Haiti Disaster Relief

Haiti Disaster Relief

January 18, 2010

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. In the past, when terrorists attacked the Twin Towers, when a tsunami struck Indonesia, when a hurricane destroyed New Orleans, and when wildfires ravaged Australia, Stampin′ Up! demonstrators stepped forward and showed their commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. This time is no different. Already we have received many calls and e-mails from demonstrators asking what Stampin′ Up! is planning and how they can help. We are currently developing a disaster relief plan so that together we can contribute to the aid of those who continue to suffer in the aftermath of this disaster. We will release details in the next few days, so please check back often and be prepared to lend a hand when the plan has been finalized.

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. So it was not surprising that so many demonstrators have contacted us in the past week asking what the plan is for helping to provide relief for those who continue to suffer from the effects of the earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12.

Here is the plan:

From now until February 28, 2010, $2 from every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set you sell (or buy) will be donated 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.

Product Name Item # Price
I {Heart} Hearts – clear-mount (block D recommended) 118571 $18.95
I {Heart} Hearts – wood-mount 117010 $26.95

This is a simple and straightforward plan; the more stamp sets you sell, the greater the difference you make. Often it is the simplest plans that work best!
