lets help out!

Our hearts go out to those in Queensland who are experiencing such horrid floods! Many have lost their houses, their livelihood and some their lives! Yesterday Stampin' Up! announced a fundraising that we would LOVE everyone to get behind. Here is what Stampin' Up! said:-

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.

so you can help raise some funds by emailing me on julia.leece@slingshot.co.nz with your orders. I will also MATCH the donations - so for every set over $30 I will forward $2 to the appeal.

On a aside- we have just got back from a weeks camping which was fun! Hopefully now I can get into some crafting again but tomorrow I will post a pic of us camping!

See you then.
