Stampin' Up! Making a Difference

I love being part of a company that has MAKING A DIFFERENCE as one of it’s core values. Thank you Stampin’UP! In addition to Granting a Wish through the Make A Wish Foundation in honor of it’s demonstrators, Stampin’UP! is donating half a million dollars to variety of organizations throughout the United States.

Stampin' Up! gives back at the holidays

At Stampin’ Up!, we believe in making a difference in the lives of others–whether they’re our demonstrators, our employees, the people who use our products, or children in need of a way to express their creativity.

Since 2005, Stampin’ Up! has been honored to participate in the TODAY Show’s Holiday Toy Drive. This year, Stampin’ Up! will be donating over $500,000 worth of stamping and paper crafting products to the following organizations:

•Action for Boston Community Development Inc.
•Alliance for Children’s Rights
•Boys & Girls Clubs Harford County
•Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of New York
•Community Partners of Dallas – Rainbow Room
•Diocese of Saint Augustine
•Friendship Project
•Help USA
•Interfaith Nutrition Network (INN)
•Kids In Need Foundation
•National Council of Jewish Women, Cleveland Section – The Dignity Project
•Operation Homefront
•Puerto Rican Family Institute
•St. Luke’s Roosevelt Hospital
•Stephen Siller Foundation/Katrina Fund
•Welcome House
•Youthbuild USA
In conjunction with the donation, Stampin’ Up!’s Shelli Gardner will make an appearance on NBC’s TODAY Show on Tuesday, December 6. We are honored and excited to once again participate in this annual holiday tradition of giving back and making a difference!


Three-year-old Birklee has a new wooden play set, a play set that she enjoys playing on with her family and friends. The play set helps take her mind off the things that a typical toddler shouldn’t have to be worried about, things like surviving hypoplastic left-heart syndrome (HLHS).

Birklee received the play set through the Make-A-Wish Foundation, when Stampin’ Up! granted her wish. We work with the foundation to grant the wish of at least one child every year, on behalf of our demonstrators and in lieu of an annual Christmas card.

“Through this donation, we hope our demonstrators feel how much we love and appreciate all they do, and that we celebrating our shared commitment to making a difference in the lives of those around us,” says Shelli Gardner.

Stampin’ Up! shares Make-A-Wish’s commitment to children, and we especially appreciate the organization’s desire to “enrich the human experience with hope, strength, and joy.”

Birklee wish has certainly done that. The play set was completed recently, and Birklee and her family and friends celebrated with a fun princess party.
