A Muse Art Stamps – Card for a Cause
"In honor of World Card Making Day, A Muse has created a program called Cards for a Cause. The goal of our Cards for a Cause program is to encourage stampers to make cheerful cards that can be donated to either a charity near them that will put them to good use (could be sold to raise funds for the organization, given to patients, etc.), or send them to A Muse and we will donate them to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. A Muse Designers have created some fun card kits which are available for purchase. Each Cards for a Cause kit provides all the supplies to make 10 cards. Each kit offers the consumer a savings of 15% and A Muse will donate 25% of the purchase price to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Stampers are welcome to keep the cards, donate them to a local charity or send them to A Muse to be donated to St. Judeâ€™s. A Muse will be collecting Cards for a Cause through October 31st, 2007. We will ship all cards received to St. Jude's in early November. We are offering fun prize drawings for Cards for a Cause that are submitted to us. Beginning Monday, October 1st, we will draw a random winner each Monday in October from all the cards received. Winners will receive a $35 A Muse gift certificate. We will also randomly pick one Grand Prize winner from all cards received who will receive a $100 A Muse gift certificate. The Grand Prize drawing will take place on Thursday, November 9th. The Cards for a Cause kits are for sale on the A Muse News blog. The cards have all been designed to be simple and easy to make. The goal is to encourage even non-stampers to get involved with this program. We see this as a great way to introduce stamping and card-making to a larger audience AND a great way to raise much needed funds for St. Judeâ€™s, treating children from around the world without regard to the familyâ€™s ability to pay. You can see the kits for sale and read more about our Cards for a Cause program on the A Muse news blog. There is a link to the program and kits in the post at the top of the page."
