Win by doing good!!! Our annual fundraiser for Michelle's Love!

Customers who have been with me for a while are familiar with our annual charity drive. Since it started, we have been supporting a non-profit started by a friend of mine, Andy McCandless, in honor of her best friend Michelle Singleton who died of cancer leaving behind four children. When Andy lived in Phoenix, she started the organization called Singleton Moms. When she moved to Portland, Ore., she continued to spread the love by starting another organization there to serve her new city called Michelle's Love!!! Michelle's Love is a recognized 501c(3) organization and all donations are tax deductible. Michelle's Love is in its second year of operation and is already helping a number of single parents undergoing treatment for cancer with house cleaning, healthy meals and bill payment. You can be part of this amazing organization with your donation. Since this is a COMPLETELY VOLUNTEER organization, all the money you donate will go directly to these wonderful mothers who are caring for minor children on their own and dealing with diagnoses and treatments for cancer.

So, for the next three weeks, I am asking 7 KIDS customers to open their hearts and their pocketbooks with a small donation to this incredible organization. You can give as little as $5 or as much as your heart (or bank account) allows. Your donation is tax deductible and you will receive a receipt for you taxes!

To make donating fun and exciting, I am setting up donation thresholds and will add addition GIFT CERTIFICATE PRIZES as we meet these goals.

To start, I am offering five $20 gift certificates. In order to be eligible to win one, you need to make a donation of $5 or more to MICHELLE'S LOVE. You will receive one entry per $5 increment of donation. So, if you donate $20, you will have 4 entries in the drawing and you can win more than one gift certificate!!!

However, if customers are generous and donations increase, I will add more gift certificates!!! Here are the donation levels and prizes.

3 additional $20 gift certificates
$50 gift certificate
$100 gift certificate

If we can raise over $1500 for this great charity, there will be over $300 in gift certificates available to win!

DONATE NOW to be entered to win!
(Donation button is at the bottom of the page.)


All winners will be announced on Monday, Nov. 11. Entries will be taken until midnight Arizona time on Nov. 10. Each $5 increment of donation = one entry. Donors can win more than one gift certificate.
