Around the World

I posted about my experience laying sod in Kanab on our Stampin’ Up! day of service, but I didn’t have all the photos at the time to post about our other events around the world. As I looked through the hundreds of photos of employees and demonstrators giving of their time (and in some cases their resources too) to serve their communities, my heart was filled with gratitude, and I couldn’t help but shed a few tears!

As you may have seen on Sara’s post, dozens of bunkbeds, bedding sets, blankets, and books were donated to children in Utah.

Our employees in Canada picked up garbage and donations from seniors after spring cleaning in their neighborhood and delivered them to the dump or local donation drop-off.

In New Zealand, Emma worked with local demonstrators to gather retired product and created care packages for groups like women’s shelters and RMHC.  

Employees in Australia served food at a local homeless shelter and donated feminine hygiene products to women in shelters who have been victims of domestic violence.

Several projects kept our employees busy in Germany—assisting people on and off the trains, painting and stamping for the Salvation Army, and serving at the local food bank.

In the UK, employees and demonstrators held a card-making event at a community hospice center, providing time for the caregivers to relax and enjoy some creativity.

In China, employees will be collecting and donating supplies to an elementary school in a remote area that is currently rebuilding after damage from a mudslide (no photos).

And employees and demonstrators in Japan got together and stamped cards and donated them to Make-a-Wish Japan.

What amazing people I get to work with from around the world! I’m so glad we were able to take a break from our usual work and live our Statement of the Heart by helping others in our communities and making a difference!
