Hello Everyone! Today is a busy day in the Carr house! Logan’s school is participating in a fundraiser at the local Pizza Ranch restaurant. We have teamed up with the local police department and will be cleaning tables and serving customers while the police officers show off the cars and K-9 dogs, etc. I even heard McGruff may make an appearance!
Talking about volunteering and giving back…One of the gazillion reasons I love being a Stampin’ Up!® Independent Demonstrator and just being involved with the company in general is their passion for giving back through the Making a Difference Program!
Each year on the Incentive Trip attendees are encouraged to do mission work and donate small items to help the people in need where they are visiting.
Demonstrators and employees in the home office are often celebrated for their volunteer work. You may remember that right before Covid hit my team was planning a large scale event with Stampin’ Up to help the Badger Honor Flight organization. Still hoping that happens now that there are flights on the calendar starting in October.
Another way that Stampin’ Up gives back is by creating stamp sets for you and I to purchase that help raise money and awareness for important causes. Stampin’ Up has raised money for the Ronald McDonald House, and other organizations that support Mental Health services, Foster Care, Adoption and Fertility, Covid -19 relief, etc..and this year is no exception.
On page 5 of the July – December Mini Catalog you will find the Strong of Heart Stamp Set. For each set sold Stampin’ Up will be donating $3 to organizations that help support heart health. Not just in America, but globally.
Watch for lots of ideas on how to use this stamp set and I hope like me, it will be on the top of your wish list!
Today’s card is a Clean and Simple or #simplestamping type card. Ink. Paper. Stamp. Believe me it’s not as easy as you think if you consider yourself an avid stamper!
