I just got this note from Kimba:
“We have sold over 200 bracelets. And I’m stunned. We sold out of our first batch by 11:30 yesterday morning. Then we expedited another big order so we could fill more orders and sold out of those by 4:30. Now have a 3rd order on the way. This is going to make for a nice donation to Compassion. More than double our original goal.”
So to you all I say, THANK YOU! You helped make this happen, and I am just so thankful. If you haven’t got the bracelet yet, you can get it here. Also, there is still time to enter the giveaway!
This is the speaker team from the first Relevant (now Allume) conference!
Today I have a guest post from one of my first ever bloggy friends! Anyone remember Kimba from A Soft Place to Land (she’s the gal I have my arm around in the above picture)? If you do, you miss her in the online space as much as I do! Well, she may not be blogging anymore, but that doesn’t mean she’s disappeared from the interwebs! She’s been busy on a little project called, Everyday Icing. I’ll let her tell you all about it. Oh, and make sure you stick around to the end of the post, there is a giveaway!
Thank you to the dear Sarah Mae for letting me tell you about my new Facebook-based business and something exciting we’re doing to benefit Compassion International. And you won’t want to miss out on the fabulous giveaway at the end of this post!
Everyday Icing was born out of a love for designer accessories, but not designer prices. We’re busy moms with a budget to watch and we love how a fabulous piece of jewelry can take an outfit from plain to fabulous!
How does it work?
Everyday Icing combines social media and shopping, so first you need to “like” our Facebook page. Our sales are every Monday at 9pm (eastern) directly on our facebook page and some weeks we have special themed sales on Thursday…things like Scarf-A-Palooza and Nautical Night.
Each week we offer 20-30 different items for a fixed price (usually between $12-$20) and shipping is always FREE! We post pictures of the items for sale along with a desciption, the price and the quantity that we have. There are limited quantities of each item and when they’re gone, they’re gone. So be quick!
Shopping with us is EASY!
To make a purchase:
1. “Like” our Facebook page and visit us during our sales on Monday nights. Hit refresh often to see the new items as the come up.
2. Comment “Sold” with your email address on any delicious deal that you can’t resist. To keep your email private, click our “Register to Shop” tab on our home page, then you can just comment “Sold”.
3. Pay the invoice that you receive via Paypal.
That’s it! We’ll ship your fabulous treats directly to your door! If you have more questions,we have a “How to Bid” tab on our page that explains more.
What does this have to do with Compassion International?
Like a lot of you, we’re passionate about the work that Compassion does to release children from spiritual, economic, social and physical poverty. They are doing the Lord’s work in a powerful way.
We have committed to give 10% of our profits to directly to Compassion, but we want to do more! Today, we are offering one fabulous item, our Compassion Bracelet, and 100% of the proceeds from that bracelet are going to Compassion. Our hope is to raise $1,000 with this one special item. We would love for you to stop by and pick up our fabulous Compassion Bracelet and support their important work at the same time.
