TRIM TAGS.... 25 sets and counting at my ETSY shop ......
7 very pretty sets at my Lollishop
As I am planning out the next couple of months I find myself committed to some absolutely great and fun things!
I am co- coordinator of our church's program called Christmas Wishes that helps 300 families have a present filled Christmas, I am Room Mom for My son Jaedin's Kindergarten class so I get to work with some lovely Mom's to create Fall & Winter Parties, Date nights with my Husband and Hospitality Leader at mops. Fun, Fun stuff!!
But there is one last Fundraiser for the year I'd like to do in my Etsy shop.
It's kind of sad for me but the I will be phasing Trim Tags out of my Etsy shop for a while to be brought back for a few months next year. I have almost 50 Trim Tags made up. These will be sold individually and some will be in sets of 3. Some I've shown and some that have yet to be revealed. What I would like to do is mesh Operation Christmas Child and selling out of Trim Tags together and make it so that these tags will buy at least 10 Operation Christmas Child Boxes.
Operation Christmas Child ~ Sharing a message of God's Love in a box full of blessings for children in poverty stricken areas.
To make an Operation Christmas child box I will buy a plastic container for .97 cents at Walmart. The reason I will buy plastic tubs instead of using shoe boxes is that some of these children in such poor conditions they will be able to use these plastic boxes for carrying water or using them to carry their belongings as they travel from home to home.
The boxes will then be filled with socks, shoes, crayons, coloring book, toothpaste, toothbrush, stuffed animal and other gift like items. I'm planning for each box of gifts to cost about $28.00 total.
Multiply that by 7 boxes and our fund raising goal is $200.00
The funds raised from Trim Tags will be used to pay for the $7 each box costs to ship to it's country. I will then receive info on what country my boxes have gone to and will be able to share that with you on my blog.
Doesn't that sound fantastic!?
I will also show you how my kids and I have shopped, packed, and prayed over our boxes.
This fund raising will take place one full week starting October Wednesday 21st & Closing Wednesday October 28th.
I will fill my etsy shop on Tuesday evening with as many Trim Tags as possible! To be ready for anyone that might like to get the best selection on Wednesday :)
