Spirit of Summer Collab - *IMPORTANT*

This is one HUMUNGOUS and GORGEOUS kit, and the most important, it’s for an AWESOME cause. Here are the organizers description, explanation and instructions on how to receive it:

…………………………………………………………………………………………

Spirit of Summer  is a charity collab benefiting the Victorian bushfire Appeal. Not only has this affected Australians, but human beings the world over.

Over 30 Australian and international designers have banded together to help support many Australians, animals and communities decimated by one Australia's worst national disasters.

What happened?

On Saturday, Feb 7, the temperature in Melbourne was 33'c by 9am. By noon it was 40'c and by 2.50 pm soared to 47.9'c (a state record).Thousands of people were also about to start running from the inferno that would become one of Australia's worst peacetime disasters. Trees ignited in the blink of an eye. By the time people heard the roar, it was too late to flee ahead of the flames.Unfortunately no one or thing could have stopped this inferno that wiped out communities, bushland, and lives within minutes. Many towns now cease to exist!.After watching interviews with survivors, many say that they cant put into words what they went through, saw or felt on that day.

Why is this charity kit different?

No money will change hands at Scrap N Tag (our host website).

We are asking for your support by donating DIRECTLY to one of the following charities:

It’s a BEAUTIFUL and HUGE kit, and such an important cause. Please make a donation to the institutions mentioned above, even if you don’t like/want the kit…. which is virtually impossible since there are so many papers and elements in there that you’re bound to find something you like! lol

And please leave some love to these amazing designers who worked so hard to pull this off!

Here’s a layout I made using this magnificent kit:

And if you can, send a prayer, a thought towards those who lost everything, they sure can use any help they need!!!

Hugs,
