Last week was our first Pink With Purpose Event. I wanted to take some time to thank everyone for stopping by and supporting us. This event was hosted by Annie, Michelle and myself. All three of us have something in common, we are Cancer Survivors.
When I was diagnosed these two beautiful women blessed me with an abundance of love, encouragement and support. They had a lot of wise words from their own experience and I am so grateful they took the time to help me. I am certainly blessed to have them in my life.
Our guests "dropped by" between the hours of 10 am and 2 pm enjoyed favors, free make and takes and door prizes.
The favors were pink ribbon pencils that were topped with a ribbon I cut out using the Support Ribbon framelits.
The Support Ribbon Framelit also has this cute heart shaped framelit that I used as the focal point for the Thank You Sentiment. What is awesome about these framelits is that you can cut them out in different colors to show your support for many different causes.
Our Make and Takes were these two cards and we offered a free Pink Post It Note holder to any Cancer Survivor who stopped by that day.
We are so grateful for everyone who was able to attend.
One of my demonstrator friends from Minnesota named Brenda was on the island at the perfect time, so she was able to stop by that day!
We even had a visit from a Queen when HRH Kehau stopped by to support us. It was a sunny day out which is why she has her glasses on her head, otherwise I'm sure she'd be wearing her tiara!
When Juliet stopped by, she brought me this beautiful plant. I had never seen this type of Calla Lilly before. Juliet also made me an adorable card.
Here is a close up of the card.
Isn't this sweet little hedge hog cute? This card was made from our Painted Harvest Stamp Set. I loved the fun and out of the box way this card was created.
We were spoiled at this event with wonderful refreshments. That is because they were coordinated and prepared by Annie who is a Pampered Chef consultant and a wiz in the kitchen.
In addition to these yummy treats, Annie also demonstrated how to make Coconut Whipping Cream using the new Pampered Chef whipped cream maker that is available in pink during the month of October. Purchasing this item also helps raise funds for Breast Cancer Awareness. I was so excited to learn how to make this healthier version of Whipping Cream that was simple to make and oh so delicious!
We had a retired stamp sale at this event as well.
Our heart at this event was to raise funds for Hawaii's Hope Lodge. We did that by having a donation jar that you could drop any sized donation into.
Thank you to all who donated and who purchased Stampin' Up! or Pampered Chef products that day as a portion of our commission will be going to help Hope Lodge as well.
Annie brought these wonderful flyers so we could all be aware of the other needs that Hope Lodge has.
We will be collecting donations until November 10th so if you want to help Hope Lodge with any donation please let us know and we'd be happy to add it to all we will be taking to them on November 11th.
These cards were mailed to me during my recent Breast Cancer Battle. As each card arrived I was so touched by all the kind words and loving support. This encourages me to now "give back" by partnering together with Annie and Michelle to be a blessing to Hope Lodge. I hope you will be encouraged to join us as well. No matter how big or small, what you are able to give matters!
If you would like to join us please let one of us know so we can continue to bless and support this wonderful organization that is making a difference in Hawaii for those battling Cancer.
Always remember that YOU can make a difference! Let's continue to do that Together!
