CardMaker - - Readers Reach Out -

Stampin’ Up! launched its Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence pro­gram in 2003. This pro­gram fa­cil­i­tates cor­po­rate giv­ing and pro­motes ser­vice among demon­stra­tors and em­ploy­ees. Through the Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence pro­gram, Stampin’ Up! part­nered with Ron­ald McDon­ald House Char­i­ties (RMHC). Each year, Stampin’ Up! de­signs an exclusive stamp set to pro­mote the part­ner­ship with RMHC, and do­nates a por­tion of the pro­ceeds from each sale of that set. To date, more than $1,000,000 has been do­nated from RMHC stamp set sales. The cur­rent des­ig­nated stamp set is Shar­ing Sweet Thoughts. Stampin’ Up!’s demon­stra­tors are also en­cour­aged to vol­un­teer their time teach­ing lo­cal Ron­ald McDon­ald House guests the cre­ative art of stamp­ing through the Mak­ing a Dif­fer­ence pro­gram. Demon­stra­tors also cre­ate cards at train­ing events which are do­nated to Ron­ald McDon­ald Houses. Those stay­ing at the Houses then use the cards to keep in touch with loved ones while they are away from home.

What kinds of cards are needed?

Birth­day cards, thank you cards and think­ing of you cards are most needed. Around the hol­i­days, hol­i­day cards are also ap­pro­pri­ate. Sym­pa­thy cards aren’t a good choice.

Things to re­mem­ber

• Do­nate com­plete cards, not card fronts.

• In­clude an en­ve­lope with each card.

• Do not put any con­tact in­for­ma­tion on the card; do­ing so is against RMHC pol­icy.
