It has been a hectic week and I just now had a chance to upload pictures from the cruise. I will share a re-cap in tomorrow's post, but today I wanted to share about this year's service project. As part of Stampin' Up!'s Making a Difference initiative, they have incorporated service opportunities in most events, including the incentive trips. Last year, we painted and did yard maintenance for a local hospital in Fiji.
This year, we were a little more restricted since we were on a cruise ship. In addition to collecting supplies and clothes to donate, Stampin' Up! sponsored a Walk-a-Thon. For every lap we walked around the ship's jogging track, the Shelli and Sterling Gardner Family Foundation donated $1.50 to Mission of Hope, Haiti -- a fantastic organization working to rebuild communities in Haiti . . . one house and community project at a time.
The track was packed full with orange shirts during the Walk-A-Thon and other cruisers even got involved! Jim and I walked 10 laps -- the equivalent of 2.5 miles, I think. All together, we raised enough money to sponsor the building of three homes for Haitian residents!
