Lets make a difference to the people of Haiti

On 12th January 2010 a huge earthquake struck Haiti, leaving in its wake massive devastation that the Haitian people and their leaders are unable to deal with unless they receive help from the outside world.
Stampin' Up! Demonstrators have a long history of trying to make a difference in the lives of others, most especially when disasters strike and aid is needed the most. Many demonstrators have contacted Stampin' Up! this past week to ask what is being done to help and the company have come up with a plan that will enable every individual to help contribute to the relief effort.

The plan is this
From now until the 28th February, Stampin' Up! will donate £1 from the sale of each "Greenhouse Garden" stamp set to the Red Cross International Response Fund. The Red Cross is already well established in Haiti and will use any money raised for both immediate relief and long term support for those suffering from the aftermath of this disaster.

Along with many other demonstrators I will match that £1 donation for every stamp set that is purchased through me. These £1 donations may not be the biggest but for those poor people left with nothing it could make a huge difference.

Please join me in trying to make a difference.

Here is just one of my projects using the flowers from this beautiful Greenhouse Garden stamp set. I made this project before we learnt about the Stampin' Up! donation plan but I am glad I can showcase just a couple of the flower images to show you how stunning this stamp set can be.
