New Fundraiser: COL is Teaming with Thirty-One Gifts!


Crops of Luv will be hosting regular opportunities to order from thirty-one gifts no matter where you are (even Canada and some APOs)....When we announce the Crops of Luv sale period, Elizabeth Wright, our thirty-one consultant, has generously offered to donate to Crops of Luv all profits received during the COL sale period.  You can shop for great products and help Crops of Luv in the process!!  If you want to be in the group and you haven't received an invite, just respond here or on the Crops of Luv Facebook page and Jody will add your name to the group.  Check out the link below to see the awesome thirty-one products.  Be sure to check the Crops of Luv Facebook page, Calendar of Events, and this blog for announcements of upcoming COL thirty-one sale periods.  The first fundraiser event will be August 1 through August 6.

Calling All Crocheters!!!

Crops of Luv is looking for volunteer crocheters who can make up a bunch of these adorable crocheted "rain clouds."  We don't need you to do the rain or raindrops, just the crocheted cloud.  If you want to share your crocheting talents for a very worthy cause, Crops of Luv needs YOU.  So START YOUR CROCHET HOOKS today!!!

HELP! COL Needs Embellishments!

Jody and Lisa have put out an SOS call for embellishments!  Any of you volunteers out there that can help,  COL needs every type of embellishment, title, etc.  Even if each of us only does a few, that's all gonna add up to a lot.  Let's get busy!   If you're not a scrapper but believe in the COL mission, maybe you could donate some purchased embellishments or make a cash donation to COL, or send COL a gift card to Michael's or JoAnn's or Hobby Lobby, etc.  Every little bit helps; it doesn't need to be extravagant to make a difference!  Thanx!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JODY!

Everyone please join us in wishing Crops of Luv co-founder, Jody McNelis, a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!  Jody's birthday wish is for everyone to perform Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) today....perhaps your RAK could be a donation to support Crops of Luv.... that would definitely qualify and would be a win-win RAK for sure!  Whatever RAK you decide to do, you are helping someone so kudos to you all!
