Birthday Wishes Challenge

Stampin' Up! has a long history of supporting philanthropic causes. 'Helping others' and 'making a difference' is part of our mission statement. Over the past two decades, almost three decades in fact, we are very proud to have seen demonstrators all over the world embrace these words and make a difference in the lives of others.

We are excited to be celebrating our 10th anniversary in the UK, and to mark this special occasion, Stampin' Up! UK has set a challenge to make a whopping 10,000 cards across two card-making weekends during 2017. These cards will be donated to the Ronald McDonald House Charities. The first card-making weekend is called ‘Birthday Wishes Challenge’ and takes place between Friday 23 June and Sunday 25 June.  The second card-making weekend is called ‘Christmas Cheer Challenge’ and takes place between Friday 1 December and Sunday 3 December.

About Ronald McDonald House Charities

Ronald McDonald House Charities provides free 'home away from home' accommodation to families while their child is in hospital. There are 14 Ronald McDonald Houses across the UK, all located close to specialist children's hospitals. The Houses are open 365 days a year and are equipped with everything you would find in a family home. Families can get a good night's sleep, prepare their own meals and feel at home, knowing that they are only moments away from their child (http://www.rmhc.org.uk/what-we-do/).

We would love your help!

As our Birthday Wishes challenge takes place first, we would like to share some information about the challenge, and let you know how you could get involved. 

  • On Friday 23 June, Stampin’ Up! UK is collaborating with demonstrator helpers at a special kick-off event at Evelina House in London, this event will officially launch our Birthday Wishes card-making weekend.  We love a challenge and we are ready to roll up our sleeves and make lots of cards.
