I am fundraising for #ScrappinWithPassion, an annual event held on February 29, 2020.
As you know we lost my Dad suddenly from coronary artery disease this past October. He had suffered a heart attack unknowingly in January 2013, underwent a triple bypass and altered his lifestyle greatly to minimize his risks thereonin.
I've participated in this all day scrapbooking event since discovering it in 2013. Within the past decade Dad asked me to scrapbook his life so that when he passed away my sister Laurie and I wouldn't have a box of photos, many with no context. Together he & I sorted photos, decided which ones would make it into the albums, I transcribed the stories for journaling later, printed & laid out photos and did the journaling; we got up to 2013 and are into the 4th album. I learned so much about who his friends were, how they met and it was a wonderful way to spend time together. I will be honouring Dad at the 2020 Scrappin' With Passion event. I will continue scrapbooking photos and momentos and will finish this project. It's an honour and will be part of my grieving process.
I started a fundraiser to help Heart & Stroke fund the next research breakthrough. The donations I raise will promote health, save lives, and enhance recovery.
Please donate and cheer me on today! Thank you, Trace
