What a tangled web we weave...

I've said it before, but when I said that I'd donate $10 from every Blessed necklace to Compassion International for Haiti, I had no idea what I was getting myself into.


Are you keeping an eye on the total? It's over on the right, in my profile.
It goes up daily.
As of today, we're able to contribute $2,290!!

That is unreal.
I love it.
B.L.E.S.S.E.D. One letter at a time.
One necklace at a time.
Ten bucks at a time.
One package at a time.
(This is just one day's worth.)


I have a little help creating the items.
But I, alone, am the shipping department.
And the customer service department.
And the order processing department.
What an amazing journey this has been so far.

Keep up the support! It means so much.

The winner of the Sharing the Love giveaway is Suburban Stitcher.

I'm wondering if there's a company out there that's willing to match our donation.
Any suggestions?

WooHoo- I'm on my way to order one for one of my followers. :)


I wish I lived near you , I'd come help you stamp.


You should ask a company near you. Some big local company- like an insurance commpany or bank!

Or maybe the schools- the kids could do something?


Or how about asking for sponsors on your blog- they could match a day's orders or a set amount for a post on your blog featuring them or something?!

Paula said...

I just ordered one as well :) And maybe I'll order a few more once you've gotten through your pile of orders. What a gorgeous way to celebrate life and help others.
