Most of you would have seen and heard about the devastation and loss of life due to the terrible bush fires in the past week in Victoria. Although I dont know anyone that has been personally affected my heart does go out to everyone who has lost friends, family, loved ones, pets and property. The stories I’ve read are just heart wrenching and I get tears every time I think about it. I think most Australians are still in shock as we all feel so much for those personally affected. I suppose this could be partially why I have felt so down/sad this week and have had very little motivation to do anything.
The Australian demonstrators put it to Stampin’ Up! to see if they could help as a whole and being the company with heart that it is they have offered assistance by donating 50% of sales on ten pre-selected stamp sets.
So from today until the 31st March when you purchase any of the following stamp sets Stampin’ Up! will donate a full 50% of the retail value to the Red Cross Victorian Bushfires 2009 Appeal.
You will notice a couple of my favourite sets in there too so expect to see a few more samples with those sets in them over the next month or so.
The items you see in that list with an asterisk (*) beside them are sets that will retire come 31st March so if you want any of these be quick as supplies of these sets are limited so they will only be available while stocks last.
You dont have to have a demonstration or workshop to order you can email or ring your order through to me at any time and I will also waive the shipping/freight costs on orders when ordering any of these stamp sets.
So you can do a little to help by ordering these stamp sets today.
Here are a few cards I’ve made using some of these stamp sets.
I know this situation has touched your heart as it has mine and do hope you will help with this very worthwhile cause.
