Creative Crafts and Stickers to Host it’s First Annual Charity Cyber Scrapbooking Crop










Markham, Ontario (PRWEB) September 11, 2006

From September 27 to October 3, 2006, Jen Walker, owner of Creative Crafts and Stickers.com, will be hosting her first Annual Charity Cyber Scrapbooking Crop. This event will benefit the Rich Little Special Care Nursery (SCN) (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – NICU) at the Civic Campus of the Ottawa Hospital (located in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada).

In the past two years, Jen’s sister has had two premature babies, with the second one born this past May. She is so very impressed with the care and dedication that the Neonatal staff showed her sister, brother in law and her premature babies. Jen believes that children are our future and getting a supportive and loving start is very important to premature babies. The intent of this crop is to give back to the Special Care Nursery and allow them to better support other families who need their services.

This Special Care Nursery Charity Cyber Crop will include scrapbooking challenges, online classes, games, prizes, and more. Thanks to the truly amazing support and contributions from manufacturers in the scrapbooking and stamping industry, there will also be a raffle and silent auctions. Jen will also be personally donating a minimum of 10% of all sales made during the event to this Special Care Nursery. The first 50 orders will also receive a goodie bag filled with items from the crops sponsors. We are also asking that all participants create Congratulations cards for the nurses to give to the families with babies in the SCN.

The Cyber Crop will take place online at Creative Crafts and Stickers.com and will be held in the message board, chat room and gallery. We hope you will join us for this fantastic event, or consider making an online donation for the Special Care Nursery.

NIU Executive Club Increases Annual Scholarship Award By 50%

NIU Executive Club Increases Annual Scholarship Award By 50%










Dekalb, IL (PRWEB) March 23, 2011

Since establishing the scholarship in 1999, the NIU Executive Club has awarded nearly $ 100,000 in scholarship dollars to 17 exceptional NIU students. These significant scholarship awards have had a direct impact on the lives of the award recipients, who invariably go on to successful careers after graduating from NIU.

Monica Wallace, an attorney in the Health Law Department at Chicago-based McDermott, Will & Emery LLP in Chicago, was the first recipient of the NIU Executive Club scholarship in 1999. Today, she serves on the Executive Club’s Board of Directors, and mentors current Executive Club scholars.

“The level of support I received from the NIU Executive Club during my academic career was truly exceptional, and was instrumental to the success I have enjoyed in my career” Wallace said. “I gained opportunities for summer internships, participated in the club’s business and social activities, and met numerous accomplished alumni, many of whom I consider close friends today,” she added.

Michael Nicolas, President of the NIU Executive Club, said that the increase in the Executive Club Scholarship is a testament to the Club’s continued commitment to the academic success of NIU’s best and brightest students. “Since its inception, the Executive Club Scholarship has been our way of giving back to NIU by providing financial assistance to exceptional students. This significant increase in the Executive Club Scholarship is further proof of the Club’s commitment to our scholars, and to the University as a whole. We hope that our efforts serve as a shining example that Huskie pride is a lifelong commitment, which starts on campus and continues long after graduation.”

Funding for the Executive Club Scholarship is provided by the Club’s many activities, including its annual Scholarship Gala held in November. The Executive Club endowment is the second largest scholarship fund at NIU, and currently exceeds $ 582,000.

About the NIU Executive Club

Established in 1996, the NIU Executive Club is an organization dedicated to fostering professional and personal relationships among highly successful NIU graduates, and giving back to the NIU community. The Executive Club awards annual scholarships to exceptional students, connects students with mentors and internship opportunities, and sponsors a variety of educational forums and networking activities. In 2006, the Executive Club formed a partnership with the NIU Young Professionals Network to advance the career development of graduates with less than 10 years of experience.
