If you’re like me, you are feeling overwhelmed with emotion at seeing the damage that both Hurricane Harvey and Irma are causing in our country. It’s times like these that we are Americans pull together – and that’s exactly what has been happening over the past few weeks and days.
Please read below to see how Stampin’ Up! is making a differece with pledging aid to those hit by these storms.
From Stampin’ Up! :
Along with many of you, we are watching with concern as stories
unfold about the devastation left behind in Texas and Louisiana by
Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey. Though no one knows how many lives
have been affected, Harvey is said to be one of the worst natural
disasters in U.S. history, and the damage caused by massive flooding
will be felt for years to come.
With you, we’re also trying to
stay informed on the progress of Hurricane Irma; as we write this, Irma
has not yet made landfall but is currently classified as a catastrophic
Category 5 storm. It will almost certainly leave as much destruction in
its wake as Hurricane Harvey and will affect the lives of tens of
thousands of people.
As a Stampin’ Up! family, we invite you to
help us give to those who are now (or will soon be) trying to rebuild
their lives. From now until the end of October, Stampin’ Up! will match
donations made to the American Red Cross, dollar-for-dollar, for up to
$50,000. Please click HERE to donate.
Together, we can do incredible things! We hope you’ll join us . . . because we truly can make a difference.
And of course today is Sept. 11. We will never forget that day. Prayers going out for many in our country today.
