Like I said last month, on the second of every month this year, I’m going to be asking you, my loyal readers, to do something. It’s nothing that will drastically change your life in any way, or your financial situation, but it will help others. And potentially, in some cases help to save a life, or to bring people together. Which is what this month’s charity will do.
Every month in 2010, my awesometalentedsupercool friend Yoyo is donating 100% of one days’ profits in her webstore to a different charity. January was the Villalobos Rescue Center, February was the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program, March was Mollie’s Fund, and this month it’s Let’s Bring ‘Em Home at LBEH.org. Let’s Bring ‘Em Home is an organization that was brought to my attention by someone I know for a very long time (I met him last century, haha), John, and I passed on the information to Yoyo, and she picked them for April’s donation. What they do is they collect money (or frequent flyer miles) and buy tickets for soldiers so they can come home to their families for the holidays. Hence the name, Let’s Bring ‘Em Home! A very worthy cause if you ask me. So again, what am I asking of you?
I’m asking you to buy something from TOPSTITCH on April 2nd. That’s this FRIDAY. You have about three days to prepare, and then once Friday comes, you have a whole 24 hours to make a purchase. It doesn’t have to be a big purchase… even a small $2.00 order can mean a lot to an organization that needs money to help people who need it. So go check out what TOPSTITCH has to offer and then on Friday, go back and buy something! Yoyo will be adding a LOT more items to her store by then as well (including a new item- key fobs!). I definitely have been making my contributions each month. So should you. She has plenty of affordable items, and they’re all one-of-a-kind and well made. So please think about contributing to this cause and in return getting an awesome handmade item!
And don’t just shop at TOPSTITCH today, shop there everyday.
