The following announcement was made on the SU! website today:
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.
In addition to SU!'s generous offer, since I would hate to profit from other people's misfortune, so I will also be donating any Instant Income commission from Stampin' Up! sales for the duration of the Stampin' Up! appeal.
Sorry about being away for so long, it was one of my goals to be more up to date this year with my blog, but every thing that could has gone wrong when it comes to my stamping time lately, I have a card in progress sitting on my desk just waiting for the finishing touches wanna see what stopped me from finishing it up? (warning it is not for the faint of heart...) http://yfrog.com/h78r5wj
