Benefits of Tea

Over the years, people have been learning the great health benefits to drinking tea. But how about the benefits of making a teapot for charity? I think its just as healthy...for the soul!

There's nothing better than the gift of giving and especially when its for a good EXCELLENT cause! Stampin' Up! has partnered with Ronald McDonald House as its charity of choice. So, demonstrators who live close to one can volunteer and help. The methods and commitment vary from house to house but I just love ours. The house brings comfort and provides a “home-away-from-home” for families so they can stay close by their hospitalized child at little or no cost.  But they provide a lot more! To continue these various programs and in maintaining the house, the OC Ronald McDonald House is having their annual High Tea. We've been asked to make party favors for their guests.

Aren't these just clever? Our fearless leader, Karen Moody, drafted this sample to use at the Orange County Ronald McDonald House High Tea Event. (And by the way, not all McDonalds contribute to this charity and wasn't even started by McDonalds, the fast food chain. Just a fact I learned.) Anyway, I'm having an event where you can come and help me make some of these to send off. As a thank you, you'll also get to make one for yourself to take home with you.
