Victorian Bush Fire Appeal

It has been a heart wrenching week for many Victorians over the last week, with bush fires that really seem more like fire storms, destroying homes and far more profoundly, taking the lives of too many special people.

To help support the people left after such devastation, Stampin’ Up! have offered to make a donation to the Bush Fire Appeal,  like so many other businesses across Australia (I even made sure I did my shopping at Coles today and bought my bread from Bakers Delight – all offering donations for our purchases).

So, from today through to 31 March 2009, when you purchase any of a select group of 10 stamp sets, Stampin’ Up! will donate 50 percent of the sales of these sets to the Australia Red Cross Victorian Bushfires 2009 Appeal.  Remember, that if you include one of these stamp sets in a $100 purchase before the end of February, you will also receive a Sale-a-bration stamp set of your choice.   Stampin’ Up! will let demonstrators know how much money has been donated sometime after 31 March … so when they tell me, I will share with you how much Stampin’ Up! has contributed to the Victorian Bush Fire Appeal.

Today also happens to be my brother-in-law’s birthday, so on a brighter note, this is the card I made for his birthday.  He’s a bloke’s bloke … so it had to be as masculine as possible!  So, you can see, only one stamp used (and, I know, it’s crooked … that will teach me to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig!)!  Otherwise, I used the Outlaw DSP, my star punches and the wide grosgrain ribbon with a bit of linen thread.

  1. good on you rachel for the $150.00 raised you are a good woman – with not working now that money would have gone far with your 3 beautiful children but you selflessly gave to others instead.
