Nikki Sivils Scrapbooking Drive for Joplin...
Nikki Sivils, her husband Dan, and employee Lanie traveled to Joplin Sunday afternoon to deliver the donations from individuals (like those of you who brought items to SG) and companies Nikki contacted.

"We have 46 ladies and 50 tubs and boxes so we've almost met our goal of finding 50 scrapbookers that had their homes leveled by the tornado," Nikki said. "What's left over will go to the Joplin schools, Children's Haven (a place parents can drop off their kids during a family emergency with no questions asked) and Bright Futures (this group reaches out to families with children that are struggling to make ends meet). The turn out was so huge the product was everywhere through out my home and on three pallets in my garage! I'm so thankful to each and every one of you!"

The tubs used to hold the donations were provided by Spellbinders as well as the U-Haul that has been rented and used to deliver the donations. The tubs are used to hold miscellaneous items, and Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker provided donations of scrapbooking supplies plus boxes so that paper can be stored nicely and not damaged or bent.

Manufacturers who donated items included the following:
Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker
Maya Road
Bella Blvd.
Elle's Studio
Jillibean Soup
My Little Shoebox
Best Creations
Graphic 45
Unity Stamps
Jenni Bowlin
