During times of fear, stress, uncertainty, or loss, scrapbooking and creativity can play a substantial role in the healing process. Throughout 2010, Creating Keepsakes is promoting our "Creativity Heals" campaign to encourage this healing. We invite you to share your creative talents, time, and extra scrapbook and craft supplies to help those in need. In each issue of Creating Keepsakes magazine, we are spotlighting a different way to use your creative talents to help yourself or others who may be in need of healing.

May/June provides a great service for US military personnel. They collect homemade cards for men and women in the military to send to their families. Donate your homemade cards to today. Be sure to read the guidelines posted on the home page, and then check out the blog for updates on what cards are most needed at the moment. 


The Good Grief Blog is an online community where those who have suffered loss can receive support as they share their stories and scrapbook pages about loved ones.



Volunteer to teach at or participate in craft projects at a local school, recreation center, or private service organization. Find out what programs in your community use volunteers with artistic talents.



Visit those in nursing homes or assisted living centers. Make cards or other crafts with them, or collect cards to give to them.



Donate extra crafting supplies to hospitals or art-therapy centers in your area.
