So my good friend Christie Ortman (Paper Pretties)
and I were talking one day, feeling rather blessed,
and looking for a way to give back. We discussed doing some blog candy for those who had given of themselves. Very shortly after this conversation, Christie asked me how I would feel about creating a set for charity. I gave it some serious thought over the next several days before I responded back to her. I pondered how I could make it work; spoke with representatives from the charity we wished to support with the first set and finally responded back to Christie with a resounding YES!
So, I am very pleased and grateful to announce My Favorite Things first ever "MINIs on a Mission" set, Think Pink! This set will debut October 1st, with 50% of retail and 25% of wholesale proceeds going directly to benefit Breast Cancer initiatives. Almost everyone I know has been touched by Breast Cancer in some way and although great strides have been made in recent years, this disease has taken many of the women we love. I am proud to support what I believe is a wonderful and worthy cause. In coming to the decision to go forward with MINIs on a Mission, I have to thank Gina K., whose own Stamps With a Cause was a motivator and inspiration. I know how much good Gina has helped bring to many lives with her charity work and have to acknowledge her as the charity stamp set pioneer that she is! So, here's where you come in: My Favorite Things in cooperation with Paper Pretties, is giving away 2 Limited Edition Think Pink boxes to 2 lucky recipients! Christie says, "Here's how you can enter someone special: We want you to leave a comment here or here nominating someone who has made a difference in your community. Please give us their name and tell us why you think they should receive this box. We will choose our two winners on October 5th and send their boxes out right after that!
Thank you so much for supporting us in our effort to make a difference in the lives of so many!" There will be one winner from each of us, picked by Random.org on October 5th, so enter both places to double your chances! In addition, Christie will also be donating $5 from each Think Pink Limited Edition box to Breast Cancer initiatives in Canada as well! This is truly a WIN-WIN and one I am so happy to be involved in!!
