We have all been touched by the bushfires that have been ravaging Victoria over the last 2 weeks.  It is hard not to be touched.  The images that have been flooding the media have been hard to escape, and why would you want to when so many people’s lives have been changed forever?  I have felt that there is so little that I can do from way back here in Metropolitan Melbourne and was pleased when Stampin’ Up! has organised a special way that we can help out.

Join Australian and New Zealand Stampin’ Up!® Demonstrators help the victims of the bushfires. From 12 February through 31 March 2009, when you purchase any of a select group of 10 stamp sets, Stampin’ Up! will donate 50 percent of the sales of these sets to the Australia Red Cross Victorian Bushfires 2009 Appeal.   I am forgoing my20% commission on these sets ~ the price you pay is in red (P&H extra).

If you feel that card making and scrapping feel frivolous at this time, how about making some cards for our volunteers to thank them? Why not make some cards to give to the Red Cross to sell, or perhaps make up a 6’x6’ album (without photos) for those people who only have their photos left? Stuck for ideas of other ways to help out? Check out this site – “Our Community” and make your donation count.  

 Till next time, stay safe ~
