Thanks for popping in.
Happy National Christmas Jumper Day!
Did you know that this annual event started in 2012, and this particular National Day is dedicated to Save the Children. That’s right. It’s a Charity Drive to raise money for the Save the Children Fund. Paul was telling me that on one random Friday in December every year, people would go to work everywhere wearing Christmas Jumpers instead of suits, and then put at least a pound in the Charity box. He worked in the city, and said it was a big thing. What a cool idea. Like Mufti Day for adults!
Well, at Clarity, we’ve got a plan too. In case you didn’t join us in the SHAC-SHAC, here’s what we’ve come up with.
We have a delightful Christmas Jumper Stamp set, which our Jim designed years ago. Very lovely and great fun to use. Comes with an all important mask too. I’ll do a step by step project tomorrow, of these wonderful art pieces, designed by our every clever Dee Paramour xxx
Anyway, back to the Stamp set:
If you buy the stampset for £19.99, we will make and send it to you as usual. Here’s the good bit: ALL proceeds – 100% – will go to Save the Children.
So the money you spend on a smashing Jumper Stampset – ALL the money – goes to SAVE THE CHILDREN. We don’t make any money at all, in fact our contribution of course is the manufacture and dispatch of all the stamps you are going to buy! I reckon we will be able to write a handsome cheque for the Children, because I KNOW you get it, and I know you care.
On the news this week, there was a report on how many children are living rough, are destitute. The numbers are staggering. Shocking. It beggars belief, but there it is. We hear those shocking facts, and we think, “that’s terrible, but the crisis is so massive, what can I do? Me on my own?” Thing is, EVERY LITTLE HELPS. As a Clarity Community, as a GROUP of Crafters, of SHAC Shackers, we can actually DO GOOD. Do a lot of GüD!
I just looked, and we have already made over £800. WOW. That is very very cool. Will you help us get it up to over £1,000? THAT would be epic. It’s not millions, but it’s a kind gesture from all of us, and together we are much, MUCH stronger than the sum of our parts.
Jim has added a Just Giving Button to this morning’s SHAC recording on our Youtube channel too. So you can make a donation without buying the stamps too, if you already have them, but you would still like to contribute.
Stay Safe. And thank you for being kind today xxx
