Helping Haiti with Stampin Up

Stampin′ Up! demonstrators have a long history of making a difference in the lives of others--especially when disaster strikes and the need is greatest. So it was not surprising that so many demonstrators have contacted us in the past week asking what the plan is for helping to provide relief for those who continue to suffer from the effects of the earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January.

Here is the plan:

From now until 28 February, 2010, £1 from every Greenhouse Gardens stamp set that I sell will be donated American Red Cross’ International Response Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance and other support to help those in need.

This is an offer from Stampin Up, they are paying the £1 per set but I am also offering to match the offer and send £1 for every set I sell . So £2 per set will go straight to the relief fund.

Here are a selection of cards made with the set

Stampin Up in the USA have also been helping the fund in other ways. They purchased supplies for 5000 emergency kits and the staff spent time packing them all this week to get them sent off. If you would like to see more about this you can read Shelli Gardner's blog here
Please contact me asap if you would like to order the set and help the fund. I will be placing an order this weekend and also next weekend then further orders throughout February.

Thanks for your help!
