My team and I were featured in Stampin' Up's newsletter this week! It was a nice write up. I'm so thankful Stampin' Up is a company that truly makes a difference corporately.
If you're interested in joining a team that centers around making cards for great causes, we'd love to have you. http://bit.ly/joinSUnow
"Lyssa Zwolanek, a Gold Elite demonstrator from the United States, received the Heart of Stampin’ Up! award. Her association with Stampin’ Up! allowed her to connect her team, the Song of My Heart Stampers, with a worthwhile cause: they used their love of stamping to show appreciation and kindness to war veterans. Lyssa’s hard work has made quite a difference for her local community and for many deserving men and women across the country.
Lyssa and her team recently gathered for their annual Honor Flight Stamp Night. The Honor Flight Network is a charitable organization that serves veterans from World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War by sending them on all-expenses-paid trips to the war memorials in Washington, D.C. Together with the Honor Flight Network, the stampers set a goal to create 1,000 handmade cards in one day to help raise funds for this organization. They were more than successful, surpassing their goal by an astounding 1,952 cards! Through this project, Lyssa helped to further unify her team and the stampers that joined by creating cards to honor the veterans. As part of Lyssa’s award, Stampin’ Up! donated supplies and sponsored trips for eight veterans and their companions.
What an incredible story! Thank you, Lyssa, and the Song of My Heart Stampers for making a difference."
(Actually our final count was well over 2,100 handmade, hand-signed cards delivered to Honor Flight! Demonstrators all over the U.S. mailed them in and they just kept coming. It was lovely. Thank you to everyone who participated, donated, bid, advertised and stamped!)
Many thanks to Stampin' Up for bringing awareness to Honor Flight's need for cards for the Mail Call portion of the veterans' flights.
Our goal is for EVERY veteran who goes on a Flight to get a handmade Stampin' Up card. We've got Wisconsin covered. What about YOUR state? Could YOU be a coordinator for that?
