Supporting our own.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

I am so grateful to say that many of you in this crafty family are involved with organizations and people that are committed to making a difference and an impact in our local community.

Last week we talked about birthday cards for Cody’s 18th birthday. So don’t forget to drop off a birthday card or two…or three. ๐Ÿ™‚ I will be sending the box on September 23.

But this week we are talking about something a little bit different. One of our very own volunteers with the High Desert Pregnancy Clinic. They are holding their annual fundraiser called “Annual Night for Life” on September 28th at 6:30 pm right here at Hawk’s Landing Golf Course in Yucca Valley. Cost for the ticket is $50 and includes dinner and a guest speaker, Matt Walsh. If you plan to go you will need to get your ticket by September 16 with Brandi at 760-369-8512.

If you volunteer or have something you are involved in and want it to be featured for Friendship Friday please email me at reddoor@stampingwithjoni.com.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Two ways to give back!

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward. I have been approached by a dear friend, mentor, and fellow crafter. Lori is President of the Board for the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. Currently the Food Pantry is holding not one, but two, fundraisers. So here are the details for each.

The first fundraiser is a night of Bingo at the Elks Lodge here in 29 Palms on Friday, February 15. Would you like to go with me and have some fun? There will be stamping (hopefully a blackout) and prizes!

The second fundraiser is less expensive and it is not an event. If you would like to purchase tickets for a chance to win this quilt please let me know.

The quilt was handmade by Susan Lunn and donated for this drawing. It is approximately 4’X4′. Tickets are 6 for $5. The winning ticket will be drawn at the Board Meeting on February 25.

All proceeds go to the 29 Palms Community Food Pantry. If you have any questions or would like to purchase tickets for either of these fundraisers please contact me.

I love when my fellow crafters make it so easy to give back. If you are a Red Door Crafter and involved with an organization that would like to be featured on Friendship Friday please contact me. I am always looking for new ways to give back and encouraging you to get involved. Our ripples become waves.

Happy Crafting!

Giving back to those who give so much.

Did you know our local theatre in 29 Palms is all run by volunteers?ย  They are trying to update and expand to provide better quality shows for you to enjoy.ย  So today’s give back is to consider attending this event to help this organization to evolve and stay relevant.ย  So mark your calendars for June 23 and let me know if you need help getting tickets.

Here’s an explanation of what will happen…

This gala performance event, including a catered dinner, will be held on Saturday, June 23rd, and will serve as a fundraiser for the Theatre 29 Building Expansion Fund. The City of Twentynine Palms has approved designs for a major expansion, which expands the theater from the current 95 seat capacity to 148. The plans also call for a fly loft and rigging to be able to utilize backdrops and rear projections, expanded Green Room and Dressing Room space, and additional and updated bathroom facilities.

Reserved tickets for the dinner and show are $25.00 each and are available online atย www.theatre29.orgย or by calling the Theatre 29 Box Office at 760-361-4151.

Consider helping and let me know if you want to sit together.

Happy Crafting!
