Because I can not say it any better than the words of Stampin' Up's! CEO, Shelli Gardner, I have decided to share what she had to say on her website about helping the people of Fiji and making a difference while we were there!
"For us, the highlight was definitely the service project. We planned an optional half-day service project for any demonstrators who wanted to participate, and approximately 200 demonstrators and guests joined us at a Fiji hospital and orphanage, providing valuable work. We went to the hospital and sanded, painted, did yard work, and other general clean-up chores. A smaller group went to the orphanage and folded laundry, read to kids, and papercrafting (a huge hit!). Loved the opportunity to turn our yearlong “Making a Difference for 25 Years” theme into action!"
I also couldn't resist sharing this awesome picture of the Gardner clan! Yup! That's right, each and every one of them worked right along side all of us to make the both the hospital and the orphanage a better place!
I LOVE being part of a company that makes such a significant difference in the lives of so many and does so willingly and with such grace and elegance! Thank you all for being a part of my Stampin' Up! business and giving me the opportunity to inspire all of you to create and share your creativity with others! I LOVE you all!!
