Stamping for a great cause!

Share |
I received the following email from Tanya Dallaire, one of the demonstrators in our group. I told her I'd be happy to share this information with all of you in the hopes of reaching a great audience!!


Calling all Stampers…. Stamp for a Cause…

My name is Tanya Dallaire and I am writing to you from Markham.

Pictured above is Shania Johnston, a brave 8 year old girl in our family’s community. Shania is doing battle with a form of childhood cancer called Neuroblastoma. Before the holidays, she underwent a bone marrow transplant and she is on the road to recovery and hopefully also on the road to beating the odds and being one of the 20-25% of children who survive this terrible cancer.

To raise money for Neuroblastoma Research, Shania and some of her friends starting making and selling necklaces and bracelets (see Shania’s story at the link above). Shania’s fundraising efforts have turned into “Shania’s Sunflower of Hope”. She has grown from necklaces and bracelets to “Sunflower of Hope” t’shirts and now, Shania will be hosting her 1st Annual Children’s Fun Fair at the Markham Fair grounds on Saturday April 28th from 10am to 5pm. Her school and community are rallying with her to make all this happen.

I have offered to set up a children’s “Stamping Station” at the Fun Fair with all proceeds going to Shania’s Sunflower of Hope.

In addition to having children make their own stamping projects, I had the “notion” of selling some “Handmade with Love” sets of cards – again, with 100% of proceeds going to Shania’s Sunflower of Hope. This is the reason for my note…

I couldn’t possibly make enough cards myself so I am writing today to enlist the help (and enthusiasm J) of fellow stampers like you. If you could find some time to make/donate 5 or more any-occasion cards (and matching envelopes, if possible), I would be so grateful for your help!

My hope is that, while their children are enjoying the fun of making a project, parents will purchase packages of home-made cards. This will make the “Stamping Station” that much more of a fundraiser for Shania and her Sunflower of Hope campaign for Neuroblastoma Research.

Your cards can be packaged up or not. If you do package them up, please feel free to add a note like “Donated for Shania’s Sunflower of Hope…. Your Name, City etc). If you know any stampers across the country... please forward this note.

Your support greatly appreciated. It’s always great to have a reason to stamp – this one will raise money for cancer research.

Cards can be dropped off or mailed to me at:

Tanya Dallaire
65 Colonel Butler Drive
Markham ON L3P 6B2

Or, if you are local, I’ll be happy to pick them up from you. Just give me a call at (905) 294-1917.

(Please consider donating 5-10 hand made cards)

Many thanks again…

What a deserving cause and terrific event to be involved with! I'm off shortly on holidays for 2 weeks (a family cruise - 11 of us in total, but I'm sure when I get home I'll be able to whip up some cards for you.
Thanks for letting us all know about this!
