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.
