Thank you to everyone who attended Let’s Fill the Air with Hope and Cure MS on September 10th to benefit Crop for a Cause. Together with your generosity and the donations from private parties and corporations; we raised $5,486.38. THAT IS AMAZING!! We could not have done it without your help. Each day we get closer to finding a cure for MS, and having these kinds of events, along with your support, the day will come when MS is no longer a part of our lives. Our host, Allan Morrison, looks forward to hosting this event again in 2017! Check out all the great photos from our 2016 event.

Why We Do This
Working as a team, our 100% volunteer group is dedicated to raising funds for the National MS Society. Through craft events, we create an enjoyable and social environment for our participants who so generously continue to support our organization and attend our events.
Founded by Laura Machonis, “Crop for a Cause” began as an idea which combined the hobby of scrapbooking that she loves with fundraising for the disease she has. Diagnosed with MS in 1997, Laura began volunteering for the Chicago area MS Walk. In 2007, she created “Crop for a Cause” and leads the #1 team (140+ strong) each year at the MS Walk.
