Remember last year when I held my October Charity Drive? We raised a total of $200 between all of you generous ladies and my own contribution. WELL, it's that time of year again!
I'm combining a few things this time:
- I'm moving! It was a last minute decision but I'm heading down to my parents' house for a few months (and is also why I haven't announced my giveaway winner yet -- things have been very hectic here, and I apologize!). This means LOTS of packing.. which means I need to clear inventory.. which means deals for you! I'll post more about this later.
- Longer period of time: This time, it's not only going to be for the month of October.. it's extending all the way through Thanksgiving (my way of giving thanks for all of the support to enable me to continue on to a second holiday season!), all the way until I close orders for the holiday season (early December). This way, you get to combine gift-purchasing and giving to charity.. all at once!
- The ultimate reason: giving back to society and those who are in need. The two charities that I have chosen this year are RedCross.Org (American Red Cross) or Cancer.Org (American Cancer Society). If there's another charity of your choice, let me know in the comments below and I may add a third organization to the list if there are enough votes :) HOWEVER, be sure to include a secondary choice (ARC or ACS) in case your charity was not added to the list.
- On that note, I am thinking of setting up a separate PayPal account for anyone who wants to donate without purchasing or donating more than their purchase out of the own generosity of their heart to this MotoJewelry Charity Drive. Let me know if this option interests you at all ^^
- $10 of your order will go to the charity of your choice. Whether you order by the "add cart" feature on each post or if you send me an e-mail, be sure to include which charity you would like your donation to be directed towards!
- On orders above $50, 20% of your order will be donated to the charity of your choice (since 20% of $50 is $10... the more you purchase, the more you give! makes sense, right?). Again, be sure to include the name of the charity you wish to donate to.
- Free first class shipping on US domestic orders of $50 or more, international for $65 or more.
- Free priority shipping on orders of $75 or more for US domestic orders. International orders, free shipping on $90 or more!
- Follow me on Twitter to get ahead of the game! Items are usually posted there before they are posted on the blog, I occasionally post "free shipping" codes or other discount codes, and sometimes I even post pieces with a "Twitter only" discounted price.
Again, let me know if there's another charity that you would like to see on the list, and if you have any other comments or questions :) and be sure to keep your eyes out for Twitter and blog updates. If I think of anything else to add, I'll be sure to link back to this post.
I hope you are all having a great day (: and I hope to hear from you soon!
