I Gave at Ronald McDonald Home Charities, Find Out How You Can Too!

Helping a sick child fight a serious illness or injury places a huge emotional strain on a family. Add worries about finances and a family can become overwhelmed. Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) help families stay near their hospitalized child at little or no cost, allowing them to focus on helping their child heal, not on where they will stay or get their next meal. Learn more about RONALD MCDONALD HOUSE CHARITIES.

Since 2003, Stampin’ Up! has partnered with RMHC to help families stay close to their hospitalized children. Their commitment to RMHC is four-fold:

  • Each year, Stampin’ Up! has contributed $100,000 to RMHC. To date, they have contributed $1.5 million to RMHC and their network of local RMHC Chapters.
  • Each year, they design an exclusive stamp set and donate a portion of the proceeds to RMHC.
  • Stampin’ Up! donates cards and other crafting projects created at Stampin’ Up! events to local Houses.
  • Stampin’ Up! helps organize teams of demonstrators to conduct activities in local Houses. I have been honored (along with other demonstrators) to volunteer my time at one of the local homes here in Central Florida.

These are the happy faces of a few RMHC residents who participated in a class I gave on Monday evening. Their delight in doing something fun is infectious!

This is the current Stampin’ UP! has designed for the 2018-2019 annual catalog.

It’s called Sharing Sweet Thoughts and Stampin’ Up! donates $3 when you buy this stamp set which you can purchase at my online store.

Here’s a Mini Gift Bag project using the Sharing Sweet Thoughts stamp set. Below you can find a list of the products used and a PDF with instructions.

Ronald McDonald House Charities

At Stampin’ Up!, they are huge fans of the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  Many families have to travel far from home to get treatment for their seriously ill children.  And, for a child facing a serious medical crisis, nothing seems scarier than not having mom and dad close by.

The Ronald McDonald House program provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close to their hospitalized child at little or no cost.  The Houses are built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child — not where they can afford to stay, where they will get their next meal or where they will sleep at night.

Each year, Stampin’ Up! designs an exclusive stamp set and donates a portion of the proceeds from the each sale of that set directly to the Ronald McDonald House Charities.  They have donated over one million dollars to the Ronald McDonald House Charities, and are excited to continue their partnership with this great program.

The Stampin’ Up! artists have outdone themselves with this year’s Ronal McDonald House Charities set.  It’s called Tag It, and you can find it on page 45 of the 2013-2014 catalog.  The images in this set are versatile and fun, and your Tag It creations will definitely brighten anyone’s day!  They also coordinate with our Chalk Talk Framelits, which will make it simple for you to create tags for just about any occasion.  We’ve used both the “celebrate” and the “to and from” stamps from this set to create a simple tag for a birthday gift.

The Tag It stamp set is also featured on the back page of the catalog, with a reminder that we will donate $3 to the Ronald McDonald House Charities when you purchase this set.

Please contact me to find out how you can create beautiful hand-stamped projects like this one, all while helping to support this wonderful charity.
