Thanks for popping in.
The Russian forces are scaling up their aggression in their bid to defeat or destroy Ukraine and its people – whichever comes first, it would seem. And we stand by, impotent. So we do whatever we can. We give clothes and blankets, and we give money. We give whatever we can. It helps the cause and it helps salve our consciences, our powerlessness.
At Clarity, we want to do our bit for Ukraine and the poor – courageous – Ukrainians too. Our Jim drew up a Sunflower stampset yesterday, and Laurent made a bunch today.
Now it is my turn to tell you about them…
For every Sunflower stampset we sell, 50% of the proceeds will go to The Red Cross.
So we make a symbolic stampset with a strong message – the Sunflower is the national flower of Ukraine. Then you buy that beautiful stampset and the money goes to The Red Cross. In so doing, we ALL do something to help, albeit a tiny gesture. But here’s the thing: many tiny gestures make a movement. Which makes us individuals feel a little less helpless, and part of a positive reaction to what can only be deemed as evil.
Then you lovely crafters get to work! You make loads of cards and send them to your friends, showing them how you feel. Or you sell them for charity, and make your own donations – and so it goes on…. You can buy multiple stampsets for craft-friends too. We’ll make as many as you want to buy. Do we make any profit? Nah. By the time the VATman and taxman, the polymer man and the packaging man have had their chunk of change, there’ll be your 50% left for the RED CROSS. And that’s fine by me. So you’ll forgive us for flicking the switch off on your Club Members’ discount. The objective here is to make as much money as we can for The Red Cross and the Ukrainian Crisis.

Mmm. No words. What else is there to say? I think I’ll do some colouring in. Blue and Yellow.
