaned children, and operates a soup kitchen for the elderly. To assist them in their efforts, Titian Ministries will receive ALL proceeds from the Crop For A Cause event. What's Included: Lunch, Door Prizes, Make and Takes, Optional Mini-Workshops, And More! Most imporantly you'll get ample cropping space and dedicated time to get cropping! The day promises to be fun and exciting, giving you a chance to get caught up on some of your outstanding projects (admit it....we all have them!). Optional Mini-Workshops: As an added bonus, we are offering a couple of mini-workshops that will run at the event. Participation in these workshops is optional, and workshop fees are in addition to crop fees. Due to space considerations, workshop participation is restricted to those people attending the full-day crop event. Workshop #1: Friends (2-pagelayout): Celebrate the friends in your life! What would we do without them? The colours and papers from Scenic Route are suitable for boys and girls of any age!! You'll love creating that big bold STAR and trying out the cool "folding" technique that is used in this layout. Class Fee: $20 Workshop #2: Ho Ho Holiday Cards: 10 cute cards, 10 envelopes and LOTS of adorable rub ons and ribbon! Get a head start on your holiday card making! Class Fee: $20 Looking for Some Bargain Supplies? At the Crop For a Cause event, a limited amount of space will be set aside for 'Garage Sale' items. This is the perfect opportunity for you to pick up some supplies at bargain prices, or to 'sell' some of your excess supplies to someone who needs them. All monies raised through sale of garage sale table space will support Titian Ministries International. All Garage Sale Items MUST be related to paper crafting! Option #1: Book a 6x3 table for just $20. You set your prices, man your table etc. and the $20 fee is donated to support Titian Ministries International. Whatever you sell, the money is yours to keep. Option #2: Book a 3x3 table for just $10.

About Titian Ministries International Titian Ministries operates a Mission and a Farm in Ghana, Africa that among otherthings provides a home for orphaned children, and operates a soup kitchen for the elderly.As I'm sure you can appreciate, the same rising fuel and commodity prices that we are facing here at home, are having a serious financial impact on operations at the Mission Farm in Ghana. For example, the cost of a simple bag of rice, a staplefood on the Mission Farm has risen 100% in the last year alone. Titian Ministries has great hopes for expansion in Ghana with plans to construct a medical clinic, a prayer and healing centre, a gas station and a guest house. For the time being however, due to rising prices, the temporary focus is on maintaining those services already established. Monies raised on October 4, will greatly assist them in these efforts.I hope that you'll consider joining us on October 4th to support Titian Ministries International. It's going to be an extremely fun and productive day! How To Register: Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll give you all the details. Space is limited and reserved - so don't hesitate - book your space today.
