Happy Spring to everyone in the great white north! I know in Alberta, spring has FINALLY arrived and the snow is melting and the birds are singing. It's so refreshing!

There seems to be no end to the continued devastation after Japan's earthquake and tsunami. Our prayers go out to the people of this brave nation. To aid our Japanese Guiding sisters, we will donate .05 from every Community Service crest sold in April to Girl Scouts of Japan. If you also would like to donate there is more information here.

Again it amazes me at the phenomenal response in our recent Only One Hour A Week survey. I know from experience that it's not OOHAW but my goal is to ease the burden as much as possible in the time required in being a leader with as many resources available at your fingertips saving you time and helping you feel better prepared.

If you have not taken the suvey yet, you can by clicking here. To thank you for your time and input, everyone who completes the survey will receive a promo code for 15% off any order valid until May 31, 2011. Also everyone who completes the survey will get a chance to win a $50 Amazon gift certificate. The draw will take place April 20 and the winner will be announced in the May newsletter as well as some of the survey results.

We have 17 new crests this month including 2 new country flags and 5 more USA state flags. Keep the suggestions coming and we'll be happy to add them.

I'd also like to start adding customer photos to the website. These could include shots displaying our crests on your camp blankets or handing them out to your kids. Please include the date, your name and where you live and a brief description. Also please ensure you have permission to post the photo to the web from anyone included in the photos.

April's SPECIAL is 10% OFF two categories - Awards and Recognition and Special People. This discount will appear automatically in your shopping cart.
