Save the Date – UK-Exclusive 10,000 Card Challenge !
We need your help – and yes, we mean all of you! Stampin’ Up! has a long history of supporting philanthropic causes. Last year, in support of Ronald McDonald House Charities, Stampin’ Up! UK held a ‘Christmas Cheer Challenge’ cardmaking day. With the help of our demonstrator VIP guests we made over eight hundred cards for donation to the charity, and as you can imagine we were delighted! The following weekend, SU challenged us to hold your own Christmas Cheer Challenge events asking SU demos to gather with customers, friends and family to make cards. Demonstrators all over the UK rose to the challenge, and this combined effort resulted in us making a massive 3,770 cards. Now, the Challenge events are back!
* To celebrate our 10th anniversary in the UK, Stampin’ Up! has set a challenge to make a whopping 10,000 cards across our two cardmaking challenge weekends. These cards will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Why Ronald McDonald House Charities?
Ronald McDonald House Charities is an independent charity providing free accommodation, care and support to families with seriously ill children in hospital. The card donations help support vulnerable families by giving them access to beautifully crafted cards which they can send to their loved ones back home – creating a bit of normality in what is a very stressful and alien situation for many.
Watch out for a further update next week with more information on how you can participate.
* Birthday Wishes Challenge takes place on Friday, 23 June to Sunday, 25 June.
* Christmas Cheer Challenge takes place on Friday, 1 December to Sunday, 3 December.
