Papercrafting supply donation for Cross Lake, Manitoba



A local radio station in Winnipeg, Virgin 103.1 FM, is asking for donations of arts and crafts supplies to be flown up north to a community called Cross Lake. Cross Lake Cree Nation (Pimicikamak) officials have declared a state of emergency due to a great number of suicides and attempted suicides in their community since December.

"six suicides since December and 140 attempts in the last two weeks alone"

As soon as I heard this, I knew I could tidy up my scraproom a bit and destash some supplies! I am a firm believer in the therapeutic healing that crafting can provide. This area may not have a local scrapbook store but I certainly could provide some paper, adhesive, stickers and diecuts.

(Anyone else cut multiples of a Cricut cut and then just stuff them in a drawer? Am I the only one who cuts out something because it is pretty and then stuff it in a drawer?)


I am happy to say that drawer has been emptied and will soon be flown up North to a town in crisis. If my items give even one person the joy they have provided me, I will be so happy.

Here is a link with more info on their supply drive - Virgin 103.1.
