Stampin' Up! Uniting for Haiti

21 January 2010

Stamp set proceeds and 5000 hygiene kits to be donated for Haitian relief by Utah-based company--Stampin' Up!

SALT LAKE CITY--Destruction beyond belief is all that can be seen by those who have witnessed the aftermath of the 7.0 earthquake that struck Haiti on January 12, 2010. As the world comes to terms with the grief that the hand of nature has dealt, many people including Stampin' Up! employees, demonstrators and customers are looking for ways to help the people of Haiti.

Stampin' Up!, a Salt Lake City-based manufacturer of decorative rubber stamps and accessories for greeting cards, scrapbooks, craft projects, and home décor, will do its part by launching a global relief effort. From now through February 28, 2010, Stampin' Up! will donate $2 from the sale of every I {Heart} Hearts stamp set as part of its Making a Difference program to benefit the people of Haiti. 

Proceeds raised by Stampin' Up! will be donated to the American Red Cross' Haiti Relief and Development Fund. The Red Cross is already well-established in Haiti, and this money will be used to provide immediate relief and long-term support through supplies, technical assistance, and other support to help those in need.

"Our Statement of the Heart focuses on making a difference in the lives of people around us, and when we heard about the terrible things taking place in Haiti, we knew we had to help," said Shelli Gardner, Stampin' Up! co-founder and CEO. "Our employees, demonstrators, and customers are grateful to do what we can during this heartbreaking situation."

In addition to donating proceeds from the sales of the stamp set, Stampin' Up! has purchased the supplies necessary to assembly 5000 hygiene kits. The hygiene kits will be assembled by Stampin' Up! employees in the Riverton, Utah facility and sent for use in the Haiti relief efforts.

In the past, when terrorists attacked the Twin Towers, when a tsunami struck South Asia, when a hurricane destroyed New Orleans, and when wildfires ravaged Australia, Stampin' Up! employees, demonstrators, and customers stepped forward and showed their commitment to making a difference in the lives of others. We are proud to be able to continue that tradition.

To purchase the I {Heart} Hearts stamp set contact your own Stampin' Up! demonstrator or go to www.stampinup.com.
