October 6th is World Card Making Day & what better way to celebrate than using our hobby to make a difference in the lives of others! That's what card making is really all about, right?
We will be creating cards to donate to the Ronald McDonald House Charities! Stampin Up has been partnered with this worthwhile cause for over 10 years! Click here for the flyer highlighting this year's RMHC stamp set "Moving Forward"! I received this adorable card from Artisan winner Sarah Sagert in the Artisan Finalist swap at Convention! I think it highlights the Moving Forward set perfectly!
Here's a little more info off the SU website:
Stampin' Up! is partnering with Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC) to bring
comfort and creativity to the lives of Ronald McDonald House guests. Each year,
thousands of families stay at more than 160 independently operated Ronald
McDonald Houses in North America. These Houses serve as temporary homes for the
families of seriously ill children who are being treated in nearby hospitals.
Stampin' Up!'s commitment to RMHC is fourfold. Each year, the company donates
$100,000 to the organization, in addition to a portion of the proceeds from the
sale of an exclusive stamp set designed to promote the partnership with RMHC.
The company's demonstrators are also encouraged through the Making a Difference
campaign to volunteer their time teaching Ronald McDonald House guests in their
areas the creative art of rubber stamping.
Finally, cards demonstrators
create at training events throughout the US and Canada are donated to Ronald
McDonald Houses in the areas where the events are held.
You can find all the details of this event here on my SU event page! If you can not attend the event but you would still like to participate please contact me to sign up for a "Card for Kids Kit" in the mail. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!
