A few weeks ago, after waiting for many months to come up with the right name, I had an idea, my downline seemed to approve and Stampin' Up! OK'd it right away. My downline and I are now the "Stampers for Others". Doing for others is a primary concern for me and I wanted my downline to have an entree into incorporating philanthropy (if they so choose) into their demonstratorship. One downline is making thank you cards for fellow breast cancer patient's necessities bags they might get. Another is asking her customers to make cards for our military abroad. I am going to connect with our local Ronald McDonald House Charities contact person and see if they have any card needs. The point is, let's find something or someone who can benefit from our shared passion. So, voila, after tweaking my son's Jesuit priest run high school's mantra which is to educate boys to become "men for others" (and they do!), I tweaked that to come up with Stampers for Others.
This new group, which is only inclusive of my 1st thru 5th level downline welcomes 4 new first-level downline as of the 15th when the $85 Starter Kit promotion began. I warmly welcome the following crafters into my group:
Chris from Idaho
Amy from New York
Mary from Texas
Dorgene from Wisconsin
