Haitian Disaster Relie

On January 12, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake devastation so overwhelming that the Haitian people and their leaders can only look for help from the outside to cope. As a Stampin′ Up! demonstrator, you can help make a difference in the lives of those who continue to suffer from the effects of this earthquake by purchasing, and more importantly selling, the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set.

From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set you sell will be donated to the American Red Cross’ Haiti Relief and Development 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.

Stampin' Up employees also wanted to do something that would be fast help on the ground -- so workers at our main distribution center put together personal care kits that will be distributed through existing relief networks. You can see and read all about that touching effort by clicking here -- it will take you to our founder Shelli Gardner's blog.

I have always loved being a Stampin' Up demonstrator because we are guided by what we call a "statement of the heart" -- and helping others is such a part of that. Thank you Stampin' Up for providing these small, yet meaningful ways that we can help ease the unimaginable suffering in Haiti.
