Nature’s Beauty for Mental Health. In support of mental health around the globe, Stampin’ Up! is donating a portion of each sale of the Nature’s Beauty stamp set to mental health organizations. Here is a Stampin’ Up! sample card made with stamps from the set.
The stamp set is in the 2019 holiday catalog (p. 63), and the announcement is timely. World Mental Health Day is October 10, which is fast approaching. Organized by the World Federation for Mental Health, it is a day for us to unite in our efforts to improve the mental health of people around the world.
The theme for this year’s day is suicide prevention. Unfortunately, I have been personally affected by suicide, and I support the efforts to raise awareness of the scale of suicide, as well as the role that each of us can play to help prevent it. Every 40 seconds someone loses their life to suicide. So, on this year’s October 10 World Mental Health Day, we are encouraged to take “40 seconds of action” to help show that we care. The 40 seconds can be private or public, intended to improve knowledge about suicide and assist those who may be struggling.
Stampin’ Up! also wants to lend a hand and support mental health globally. They have identified organizations and agencies around the world as beneficiaries of $3 of each sale of the Nature’s Beauty Stamp set. In the United States, the proceeds will go to NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, an advocacy group headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, whose mission is “dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness”.
The Nature’s Beauty stamp set includes nine cling stamps with images of nature and wild animals. Use these striking images of nature to create a quiet scene for any project, and pair the images with your favorite greeting set for any occasion.

Did you know that you can sell projects you’ve made with Stampin’ Up!’s copyrighted images if they include “© Stampin’ Up!” on them? We could use the Nature’s Beauty set to create projects to sell or donate for charity.
Help make a difference with your purchase of this stamp set – $3 of every sale goes to support mental health. Thank you for helping those who receive assistance from NAMi and other mental health organizations. I am purchasing this set to support this cause, and I am also grateful for your efforts.
Thank you for visiting my site today. I hope you have found the information informative. Together, we will do great things.
