Want to give help to Queensland flood relief efforts?

January 15, 2011

A little over a week ago, watching the news about the weather and flooding in Queensland, I said to my husband “At least our friends in Toowoomba will be OK, because they are on high ground there”.

How wrong I was.

I couldn’t believe the pictures I was seeing on the news on Tuesday night. I’ve heard very little from them – a response to our email to check on them was that thankfully they were all OK, but their home had been flooded. I can’t begin to imagine the devastation that they are feeling as they go into clean-up mode.

Like the bushfire appeal from a couple of year’s ago, Stampin’ Up! have again launched an appeal to make it easy for us papercrafters to give a little.

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.
Something as simple as placing your order in this period helps grow the contribution we can make together. Email me now with your order and we can help make a difference.
