The Heart of Stampin’ Up! Application Period Is Almost at an End!
The 2019 Heart of Stampin’ Up! application period ends June 30, 2019! Don’t miss your chance to be a #SUdifferencemaker. Click here to find out more about the Heart of Stampin’ Up! Award.
Here are some thoughts from the 2018 Heart of Stampin’ Up! West recipient, Pam Jorgensen.
“Passion. We all have something in our lives we feel strongly about and want to support. In my case living in an area with high rates of cancer but limited access to local treatment, it became a passion of mine, and my team, after this disease closely impacted our “stamping family”. As our community strived to build a regional cancer center, we held small Stamp Out Cancer events to support fundraising for our local hospital.
When the new Heart of Stampin’ Up! process was announced, I immediately thought of how corporate support could make a difference in our community. Completing the application was not hard but facing the unknown was the challenge. I questioned my project and wasn’t sure it was large enough, or worthy enough, for corporate support. In fact, the application was almost never sent! On the last day, at almost the last possible moment to apply, I pushed the button to send the application I had worked on a month earlier. I told myself I had nothing to lose, as I would continue to fundraise for the center no matter what happened.
I was so excited when Sara shared that my project had been chosen. However, happiness was quickly squashed as my insecurities popped up again on how I was now going to implement this project. I should have known better as Stampin’ Up! was there from the beginning to the end providing guidance and support throughout the entire process. Stampin’ Up! gave me the confidence and support to more than quadruple the amount of people attending the fundraiser and the amount we could give. Together we truly made a difference!
I highly encourage everyone to reflect on their passion, step out of their comfort zone, and apply for the Heart of Stampin’ Up! Personally, I will be forever grateful to Stampin’ Up! for their belief in giving back and supporting my passion to be a #SUdifferencemaker.“
