hello there, Wow 2 weeks into the New year and here I am posting my first blog post. I have no excuse for not blogging apart from pure laziness. Now that is being honest with you.....
One thing I have been doing is keeping up with the news of the flooding in Queensland. What absolute devastation for so many people. As they have done before Stampin' Up! have just announced what they have planned to raise funds for the flood appeal.
From the Home Office;
Australia Flood Appeal13 January 2011
As flood waters continue to inundate Australia in what has been described as the worst flooding in 37 years, we express our deepest sympathies to those who have lost loved ones and homes and to those whose lives have been changed forever. We, like so many of you, feel a compelling need to lend support to all those who have been affected.
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. Nearly two years ago, we watched another tragedy unfold in Australia. Our hearts were touched as demonstrators, customers and friends joined together in support of the Bushfire Appeal. We've done it before and we can certainly do it again!
Please join with us by supporting the Australia Flood Appeal--a cause in which Stampin' Up! will donate $2 AUD of the retail value of sales from any stamp set (with a retail value of $30 or more) sold in Australia and New Zealand from 15 January through 15 February to the State Emergency Services in Queensland.
With Sale-a-bration starting soon, what a great way to buy stamps and maybe get some free ones, and be helping out the flood appeal as well. If you would like to place an order just email me or even better still get some friends together and host a workshop either in your home or mine and I will donate a further $10 to the appeal.
Hope to hear from you soon.
