Good morning! Chores are mostly done- I’m going to play in my haven until my laundry is done, then it’ll be time to pack and get ready for swimming lessons after school and our road trip into Edmonton! Busy, busy!
We somehow escaped the crazy wind that seemed to plague most of the province yesterday…we did have some, but nowhere near the 100 km/hr gusts they were forecasting. I even heard some people heard thunder along with the storm. Then I started hearing about all the other wildfires burning in and around the provinces of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Anyone else flabbergasted that we’re still hearing about wildfires so late in the year?! One of them is burning in the area my mother in law lives. Scary stuff!
I’m not sure if I posted it here or not, but there is a stamp set that’s on sale right now through Close to My Heart that was designed with the victims of all the tragedies- natural and otherwise- occurring in the world as of late. If I did post about it, this is a good reminder! See it below.
It is called Stronger Together (item # C1716). The name of the stamp set is inspiring in itself, isn’t it? I love the message it conveys, and find it incredibly true. The world needs to hear this message, IMO. The sentiments in the stamp set are meant to bring strength and encouragement and provide a light in the darkness that many of the victims are experiencing in their lives. All of the proceeds from the sale of this stamp set will go directly to the Red Cross Disaster Relief efforts. No commission is collected from the sale of this stamp set; its sole intent is to provide help and relief to those in need.
If you know of anyone that was affected by the devastating hurricanes, wildfires, shootings, earthquakes and any other natural disaster affecting our world, please think about donating to this cause by purchasing this wonderful stamp set. You’ll be helping someone in need. Get yours for $17.25 CAD.
