Thank You - The Original ScrapBox GivesBack!

First off, THANK YOU all so much for taking the time to read the Safe Mothers, Safe Babies GIFT OF LIFE gift catalog and for entering The Original ScrapBox Gives Back - You Can Too giveaway this past week. Entries have been pouring in since we posted and your comments were heart warming! The founder of Safe Mother, Safe Babies, Jacqueline Cutts has read ALL your comments and she was overwhelmed with your kind words and support! She emailed and called and wanted to say THANK YOU to you all for taking the time to comment and to those who donated or who will still donate.

Note: Jacqui and some volunteers leave today on their long journey to Uganda. We will post an update later on their work this Christmas season to bring hope and light to the people in Uganda. (Read more about the LIGHT THE NIGHT initiative here).

Now, there can only be one winner and we used to generate a random winner from the over 200 entries we received in the last 6 days.

We just called the winner KELLY WILBUR and she was overjoyed to win (she informed me she has never won anything before) and she has chosen the Vanilla Beadboard CraftBox! She also told me she and her husband are purchasing gifts from the GIFT OF LIFE catalog on behalf of some of her extended family for Christmas! What a great way to celebrate this time of year giving.

REMEMBER: While the contest is over, you can STILL donate or purchase a gift on behalf of a loved one here: SAFE Holiday 2011 Gift Catalog!

Since it is the season of giving - we are giving away ANOTHER one of our products: the Limited Edition Work Top ($150 value) in a giveaway that is being run by a popular blog RachelleWrites.

Motivation Monday! CREATE

"The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul. No matter our talents, education, backgrounds or abilities, we each have an inherent wish to create something that did not exist before. Everyone can create. You don’t need money, position, or influence in order to create something of substance or beauty. You might say, I am not the creative type. If that is how you feel, think again. Creation is your opportunity in this life….. Start small. Creativity does not require a brush, a pen, or the keys of a piano. Don’t let the voice of critics paralyze you. You will make the World a better place. Improve, beautify, extend, smile, cultivate, develop, create." ~ Dieter F. Uchtdorf

Original ScrapBox Gives Back -You Can Give Too!

Happy December - The Month of Giving!

We at The Original ScrapBox wanted to let you all know about an opportunity where you could make a HUGE difference in the lives of women, children and families all the way across the world in Africa. We support a Non Profit Organization: Safe Mother, Safe Babies that is making a difference in rural Uganda, but they can't do it alone. They need your help!

"Every year, more than 360 thousand women and 3 million babies die during childbirth, while millions more are injured. The causes of maternal and neonatal death are largely preventable if women can access timely and appropriate medical care. Yet, in developing countries like Uganda, such care is lacking. Safe Mothers, Safe Babies (SAFE) seeks to improve these conditions through demand-driven, collaborative, sustainable, and scalable means... The Safe Mothers, Safe Babies Holiday Gift Catalog, Gift of Life, provides an opportunity for individuals to join SAFE in  working with rural Ugandan women and their families to give the “gift of life,” while simultaneously checking some holiday shopping purchases off the to-do list. For each purchase, you can designate an individual who the gift has been purchased to honor. SAFE will then send them a personalized thank you card, detailing the life-saving gift you made on their behalf and all that it will accomplish."

Giveaway Details: 
So what we want YOU all to do is take a look at their holiday gift catalog and tell us in the Google Doc below which project is your favorite and you will be entered into The Original ScrapBox Gives Back Giveaway, where the winner we randomly select can choose between a Black or White CraftBox ($945 value) OR an EZ View Desk ($695 value).


NOTE: No donation is required as part of your entry, but if you are able to make a donation - all amounts are very appreciated. 

Donations can be send to: 
Safe Mothers, Safe Babies
Box 2205
Provo, UT 84606
Or donations can be made via phone: (801) 428-7827
