This is something I heard about on TwoPeas and is something that I'm currently working on. If you'd like to help the cause or know someone who would, check out their website! :)
This is a program that donates 8x8 and 12x12 pre-made scrapbook layouts to foster children and their families. If you have some extra scrap supplies that you're not sure what to do with, why not make a quick couple pages and send them over to them.
Taken from their website:
"Recently, California's Department of Children's Services has tried to address this issue. One of the new guidelines for a foster parent is; to provide a foster child with a "Life Book". Foster parents can help a child maintain links to his / her family's past by creating life books together. A life book is a scrapbook that contains photos, Children's artwork and memorabilia that records the child's life while in a foster home.
Your pages will be packaged and delivered to the Department of Social/ Children Services the child's social worker will bring the pre-made scrap book pages to the foster home. (The pages will be gender and age specific).
We need help from you to donate scrap book pages with spots that pictures can be added, to start making positive memories for these children. Be as creative or simple as you want, we do ask that you use words of encouragement, words that are positive and ego building."
