Thank you for your support

Stampin' Up! which I am an Independent Demonstrator for, has been committed to giving back and making a difference since it began, and in 2003, they officially launched their Making a Difference program. Some of the ways they do this is to..
  • Support Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) through annual financial donations. 
  • Encourage demonstrators to make and donate cards to local RMHC Houses. 
  • Raise funds to help people affected by natural and other disasters.
For the last few years I have been going once a month to Ronald McDonald House in Herston, Brisbane and teaching cards to any of the residents that need a break from the daily hospital visits or the long waiting times for babies to arrive or grow big enough to take home. On these card making days I always take a huge box of cards with me to donate. Some of these cards have been donated by other demonstrators and passed on to me. One very generous demonstrator Debbie Blake, who lives in Darwin posted me 3 boxes of cards last year. Isn't that wonderful.

The ladies in the office have these cards on hand for anyone that needs them, residents don't always have time to think of a birthday or anniversary, when there are more pressing things happening right now.So these cards are gratefully received.

Also Stampin' Up! received a letter from the Auckland branch of Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) and I would like to share it with you where they express thanks for what New Zealand demonstrators have done to contribute.

Over the last few weeks I have been concentrating my efforts on making cards for North Queensland Rural Family Services and I want to send out a huge thank you to everyone that attended my card making days and helping make many gorgeous cards. Thank you, thank you, thank you... You have made a difference.

There will be more of these card making days, both for NQ and for Ronald McDonald House so if you want to come along and help, all you need to do is let me know.
