If you are a long-time 7 KIDS customer, you are aware that I do a charity raffle every year to support a special organization. For the last few years, I have been supporting an organization called Singleton Moms. This year, I am supporting a NEW organization started by one of the founding members of Singleton Moms. This new organization is called Singleton Love. Founding member Andy Royal moved from Phoenix to Portland, Ore., and is now providing services to single parents undergoing cancer treatment in that city. The special thing about this new organization is that it is entirely volunteer supported. That means every dime we donate will go straight to the parents who need help so desperately. Most organizations, obviously, have costly infrastructure and paid employees, which is not a bad thing as these are needed to run larger organizations. But the beauty of a small, start-up organization like Singleton Love is that our donations will have a more direct impact on the people they intend to help! Singleton Love will be providing the following services to single parents undergoing cancer treatment: bill payment assistance, house cleaning, and meal delivery.
To start, I am raffling off the freebies I received at CHA, as well as 2 Prima Hats decorated by 7 KIDS DT member Rhea Weigand! Look for more pictures of flowers and embellishments in the raffle soon! I will be adding additional products as I receiving extras or donations from my vendors. Keep checking back for new items added to the raffle!
With this raffle, we are donating the seed money to the organization to start helping single parents undergoing cancer treatment. Last year, 7 KIDS customers donated over $1500. Let's beat that this year!!! Remember, all money donated will go directly to the parents Singleton Love is helping!!!
In order to be entered to win prizes, please do the following:
1) Make a donation to Singleton Love. There is a donation button on the front page of their website. All donations are through PayPal. At this time, Singleton Love has submitted their 501c(3) paperwork, but has not been approved. Donations are NOT currently tax deductible. When Singleton Love is granted their non-profit status, you will receive a receipt for your tax records.
2) Forward me the e-mail confirmation from PayPal of your donation. e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. For every $5 you donate, you will receive one entry in the drawing. If you donate $5, you will receive ONE entry. If you donate $50, you will receive 10 entries. The more you donate, the greater your chance of winning!
3) Donations made through March 22 will be eligible for the drawing. Winners will be announced here on March 23!
I am clearancing out Bildmalarna stamps from the store starting at 50%. Look for ever-increasing discount levels, but shop now for the best selection on these stamps!
Saying goodbye is not always easy, but 7 KIDS is making room for some great new stamps from Whimsy Stamps (that means Sylvia Zet and more Elisabeth Bell stamps), La Blanche and Lawn Fawn! Look for those stamps to be in the store soon.
