Making a Difference Together

This is amazing to me.  
February's Share the Love campaign was an incredible success! With donations from sales of our Share the Love stamp set combined with other donations made during February, we raised more than $68,000 for Operation Smile™—that means that together we donated enough to fund 284 operations to repair cleft lips and palates!

Our profoundest thanks go to each of you who helped us make a difference in the lives of so many children and their families.

Thank you all for sharing the LOVE!!!

Happy Scrappin',

Patriots Penn and Voice Of Democracy Scholarship awards

Veterans Of Foreign Wars (VFW) National Scholarship Programs
Each year more than 125,000 students in grades 6-8 enter the VFW’s Patriot’s Pen youth essay contest. The first-place winner from each state competes for national awards totaling $50,000, with each first-place state winner receiving a minimum of $500 at the national level. The national first-place winner wins $5,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C.
The essay contest encourages young minds to examine America’s history, along with their own experiences in modern American society, by drafting a 300- to 400-word essay, expressing their views based on a patriotic theme chosen by the VFW Commander-in-Chief.
Due October 31, 2016

VOICE OF DEMOCRACY Scholarship for 9-12 grades

I hope you will pass this information on to all of your friends and family that have students in the 6-8th grades or the 9-12th grades.  Give them time to think about the themes and really work on some great essays.
