To love what we do
and share what we love
as we help others enjoy creativity
and worthwhile accomplishments
. . . in this we make a difference!
Does that sound kind of corny? Rubber stamping making a difference? And yet, as a company, Stampin’ Up! makes a difference in many ways.
Next week, Shelli Gardner, CEO of Stampin’ Up!, will appear on the TODAY Show as part of the Holiday Toy Drive. Amazingly, this year SU! has donated over $500,000 worth of stamping and rubber crafting products to more than a dozen charities. You’re probably aware of Stampin’ Up!’s participation in the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Shelli is scheduled to appear on the TODAY Show on Tuesday, December 6. Watch if you can, or check out Shelli’s blog for news about her appearance.
Locally, fellow demonstrator Tina Moore and I collect handmade cards from our stampers and give them to Pay-It-Forward House, which offers lodging for those whose family members are receiving long-term medical care nearby. You have created hundreds of cards that are made available to the guests of Pay-It-Forward House to use when needed. Guests may make donations for the cards they use.
In a quieter way, every handmade card you send has the potential of gladdening someone’s heart or encouraging them. After my computer class yesterday, a couple of students shared with me their experiences sending — and receiving — handmade cards. I was touched by their stories.
Will you send someone a handmade card today?
