Sharing Sweet Thoughts
Back in 2003, when I attended my first Stampin’ Up! Convention, Stampin’ Up! announced they were partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC). We knew Stampin’ Up! would give them a check every year and that they’d offer a RMHC stamp set each year. In the beginning, Stampin’ Up! gave $2 from the sale of every RMHC set to the charity. Several years ago, they began sending them $3 per set. Besides the over $1.5 million in donations, demonstrators volunteer at RMHC houses in their areas and we donate cards for the charity’s use.
In case you don’t know, RMHC keeps families close to each other and surrounded by love when their children are receiving medical treatment far from home. Families can stay in the houses so they don’t have to be separated or pay huge hotel fees. I can’t begin to describe the feeling of being involved with this charity. It’s pride, of course, that I’m party of such an amazing company as Stampin’ Up!, but it’s also humility and gratitude that we have the opportunity to help.
This year’s stamp set is Sharing Sweet Thoughts. Here are a few ideas created by the Stampin’ Up! concept artists using the set.
How cute is that? and the set coordinates with the Everyday Jar Framelits Dies in the 2017-18 Annual Catalog. I love the jar of ladybugs, and the jar of strawberries. But you can do a whole butterfly theme as well. It’s perfect for gift packaging as well as cards and other crafts.
Stampin’ Up! has helped many other charities besides the RMHC, but this is the longest running. We’ve helped with breast cancer research, heart disease, areas that have been devastated by acts of nature, and more. We also donate annually to the Today Show Toy Drive during the holidays.
You can help make a difference by purchasing the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set. It’s perfect for anyone and almost every occasion!
Thanks for stopping by Stampng with Buffy. Have a wonderful day!
